Cyprus

Cyprus is a perennial Mediterranean favourite thanks to its versatility and prevalent amenities. Beach lovers can head to the clubbing capital of Ayia Napa or take in the family-friendly resort of Proteras to enjoy soft sand, refreshing waters and year-round sunshine. Also in the Larnaca area is Nissi Beach, whose water park and attractive coastline have made it into a firm favourite for holidaymakers. In the west, Paphos contains a number of family-friendly beaches and a charming marina area. Paphos also doubles as the perfect base from which to explore the historic Tombs of the Kings. Coral Bay near Limassol is another favourite for beach-goers, whilst Latchi, Polis and Amathus Bay offer more tranquil seaside experiences. Away from the coast, the rugged interior of the island is home to some stunning scenery, with whitewashed houses in picturesque villages providing a glimpse of authentic Cypriot life.
