The Headland at Paphos and Archaeological Park (which is now fenced off and charges apply) is a fantastic area for birds including European Golden-Plover, Whimbrel, Common Kingfisher, Corn Bunting, Zitting Cisticola, Eurasian Skylark, Sardinian Warbler, Black Redstart, Bluethroat, Wood Lark, Spanish Sparrow, Yellow-browed Warbler, Eurasian 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.
