Also within walking distance the popular and lively Bar Street with a mixture of clubs and night life near the famous Paphos Harbour just a 25 mins walk or short bus ride away. During the day the Harbour is a perfect place to relax and watch the busy café's and restaurants, with the Mediaeval Ottoman fort as a back drop and traditional fishing industry delivering their daily catch. At night it is a bustling vibrant place with plenty going on.
The Famous Tombs of the Kings, grand Paphian dignitaries and the aristocrats of Cyprus started building and using this maze of vaults and chambers around 300 BC. Hewn from solid rock the tombs are made up of numerous alcoves and caves covering a vast area towards the beach. A must for anyone interested in the history and mythology of this lovely Greek island.
The beach has sun beds and a snack bar, though the beach is mostly pebble in places it has great views of the lighthouse and 95 hectare Archaeology Park all along the coast with mosaics of gods, goddesses monsters and myths. Also there are a few good sandy beaches all along the coast towards the popular Coral Bay area which is a 12 mins drive from Paphos; the local buses are cheap and very regular all along the coast.
If you are looking for a perfect golf destination then look no further, there are three courses within a 25 minute drive; Aphrodite Hills, Tsada Golf Club and Secret Valley Golf Club, all are championship courses and are perfect for a golfing holiday. They are also building 2 more courses to be completed 2009.
During busier months, various water sports are on offer including pedalos, water skiing, banana boats, jet skis and windsurfing. The harbour offers various boat trips including a Spanish Galleon, Catamaran, Glass Bottom boats, Speed Boats, Jet Boats and a large ‘Booze Cruise' liner. There are multiple Jet Ski hire companies so you can hire these in most places on the sea front. If you are feeling adventurous during your Paphos rental you can take a trip to the Troodos Mountains and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, or if you are visiting during the winter months skiing and snowboarding are even available. If you like the water you can rest assured that every kind of water sports are close at hand.
Another of the major attractions of a Paphos rental is Paphos' diving treasures including Maninji Island, Akamas Peninsula and the fourth largest wreck dive in the world - The Wreck of Zenobia; for experienced divers only. There are various dive companies in the town that offer courses for beginners so you can always learn to dive in Paphos. If diving is not for you, why not venture out to try turtle watching, go-karting, jeep safari, trekking, cycling, golfing or go on an archaeological dig.

Car hire is not expensive especially at the quieter times of the year and can be arranged for you, while so much is within walking distance of this property and a car is not essential, for those that wish to explore the island's many charms, including the legend of Aphrodite's beach and rocks where she was born, also the Water Park, Troodos mountains and the wineries. Car hire is easy to arrange either from the airport or the resort.
