The town of Paphos is the best-known resort on Cyprus’ west coast. A traditional harbour town, it’s got a handful of golden beaches, a pretty marina and a long list of historical sights, including the Tombs of the Kings. Elsewhere in the region is Limassol, which has a 7-mile stretch of beach, and Coral Bay, where you’ll find a large horseshoe-shaped cove with Blue Flag credentials. If you’re after somewhere away from it all, the quiet seaside villages of Polis, Amathus Bay and Latchi give you an authentic slice of island life.
If you’re planning a holiday where you can easily combine sleepy fishing towns with lively clubs and bars, Cyprus is a winning destination.
