About

Villa Corrado is situated in a quiet crescent less than a 10 minute walk to the beaches of Coral Bay (Coral Bay Beach and Corralia Beach) and to the Coral Bay High Street with shops, restaurants and bars.

Coral Bay is approximately 15 minutes drive to Paphos harbour and Old Town where you can enjoy walking around the old market and some of the new shops and cafes.

Coral Bay and Surrounding Area

The Coral Bay area is the only area in Cyprus to grow bananas commercially due to the high humidity.  Therefore as you travel around you will see many plantations, as well as lemon, orange, figs and avocado trees to name a few.

You may also find on your travels around the island encounter large herds of goats being driven by the shepherd to graze on common ground.  Goat and sheep milk is used in the manufacturing of halloumi  and is a valuable export commodity for Cyprus.

On the western side of Coral Bay heading towards Agios Georgious is the Akamas Peninsular where you will find Lara Beach and the metal baskets used to surround and protect the turtle nests.  The Akamas Peninsular is an unmade road and therefore you need to be prepared for a bumpy ride but has beautiful scenery and well worth the visit.

  1. I read the blog post »Cyprus Cicadas«, posted on June 26, 2017 by Fionna.
    On the photos is singing cicada species Cicada lodosi.

    You are a bit overestimated the loudness of cicada song to up to 100 decibels. 100 decibels would damage you hearing capability permanently.

    You write »Cicadas remain above ground for about a month to reproduce, before laying their eggs on tree branches and dying. The cicada offsprings will fall to the ground and burrow in the soil until they re-emerge 13-17 years later.« This is valid only for 8 species of the genus Magicicada , which is distributed in North America only. Cicada lodosi re-emerge after 3 to 4 years.

    Best wishes, Tomi
