The beautiful beach resort of Coral Bay is often described as the best bay on the west of the island. And it's no surprise, when you consider the calm turquoise sea, dipping gently into some of the clearest off shore diving space in the Mediterranean, the scattered palm trees, the 600 metres of soft white sand and, in summertime, the almost cloudless blue skies.
Tourism came to the seaside village of Coral Bay later than many other Mediterranean holiday destinations, and despite its popularity the resort has retained a genuine local charm. The pace of life is very laid back and things tend to centre around the activity on the beach. You will also find lots of very friendly tavernas and restaurants selling delicious local dishes, with seafood a speciality.
The relaxing environment of the resort, the long warm days and simple pleasures of good food and beautiful views may well lull you into that perfect holiday mood. However, if you want to get up and explore, Coral Bay is a wonderful base from which to see Cyprus' best and most secluded beaches. All along this coastline you will find little sandy coves, protected by the rugged coastline, just perfect for a day trip out. If you don't fancy the walk this may well be the time to make use of your free hire car.
