Chasing Sunsets in Paphos

Hero image

When the sun sets beyond the sea near Eauzone, Almyra’s poolside lounge and restaurant, few guests can resist the urge to snap a picture or pose for a selfie. Looking across the infinity pool toward the sea, you sense the two bodies of water merge as the sunlight filters through the leaves of four palm trees. Though Eauzone is a favoured perch for watching the sunset, Almyra offers other equally alluring places to take in the view. Guests staying in a Kyma suite can gaze across the hotel’s gardens to Pafos harbour from their private rooftop lounge. The pergola at al fresco restaurant Notios casts delicate shadows in the waning light. Stand above seaside taverna Ouzeri, and you can see its white trellis as well as a breakwater and the silhouette of the Pafos castle. Of course, you can range farther afield, following the harbourside promenade to the castle (where you can take in the panoramic view from its roof) and then taking the seaside trail to the lighthouse. At Almyra, we have seen so many people using a camera to capture the beautiful colours of the sky, sea, and harbour that we decided to hold a sunset photography contest. The winning image, taken by Leondios Tselepos, shows the glow of the setting sun behind the façade of the castle; in the foreground, a rough sea washes over a pier and throws its foam skyward. Why not take a shot of your own? The spectacle happens every night right here.
