Whether you're looking for a holiday with sun, fun and an energetic nightlife, a relaxing family holiday or a mountain getaway Cyprus ticks all the boxes. Located in the Eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus has a wonderful mix of culture derived from it’s Greek, Turkish and African heritage.

Many of the coastal regions of Cyprus such have been developed extensively for the tourist industry and are bustling with life. The notorious Aya Napa resort is the ideal getaway for the younger generation looking for a week of sunbathing and nightclubbing, but if you're looking for somewhere quieter there are plenty of quieter options inland. During the hot summers a trip into the cooler Troodos mountains enables you to get away from the scorching lowland temperatures. The area has pine forests, ancient frescoed churches and monasteries and a wealth of wildlife.

Inland there are small wine growing villages nestled in the mountains where you can stop for a leisurely lunch at a local taverna and sample traditional Cyprus cuisine and locally produced wines. The mountain area is also home to a burgeoning ski resort in the winter months.

One of the most unspoilt parts of the island is the Akamas peninsula which is a UNESCO site. Here you can enjoy walking or cycling, or you can relax on the lovely tranquil and secluded beaches on this side of the island. The nearby Lara Bay is a turtle breeding ground and a sanctuary for endangered species.

Varosha Famagusta

Famagusta - a Resort Frozen in Time

A day trip to the ghost town of Famagusta in Turkish ruled Northern Cyprus will transport you back to the mid-1970's.

Formerly a thriving holiday resort, the Varosha district of Famagusta has been frozen in time since its invasion by Turkey in 1974. The cars and buildings remain untouched since the invasion. The sea front area of Varosha is still a "no go zone" and is closely guarded by the Turkish military.

Trips to Famagusta (and other day trips around Cyprus are available from the Red Bus Company. The Red Bus Famagusta tour takes you to the beach next to the sealed off area of Varosha. Note that photographs of the abandoned town are forbidden (but there are plenty on the internet).

Local Drink

Apart from the local wines which are produced in vineyards on the higher ground, try one of the local Cypriot brandies after a meal.

Must visit

Church of Agios Lazarus in Larnaca - a wonderful example of Byzantine architecture. For those staying on the west of the island the Ayia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa at Paphos was built around 1500AD and is well worth the short walk from the seafront.
