Paphos

With year round sunshine, bath temperature seawater, sandy beaches and a relaxed ambience it is no surprise that the Cypriot resort of Paphos is booming. Throw in cooling sea breezes, some of the finest Greek relics and Roman mosaics anywhere in the world, relaxing spas, a lively nightlife scene, luxury hotels and decent restaurants and Paphos' myriad charms are hard to resist. If that isn't enough, many of Cyprus' stunning natural attractions, including Paphos Forest, the Akamas Peninsula and the Troodos Mountains, are close to the resort. When it comes to holidays, Paphos, with its sandy beaches, first-class resort facilities and UNESCO World Heritage listed attractions, comes up trumps at any time of year. 

Top 3 Things to do in Paphos.
 
Turkish Fort 
Above the harbor stands a Turkish fort (1592) built on the site of an earlier medieval castle.
This is a Byzantine fort built to protect the harbor. Rebuilt by the Lusignans, it was dismantled by the Venetians and rebuilt by the Ottomans.
There are also ruins of another fort on the breakwater, but these consist only of two lumps of rock.
  
Petra tou Romaiou
Six mi/nine km from Kouklia, we come to the Petra tou Romaiou, the legendary spot where Aphrodite is said to have emerged from the waves ("Odyssey", Vlll, 362).
The Greek name of the rock "Petra tou Romiou" or "Rock of the Greek" is associated with the legendary Byzantian frontier-guard, Digenis Akritas. It is said he kept Arab pirates at bay by throwing rocks at them from the hillside above.
There are two large rocks in the sea, set against the white cliffs above and the turquoise of the Mediterranean below.
The beach is shingly but the setting is spectacular.
The scene has been a source of inspiration for many poets and painters, the most famous result being Boticelli's Birth of Venus.
 
Paphos District Archaelogical Museum
Paphos District Archeological Museum is expanding as the finds from continuing excavations are added to the collection.
It houses an attractive collection of Cypriot antiquities from the Neolithic Age to A.D. 1700.
