Tours & Excursions
Paphos (Pafos) lies on the southwest coast of the island and is sheltered from the north by the Troodos mountains. It has a temperate climate, one of the healthiest in the whole Mediterranean.
In the Paphos region, you can bask in sunshine all year round and feel the warmth of a welcoming people with a reputation for hospitality. Splash about in the sparkling warm waters of the Mediterranean in the summer; marvel at the splendors of nature as the fields are carpeted in wildflowers in the spring; explore ancient sites in perfect temperatures in the autumn; and in the mild winter keep fit with a round or two of golf or an invigorating game of tennis.
Paphos (Pafos) is a combination of many things: a cosmopolitan holiday resort with spectacular countryside nearby, and many fascinating historical sites. The region offers the possibility of enjoying both the sea and the mountains, as well as giving a taste of the island’s cultural heritage with its many archaeological sites.
You can feel the romance in the air as you walk where Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty, once roamed. Swim in the sea by the rocks known as Petra touRomiou, where she is believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or visit the grotto near Polis where she supposedly bathed. Undoubtedly these are just some of the reasons that make Paphos such a favourite with couples getting married or honeymooning.
