it is great to see some much archaeology available to visit on the island of Cyprus and not overly priced to enter, great views out to sea and along the coast from this site as well as a museum telling the story. worth a visit

One of those places that you should visit to learn something about the history of Cyprus, but it is a little under-whelming and so much could have been done.

if youre a history/archeology buff, this is a fantastic place, but beyond that, spending a great deal of time here is less than exciting. The photographs I took were amazing, however.

Do not waste your money on this site, absolute very little to nothing worth to see here. Better ruins to discover that has actual meaning. A so called museum has been built that offers nothing but photo pictures under a dome roof. Really disappointed.

The site is interesting, with some good surviving Cyclopean walls and the outlines of the settlement, but there are no artefacts in the museum, just fairly detailed explanations and maps about Mycenaen settlements in Cyprus, and trade in the Mediterranean at the time. The museum building itself though is fascinating - a little gem of architecture in its own right.... More

Maa-Paleokastro can be found at the far end of Coral Bay just beyond Thalassa Boutique Hotel and Spa. It is well signposted from Coral Bay Avenue. Access is via a narrow block paved road at the far end of the hotel car park. There is plenty of parking on the site and toilets. Entry is about 2Eu and kids free.... More

Despite my interest in all thing historical, i found it difficult to be enthusiastic about this site. The bronze age inhabitants (circa BC2000) of this headland probably didn't have any estate agents (Realtors) amongst their number, but they could certainly pick the best spot. Little remains other than a reassembled wall and a few stones outlining the foundations of their... More

Nothing really to see here, only a few rocks where were the ancient houses, and that's it; there are no information panels at all. The place is next to Coral Bay Beach.
