Holidays in Cyprus
As the 3rd largest island in the Mediterranean, Cyprus has an amazing selection of holiday themes on offer. With Winter Skiing in Troodos, Water Sports, Golf, Agrotourism, and Party Nights in Ayia Napa, Cyprus has something for everyone beneath its clear blue Mediterranean skies.
Nowadays, with destinations such as Kyrenia, and Famagusta in the north of Cyprus becoming more popular, tourists can now experience a totally different holiday on this magical island.
With a wealth of beaches to choose from, you’re bound to find one that suits your taste. From the quiet backwaters of the western peninsula, to the lively resorts in the east, the island of Cyprus has something for everyone.
Discovering areas of Cyprus that are off the beaten track, can be a rewarding experience for those who seeking out the "other side" of Cypriot life.
With the un-spoilt beaches in the north of the island, towns like Kaplica, famous for its hot water springs, are attracting travellers wanting a relaxed holiday in Cyprus with a difference.
Cyprus has a breathtaking natural beauty and a colourful history, which dates back thousands of years. With a reputation for hospitality, good food, and exceptional weather, Cyprus welcomes nearly 2.5 million visitors every year.
Testaments to Cyprus’ turbulent history can be found all over the island. Long coveted by foreign powers due to its strategic position at the crossroad between three continents, the island is like a huge open air museum where you can see evidence of the passage of the various conquerors and rulers that controlled it through the ages.
The “Tombs of the Kings” are situated close to the sea in the north western necropolis of Pafos (Paphos). They owe their name to their size and splendour – some probably belonged to the Pafian aristocracy, and not because royalty was buried there. They are rock cut and date to the Hellenistic and early Roman periods. Some of them imitate the houses of the living, with the rooms (here the burial chambers) opening onto a peristyle atrium.
Driving in Cyprus can be enjoyable and in some cases essential as regular transport services to remote areas of interest are not always available. The minimum driving age is 18.
