Paphos has been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Once considered as the birthplace of the Greek goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite, the remains of her temple in nearby Kouklia are just one of many world-class archaeological sites you’ll find dotted in and around the town. However, visitors don’t just come here for the history, or the romance! Its location on the rockier south west coast of Cyprus means you’ll find secluded coves for swimming, and fragrant pine forests all within easy reach. And there’s plenty of fun for all the family at the Aphrodite Waterpark, the biggest waterpark on the island. Paphos holidays have something for everyone.
