Enjoying stunning sea views from the garden, pool and roof terrace, the aptly named Villa Thalassa (meaning sea) sits in a splendid location on the coast between Coral Bay and Sea Caves. From morning to night, whether you are sunbathing by the pool, enjoying an alfresco lunch or an early evening aperitif on the roof terrace, the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea are your constant companion.   

The spacious interior is simply styled with white walls and tiled floors, with the open plan living accommodation benefitting from three sets of patio doors leading onto the covered terrace. Each of the bedrooms has its own en suite facilities, making Villa Thalassa an appealing choice for a group of friends or a multigenerational gathering. The ‘figure of eight’ pool sits in front of the terrace with an expanse of garden beyond.  At the end of the garden, a gate opens onto the coastal path which stretches in both directions.  Directly in front lies the rocky coastline and the sea.  

Amenities are close at hand: a restaurant and café can be found 300m along the nearby road, a seafront restaurant recommended by locals is a 15 minute walk and shops a 5 minute drive.  Two of the beaches (Coral Bay and Laourou) in the area have been awarded Blue Flag status and provide full beach amenities including water sports.  Boat cruises follow the rocky coastline, providing the perfect way to see the caves which have formed over the centuries.

Great Things to Do Near Villa Thalassa

Watersports

There is a good choice of watersports available from the beach at Coral Bay including pedaloes, banana boats, waterskiing and there is also a diving school for both beginners and qualified divers.

Lara Bay

One of the most isolated beaches on the island, it is a haven for green and loggerhead turtles to lay their eggs. During the laying season (May to September) the females struggle ashore to lay their eggs and bury them.  Volunteers then relocate the eggs to a fenced hatchery, protecting them from predators. After seven weeks the eggs hatch and the babies make their way to the water.

Take a dip in the Blue Lagoon

This is a sheltered bay in the Akamas peninsula, whose crystal clear waters are usually warmer than the rest of the area.  A variety of boat trips leave from Latchi, and most include a stop off for a refreshing swim.

Paphos

A town of two parts – Kato (Lower) Paphos is the area around the harbour and castle and is the touristy hub with hotels, cafes, bars, shops and from where excursions are sold and boat trips depart. However, parts of it have Unesco World Heritage status with fine Roman ruins and mosaics as well as Byzantine remains. Ktima Paphos lies 3km uphill and features narrow, winding streets around the Turkish Quarter which has been turned into a covered market. Lovely views of the town below can be enjoyed from the cafes and bars on the edge of this part of town.

Snorkelling…

Manolis Cove on the Akamas peninsula sits right beside the Blue Lagoon and is very popular for snorkelling.  There are sea caves to explore here.

Hop On-Hop Off bus excursion

The ever popular way to explore somewhere at your own pace.  The tour of Paphos lasts 60 minutes and stops at the main points of interest around the town, including the Tombs of the Kings, St Paul’s Pillar, Paphos Old Town and the Archaeological Museum.

Play a round of golf!

This corner of Cyprus has a selection of courses, among them being Marios Golf Park (www.mariosgolfpark.com), Eléa Golf Course (www.eleaestate.com) or Minthis Golf Club (www.minthisresort.com)

Visit a water park

Aphrodite Waterpark, the largest water park in the Paphos region with a huge choice of slides, pools and water attractions, is open every day from the end of March to the beginning of November.

Anyone for tennis?

For those who wish to play, courts can be hired at the Minthis resort in the hills, where there is also a golf course.

In the footsteps of Aphrodite

Paphos is famously the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, and subsequently a place of pilgrimage for the entire Hellenic world. Aphrodite’s Rock is a massive stone that marks the spot where she emerged from the sea. The Baths of Aphrodite, located between Polis and Cape Arnaouti, are formed by a natural grotto and where she reputedly bathed after her liaisons with Adonis.

Watch the sun setting

The Western end of Cyprus is perfect for watching this fascinating spectacle. Observing the sky coming alive with fiery crimson and orange hues never fails to please! Two of the most popular places to enjoy it are at Aphrodite’s Rock or Paphos Medieval Castle.

The Akamas Peninsula

This wild corner of the north west is virtually uninhabited and covered with forests. Ideal for exploring on foot, it is home to many species of wildlife, flora, fauna, birds and butterflies. It is popular with walkers and maps of the walks and nature trails can be obtained from the Tourist Offices in Polis and Paphos.
