Airbnb Paphos: Top Places To Stay
Best Area To Stay In Paphos
Paphos itself is home to some really quaint neighbourhoods, each bringing something different and unique to the banquet – some amazingly untouched and others more suited to the tourist scene. Kato Paphos, by the sea, is the place to stay if you want to be really central and close to the beach.
Agios Georgios is a tiny fishing harbour, it’s a simply wonderful spot to relax and unwind or watch the fishermen unloading in the early mornings. There is a bird sanctuary just a short drive away and there are several Greek restaurants nearby and Coral Bay is close as well.
Deciding where to stay on your next trip can be stressful – but in fact, it’s actually half the fun. So sit back and scroll through this post for some ideas and inspiration to make the most of your time in Paphos.
This is the largest area within Paphos, making it a hotspot for tourists. This exquisite part of Paphos town is built around the harbour, literally right by the sea. It has everything you’ll want and need: some awesome Airbnbs, a warm climate, archaeological sites and crystal clear waters.
Paphos Archaeological Site is located at the Harbour in Paphos, it’s a must-see. Reading all the available information is a fantastic way to get to know the history behind these ruins; they’re so much more than a cool pile of rocks and broken walls.
Taste some great local specialities in one of the MANY restaurants that line the length of the harbour. Or just enjoy a stroll, either way, the harbour is a must-see for sure.
For a bit more history, exploring Paphos Castle is really cool. Explore the walls of a fort once built to protect the harbour from invaders. Or for a day trip, why not visit Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery? This twelfth-century monastery is in the tranquil Cypriot mountains just outside Paphos.
