Country Guides - Cyprus



Cyprus is a pleasantly relaxed island in the southern Mediterranean Sea that enjoys long hot summers and mild winters. The island has had a long and chequered history the evidence of which is seen in the ancient remains scattered around the countryside. Cyprus holidays take you to a beautiful area with mountains and pine clad hills, fertile valleys and charming inland villages, and modern resorts with soft sandy beaches gently lapped by clear, warm waters. It is easy to see why all age groups flock to the island. With a guarantee of sunshine throughout the long summer season, families make the most of the beaches. The larger resorts offer a variety of water sports and also have a great choice of evening venues for those who wish to party through the night.

Accommodation is of a high standard and service is excellent. Restaurants catering for the notoriously conservative British palate, can be found on every corner, but make sure you also enjoy the delights of the island's cuisine.

If you wish to make the most of your trip and really do justice to the island, car hire is recommended. An advantage here is that driving is on the left. There are so many traditional villages to see. A particular favourite is Polis, a half hour journey from Paphos. Be sure to visit the craft and jewellery shop in what was once the old inn. It has remained in the same family for generations and the present owner and her daughters make the items on sale. The beach, a few hundred yards from the village is sparsely populated and offers great bathing.

Many regional airports have flights to Cyprus, and with a journey of a little over four hours, you can soon be relaxing in sunshine. The island has a couple of golf courses which attract visitors out of high season, those wishing to enjoy the sport without fingers numbed by the cold, or without rain dripping down their necks.
