We walked across Coral Bay beach & up the steps to get to this piece of headland that once housed a busy bronze age settlement . On the way we noticed the freshwater springs along the beach which first enticed the settlers to live here...More

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

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 site is easy enough to find, and has a nice setting on a rocky headland. While the cyclopean walling across the neck of the headland is very impressive, the remains of the structures are not.It is very difficult to make out individual structures from...More

Well signposted from the main road and accessed down a path, this is a large site but not with a huge amount to see being Bronze Age. There are outlines of buildings and random large stone, shards of pottery and a modernistic museum with excellent...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.
