Paphos

Ein paar Wörter

Famous for its spellbinding sunsets and rich cultural heritage, Paphos is perhaps Cyprus’s most diverse and enchanting district, especially when it comes to natural beauty, great food and history. Separated from the rest of the island by the Troodos massif, the region of Paphos has been relatively isolated and slow to develop, and only started to catch up with the rest of the island in the late 20th century. As a result, its hills and plains are dotted with villages that possess a distinct character, while farming and traditional crafts are still very much alive here. The small town of Paphos is the district’s capital and home to approximately 35,000 residents—but its small size belies its once glorious past as the island’s capital and its historical significance to Cyprus as a whole.

In Paphos, a joy for life shines through every social and cultural event, from the frequent traditional food festivals and music fiestas to the local concerts, opera productions and theatres. The town’s cultural scene has received a significant boost in recent years, since it was designated as Cultural Capital of Europe in 2017, together with the city of Aarhus. As a result, many cultural venues have been renovated, streets and buildings have been touched up, some areas have been pedestrianised and an international audience has arrived to attend a diverse programme of performances and other art events. The city’s culinary scene is of course as vibrant as ever, and Paphos is the perfect place to taste authentic local cheeses, wine and other traditional delicacies; being an internationally known resort town, Paphos can also offer fine dining and sophisticated cooking, to be enjoyed at the many 5-star hotels and restaurants scattered around the region.

What makes Paphos really stand out from other Cypriot districts is its diverse and abundant natural beauty. As you move around Paphos, the landscape changes from one moment to the next, shifting from staggering coastal cliffs to rolling hillsides covered with vineyards, and from dense centenarian pine forests to brilliant bays with crystal-clear waters and beaches of shiny pebble. Adventure-lovers will be spoilt for choice here, as the district is a popular destination for hikers, mountain-bikers, road-trippers and scuba-divers, especially in the nature reserve of the Akamas peninsula. Meanwhile, the nearby town of Polis Chrysochous and its surrounding villages each have a different tale to tell, and are ideal for daily excursions or even staying overnight at the many small guesthouses. Much like its brilliant Roman mosaics and multicoloured hills and beaches, Paphos is a kaleidoscope of experience that has something for everyone, a region waiting to be explored all year round.
Due to its relative isolation from the rest of the island during Ottoman and British rule, Paphos has developed its own customs and recipes. Here you’ll find different types of cheese, usually made with goat and sheep milk, as well as all sorts of treats both sweet and savoury. Food is a ritual in Paphos, and there are tavernas and small restaurants in most villages offering authentic tastes and honest hospitality. If you eat meat, try the delicious kleftiko, which is the flesh of a mature goat cooked overnight in traditional wood-burning ovens. Because of the time it requires to be prepared, kleftiko is usually available only on Sundays. Another authentic local treat is tsamarella, which is salty, cured goat meat, and which is served as a side with drinks, or used in sandwiches.

Unique to Paphos is also a special kind of chewing gum made of mastic, called pissa pafitiki, and the world-famous delights from the village of Yeroskipou. During Easter, local bakeries and households will be making flaounes, which are savoury cheese pies with raisins, or paskies, which are the same but with cheese and meat. A very productive and old wine region, Paphos has suitable terrains and climate to produce fine wine and other spirits. Visit one of the many wineries up in the hills to taste local wines together with snacks and even take a bottle or two for back home. The most famous wine areas are near Stroumbi village, and on Vouni Panagias mountain. In September-October, during grape-harvesting season, you can visit local wine festivals to try palouze, which is a warm cream made of grape juice and flour, and shoushoukko, a sweet treat made of grape juice and almonds.

  • The Paphos Municipal Market, in downtown Paphos. This is the largest grocery market in town, and the place where locals come daily to buy fresh produce as it arrives directly from the countryside. A must-visit if you want to mingle with locals, taste seasonal fruit and vegetables, and buy some for your stay.
  • The Statos-Agios Fotios Agricultural Festival, taking place every September at this village. Visitors can see how traditional dishes are made, and try them on the spot together with drinks and music.

