Paphos Harbour


Paphos Castle:
Paphos Castle in Paphos, Cyprus
Paphos Harbour is a tourist area in Paphos, as well as being a working harbor (principally used by relatively small craft and pleasure boats).

There is a large pedestrianized area around the harbor, which contains many restaurants, bars, and tourist shops. Additionally, the town center of Paphos is just a short walk away, and contains even more bars, restaurants, etc.

Also in the vicinity of the harbor is the Paphos Mosaics. This is a collection of Roman mosaics (dating from the 2nd century to 5th century AD) recovered from Roman villas. The mosaics generally depict scenes from Greek/Roman mythology, and are considered to be some of the finest surviving Roman mosaics in the entire Eastern Mediterranean region.

From the harbour area itself, excursions and boat outings (such as fishing trips, trips glass-bottomed boats, etc.) can be booked. The most noteable landmark in the harbor-area is Paphos Castle.

In September of each year, an open-air cultural festival is held in Paphos. Paphos Castle serves as a backdrop for many of the events in that festival.


Personal Experiences of Paphos Harbour


I have been on vacation to Cyprus many times, and always visit the Paphos Harbour, usually several times on each vacation.

There are several restaurants (all serving Greek Cypriot cuisine, including a wide range of fish and seafood) in the Harbour area, including Theo's, The Castle, Poseidonas, and the Pelican Restaurant. The Pelican is particularly memorable as there are often one or more pelican birds wondering around the restaurant.

I have found the restaurant prices in the area seem to have gone up quite a lot in recent years (at one time, we used to eat our evening meal at Paphos Harbour nearly everyday, but alas prices are now higher), but it is still worth visiting the area.

As well as restaurants, also in the area are gift shops, and a bar. Additionally, there also at least 2 ice-cream stands.

The Harbour area is always busy with people, and there is plenty going on. On weekends especially the area seems to be busy not only with tourists, but with locals too. As I said, definitely worth visiting!
