Coral Bay Beach Tour
Coral Bay Beach is one of the Jewels in Paphos' Tourism Crown. It is the perfect place for a family to enjoy a day at the seaside. Numerous watersports are available, and facilities at either end ensure that everybody is properly catered for. In this tour we visit the beach twice. We start after a rainstorm, on the Eastern side, and finish on a sunny day, on the opposite side of the bay. Come and see what we saw along the way...
Coral Bay From Above
We begin our tour looking down at the beach, from a little-used carpark amongst some villas. You can walk down to the beach from here, but instead I am going to go round to the main carpark.
To get to Coral Bay Beach, you drive along Coral Bay Strip, go down the small hill then turn left into a big parking area. On the far side of this a bumpy track runs down to another, much smaller parking area. This is where I am now.
In this area you will find a kiosk serving food and drink, as well as toilets and showers.
Incidentally, if you want to visit Coral Bay Beach but don't have a car, you need to get the 615 bus that runs very frequently from Paphos Harbour to Coral Bay.
To The Sand
Let's go down to the beach itself now.
The sunbeds in Cyprus normally cost the same: €2.50 for a bed and €2.50 for an umbrella. There are a couple of beaches that have areas with private sunbeds available for hire, but they are the exception, rather than the norm.
