Markets in the Paphos Area

Markets in the Pafos Area


Old Town Market – The Paphos Market is located in the old town region of Paphos near the Post Office and the Moutallos Mosque. The market is open every day from around 08.00 to 13 hrs, except Sunday and is easily accessible as buses (at 1 Euro per journey) go from all over Paphos to the market. There is a variety of shopping to do ranging from fruit & vegetables, (best on Wednesday)  seafood, leather shoes and handbags. There are some taverns and restaurants nearby where one can rest after a long day of shopping. Parking opposite entrance.



Duck Pond Market – Is open Wednesdays & Sundays 8am – 2pm. Here you’ll find quite a few stalls but it’s mainly car booters trying to sell off their own personal stuff, lots of tat, some good bargains. It’s located just off the main Pafos – Coral Bay road before the left turn to Akti Hotel (coming from Pafos).




Timi Market – is open on Sundays only, 8am – 2pm. This is an open air market located not far from Paphos airport, you’ll most likely pass it when you’re on your way to your accommodation but you won’t see it as it’s only open Sunday mornings. It’s a mixed market with ex-pats, local Cypriots & anyone else who wants to sell their goods here. You can buy almost anything you like here and it’s most probably the biggest open air market in the area.


‘Paphiakos Market’ at the Paphiakos animal centre every Saturday, it’s just along the road from the Begonia Garden centre (just up from the harbour at the crossroads) going away from Tombs of Kings road. Similar items to car boot sale.

Scenic drives in Paphos and Polis

No Comments

The Coral Beach Resort Hotel or our 3 bedroom Villa Athena are on the edge of Coral Bay, and from here there is a lovely drive on a quiet tarmac lane  to the Sea Caves. The left turns are worth investigating, as they will take you down to the sea, and to Yiallos Taverna, Oneira Bar etc. Very pretty, especially late afternoon and sunset, there are tracks for walking or a stroll next to the sea.

If you are staying at Polis, there are many drives of course, but 2 next to the sea are worthwhile.

So Polis to sleepy Pyrgos E704, (border now open), will take a good hour and a half, lots of bends. When you arrive at Pyrgos there is a heart shaped sandy beach that does not get busy,  (I took this photo in July), and a village with a beautiful ancient protected tree that is almost worth the drive just to see! Leave time to admire the views, take tracks to deserted beaches,  and perhaps stop for fish at Pomos.


 Driving in the opposite direction from Polis, take the E713 past Latchi, past the Anassa Hotel, pass our 2 beachside villas, 2 bedroom Villa Aphrodite and 4 bedroom Villa Amorosa, and follow signs towards the Baths of Aphrodite, where the road ends and you have to proceed on foot, as this is the wonderful rugged and dramatic Akamas National Park. Boat trips and boat hire are available from Latchi. Recommended.

With thanks to C.B. for this one:

I enjoy tackling the rougher roads in the Troodos and we get a 4×4 vehicle just for that reason. You might mention this exhilarating opportunity in your ‘General info..’, being careful to warn folk not to try this in a normal saloon car. From Agios Dimitrianos near Polemi there is a cracking run with the first third over dirt roads not navigable by saloon cars and all of it fantastically scenic :

Take the E703 through Agios Dimitrianos and, immediately after passing the wall of the Kannaviou Dam, take the track on the left signposted ‘Stavros tis Psokas’. This is a 20 km track over which your speed will never be more than 10 or 15 km/h, and often much less,  (so it takes over an hour to cover this part). Real ‘Bear Grills’ territory. Just before Stavros, the track emerges back onto a road. From there, pick your own destination but I think that the run through Cedar Valley, on to Kykkos Monastery and back home via Pano Panagia (choice of road or more dirt track) is fabulous. The whole trip takes an afternoon. It is, as you have suggested elsewhere, quite tiring but fantastic fun.
