The “Tombs of the Kings” are to be found close to the sea in the north western necropolis of Paphos. No royalty is buried here - the name comes from the size and splendour of the tombs (although some members of the Pafian aristocracy may have been buried here.) They are cut into the rock and date back to the Hellinistic or early Roman periods.

Maa-Palaeokastro is a settlement on the western coast of Cyprus. It is 10 kilometres northwest of Paphos. It has strong fortification walls and the steep rugged cliffs afforded protection to the inhabitants up until around 1200 BC. Many archaeologists cite the destruction of Maa and other Late Bronze Age sites on the rise of the “sea peoples” which caused widespread disorder and destruction throughout the Mediterranean.

The fort of Nea Pafos (Paphos) is located at the west end of the harbour. It was built during the Frankish occupation of Cyprus in the 13th century in order to replace the Byzantine castle of 'Saranta Kolones'.

"For families there is also Paphos Aphrodite Water Park which is set within 35,000 sqm of landscaped grounds. It has a wide and varied selection of rides, attractions and facilities including the biggest family raft ride in the world."
