6 reasons to holiday to Cyprus

Cyprus is a beautiful holiday destination, offering an exciting plethora of attractions, historical monuments and stunning beaches. The island is perfect for every type of holidaymaker; from families with young children to couples looking for an unforgettable intimate break.


We absolutely love what the island has to offer – check out our six key reasons why Cyprus should be your next holiday destination!

1. Aphrodite’s rock

The famous and sacred sea stack of Aphrodite’s Rock, also known as Petra tou Romiou, is a must-see on your holiday here. Located in the city of Paphos, on the southwest coast of the Mediterranean island, the renowned landmark is a brilliant sight to see, especially at sunset.

2. Bustling capital

Cyprus’ capital and largest city, Nicosia, offers an array of great cafes, restaurants and bars as well as a cultural scene enticing to history-lovers. The city, also known as Lefkosia, is home to the renowned Cyprus Museum, the island’s oldest and largest archeological museum containing a brilliant collection of artefacts and antiquities. The museum is certainly worth a visit on your Cyprus getaway, as is a wander around Nicosia itself.

3. Glorious beaches

The island of Cyprus is surrounded by low cliffs and a mix of spectacular golden and white sandy beaches for holidaymakers to enjoy. From busy and lively beaches, such as the family-friendly Coral Bay north of Paphos, to quieter, more secluded beaches, such as Armyropigado Beach, in the area of Protaras; the island truly caters for everyone. Cyprus also boasts a variety of blue flag awarded beaches, recognizing its water cleanliness and overall environmental quality.

4.Steeped in history

Cyprus is an island steeped in history, offering countless ancient ruins, historical monuments and treasure-filled museums for visitors to explore. The city of Paphos has a history dating back to more than 8,000 years and offers some brilliant sights for holidaymakers today, including the Medieval Castle of Paphos and the Tombs of the Kings, an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The archeological site of Kourion on the southwest coast of Cyprus is also a must-visit, which includes the remains of a third century AD Roman market, ancient theatre and many other Roman and Byzantine remains.

5. Kyrenia harbour

The picturesque port of Kyrenia (as known as Girne), on the northern coast of Cyprus, is a beautiful area to visit on the island. Offering its historic and charming harbour and magnificent Kyrenia Castle, you can spend a day exploring the town, looking over breath-taking mountainous scenery and enjoying a taste of Cypriot culture.

6. Gorgeous weather

Cyprus offers a beautifully warm climate throughout most of the year, with high temperatures soaring to 30*C in the summer months with up to 14 hours of sun each day. The island remains mild even in the winter months with an average temperature of 18*C. With its array of fantastic attractions inside and out, a holiday to Cyprus promises to please all, no matter what time of year!
