Kissonerga is a very popular place for both locals and British expats, partly for its convenience of it being so near to the beach while still enjoying all the benefits of being nearby town. The drive to the town center is conveniently just under 10 minutes, while Peyia village is also 10 minutes away in the other direction.
Kissonerga is about eight kilometres down the main road from Paphos towards Coral Bay. Along the coast road are several hotels, mini-markets, numerous bars and taverns, as well as small complexes of shops mainly catering for tourists.
Away from the coast road, Kissonerga village has a main street where there are restaurants, several mini-markets, two banks, two coffee shops (one of which also operates as a sub post office), a bookshop, florist, chemist and hairdressers. There is also an internet café near the playground.
