Holidays to Cyprus blend ancient history, green pine-clad mountains and sandy beaches. Whether you’re on a solo break, a romantic getaway or a family holiday, this Mediterranean setting is a great choice.

Where is Cyprus?

The independent state of Cyprus is located in the Mediterranean Sea, just south of the Anatolian Peninsula.

Crowd-pleasing island

Cyprus offers 64 Blue Flag beaches, stunning scenery and ancient ruins. Add to that a plethora of great hotels, bars and restaurants, and it’s no wonder holidays to Cyprus have a something-for-everyone reputation.

East and West

Head to the east coast and you’ll find Protaras – a family-friendly resort with an expanse of golden sand. Partygoers love Ayia Napa, which combines a beautiful beach with a legendary party town packed with pubs, clubs and bars. Just a couple of kilometres away is chilled-out Nissi beach with its spectacular white sands.

The big draw on the west coast is the ancient town of Paphos. You can pay a visit to the Greek Goddess Aphrodite at the rock where she is said to have been born, or visit the Tombs of the Kings. In the south-west corner of the island, the quaint old town of Limassol has a beautiful beach and a fun waterpark close at hand.
