Cyprus

Overview

The small island of Cyprus, sits in the sun kissed far east of the Mediterranean with Europe on one side and the Middle East on the other. While it’s only 3,500 sq. miles, there’s so much to see and do. So grab a swimsuit, some sunscreen, an appetite and perhaps a guide to Byzantine art!

Cyprus is ringed by some of the Mediterranean’s best beaches. They range from rugged stretches on the Akamas Peninsular, to serene white sand bays at Protaras. One of the most famous areas is the Karpas Peninsula and the appropriately named, Golden Beach (Nangomi Bay). The curving dunes make it is as picturesque as anywhere in the Mediterranean, while the land is a protected a nature reserve so there no risk of over-development.

It’s hard to resist the lure of the beach but history buffs and those keen on the Greek myths will have plenty to interest them too. The town of Paphos has ancient tombs and the impressive Byzantine Art Museum. Don’t miss the pre-Christian city of Salmis, an archeological goldmine home to the ruins of ancient amphitheaters and crumbling mosaics.

Cyprus has some of the finest hotels in the Med including 5-star luxury resorts like the Almyra and Anassa. And it’s no wonder that the island is a favoured destination for both families and couples.
