Welcome to Paphos
A vacation favorite, Paphos, for most people, is all about sun, sand, and sea, but despite its fame as a seaside resort, this town has a bundle of great historical attractions that make a good diversion for days when you want to do more than flop on the beach. Paphos is divided into two parts: Kato Paphos, down by the harbor, is where the archaeological sites are, and Ktima is where you’ll find the museums. During the height of summer, town can be clogged with visitors. This is the time to head out and explore the further sights of Cyprus’ western coast. The Akamas Peninsula is home to incredibly diverse flora and fauna and one of the island’s best hiking spots, while the rugged archaeological sites of North Cyprus’ west coast are easily within day-trip distance.
