Welcome to Paphos

If Cyprus is the Island of Love, Paphos is the capital. The goddess of love was born here and the remains of her temple, one of the most popular in the region in ancient times, still overlook the Mediterranean from a village hillside.


Love is definitely in the air but Paphos also boasts rich archaeological, natural, culinary and cultural delights which make it a destination that people find themselves returning to again and again. In one day you can pack in a morning swim, boutique shopping, museum-hopping and para-sailing and in the evening be back at the beach side sipping a cocktail.


In only ten years Paphos has transformed from a sleepy fishing harbour into one of the most multi-cultural areas in Cyprus – a fact confirmed by the most recent census and reflected in the international array of cuisine on offer.
This multi-cultural character is set to expand further with Paphos about to receive the prestigious title of 2017 Culture Capital of Europe.
But don’t forget the local motto “Siga, siga” when you taking in all that Paphos has to offer. It means “take it easy” and we think this is the perfect way to approach a Paphos break at Paradise Cove.
By all means have a plan, but don’t be surprised if it gives way to something else equally magical.
