Places of Interest

 

The hotel occupies a superb location overlooking the golden sandy beaches and sparkling waters of Coral bay. Adjacent to the Akamas peninsular, an area protected by UNESCO, the Coral Beach Hotel & Resort offers the perfect base for exploration, either by jeep or on horseback.

This part of Cyprus was a late-comer in tourism terms, and so still retains much of its original charm, with rustic tavernas and olive groves, as well as safe, sandy beaches and, of course, the newer clubs and bars.

The Odeon, which is one of the most important archaeological sites in Cyprus, was built in the second century. Adonis Baths' history relates to the love story of Aphrodite and Adonis.

Situated just 1 kilometre away from Kato Paphos port, the Agia Solomoni church is home to 12th century Christian catacombs, although some say that they are originally graves dating back to the Hellenistic period.

Located about 4 kilometres from the fishing village of Pegeia, the early Christian Basilicas of Agios Georgios belong to the Agios Georgios settlement.

Located in the Akamas Peninsula, near the little fishing village of Latchi, is the famous mythological site 'Baths of Aphrodite.

Arena Sports can assist with organizing any private sightseeing excursions and activities for the group upon request.

    Comments:  We have been very happy with our camp here in Cyprus. Everything has been organised very effectively and we have been looked after each day by Arena staff. The Coral Beach Hotel is very comfortable and an ideal base for a camp. We would certainly consider this as a venue again and hope that this has given us a good bookst into World Junior Championships in Dubai. Thank You

    Comments:  This is our 6th visit to the Coral Beach and the 50m pool. We feel the facilities are perfect for our needs with gym training, excellent outdoor swim training facility close by. In addition, the quality of hotel is ideal and closeness of amenities such as supermarket and entertainment. The arena staff are excellent, have helped us with a matter of minor issues before and during our stay. We would recommend a training camp to other swim teams.
