Stretching from the airport at the very south to the Paphos Bird’s and Animal Park and the stunning sea caves towards the northern parts, the city is a host of activities and options. Whether you are seeking complete relaxation by the beach, adventures in and around the sea or looking to explore the ancient sites and traditional streets of the city, you’re sure to find it here.
   Immediately near the small bay with its small fishing boats, you’ll find a profusion of historical ruins and buildings. The Archaeological Park is home to a wealth of ruins that bear witness to the rich history of the city and Cyprus. See the House of Dionysus, the ruins of the Forty Columns Fortress and marvel as the beautifully preserved mosaics that together with the other ancient monuments have made Paphos a UNESCO Heritage Site. The Tomb of the Kings as well as the medieval castle at the end of the harbour-front are also worth a visit for those seeking historical attractions.
   For those looking for golden beaches and water activities, there are numerous stretches of white sand and azure seascapes along the western coastline of Cyprus. Soak up the sun on dry land, sip a refreshing cocktail under the shade of a parasol, or head straight in for a dip in the Mediterranean Sea. Try water-skiing, windsurfing or loads of other water sports at Coral Bay. Go on boats trips along the coast, or sign up for scuba-courses, which will allow you to explore some of the underwater sites and marine life, as well as the stunning Amphorae Caves. Back on dry land again, you can go on day trips out of the city to either explore other cities in Cyprus, experience the rugged inland landscape of the Troodos Mountains or go on a wine tour to sample some delightful Cypriot grapes. Regardless of what you’re seeking, or if you are looking for a special blend of everything, Paphos is sure to have it covered, and after a long day of exploring, a local restaurant will be beckoning you in to try some of the local food. Souvlaki and freshly-caught seafood will be served in abundant portions, and if you’re not entirely sure what to order, then a large helping of meze is a great introduction of what the island has to offer.
