Advantages Very friendly, sunbeds reasonably prices, lovely weather year round
Disadvantages Price and beach could be cleaner
I have holidayed in many places both with and without children and after spending the last three summer's on Coral Bay Beach I thought I would share my experience.Accessibility - Coral Bay is easily accessible by bus from Paphos areas and is 15 minute car or taxi ride from Paphos Harbour.
There is plenty of parking and we managed to park practically on the beach every day, we arrived about 10am and holidayed mid September.Value for money - I found the food and drink at the beach bar expensive although the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. One portion of chips was 3 euro, a can of drink 2euro 50, a pizza 6 euro. We took some food and drink to the beach with us every day. We paid for sun beds, they were 2euro 50 for each bed and the same for an umbrella so it cost us 7euro 50 a day for two beds and an umbrella, our children are 2 and 4 so they shared ours :-)
Sightseeing - There is not an awful lot to see in the area except the beach but that's what we went for so we were happy with this.Cleanliness - this was the only minus point for us, there were a lot of cigarette ends and the beach didn't appear to be ploughed regularly like the one we often visit in Spain, it was clean apart from this but they could do better on this point, supplying ashtrays might also help cut this down.
Shopping and Nightlife. The shops in Coral Bay itself are basic but adequate, the supermarkets aren't cheap but aren't grossly expensive either. We ate in Coral Bay several nights and my favourite restaurant was an Italian I believe it was called Palm Bay or similar the Bruschetta was to die for! It is exactly what you would expect from a holiday resort type place, I don't find Cyprus cheap in general at all and visit there as my parents live in Pathos.
