Cyprus, the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, is often though of as a laid-back, beach-time destination. It offers the perfect place for relaxation, for couples wanting to get away from it all…. But, there is so much more to this beautiful island. Thanks to the wide range of accommodation available, it is also the ideal location for families looking to spend quality time together.
Resorts, such as Paphos and Ayia Napa, offer beautiful beaches and, along with a wonderful mild climate, every conceivable water sport can be enjoyed (from scuba diving to kite boarding!). All this activity certainly builds an appetite so dip into the Cypriot cuisine and sample the delicious kebabs, hummus and haloumi. Finish off with a sticky baklava or creamy rice pudding to really tickle those taste buds.
Take a trip out and discover one of Cyprus’ fascinating historical sites, ruins and museums… Cyprus has a tumultuous past, and an insight into this island’s complex history, with its Roman mosaics, castles, monasteries and tombs will leave you enthralled.
Fancy a day away from the beach? Why not explore inland Cyprus with it’s fresh, pine-clad mountains and dense vineyards? Breathe in the clean, fresh air and maybe try your hand at a bit of wine tasting and even some winter skiing (but maybe not at the same time!)
