Holidays in Cyprus

With a rich and captivating history, stunning scenery, winding cobbled streets, and globally renowned cuisine, few can resist Cyprus' allure. You’ll be charmed by Cyprus’s golden beaches, rugged coves, and tranquil pine forests. Head to Larnaca with its array of stunning towns or immerse yourself in Cypriot culture as you wander the cobbled streets of Kyrenia.

Cool off at Limassol's Wet 'n' Wild and Fasouri Watermania water parks. Or dance the night away in Ayia Napa's world-famous clubs, bars, and karaoke spots! Alternatively head to Paphos, the birthplace of the goddess of love, Aphrodite, and also home to the breathtaking Coral Bay nestling amongst lush vineyards and banana plantations.

Where is the best place to stay in?

Protaras is a family favourite with its golden beach, shallow waters and restaurant-lined main strip. Ayia Napa is a popular choice with the younger crowd drawn to the iconic sun-drenched Nissi Beach by day and the vibrant bars, pubs, and nightclubs after dark.
