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.
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.
