With over 38% of all tourists choosing Paphos and the local surrounding areas as their preferred destination, Paphos beats the other destinations such as Limassol, Nicosia, Agia Napa and Larnaca with the volume of tourists that visit.

Surrounded by an immaculate coastline, clean beaches, the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and a backdrop of majestic mountains; visitors are spoilt for choice. Archaeological sites, famous mosaics, tombs, the mythical beauty of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite and the legend of Aphrodite’s Rock are all unique qualities that will forever add to the lure of Paphos.
A positive side effect of such tourism attraction into the area, is that a larger number of investors see the Paphos region as a very promising investment choice, especially when investing in real estate for a favourable ROI (return on investment).
