Stress levels are high, and work commitments can often mean that we can’t take off any great length of time to take a break. However, a weekend away can do us the world of good, and Paphos is the perfect place to visit for a short break. While there’s enough to see and do in Paphos to fill a fortnight, you really can get the most out of your 48 hours with some careful planning.
Get your itinerary at the ready and plan in advance. Of course you can change your plans when you get there, but if you have an idea of what you want to do within your time frame, having a plan to follow will ensure you get the very best from your time in Paphos. Here are just some suggestions for how to plan your break…
Take a stroll around the old town. This is the perfect time to pick up your souvenirs in the local market. If you are self catering, you can stock up on the freshest local fruits and vegetables too. Don’t forget to pick up a cheeky bottle of local wine too, it’s been produced in Paphos for more than 6000 years!
There’s a great afternoon of family fun to be had at the Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark. The kids will love it and it’s the perfect way to cool down when the sun reaches its peak. It’s centrally located, near to several hotels so you won’t be spending much time travelling to and from the park. With everything from high adrenaline slides for the thrill seekers, to the relaxing lazy river ride, it’s an afternoon the whole family can enjoy.
Treat yourself and sit down to some delicious local Meze. Pick a local taverna and enjoy the tasty dishes, carefully selected and brought to your table one by one. You will have locally grown olives, fresh breads with traditional Greek dips, and then a selection of dishes. The seafood in Paphos is divine, but don’t miss out on the gorgeous kebabs either.
Take a spa treatment at Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort, then go for a walk and coffee at the harbour. If you are a fan of historical sites, you certainly won’t be disappointed in Paphos. There are so many sites of important historical interest, you would struggle to see them on a short break, but by taking a Paphos car rental, you can see them all much faster than you possibly could on foot.
Every holiday to Paphos should include some time to relax on the beach. You had a busy morning seeing the sites, so take a trip to one of the beautiful beaches. Pick the beach closest to your your holiday villa to save even more time. In Paphos, it really doesn’t matter which beach you choose as they are all magnificent! Take a picnic and save time on eating on. Simply eat while you chill out on the golden sands!
For your final evening in Paphos, why not take it easy before your trip home. You have already seen and done so much, you can afford to relax. Crack open that bottle of wine you bought at the market, and sit on your balcony to watch the stunning sunset. A sunset in Paphos beats anything you can see back home!