  • A shot of zivania, the signature drink of Cyprus. Zivania is a strong local spirit made of grape stems and the skin of the fruit, and is not for the faint-hearted or light-headed!

Paphos offers a wide variety of action-packed activities for those who are after some excitement and adventure, whether on land or at sea.

The various mountain trails and routes of Paphos are dotted with points of historical interest and can guarantee an energetic hike whilst offering insight into local history. The most famous and longest hiking trail in the district is the one known as Venetian Bridges, which takes you through the shady Paphos Forest, along the ancient trading route that connected the mountain villages of Paphos with those of Lemesos (Limassol). The hike is 16km long, and takes about six hours to complete, but it rewards hikers with its natural beauty, gurgling streams and the experience of crossing the three still-standing bridges just as medieval merchants used to do centuries ago.

The calm Mediterranean Sea offers itself for a variety of sports and activities, and most organised beaches in Paphos and Latchi provide watersports equipment and other activities. On the beaches of Paphos town and Coral Bay one can rent jet skis to ride the waves, or do other exciting speedboat activities such as waterskiing and paragliding. At some Paphos beaches one can also try flyboarding, a new watersport that allows you to fly in and out of the water. Several sailing clubs offer classes and rental boats for sailing around Paphos, and some beaches are also suitable for windsurfing and kite-surfing. For a day-long or overnight excursion at sea, charter a sailing boat or yacht with a qualified skipper and explore the Akamas peninsula at your leisure.

The most picturesque are: the one around the artificial lake of Kanaviou dam, and the one from Kelefos to Milikouri that cuts right through the dense Paphos Forest.
Paphos is a place of great historical significance, both to Cyprus and the wider region. The first signs of settlements in the region date back to Neolithic times, or roughly 12,000 years ago, when the area was an important commercial centre due to its proximity to the Aegean islands and the west. In Classical antiquity there were two Paphos towns: the Old Paphos, or Palaipaphos, to the south, where the village of Kouklia is today, and the New Paphos, which is the site of the present-day town. Old Paphos was a renowned centre for the cult of Aphrodite, and its temple was famous throughout the ancient world as a venerated site of pilgrimage. In Roman times, Paphos was a wealthy and prospering city of commerce and culture, as the remains of luxurious villas and public buildings reveal in the Paphos Archaeological Park, as well as the intricate tombs carved in rock at the site known as Tombs of the Kings. Due to their historical and archaeological importance and value, both archaeological sites at New Paphos and Old Paphos are listed as Unesco World Heritage sites since 1980.

Much like the rest of Cyprus, Paphos changed a lot of rulers over its many centuries of history, from Byzantine to western Crusaders, and from the Ottomans to the British. Byzantine monuments in the town are the church of Agia Kyriaki, which was built in the 13th century, and the little church of Agia Paraskevi in Geroskipou, with its unusual design of five domes. Also dating from the Byzantine era is the city’s medieval castle, which is built right on the harbour, and the remains of the 40 Columns fort, which is now part of the Paphos Archaeological Park. The turbulent and varied history of Paphos and its people can be discovered at the several local museums, including the Archaeological Museum, the Byzantine Museum and the Ethnographical Museum. Paphos is also home to impressive samples of colonial-era architecture, as seen in the ornate school buildings and mansions built around the Town Hall on Griva Digeni Street.

