Location & Things to Do

About Coral Bay

Villa Coralie is situated in Coral Bay just to the north of Paphos. Coral Bay itself is an upmarket quaint little town which has managed to retain its local flavour. Coral Bay has one of the longest and finest stretches of golden sand in the area. This is the ideal base from which to tour the magnificent Troodos Mountains or to discover the delights of the little fishing villages of Latchi and Polis. In the hills overlooking Coral Bay is the village of Pegeia which is notable for half a dozen excellent tavernas in and around its square.
