A fine visitor's centre, but the site is very difficult to figure out.

Very easy to find. Well signposted. The actual site is ok. Difficult to work out. The museum was disappointing. A lot of reading in frames around the wall with references to the cases "behind you". These cases were not there. Instead there were 3 indentations...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 has beautiful views and the Dome museum is good for singing in, good acoustics. Nothing to see inside just cards on the wall telling you about the bronze age. No information offered about the place and we wouldn't go again unless more information was...More

A small bronze age settlement on an isolated headland hidden amongst the coastal hotels. Well worth finding if you seek something different to the remainder of Coral Bay. The modern underground museum is an architectural masterpiece and the display panels are highly informative. It is...More

Read it was open but it was closed. The vosoy cyprus website to be fair says Mon-Fri - so I should have looked up.

We left visiting until the last couple of days before we went home. These happened to be a Saturday and Sunday. We had checked the sign on the gate beforehand and it clearly stated that the site was open seven days a week. It wasn't....More
