paphos cyprus

In the azure sea just off the coast of Paphos, a majestic rock marks the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite.

Since Hellenic times, the faithful of all creeds have flocked to worship at this beautiful bay, establishing a fine tradition of mosaic-making. Today, Paphos's open air museum of Byzantine churches and Roman ruins is interspersed with al fresco restaurants and café bars.  Frankly, there's not much to recommend Paphos from a 'retail' perspective, but it's worth a look if you would like to discover more about its mythical and cultural history.

Near to Paphos, we are recommending that you consider a range of privately owned villas and apartments set within the exclusive and beautiful Aphrodite Hills Resort or stay at the luxurious all-suites Columbia Beach Resort.  Both have lots of activities on offer to keep everyone of all ages entertained.  Perfect for both adults and families.  Almyra is also great for families.

For adults seeking to avoid the family holiday scene, we recommend the tranquil, luxurious, adults only (minimum age 16) Asimina Suites

Weather and seasons

Summer - If you're a sun worshipper then you won't be disappointed by the weather in Cyprus during the summer months. June to August there's around 13 hours of 32C sunshine, but in late July and early August temperatures can reach as high as 43C.

The high temperatures make the beaches perfect for sunbathing, and the sea is warm enough for all day swimming and watersports. In September and October the temperatures are still around the 30C mark and there's around 9 hours of sunshine per day.

Further inland the summer temperatures will be even higher and have been known to hit around 48C.

Winter - Cyprus is known as the island of sun and it's no different in the winter. December to February enjoys temperatures of around 18C and you will still have around 5 hours of sunshine per day. An April Easter break will see you topping up a tan with 8 hours of sunshine per day and temperatures hitting 24C.
