Kato Paphos (the lower part of Paphos town) is built on the site of the ancient city and port town. It has bars and nightlife, culture and concerts. The waterfront is a popular spot for an evening stroll out to the harbour and medieval castle.
Paphos Harbour is a lively stretch of waterside eateries looking back over Paphos and the marina. Stop at the end of the stretch for an atmospheric portside aperitif. Or grab an ice cream at gelateria.
Paphos Castle is at the end of the harbour. This medieval keep hosts concerts and cultural events. Keep an eye out for what’s going on!
Behind the Castle and Harbour lies the Archaeological Park and the Tomb of the Kings. The antiquities are an amazing educational experience for all the family. Keep an eye out for concerts in the sites too!
But Paphos also boasts a lively nightlife. Bar Street just off the front is packed with watering holes. And the nightclub Loft is open till the small hours.
St. George’s Tavern in Paphos is legendary. Prepare to be bombarded with meze. The set menu is whatever the chef is doing that day. The way it should be. Another traditional taverna serving Cypriot meze is The Windmill. And at the eastern end of the front is Pinguino looking out to the marina and harbour.
The King’s Avenue Mall is Kato Paphos’ top shopping spot. It has a Carrefour, M&S, Wagamama and a whole lot more. Drop the smaller kids at the crèche and get a few hours of precious retail therapy.
And that’s not all…
From the mall and west along the coast road is The Strip, full of bars and restaurants. Lidl, Aphrodite Water Park and a host of hotels lie along here.
