Cyprus Taxi arrange taxi and mini bus transfers from both Paphos and Larnaca airports to Coral Bay.

Coral Bay is a small coastal resort situated approximately 15 minutes drive away from Paphos. The resort is home to some of the most exclusive hotels in Paphos, and boasts a beautiful sandy beach ‘Coral Bay Beach’.

This horseshoe shaped Cyprus beach is full of golden sand and is located between two headlands and has been awarded the Blue Flag. The lovely sandy beach and shallow waters are excellent for swimming, sunbathing and water sports such as pedal boats and water skiing. Also beach volley ball is enjoyed by those wanting fun in the sun.

For those who just want to chill out and swim and soak up the sun there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas plus changing rooms, showers and toilet facilities.

Coral Bay is a fairly new resort so all the hotels and apartments are quite modern with every conceivable luxury. There is no shortage of clubs, bars and restaurants in and around Coral Bay. All this makes it a perfect place for families and couples alike; looking for a holiday with everything in one place. In fact if your ideal Cyprus holiday involves total relaxation and pampering, Coral bay is the place for you.

Coral Bay is also a great base for exploring the coastline north of Paphos, where a jigsaw of coves and inlets hide some of the best (and most isolated) beaches on the island.

Nearby is the sleepy hamlet of St Georges, known as Sea Caves, where you will find many popular fish restaurants.

Also worth visiting in St George is the Paphos Zoo. The project started with Mr Christos Christoforou’s love for birds and wildlife. The Zoo was originally going to be for Mr Christoforou’s private use to house his enormous private collection of Birds, but he decided to open the Zoo for the public, so that they may also enjoy the splendours of his private collection.

Mr Christoforou’s other aim was to educate the local community about the importance of caring and conserving all bird and animal life. The Zoo took 3 years to complete & it was finally open to the public in September 2003.

As Mr Christoforou is committed to education he is constantly upgrading & adding new features to the Zoo, in May 2004 the Amphitheatre, which will hold 350 guests, opened. The Amphitheatre’s main purpose is to hold educational talks and programmes about the various wildlife in the Zoo as well as showing wildlife documentaries. You can also enjoy the daily Parrot & Owl shows which will educate the public as to how agile & clever these birds are.

The Zoo is open all year around and is definitely worth a visit.

The lovely village of Peyia is not far away with a variety of tavernas where you can enjoy traditional Cypriot cuisine.
