Staying locally we wandered down the road in Coral Bay that indicated a museum...paid 1.5 Euros each, (pensioners rate) and walked in to find some ruins indicating that houses had been built on the site, but no information about them. However, we decided to walk...More

This historic site sometimes gets overlooked as not clear what it is, unless you find it in a guide book. I would recommend you go and visit and take a walk around also go underground to visit the museum. Very interesting. There is a entrance...More

Not really a lot to see here, but the headland location is stunning. The interesting underground museum is the high-point. Small but very informative, and weird modernistic design like a grounded flying saucer !! 2.50 Euros to get in (half price for over-65's) and worth...More

The museum at the end of the track puts the ancient history of Cyprus into perspective and has beautiful views out to sea. The ruins of the settlement are obviously limited but again gives you a flavour of how the society was set up.

This place has a little museum, a few ruins and stunning views of both sides of coral bay, worth it.

It's interesting but not particularly inspiring. If you are in the area at 2.50 euros and nothing else to do then do go. But it's not worth going out of your way for it.
