The harbor and castle were lovely really clean and tidy and beautiful sunsets at night. The Restaurants were really reasonable to eat of drink there but I did travel on 14th December so out of season. Weather very good that time of year even got a suntan. Harbour was quiet compared to the summer season

On our previous visits this site has been closed, this time it was open and we really enjoyed the views, however there was not a lot to look at internally.

Looks like it is still being renovated. Views from the top are spectacular but there is nothing of note inside. All the rooms are barred so you can't enter. You can see through but, as I said, there is nothing to see but small stone rooms which could be dungeons or anything.

You cannot visit paphos and not visit the castle! It is not expensive and its worth visiting! The view from the top is nice and the whole scenery around the castle with the taverns and the harbour is really beautiful!

Visited the harbour on a rainy day and the Kings Bar was the first in sight and a welcome haven from the rain. Nothing special here, a pretty boring and overcooked omelette for lunch, so not particularly recommended on that count. Walked along the harbour when the rain stopped and came across a really nice craft market where I could... More

This is an excellent place to idle/lounge with a decent cup of coffee or cold drink. As you relax wtch the fishermen coming and going. There is often a free group singing and dancing in the traditional greek costumes. Lots of places to eat and relax. They are a tad pricey but your paying for the ambience and view.

Very disappointed with this castle , waste of money as there was very little to see inside or up on the battlements. Half the inside was boarded off with scaffolding clearly visible to the eye, the only good point was the view from the top overlooking the harbour one way and the sea the other way.

I went with my wife and found it impossible to even get on the bridge into the castle as there was a very deep step and no one able to provide either help or better still a ramp