  • The four Roman mansions at Paphos Archaeological Park. These once luxurious homes of merchants and noblemen boast some of the most impressive and well-preserved mosaic floors in the Mediterranean.
  • The Tombs of the Kings, the ancient necropolis north of Paphos. The tombs are cut into a large rock by the sea, and are unique samples of architecture and ancient burial rituals.
  • The ancient sanctuary of Geronisos, or Holy Island. The tiny islet used to be inhabited in prehistory, and recent excavations have unearthed a temple that was probably dedicated to Apollo. The islet is close to the shore by Agios Georgios, near Peyia, but is not an organised archaeological site.
  • The basket-weaving museum at Inia, a small village up in the hills of Akamas. Traditional basket-weaving is a time-honoured craft that is gradually fading away, so a dedicated museum has been built to preserve it. Baskets, bags and all sorts of objects are made here by experienced weavers, who will show you the techniques and materials of their craft.
  • The Textile Museum at Droushia, the largest village on the Akamas peninsula. This small museum has a traditional loom where women used to weave their clothes and fabrics, as well as samples of traditional costume and decorated handiwork.
  • The village of Fyti, with its traditional architecture and colourful weaving known as fythkiotika. This unique type of weaving includes geometrical patterns and bright colours on a white background using cotton or silk, and is now part of Unesco’s Intangible Heritage lists. A visit to the small museum and workshop will show you the tools and techniques of making fythkiotika, and a walk around the quiet alleys is also recommended.
  • The monastery of Chrysorogiatissa on the mountain of Vouni Panagias. This 12th-century monastery still retains its late-Byzantine architecture and traditional character. No monks live there now, but it’s open to visitors and also has a small shop. A local icon-painter maintains a workshop inside, where you can see her at work and find out more about Byzantine painting.
  • The impressive fort-like monastery of Agia Moni, near the village of Panagia. This is also not inhabited by monks, but its medieval architecture has been beautifully restored during recent works.
  • The monastery of Agios Neofytos near the town of Paphos. This is a monastery founded by the saint himself in the 12th century, and is one of the most important landmarks in the region. Discover its unique architecture, the monks’ cells carved on the cliff and the church’s impressive frescoes.
  • The Archaeological Museum of Marion - Arsinoe. This small but concise district museum in Polis exhibits findings from the once prosperous Hellenistic and Phoenician towns unearthed nearby.
  • The August festivals, taking place in all the villages of Cyprus. A holiday as important as Christmas and Easter, the 15th of August is an annual gathering for small communities and a chance for immigrants to return home and visit their families. Every village has its own fiesta in August, so pick your favourite and join in: expect live music, traditional food served on the street, and wine for everyone.
  • Kykkos Monastery, hidden in the very heart of Paphos Forest. This prosperous monastery is also a bishop’s seat, and attracts visitors from far and wide, both for its stunning natural setting but also for its historical significance and collection of Byzantine artefacts. The monastery lies at the farthest end of Paphos Forest, and it takes approximately a two-hour drive to get there. Kykkos is also reachable via helicopter.
A treasure trove of natural beauties awaits visitors to Paphos, as the district boasts the most diverse and picturesque landscapes on the island. To the south, high coastal cliffs of white rock dominate the landscape and are the perfect spot for a sunset picture on the way to Petra tou Romiou, a sea rock formation where according to tradition Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was born. A hiking trail of low difficulty starts from here and takes visitors along the National Forest area on the nearby hills, whilst offering unique views of the dramatic coast below.

To the northernmost tip of the district lies the Akamas Natural Reserve on the peninsula of the same name, where rare and endemic plants grow, for example a kind of centenarian juniper called aoratos. On the west coast of Akamas, the bay of Lara is blessed with velvety golden sand, and is a favourite spot for Mediterranean sea turtles to lay their eggs. Swimming is allowed there, but take care not to disturb the turtle nests, and plunging sharp objects (like parasols) into the sand is prohibited as this might destroy buried eggs. There are asphalt roads going through Akamas, but if you seek to discover the hidden beauties of the area, a 4X4 car might be a better option; if you don’t want to drive, you can also join one of the organised local “Safari” tours with their heavy-duty Jeeps.

The northeast region of Paphos district is a mountainous area covered with dense forest known as the Paphos Forest. This is a wonderful ancient forest of Mediterranean pine and bushes, a completely unspoiled area full of impressive rock formations of great geological interest, shady valleys and glens, as well as endemic flora and fauna. The area is a great escape from the coastal heat into the cooler mountain air—but its long, winding roads mean that it takes time to drive from one point of interest to the other, so schedule a whole day for your excursion, or break it down into several visits. Right in the heart of the forest lies Cedar Valley, which takes its name from the unusually large number of cedars growing there. The cedar growth in this valley is even denser than the famed cedar forests of Lebanon, and makes for a very unusual sight. An easy hike to the nearby peak of Tripylos offers majestic views over the mountains, all the way to Troodos and beyond.
 
