Paphos is located in the southwestern part of Cyprus. It is divided into two: Paphos, which is also known as Ktima, considered to be the center of the city, and Kato Paphos, located on the coastline and the starting point of tourists’ stay in Paphos.
Paphos is a popular destination thanks to its mixture of pristine Mediterranean beaches and historical sites.
The Medieval Castle of Paphos is the central location of the many events taking place in Paphos, especially
during the Summer.
Tombs of the Kings, also known as the necropolis of Nea Paphos, is found in the Northern and Eastern parts of the city, just outside the fortifications. This area, also called “Necropolis”, is an open area which reaches the sea and is strewn with sights and monuments from prehistoric to medieval times, although most of the ruins date back to the Roman period.
The most famous beach in Paphos is the Blue Lagoon beach; one of the most beautiful and scenic beaches in Cyprus, where visitors can swim or snorkel in the crystal blue waters or sunbake on the golden sand. Blue Lagoon beach is located at the west of Akamas in the Paphos district.
