There are many islands in the sun, but few, if any, have Cyprus’ incredible bounty of beautiful and varied geography interlaced with ancient cultural and architectural riches.

"Where do we start? A touch of Miami-chic in the Med, with glistening waterfronts and bars throbbing with all the right people, or jaw-dropping history at the Neolithic village of Khirokitia."

For those who find some parts of Cyprus’s traditional tourist centres like Agia Napa and Limassol over-developed and brash, the rest of the island will come as a revelation: rugged coastlines with beautiful bays; miles of unspoilt golden beaches; tiny picturesque villages and dramatic pine-clad mountains.

You’ll find traces of history and lost civilisations everywhere too, from hilltop medieval castles and ancient temples, to Byzantine churches and astonishingly well-preserved Roman cities and amphitheatres, all wrapped up in a gorgeous Middle Eastern climate of very hot summers and mild winters, making this a great year-round destination.

Creating special moments

  1. Ancient Theatrics

    Ancient Theatrics

    The huge, well-preserved Greco-Roman amphitheatre perched high over the beautiful southern coastline at Kourion has the most dramatic backdrop of any theatre in the world, and is still used as a venue for music and plays.

  2. Charismatic Coastline

    Charismatic Coastline

    The untouched Akamas Peninsula, named after an Athean warrior and son of Theseus, is a paradise for lovers of flora and fauna; in the spring, wander its nature trails among many species of wild flowers, and swim in its perfect little bay, the Blue Lagoon.

  3. Peak Pursuits

    Peak Pursuits

    The pine-covered slopes of the Troodos Mountains in the centre of the island, are dotted with Byzantine churches and monasteries; on the way back down, the picturesque village of Omodos makes a perfect spot for lunch.