More to check out:
  • The Blue Lagoon beach, on the tip of the Akamas peninsula. This is the westernmost point of Cyprus, famous for the pristine turquoise of its waters, and is only accessible via boat. Regular boat trips to Blue Lagoon, Fontana Amorosa and other coastal landmarks of Akamas depart from Latchi harbour. Optionally, you can charter a RIB or other vessel from the harbour for a private tour.
  • Aphrodite’s Baths, a natural grotto with a pool where locals believed the goddess of love used to bathe with her nymphs. The site is easily accessible by car and lies a few kilometres west of Latchi. From here a hiking trail of high difficulty begins, which runs around the mountaintop and offers spectacular views of Akamas’ photogenic western coast.
  • Smiyies Picnic Site, right in the heart of Akamas Natural Reserve and next to Neo Chorio village. This is an organised public site for picnics and barbecues, and also the starting point of two hiking trails of medium difficulty. Nearby landmarks include the ruins of an old monastery known as the Tower of Rigena, and the now-abandoned magnesium mines. The trails here can be combined with those going to Aphrodite’s Baths for a longer hike.
  • The Avakas Gorge, near the village of Peyia. This is a site of rare natural beauty, with impressive rock formations, a running stream and sightings of the endemic plant Centaurea akamantis. The trail is of medium difficulty, and the hike lasts about one hour.
  • Stavros tis Psokas, an outpost of the National Fire Brigade inside the Paphos Forest. Here you can take a break for refreshments while exploring Paphos Forest, and also see the mouflon, a species of mountain sheep found only on Cyprus, from up close. Avoid Sundays and national holidays, as it’s a popular barbecue site for locals.
  • Vouni Panagias, a mountain next to Paphos forest that offers impressive views over the valley of Kannaviou, the forest, and all the way to Akamas bay. A hiking trail of increased difficulty begins from Panagia village and takes visitors through local vineyards and a Natura natural reserve. A secondary trail leads all the way up to the mountaintop, where there’s a fire brigade watchtower.
  • Kanaviou Dam, a recently completed reservoir that is full of water all year round, creating an artificial lake that winds gleaming into the deep valley. A mountain-biking trail of increased difficulty runs around the lake, but the dirt road along the water is also perfect for a walk at sunset, when the toads and crickets are waking up. In summer, don’t forget your mosquito repellent.
  • A visit to Episkopi Paphos Environmental Information Centre, near the village of Episkopi. Here you can find out more about local plants and animals, the climate and geology of Cyprus, and much more.
  • Swimming and sunbathing at Coral Bay, a well-protected bay surrounded by rocky cliffs. This is an organised beach with cafés and other amenities.
As a resort town that knows how to treat its guests in the best way possible, Paphos has top-quality bars, restaurants and clubs that can cater for any taste and mood. The place to see and be seen is the more touristy downtown avenue by the coast, where one will find several restaurants, cafés and hotels with sumptuous garden bars and pool bars. Live music and concerts are also frequent, especially during the summer months when foreign and local artists tour Cyprus; Paphos also attracts international DJs to its dance clubs, for partying until the wee hours. The small coastal village of Latchi is also a popular destination for younger people, as it has a few bars and restaurants right on the beach. For a more exclusive night out in Latchi, visit Anassa resort and enjoy sophisticated drinks and fine cuisine on the terrace or in the gardens. The hotel often hosts art exhibitions as well.

Cultural events like concerts and theatre performances in Paphos take place at the local Markideio Theatre or the recently renovated Technopolis. In summer, some events take place at the ancient Odeon inside the Paphos Archaeological Park, offering magical experiences under the starry sky, like those enjoyed by the ancients some 2,000 years ago. To find where the locals hang out, head uphill into the old town to discover small bars and restaurants, or visit Muse, a restaurant that is a staple for locals, built on a cliff top overlooking the entire town and with the best sunset views on the island.
More to check out:
  • The annual ‘Pafos Aphrodite Festival’, which takes place in front of the Medieval Castle by the harbour. The festival involves the open-air staging of an opera, with the participation of international musicians and artists.
  • The promenade by the harbour. This is a very popular spot for locals and visitors alike, with fish restaurants, cafés and bars looking out onto the picturesque harbour and the illuminated castle at night.
  • Shopping at one of the big malls. The fully air-conditioned malls are also a good place to hang out when you want to avoid the scorching midday heat during summer months. Other popular shopping spots are Nikodimou Milona Street and Apostolou Pavlou Avenue, where you’ll find most well-known brands.

