Based in the heart of Paphos
Perched on the west coast of Cyprus, there’s a hilly Old Town, a string of world-famous clubs and a staggering collection of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos places you just two kilometres from the resort’s yacht-filled harbour and 45 minutes from the airport. You’ve already got a 150-metre stretch of powder white sands just a stone’s throw away and the iconic Tomb of the Kings isn’t far either with its 1,000-year-old history.
10 minutes up the coast stumble across Coral Bay, which is home to some of the best sand spots in Cyprus and a wealth of watersports.
