Coral Bay sits on the un-spoilt wilderness of the rugged Paphos Coast in Cyprus. Having been developed later than much of the island, Coral Bay and Paphos were built as holiday destinations without destroying the original charm and allure of the original settlements. Therefore villas in Coral Bay are some of the best and most luxury holiday accommodation on the island. Coral Bay is a family friendly resort, and there is a large amount to entertain people of all ages.
Coral Bay sits on a 600m fine white sand beach in stunning scenery. The crystal calm seas in the bay are used whole-heartedly for banana boating, jet skiing, pedalos, windsurfing and water skiing. A walk around the coast will uncover some of the best and most secluded beaches in Cyprus, but from these small coves refreshments and services become very scarce.
The most celebrated activity in Coral Bay is the magnificent scuba diving. There are lessons and excursions available for beginners, and a wealth of sites for the more experienced including the underwater geological wilderness of Maninji Island and the Wreck of the Zenobia, the fourth largest wreck dive in the world.
Taking a Coral Bay holiday villa for those who like to sample foreign food is going to allow you to enjoy the fine restaurants and cafes in the area, as well as try cooking some of the local delicacies yourself. Fresh fish, fruit and wines can be bought daily from the markets of Coral Bay, Paphos and Kato Paphos.
Coral Bay is a peaceful village, and if you are looking for vibrant nightlife from a Coral Bay rental villa, Paphos town is only a short taxi journey away, although there is an excellent selection of cocktail bars in Coral Bay itself.
The picturesque hillside village of Peyia is a great place to spend at least an afternoon, sitting in a traditional taverna, watching the world go by.
Kato-Paphos is a veritable gold mine of archeological discoveries. The history of the island can be swiftly understood with a trip to Kato, and is well worth visiting if you would like to understand more about Cyprus than is in your guide book.
Coral Bay has a blissful climate. Summer temperatures soar to around 40°C in the hottest months of July and August, and remain pleasant during the winter, with average temperatures in the coldest month, January, at lows of around 10°C. There is little or no rain from June to September.
