Coral Bay

You certainly couldn't call Coral Bay a large resort but it's size is one of its best features.

It's basically one road lined with a fair selection of bars and restaurants and a scattering of typical tourist shops though there's also a decent sized supermarket.

It's a pretty laid back place but on certain nights you'll find the usual live music and karaoke [more later]. A modern nightclub has also recently opened opposite the Crown Resort Hotel though we didn't visit so can't comment.

If you do fancy a more lively night, you can always visit Paphos (about 8km) with a regular bus service operating until 11pm in the summer months costing only 65c. A taxi will cost between £8 - 10cyp though it's best to agree a price before getting in.

We love this resort because it gives you a personal touch, where you soon feel familiar and somehow a part of the atmosphere and ambience.

Be aware that there's a lot of building in the area with new villa complexes cropping up on every spare piece of land. Only time will tell if this situation helps to enhance Coral Bay's small and friendly reputation...

Wonderful Sunsets...

If you're staying at the Ascos Coral Beach Hotel, wait until sunset and go to the top floor. If the firedoor that leads to the roof is open, (as it should be!) sneak out and you'll get some brilliant photos (probably even better than mine!)

    Going tommorrow for the second time this year and 5th time in 4 years. I know what you mean, it feels like going home. My favourite restuarant is Palm Grove. We love the snorkelling up near Agios Georgios. Mike
