Villa Coral Retreat is in a truly enviable position. It has the advantage of being within easy walking distance of the superb amenities of Coral Bay. Coral Bay is described as being the 'Jewel in Paphos' crown', this small holiday resort is found on the outskirts of its busier neighbour, Paphos. It has a lovely friendly, comfortable, safe feeling and attracts guests back year after year.
There is a great selection for the evenings, chic restaurants mingle with traditional tavernas, some offer family evening entertainment, such as Greek dancing (mainly in high season) or you can just enjoy quiet intimate dining and appreciate one of the local wines. This combination, along with the beautiful beaches makes Coral Bay the perfect location for a holiday in Cyprus.
An excellent bus service is accessed 2 minutes away from the villa (a flat walk) and runs regularly to Paphos historic old town and market and the lovely Paphos harbour with medieval fort. The fare is about 1 Euro each way and a day ticket can be purchased and you can hop on and off as you wish. Alternatively there are many options to join one of the wonderful organised guided trips.
For our younger guests, enjoy safe swimming in the local beaches, a ten minute walk away, here in the crescent shaped, shallow water of Coral Bay, many water sports are available, pedaloes, diving, paragliding etc. or consider a visit to the near by zoo, the water park at Paphos or the Go-Karting, in Paphos or Coral Bay, the list goes on.
Visit Lara Bay, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, here, within in the Akamas nature reserve is where you will find the hatchery of the loggerhead turtles.
Marvel at the amazingly well preserved Tombs of the Kings and the mosaics in Paphos.
Further a field take a visit to the wonderful Troodos mountains (skiing in winter), stopping off in one of the small villages, such as Omodos along the way, immerse yourself in the feeling of village life and enjoy a long leisurely lunch.
Kourion is another wonder of Cyprus and in my opinion, well worth a visit.
Closer to home, ladies pamper yourself at the 5* Coral Beach spa resort or the Thalassa boutique hotel while the gentlemen visit one of the local golf courses.
A car is not needed to visit many of these wonderful places but, although not essential car hire makes exploring a must.