Paphos is the fourth largest town in Cyprus, and is situated on the island’s west coast. It lies 68km from Lemesos, 134km from Larnaka, 152km from Lefkosia and 179km from Agia Napa. The district of Paphos is dotted with many villages, most of which retain their traditional character. Important villages are Peyia, Droushia, Panagia, Tsada and Kouklia. To the north of the district there’s another small town, Polis Chrysochous, with a population of around 4,000 people. Paphos has breathtaking natural landscapes and several protected nature reserves, the most famous of which are Akamas peninsula and Paphos Forest.

Paphos shares the pleasant and dry climate of the rest of Cyprus, with no rain during the summer and mild winters. This makes Paphos a perfect destination all year round, although during midsummer the temperature can rise over 40 degrees Celsius. Due to its west-facing coasts, Paphos also has a humid climate, which enables the cultivation of bananas and avocados. Spring is definitely the best season to visit the area, as the temperature is moderate and the landscape is green and full of flowers. The weather is mild and the sea warm enough for swimming even in the first half of autumn.

 

Paphos is a popular tourist resort that rewards its visitors with its high quality of services and the hospitality of its people. This is why many visitors keep coming back year after year, and hotel staff-members know many of their clients by name. In Paphos one will find hotels for any budget, from luxurious resorts and all-inclusives to smaller guesthouses with a more personal character. Private villas are also available for those who seek more privacy and want to keep their distance from the bustling town centre.

Kato Paphos: This is the coastal part of Paphos, with its tourist area, wide avenues and beach hotels. The best place to stay if you want to be close to the beach and enjoy evening strolls by the harbour at night.

Ktima: This is the inland part of Paphos, also known as the old town, built on the surrounding hills. It has more of an urban vibe, and a more authentic and relaxed ambience. Small cafés and shops can be found here, and is a better option for those who don’t want to follow the tourist path.

Polis Chrysochous and Latchi: The small town of Polis Chrysochous is about 40km north of Paphos, and is a much quieter alternative to the cosmopolitan district capital. Latchi used to be a fishing village, but its harbour is now the area’s only marina. This is the closest you can stay to Akamas nature reserve, which is a mere 10km west of Polis.

Countryside & Agrotourism: The district of Paphos is so rich in natural and cultural points of interest that you might wish to spend your entire stay up in the mountains. Explore quaint little villages and walk along vineyards and fragrant orchards at your leisure. Much as in the town, the countryside can offer accommodation options for any budget, from rooms-to-let and b&bs to five-star resorts that offer top-tier amenities surrounded by unspoilt nature.

By air: Paphos International Airport connects to 46 airports in Europe and the Middle East. The airport is conveniently situated a mere 20 minutes south of Paphos town. Larnaka International Airport is approximately a two-hour drive to the east, but it offers more international flights.

By sea: Paphos has two small harbours where private sailing boats and yachts can dock: in Paphos and at Latchi. The harbour at Latchi is more modern and also offers marina services.

If you are planning to rent a car or a motorbike and you are not British or Japanese, you must be very careful as all over Cyprus cars drive on the LEFT side of the road. The road network all around Paphos is in excellent condition when it comes to reaching villages, towns and important monuments. Nature reserves, forests and other undeveloped areas have dirt roads which might not be suitable for city cars, so consider renting a 4X4 car or off-road motorcycle. Bicycles, scooters and buggies might be a practical option for reaching nearby beaches and for sightseeing, and a network of buses serves Polis, all the important villages and the airport. Private helicopters can be chartered from Paphos Airport for trips to Akamas, Polis, Kykkos and other distant areas.
