Aphrodite herself is said to have risen from the seas along the shores of Paphos. You can see why she picked the spot – turquoise waters lap against golden sands, with a backdrop of dazzling limestone cliffs. It really is a beautiful place to explore at, so stay a while.
Cyprus’ west coast comes with Blue Flag beaches and buckets of historic charm. Plus you’ll catch some of the best sunsets in the Med. Pay your respects at the Tombs of the Kings, hop on a boat ride to the glimmering Aphrodite’s Rock or take on the waterpark rides and snaking slides.
