Set Your Sights on Cyprus

Surrounded by sea, kissed by the sun, and blessed with plenty of attractions to suit just about every taste, it’s surprising that Cyprus isn’t more popular than it is. Of course, that in itself is another selling point. Many regulars come to this idyllic Mediterranean getaway year after year to escape the crowds that hound the more popular European vacation spots. With oodles of cheap flights to Cyprus from Europe, and attractions like the following, it’s easy to see why they keep coming back.

World Class Beaches

With sweeping white sand and a shortage of crowds – but no shortage of amenities — the beaches of Cyprus are as plentiful as they are varied. Paphos Municipal Beach is small but easy to reach. The beach at Coral Bay is more secluded, but stunning and well worth the effort to get to. Vardas Beach is the place to go if you’re after good food and music. And St. George Beach offers up just about everything the family will need in a compact, easily accessible package.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Paphos Castle

For such a wee little island, Cyprus packs quite a punch in the history department. The island is home to three uniquely different UNESCO World Heritage sites. Head for the hills, or more specifically, to the Troodos mountains to take in the ornately decorated Byzantine Painted Churches. Then take in the Neolithic settlement of Choirokoitia and the ancient city of Paphos to get your fill of fortresses, ruins, tombs and plenty more of all that is ancient.

Fasauri Watermania

If lying on the one of the many perfect beaches Cyprus has to offer gets to be too tiresome, head over to Fasauri Watermania to get some real action. With ride names like “Kamikaze Slide” and “Tarzan Swing” the largest waterpark in Cyprus offers plenty of fun for all ages. It’s even got the largest wave pool in all of Europe.
