City overview

Despite its population of merely 60,000, Paphos is one of the most popular attractions of the island, mainly for its unique landscape. The city itself is by the sea with a long strip of shops, restaurants, bars and luxurious hotels like Almyra, Amathus and Annabelle are worth visiting even though not the highlight. What is special about Paphos is the fact that it is the home of Akamas, a national park where you can find, not only the best hotel in Cyprus (and one of the best in Europe), Anassa, but the prettiest landscape of the island, unexplored and untouched combining green hills with blue beaches. Since the area of Akamas is not yet developed, there are not a lot of accessible streets to the beaches, therefore renting a boat at the port of Latsi* to visit the fantastic beaches is a must.
