Sea Caves
About
At the seafront of Peyia Village are the Sea Caves of Paphos, natural caves carved into the rock faces along the shore. Swing by early in the morning to see fishermen at work or later in the afternoon for sunset. When the tide is low and the waters are calm, it's possible to swim to some of the caves and archways. Otherwise, you can also explore the caves on a boat tour that may also stop by the Blue Lagoon and Edro III Shipwreck. After exploring the caves, you can stroll along the rocky shore and stop by nearby beaches like Kimera Napoli. – Tripadvisor

Beautiful caves from a distance. We didn’t venture in as it was just a flying visit and at this time of year the sea was too rough to try anything on the water. The ship wreck on the deep blue sea is a fantastic backdrop to any picture.

Beautiful hidden spot in Paphos area.

We spent a few hours here sun bathing on the rocks and snorkelling around the caves. The sea/waves were a little choppy so ensure you are a competent swimmer. It's a little difficult to get down to (steep and skiddy due to the dry sandy terrain). There are no sun beds / sand, but if you don't mind lying on the flat rocks for a while, it's perfect.

Definitely recommend snorkelling and sea shoes if you have them, as there is lots of coral / sharpish rocks at the cave entrances.

Lovely friendly place with great simple food and cocktails. No where near as expensive or pretentious as some restaurants with views similar to this . Friendly accomodating staff and an amazing place to watch the sunset . Would love to see some cosy sofa type seating to kick back and relax on going forward as the plastic table and chairs are the only down side to this place . Great vibe, great food and nice people 👍

Walk from car parking at bottom near Sea Caves over the top and down to St Georges beach. Fantastic scenery and views.
There are two small beaches to swim from although one is quite difficult to get down to.
I have repeated it many times over the fortnight.

We came across this restaurant while out for a drive. We decided to go in and have lunch. The staff were very welcoming and very friendly. We ordered lunch and a drink and just sat watching the water.the staff were in no way in a rush for us to leave. We will definitely visit here again on our return to the island again Cyprus is a lovely place and will definitely be going back in the future. The people are so friendly make you feel at home.

This is one of those places that we were truly amazed at. Anyone could ask 'what is so special, they're only caves?' well I would reply that it is the rock formation around them that make it more memorable. It's past Coral Bay and before Agios Georgios. We parked the car on the road around halfway of the caves. Most people would probably get out of theirs, take a photo and leave. But you will have missed the majority. Our advice is to walk both ways away from the car. We ambled to see the wreck of Edro III and then slightly further. The return amble gave different views and even more caves. The opposite way from the car revealed even more! We spent a memorable few hours of discovery. Get your shoes on, take a coffee and explore. You won't be disappointed.

There was no bus, so we got a taxi from our hotel to the sea caves. I couldn't be bothered with a full day trip as we just wanted to have a look. The taxi dropped us off at a viewing spot, just along the road from the sea caves cafe (which is lovely by the way) and we took some photos from this elevated view. Then we carried on walking along the road and found a dirt track that you could walk down to get to the water. Got some good photos and the I went snorkeling in the water, right up to the cave entrances. It was brilliant. There aren't loads of deep caves or anything but the water is crystal clear, there are plenty of fish and it looks like an underwater garden! You can walk along the top of the caves and find other paths that lead you down to different areas of the caves (and the ship wreck in the other direction). We had a really enjoyable morning. Tip: go early before all the scuba diving trips arrive (we went at 9am) and apparently sunset is wonderful here. Also, we arranged for our taxi to pick us back up, saving money and time, rather than an organised whole/half day trip.

We hired a car and drove up to Coral Bay then kept going as the caves had been recommended. They're impressive and show the power of nature. It was good to walk along the path and see them. I wouldn't suggest you go out of your way to see them but if you're if you're in the area then definitely go to see them.

The sea caves caught our imagination. To get the most out of it we did quite a bit of research. To start with, we didn't go with any tour operator - since we had a rented car, went our own way. Also it's good to get out early.

After a few attempts, we found a good spot to park the car - it's the next turn off from the road after the one that leads to the usual touristy viewing spot. At the end of the road, there's a small car park. We left the car here, and walked along the cliffs (with the sea on our left side). The walk alone was worth the effort and provided breathtaking views. After quite some time we saw a building site a bit ahead, when we came across a gentle slope leading down to a tiny beach - our own beach (at least for a while). There are a few caves to explore, but if the sea is choppy, it's not easy to go far.

Either way, from every perspective, this was one of the highlights of our holiday!
