Coral Bay in Paphos

Coral Bay Beach is a family-friendly beach, well-organized, with comfy sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as lifeguards on duty during the swimming season.

Coral Bay Beach Favorite Pastimes

In Paphos, you are never more than ten minutes away from the beach, and when they are as beautiful as Coral Bay, you cannot resist the pull of the sea. The Coral Bay Beach is a Blue Flag destination located about six kilometers north of Paphos city. It has soft white sands and is safe for family outings.

The Coral Bay Beach is located in a large horseshoe-shaped cove surrounded by limestone headlands covered in seaweed-toned saplings and shrubs. Its safe swimming conditions make it an ideal place to splash around in the water. Other favorite pastimes here include scuba diving (look for Coral Bay Divers), parascending, and water skiing. Walks and hikes are usual activities too. Another reason to go to spend a day at Coral Bay is the Maa-Paleokastro settlement at the northern end of the beach. This is where the first Greeks settled on the island after the fall of the Mycenean Kingdom (around 1200 BC). There’s a little museum here, showing you how Cyprus was colonized by the Mycenean Greeks. Maa-Paleokastro is essential as the place where Hellenism originated on the island. Although entrance to the museum is not free, it is still worth to pay the symbolic 2,50 € to learn more about the history of Cyprus. Since attraction is not heavily advertised, it will be less frequented by tourists than the main Paphos landmarks.

When hunger strikes, you can grab a bite at one of the local taverns, which offer simple, hearty meals at reasonable prices. There are also bars for those craving for beer and other libations.
