A Taste Of Cyprus
Looking for a spot of winter sun or a steaming summer retreat? Make your way to a sublime resort and take holidays in Paphos in Cyprus where you'll find a vibrant, bustling atmosphere along with year round temperatures.
For sun dwelled days lazed on beautiful hot sands, spend a day at the infamous coral bay. This stunning bay welcomes guests from far afield as its soft hot sands meet the cooling, clear waters. If your hang-over hasn't got the better of you, grab your snorkel and check out the beautiful marine life or head to the watersports centre and try your hand at jet skiing, banana boating or for the brave and the bold, jump on a ringo and head for the waves!
For night time shenanigan's filled with fun, head to the stunning Paphos town, where sublime restaurants line the front meeting quiet cafe's as they cross paths. However don't be deceived, as this tame exterior is a mere disguise for what lies in the wake. Follow the crowds and through the streets until you reach the fun-loving, lively bar street. Lined with bars and laughs galore, this strip is lively without being tacky. The karaoke bar will leave you wanting more, with fun and lively bar staff serving drinks all night long. At the end of the street you'll see a huge open bar with dancers and mc's, bubbles bar is probably the most popular on the street and sets the tone for the evening, serving up icy lemon shots and deadly slammers.
After a night in the town, stagger back to your apartment where you can wake up from a good nights sleep to more sunny skies and blistering temperatures. Ensure you apply plenty of sun screen, as these rays are intense and will burn you without a shadow of a doubt. To indulge in some local architecture, head through town to the history soaked site of the tomb of the kings. Dating back to 300BC, you'll discover impressive tombs carved out of rock, Doric pillars and frescoed walls. Don't forget your camera as there are many great picture opportunities to be had down here.
So, for an amazing holiday in a beautiful location, I can't recommend holidays in Paphos enough. No matter what you're looking for, be it beach based stays with shopping in mind, sightseeing trips with friends and family or fun-filled nights and sleepy days, there's something for everyone here, and you don't have to look far to find it!
