It has everything you need for an amazing stay, including a fully equipped kitchen and a washing machine. It’s one of my top picks.
Best Areas to Stay in Paphos
Here’s a breakdown of the best areas and neighborhoods to stay in for tourists.
Kato Paphos means “Lower Paphos”. It’s away from the rest of the city which is a little further inland, away from the Sea.
It’s one of the main tourist destinations in Paphos, and you’ll find lots of high-end hotels, beach bars, and restaurants here.
There are some fantastic beaches in Kato Paphos, and it’s within walking distance from Paphos Harbor, and a short drive to Paphos Water park – two of my favorite things to do in Paphos.
Given its proximity to the sea, and because it’s more built up, there are fewer villas in this area, but you will find some lovely townhouses and apartments. These are fabulous options if you like to have everything on your doorstep while you’re vacationing.
If you’re staying in Kato Paphos, the townhouse by the sea would be my personal choice.
If you’re in Kato Paphos and fancy something a little different, then try the exceptional Indian street food at Namaste Paphos. They have a very contemporary menu with lots of specialty dishes. The Namaste chicken and the South Indian fish curry are both delicious.
Coral Bay is another very touristy part of Paphos. It’s very quiet in the winter, and in the summer it’s one of the liveliest places in Paphos.
Coral Bay Avenue, is the main road in the area and is lined with restaurants, bars, and shops. There are some fantastic places to eat along the Avenue (I recommend Seriani Restaurant) and at the end, you’ll find the blue flag beach, Coral Bay Beach.
It’s a fantastic place for families as there is a lot to do here, the beach is sandy and the water shallow. If you’re staying in Coral Bay, I recommend the luxury villa in the heart of the area.
Peyia is set in the hills just above Coral Bay. It’s a little further out and so it’s very relaxing and a little calmer than Coral Bay.
It’s a village which has been developed by ex-pats but has still retained its traditional charm, so you’ll find a nice blend of old and new here. One night you can eat at a traditional tavern (try Peyia Tavern for amazing meze) and the next in a more modern European-style restaurant.
As it’s a little further out, there’s more space. More space means beautiful, spacious homes and villas in Paphos. If you’re intending on staying in Peyia during your vacation, I recommend the classic Greek-look villa.
Chloraka is located between Coral Bay and Paphos/Kato Paphos. Coral Bay is around 7 km away and Paphos harbor is around 5 km; ideally, you’d need a car to explore the surrounding areas.
Whilst in Chloraka, I would definitely recommend that you check out the wonderful Kasparis Tavern. This traditional, family-run, Cypriot tavern serves excellent seafood and local delicacies. If you can’t decide, go for the huge fish meze and try it all!
However, the benefit of staying in Chloraka is that it’s a little quieter than the surrounding resort areas, while still being close enough to pop in and enjoy the nightlife or restaurants.
One of my favorite villas in Paphos is this one in Chloraka.
I’ve put Tala on the list because you can find some spectacular villas in the area with the most amazing views.
If you’re looking for a relaxing vacation, and aren’t fussed about spending too much time in the bustling city center, then you may wish to consider Tala. It’s around 8 km from Paphos town center, but the landscape is magical. Full of carob, olive, almost and citrus trees.
There are some large villas in the village which are great for big groups. You’ll just need a car if you stay in this area. If you’re interested in Tala, go and stay at Barbara’s, it’s wonderful.
