“The squat medieval fort, which protected Paphos’ harbor for centuries, is one of the most popular tourist magnets in the Paphos District of Cyprus. It is an excellent example of defensive architecture that saw several large-scale alterations and often changed hands, being rebuilt and redesigned for a couple of times. The square in front of it often hosts cultural events. For example, it is highly recommended to visit the Aphrodite Opera Festival, which is annually held there in September.”

Seafood Restaurant

“Great sea food and sushi meals. Basic fish & chips to quality sea food menus. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere, popular with locals and tourists alike. Need to book at week ends and in height of tourist season. Sister restaurant in Coral Bay but not quite as good in my opinion. However, my last night guests loved it.”
