Peyia is the most popular Cyprus village and is situated 5km north-east of Coral Bay. It has a mixture of local and ex-pat residents and is a popular summer and holiday destination for hundreds of European citizens. Due to it's elevated position there are spectacular views down to the coastline and to Coral Bay. The village has many tavernas and restaurants and is considered as an ideal place to live for both residents and visitors. The original Peyia village was a small, stone built community of farmers whose crops were mainly bananas and oranges. Over the last 20 years Peyia has grown in strength to be the Municipality of Peyia, governing the area from Akamas Peninsular in the west to the edges of Paphos on the east side. Paphos is only 15 minutes by road from Peyia village and Coral Bay resort is only a few minutes drive.
