For such a small island, Cyprus certainly has a lot of personality. With many fabulous resorts and outstanding areas of natural beauty to discover, it’s no wonder that many UK holidaymakers to Cyprus decide to make their permanent homes here, especially as your time on Cyprus can be as relaxed or revved-up as you’d like.
For those craving the quiet life on Cyprus, holidays to the beautiful region of Paphos make a fantastic choice. Rich with Greek and Roman history, you’ll never be far from intriguing archaeological sites such as Kourion, an excavated city kingdom, and the 13th century Kolossi Castle, where you’ll be whisked away to the noble era of Cyprus to provide the much-needed sense of escapism that we all crave from a holiday.
In Paphos you’ll also have easy access to the Troödos Mountains, the largest range in Cyprus that is ever-popular with hikers and climbers. Even if you don’t wish to take on its highest peak, Mount Olympus, the Troödos Mountains are where you’re guaranteed almost total isolation – and plenty of fantastic photo opportunities of the breath-taking Cyprus landscape.
However if you’re more of a fan of city life, the region of Larnaca has all of the exciting nightlife, world-class shopping and family friendly resorts that you need to make your trip to Cyprus one to remember. Spend your days strolling around the bustling markets of Zinonos Kitios before grabbing a bite to eat around Laiki Yeitonia, a popular promenade that becomes only livelier once the sun goes down.
In fact no matter what type of holiday you wish to enjoy in Cyprus, you’ll always be within an easy distance from a cool town, quiet village or a secluded beach that will have you planning your next visit to this delightful island – before you’ve even left!
