Paphos is not a large town, but it is a bit spead out. We walked, used local buses & hired a car for a while to get us further afield to the troodos mountains etc.
If you dont want to drive there, there are plenty of travel agents with organised tours to places.
Drive on the Left
Cyprus drives on the left. This is due to the heavy British influence of the island. This is ideal for UK and Japanese drivers but may be confusing for European of American drivers as most of the rest of the medateranean drives on the right.
Car Hire is reasonable
Car Hire is reasonable, you will need your driver's licence. Be sure that your stupid fiance doesn't put diesel into the car when it actually takes petrol. Driving is a good way to view the spreadout places on the island.
The bus service to and from Paphos to Coral bay is very good, there are 2 different bus services - one goes to just Paphos Harbour (Kato Paphos) and the other one goes to the harbour and then up into the town centre. All buses to Coral Bay goes through the main drag then on to the beach. The cost is 50c each way-very resonable. Each bus route runs about every quarter of an hour and goes on till late at night (so you can have a few drinks)!
With a plane from Transavia....
With a plane from Transavia. We had to go to Lanarca first and then to Paphos. About 4 and a half hour flying from Holland
Getting around you can do in a rent-a-car.
Specially when you are going to the Trodos mountains.
Airport and Motorcycles
Getting around is easy in Cyprus. Rent a hassle-free motorcycle which only requires your driver's license and passport for safekeeping. The motorcycles are cheap to rent with helmuts provided!
Transport in the villages is a more sedate four-legged variety.....I just love to see these donkeys, is just seem to sums up the laid back atmosphere of the villages for me.
Rent a car
Rent a car. Car rental at the airport was included in our 'package' holiday. A car is really indispensable if you want to go sight-seeing.
