Now in its fourth season, Sea You beach bar in Paphos has established itself as one of the most popular beachside venues in the district and will still be open for several weeks yet.
Set at Potima Bay in Kissonerga, it has a wonderful view of spectacular sunsets and faces a wide expanse of the sea, and although it is often too rough for swimming, it’s always worth watchin the sun set over it.
Set off the main coastal road in Kissonerga, the bar has an adjacent, large dirt car park. It is also accessible by bus, and is on the 615 route which connects Paphos harbour and Coral Bay.
Open from 10am, the bar provides a number of tasty dishes including meat and fish options, as well as salads and platters.
Plenty of shade is provided by a number of palm trees and umbrellas and strategically placed shades cover the rest. A cooling sea breeze is a welcome relief from the heat.
Wooden furniture and director style chairs and sofas are comfortable, in some areas stone slabs have been laid and wooden decking provides a pathway down onto the beach where sunbeds and umbrellas are also available for hire.
The atmosphere here is laid back and relaxed, the concept simple, and the food reasonably priced for the location.
Both soft drinks and alcoholic drinks are on offer, and both draft and bottled beer are served and cost between €2 and €3. Cyprus coffee is €2 and frappe is €3.
Cocktails are popular, and this is a fantastic places to savour a sundowner. This summer, the flavoured Mojito is taking the top spot, and options including raspberry, mango and strawberry, they are priced at €7.
The space feels comfortable, even when busy, and is frequented by local, foreign residents and holidaymakers.
Live music, which is not intrusive, is offered twice a week: on Fridays a saxophone player enhances the atmosphere, and on Sundays, a violinist does the same.
There is still time to visit this season, as the bar intends to remain open until the end of November and is highly recommended.
