The Headland at Paphos and Archaeological Park (which is now fenced off and charges apply) is a fantastic area for birds including European Golden-PloverWhimbrelCommon KingfisherCorn BuntingZitting CisticolaSkylarkSardinian WarblerBlack RedstartBluethroatWood LarkSpanish SparrowYellow-browed WarblerEurasian Kestrel to mention a few.



Parking at the Archaeological Park car park or Paphos Harbour, if you plan on just walking the coast down to lets say Lighthouse beach and back, thats fine. For a circular route enter the Archaeological Park (fee required) then walk through the park returning back on the headland boardwalk.
