When you stay in beautiful Paphos, you want to take in everything this marvellous area has to offer. But of course, the little ones want be entertained and have fun too, so we have prepared some ideas of places to go and things to do.
There are several waterparks on offer, the main one being Aphrodite Waterpark, just outside the main Paphos tourist area. This is open from the end of March until the end of October. It has rides for all ages, but is probably aimed more at the younger age group, perhaps 3-15. You can pay on the gate, or if you book in advance you can save 15% online. The park is very clean and safe, and has all the facilities you would expect, such as free parking, free wifi and food & drink outlets.
Other waterparks in the area are not as big as Aphrodite, but can provide good fun for a few hours. They are located within the grounds of hotels, and you should contact the hotels for entry prices on a day-guest basis.
- Laura Beach Hotel between Paphos and Coral Bay
- King Evelthon Hotel just outside Paphos on the way to Coral Bay
- Aqua Sol Hotel in Coral Bay
General Kids Entertainment
Besides waterparks there some great entertainment areas to look out for.
A well known one is Luna Park at the end of Poseidonas Avenue near the big hotels (such Louis Phaeton) in Paphos/ Geroskipou. Different rides, small dodgems and a large Ferris wheel, and right by the beach too!
Paphos Zoo between Coral Bay and Agios Giorgos is always a popular day out.
George’s Ranch to see, feed or ride the ponies is great fun – for adults as well! On the cost road between Coral Bay and Agios Giogos (not far from Pafos Zoo)
Cosmic World for ten-pin bowling and indoor play area for smaller kids, right by the mall
Ithaki Amusement Park and Mini-golf in Coral Bay
Looney Land is a small play area with rides for small, located inside the mall.
In Paphos Harbour, the Moorings restaurant has a small indoor play area for under tens. Good food too.
Dinosaur Park on the coast road in Chloraka (near Laura Beach Hotel), is a smaller version of Luna Park, with bouncy castle, dinosaur inflatables, indoor play area, pool table etc.
Fun for all at Island Cove mini-golf (near the Aphrodite waterpark and go-karting). Check out the reviews, opening times etc. on TripAdvisor.
Generally regarded as the best in the region, outdoor go-karting at Paphos Karting is great fun for older children and adults. Easily accessible from the Paphos tourist areas, it has free parking and refreshments. If you want detailed lap by lap breakdown of your racing, remember to ask for it before you start!
