Coral Bay is a popular and busy seaside resort on the West Coast of Cyprus which visitors return to because of its Blue Flag beach and fun nightlife. Villa Plus has plenty of villas within walking distance of one or both of these making your holiday stress free. Coral Bay Beach, just a stroll from the resort centre, is a crescent of soft golden sand with shallow calm waters. It is perfect for relaxation. You’ll also find a choice of watersports. After a day at the beach, choose from the many restaurants and bars then let your evening begin. Our villas in Coral Bay truly give you the best of both worlds!
Local markets and shopping
Coral Bay has supermarkets and mini markets which are perfect for stocking up your villa when you arrive, or you want to cook on the BBQ. Alternatively, in the old town area of Paphos, 20 minutes from Coral Bay, you will find a fruit and fish market. Visit on a Saturday morning when the locals are around to see who the most popular stall holders are. Paphos Harbour also has a choice of shops and an occasional street market where you will be able to buy souvenirs for friends and family.
Bars and restaurants
You won't be short of restaurant options when you book a Coral Bay villa holiday. If you’re looking for a lively atmosphere, the Coral Bay Strip has plenty of cocktail bars and pubs with live music and karaoke lined up to keep you entertained until the early hours of the morning. For dining, you'll find options to suit most tastes from steak nights to Japanese teppanyaki, as well as many Cypriot dishes and fast food outlets.
A short drive uphill takes you into the heart of Peyia Village. There are several traditional tavernas with excellent local fayre, as well as restaurants offering international cuisine. Or, the small village of St George has its own little harbour and a handful of charming tavernas with seafood very much their speciality, a short drive away.
The horseshoe shaped Coral Bay beach is wide, flat with fine golden sand. You can snorkel in the crystal calm waters, set off on a catamaran trip, parasail over the sea or just enjoy a soaking up that Cypriot sun on a sun lounger. When you want a snack or drink, there is a simple beach bar. The slightly quieter Corallia Beach is separated from Coral Bay beach by a headland is great for snorkelling and relaxing. When you want some shade and a bite to eat, try the taverna by the beach. Alternatively, there is Potima Beach just a short drive away where you can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets. The beach bar there has furniture made out of recycled objects - an interesting place to visit and have lunch.
Coral Bay is a great choice for a family villa holiday with plenty of activities. The Ithaki crazy golf course is just off the main strip and has a children's play area too. Why not try the Coral Bay go-karting centre and organise a few friendly family races? Alternatively, Paphos Zoo is around 15 minutes' drive away from Coral Bay. Or take a ride into Paphos Harbour where you'll find a choice of boat trips to see this stunning coastline.
