With the lure of sun-kissed beaches, golden sands and top luxury resorts and spas, Cyprus holidays have long been attracting thousands of UK holidaymakers in search of sunshine and culture. With its picturesque villages, delicious traditional cuisine and exceptional historical riches, this exceptional little island is big on character with a unique, seductive personality that lures and enchants. From indulging family holidays to pampering spa breaks and romantic getaways, Cyprus can tickle every fancy.
With no fewer than five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Cyprus is home to a wealth of ancient Greek architecture and archeologically important ruins. It boasts an average of 340 days of sunshine a year, so if you do go exploring you are almost guaranteed to find beautiful weather.
With very close ties to Greece and the UK, Cyprus still manages to retain its own character and charm. With a mixture of traditional and modern hotels coupled with vibrant nightlife, and some of the Mediterranean's best beaches, it's easy to see why everyone wants their own little piece of the island.
Give one of our travel advisers a call to make sure you get the right hotel for you, either as close as you want to be to the central party areas, or as far away from them as possible. Perhaps try a little of both with a multi-centre experience.
Lazy days and dancing the night away
Cyprus is famed for its beautiful variety of beaches. Whether you prefer endless stretches of white sand or secluded coves, you'll find the right beach to suit you on the island. In the evenings, enjoy some fresh seafood in one of the country's many excellent restaurants.
When night falls, get your dancing shoes on and let your hair down in one of Ayia Napa's legendary clubs. Or, if you prefer, dance barefoot on the sand at Guaba. Cyprus is the perfect blend of old and new for couples looking for a wild (or laidback) holiday adventure. It can be whatever you want it to be.
Discover the other side of Cyprus
With mountainous vistas, colourful rural villas and glorious panoramic sea views, Cyprus is a captivating island. Luxurious accommodation, stylish eco-lodges and picturesque coastal villages create an idyllic backdrop for a relaxing stretch of time away from the hustle and bustle of your daily life.
However, it's only when you get off the beaten track that you discover the real Cyprus. The islands' many Byzantine churches and the ancient sites at Kourion and Salamis offer an insight into the island's history-rich past. There are also some great opportunities for adventure in the Troodos mountains, where you can either hike or cycle through the trail, making it a great pace for a family holiday.
Cyprus is an island of contrast where all inclusive resorts sit alongside ancient Greek monuments and ruins. To experience it all on the same trip, ask our travel advisers about building your very own Cyprus adventure.
