How to Spend 1 Day in Paphos

How to Spend 1 Day in Paphos

The pretty harbor town of Paphos, on Cyprus’ southwest coast, promises sun, sea, sand, and spectacular ancient remains in the form of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Kato Paphos Archaeological Site. With just 24 hours to explore, you can get a taste of all Paphos has to offer with the following action-packed itinerary. 

Morning: Ancient History

Devote the morning to exploring Paphos’ rich history. Get in ahead of the crowds with a guided morning tour of Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, a UNESCO-recognized site famous for its Roman ruins and colorful ancient mosaics depicting Greek myths. For a self-paced tour, take a seat aboard a hop-on hop-off bus and listen to commentary as you cruise by historical attractions including the Tombs of the Kings, an underground Roman burial site, and St. Paul’s Pillar, where St. Paul was supposedly tied and flogged as punishment for preaching Christianity. 

Afternoon: Watery Adventures

As temperatures pick up, cool off with some water-based fun. Don a swimsuit and choose between a range of water-related activities, ranging from the gentle to the high-adrenaline. Rent a boat and steer yourself out to the sheltered Blue Lagoon, try your hand at snorkeling or scuba diving under the instruction of an expert, or ride an all-terrain vehicle to out-of-town swimming spots such as Aphrodite’s Rock (the supposed birthplace of the Greek goddess of beauty) and Geroskipou Beach. Families traveling with young children may opt to visit Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark, where slides, chutes, wave pools, and a lazy river entertain the littles for hours.

Night: An Explosive Evening

End your day on a high note with an intimate dinner cruise along the scenic southwest coast of Cyprus. Set sail from the harbor in early evening, enjoying cocktails from the onboard bar, a buffet dinner, and stunning sunset views. Cruises include live entertainment from singers and dancers, as well as front-row views of a dazzling fireworks display that lights up the skies above the harbor with an kaleidoscope of color—an unforgettable way to end a day in Paphos.
