Coral Bay is a popular tourist resort in the Peyia municipality 6 km North of the city of Paphos.

The coast to the west and to the east of coral bay is characterized by rocky headlands and sea caves, Coral Bay itself is a 600m crescent of soft white sand, enclosed by a pair of limestone headlands.[1]

Coral Bay beach carries an EU Blue Flag certification which means that it adheres to all standards, rules and regulations required by the relevant committee of the European Union. This makes Coral Bay a cosmopolitan beach visited by tourists and locals alike.

The broader area of Coral Bay encloses another beach called Potima Bay. It is situated about 1.5 km / 1 mile away bordering the boundaries of Kissonerga village. This beach is a long pebbly beach with a deep blue sea that offers relaxation, tranquillity and privacy and attracts swimmers that are seeking just that. Apart from Blue Coral Beach Villas, an exclusive luxury holiday villa complex, there are no other buildings on this beach.

A regular bus service runs between Coral Bay and Potima Bay every 15 minutes and the journey time is 3 minutes.
