Local Information

Drinking water
The water in Cyprus is perfectly safe to drink. You will have a special drinking water tap on or near the kitchen sink tap, this water comes direct from the water mains.

Water conservation
Please conserve water. We don’t get cut off very frequently but it may happen. If you have no water try using the drinking water tap. If no water comes out, the main supply has been cut. We do not generally get a warning but if it goes off it will be for a few hours at a time.

Driving
You will already be aware that in Cyprus we drive on the left, which is an easy transition for UK visitors. Do rembmer however that every country has its own ‘style’ of driving (and Cyprus is no exception), so be cautious and drive safely in this new environment. Always wear your seatbelt, keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front in case of sudden turning and/or stopping, and be cautious of selective indicating. The maximum speed limit on motorways is 100kmph and all hire cars have red number plates.

Pharmacy Openings
The nearest pharmacy is right here on the resort, in the village square. Friendly and helpful service and very well stocked shop. Opening hours: Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri: 7am – 5pm. Weds & Sat: 7am – 2pm. Closed Sundays.

Petrol Stations
Most filling stations still have attendant service during opening hours. The nearest is on the B6 towards the airport on the right. Others are at: Pissouri, on the B6, and in Geroskipou there are 3 petrol stations along the B6 on the way to Paphos. When the petrol stations are closed, a machine dispenses for either cash or credit cards. Be sure to read the instructions.

Taxis
There are lots of reliable taxis around but not all of them know their way around the resort. We recommend Palepaphos taxis as they know the resort well. Call Palepaphos.
