Coral Bay is situated on the west coast of Cyprus, about 11 kilometers north of Paphos. Coral Bay was just a beach until the beginning of the 80’s. Coral Bay has a number of long white sandy beaches and is thought, by many, to be the most beautiful resort on the island. The resort now has a number of hotels and many bars, pubs, shops and restaurants and a good night life.
Peyia is situated about 3 km approx. from Coral Bay. For the more energetic easy walking distance, however if you wish to be more like the locals then the only way to get around is by car. There are plenty of parking places in Peyia and again if you cannot find one do as the locals do and abandon your car anywhere!!! The main car park is situated on the left hand side of the road (going up the hill with Coral bay behind you) just after the chemist, it is well sign posted.
Facilities in Peyia are mainly situated on the main road leading into Peyia village. You will find a Chemist, bakery, which serves delicious hot bread first thing in the morning. Butchers, who speaks some English but if you have trouble with the Greek language animal noises will do!!!
There are plenty of taverns to choose from serving a variety of local dishes, my favorite is “Cousins Tavern” which is situated in the centre of the village and they serve an excellent Meze. Other restaurants include “Peyia Tavern”, and the “Costas Tavern”.
