Coral Bay, Cyprus
Coral Bay is a quiet, laid back resort with lots of options for a quiet drink and relaxed meal. There are plenty of local amenities so anything you need is close at hand, though there is not much to do other than lazing on the beach and soaking up the sun.
Coral Bay is by no means as big and as flashy as its neighbour. Nevertheless you won't be short on those holiday essentials, including banks, supermarkets and shops. The evening scene is that of relaxed and laid back dining and while away the hours over drinks. If you want something a bit livelier at night then the short bus trip will take you directly into Paphos where you can party the night away.Read more about: Things to do in the area | Coral Bay Reviews
