Paphos, located on the island of Cyprus, has idyllic beaches and historic ruins, and is also a popular shopping destination. Below is a short list of insider tips for the best shopping and stores in Paphos.
Moufflon Book Shop
There’s a large English expat population in Cyprus, and this book shop is evidence of it. Moufflon Book Shop has a wide selection of books written in English. Plus, the owner of the store will gladly help you search for hard-to-find titles.
Paphos’ covered market is a popular place to shop on a hot and sunny day because it’s protected from the sun. While most of the goods found in the market are popular with locals, there are also souvenirs. The prices of the souvenirs are fairly comparable to the souvenir shops in town.
Cyprus is known for its delicate and intricate lace patterns, and it’s much cheaper to purchase here than it is in other countries. You can find lace products such as tablecloths relatively cheaply in Paphos, but can find even better prices in stores that are outside of the main tourist areas.
Cyprus is known for two very famous wines: Maratheftiko and a fruitier blend called Mataro. While these wines can be purchased from any supermarket in Cyprus, it’s more of an experience to visit the wineries to see it produced.
