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 they drive on the left, so that part is easy for UK visitors. Trying to work out what drivers are doing is more difficult. You will notice a tendency to drive half on and half off the hard shoulder on motorways and for drivers to weave about all over the place. This is partly because most people seem to drive with a mobile phone permanently locked to their ear. There is a lot of corner cutting, no signalling, traffic light creeping and some red light jumping as well, so be very careful at junctions.

Pharmacy Openings
The nearest pharmacy is located in Timi village, first right just past the airport on the B6. Friendly and helpful service and very well stocked shop.

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.

Bank Hours
Monday: 08:15-13:00 & 15:15-16:45. Tuesday – Friday: 08:15-13:00. In tourist areas some banks will operate an afternoon service and all will have 24hr ATM’s.  There is a 24hr JCC ATM located in the village square at Aphrodite Hills Resort too.

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.
