Cyprus

There’s a sense of romance to the island country of Cyprus which has as much to do with its impressive history as the spectacular scenery. You’ll find sleepy villages and ancient monuments, flawless beaches and soaring mountains, as well as historic sights and secret coves to enjoy with your loved ones.

Cyprus offers much more than romance though, with its lively parties and a colourful nightlife to suit the club goers, and plenty of family-friendly activities and days out for mums and dads to enjoy with the kids. There is also a record-breaking number of Blue Flag beaches to help you soak up the near-guaranteed sunshine, and the exciting, flavour-packed cuisine will please foodies everywhere.

Great for…

Food lovers – With influences from both Greece and Turkey, Cypriot cuisine is tough to beat.

Families – There are plenty of child-friendly activities to enjoy throughout Cyprus, including horse-riding, kinds’ clubs, and of course the incredible beaches.

Clubbers – Ayia Napa is seen to be one of the most legendary party spots in Europe.

Paphos

Paphos is a traditional harbour town on the west coast of the island where you’ll find a charming escape from the livelier areas, offering more low-key live entertainment and a selection of delicious local delicacies to savour. There’s culture around every corner and a calming atmosphere throughout.

Paphos was thought to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, so why not visit her temple remains before exploring the rocky coast’s secret coves for a day of relaxing sightseeing?

Larnaca

Larnaca is perfect for families looking for golden beaches to relax on, where the littl’uns can play and paddle, and older children and parents can take a plunge into some of the best diving sites in Cyprus.

Cyprus’s choice of cuisines is on show here in Larnaca, with a sensational range of Cypriot dishes, locally-sourced seafood, and tastes from other cultures across the world.

Nissi Beach

This resort is one of the most tranquil yet popular across the island, and while the white-sand beach tends to get busy during the day you’ll find Nissi Beach a place to ease tension and forget your stress. With Ayia Napa just a stone’s throw away, people often use Nissi Beach as a base to relax in during daylight hours, before partying in the garage music capital of the world at night.

Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa is as beautiful as it is wild, and as pulse-poundingly exciting as other areas of the resort are tranquil. You’ll discover your new favourite beaches in Ayia Napa, and a waterpark close-by that needs to be enjoyed at least once during your Cyprus holiday. Whether you’re looking for soothing beach bars or adrenaline-fuelled club nights, Ayia Napa offers all the right experiences.

Limassol

As Cyprus’s largest resort, Limassol is a cultural hotspot and a place with almost endless things to do. Everything here tends to be bigger and more sophisticated than other resorts in Cyprus: there are designer shops, crystal waters, golden beaches, wine festivals, atmospheric ruins, and a seafront lined by attractive palm trees. The old town is a hub of history and culture which houses many of its shops, cafes and restaurants in 19th century buildings.

Coral Bay

Coral Bay is a fun town that rests by the sea, bordered by vineyards and banana plantations, and home to a soothing cliff-edged white-sand beach. This is a good, friendly place to relax in, as well as somewhere from which to visit the ruins of Paphos just a 15-minute drive away. The Coral Bay shore is particularly safe for families with children due to how shallow its gorgeous clear waters are.

Must visit – Cyprus is made up of “must dos”, but some of the most impressive are the scenic views and the historical sites like the House of Dionysus and the glorious Fig Tree Bay. Make sure you sample a meze meal, take a splash in WaterWorld Water Park, and don’t miss the Cyprus Wine Museum if you’re a vineyard fan.


Family fun – Dinosaur Park is perfect for children who will enjoy face-to-face encounters with these ancient lizards, Looney Land is an indoor and outdoor playground for children, and of course the Blue Flag beaches are perfect for the whole family to relish.


Natural attractions – Cyprus is home to some very attractive mountainsides, while its beaches and coves are a glittering contrast to the island’s more rugged scenery.

Lara Bay also has a Turtle Conservation Station where you can meet these cute shelled creatures.


Food and drink – Cypriot cuisine takes influence from both Greece and Turkey, so expect hearty and liberally seasoned dishes. Souvlaki is an irresistible pork kebab, and don’t forget to try the locally-made Halloumi cheese, which tastes better than most examples you’ll find back home. Meze is a kind of Greek tapas, and Cyprus offers some of the best examples of the dish.


Night life – The nightlife in Cyprus is deservedly famous, particularly when it comes to the wild nights you can experience in Ayia Napa. There’s more to the Cyprus night life than euphoric abandon though: you can find seaside tavernas, elegant bars, live music venues, art cafes, and LGBT-friendly clubs throughout.
