Coral Bay Travel Guide

Coral Bay Local History

Coral Bay is a small town about 15 minutes drive from Paphos in southwest Cyprus. Until the boom of the tourist industry hit Cyprus, Coral Bay was just that a bay.

It is now home to several hotels overlooking the best sandy beeches on the island with bustling cafes and restaurants.

Coral Bay Attractions

Top Attractions

Dive Sites Apart from shopping, or the beach, the major attraction of Coral Bay is its diving treasures. The dive companies in the town offer courses for beginners so even if you have never tried this, you are not excluded. The following are some of the diving sites of Coral Bay:

Maninji Island: Between 8 and 20m deep this is regarded as the most scenic dive on the coast with cliffs, caves coral and 'swim throughs'.

Akamas Peninsula: In the summer this site is frequented by turtles, which makes it extremely popular.
Wreck of the Zenobia: This is the fourth larges wreck dive in the world; it is usually a day trip, for experienced divers only.

Coral King Definitely the best restaurant in Coral Bay - good food, value for money and excellent service.

Othellos The WORST restaurant I have ever visited ANYWHERE. Service was appalling, food was inedible and the staff were obnoxious - especially the manageress. We saw four other tables complaining as well as us, and would recommend you avoid at all costs

Corallo Hnads down the best Cypriot food in Coral Bay. My husband and I must have tried a bunch of restaurants in town, but this definitely had the best local food.

Kleos Kleos is a great night out and the best bar in coral bay, DJ Ginger isn’t the resident DJ anymore, as he moved to England which is a shame and he was brilliant but is still a good night out.

Goosefat & Garlic On the way to Akamas from Coral Bay on the main road. Really quite a surprise - something you would expect to find in Nicosia but not in a holiday resort. You wouldn't want to go every night since it's a dining expereience but to be on holiday in Coral Bay and miss this restaurant would be a mistake.

Corallo Restaurant The food is marvellous (delicious) Chicken Corallo is one of my favourite. Always fresh Sea bream - the cook - Harry - is very friendly and skilled. What else - I've been there many times and I would visit it again. Next spring I hope. PS. The staff are great.

Goosefat and Garlic About a mile past Coral Bay, toward Akamas National Park. Modern Meditteraenean cuisine in superb surroundings, great wine(Try the Cloudy Bay). Think "Le Petit Blanc". Excellent service.

Kikkos Sports themed bar ,loads of TV screens. Cosy, friendly, great atmosphere. Decent snacks. Always love to sit outside and people watch. Does a mean Brandy Sour.

The Millenium Bar The Millenium Bar in Coral Bay may serve nice cocktails but I would recommend that people avoid this bar as on our holiday August 2006 we were attacked by around 12 to 15 local thugs and I received a broken arm, my friends received serious injuries also. The police took no action. Visit at your peril!!!!

I think "CORALLO" is definitely the best restaurant in the area. Reasonable prices, good food, friendly and traditional atmosphere. Try Chef's Specialities.

submitted by Steve, 30/12/05

Mr Q's Fast Food Van The best fast food van in Coral Bay (actually its the only one I've seen in Cyprus!) Good for those staying in villa's. Prices are cheap but service can be slow.

Starlight Disco Oh my god, this club is amazing, i met some seriously awesome people there, including the DJ (DJ Mikey B or DJ Ginger) he's a wicked DJ and plays everything from old tunes to new club anthems. Honestly can't say anything bad about this club, its amazing!
