This relatively small island still packs a punch when it comes to amazingly diverse landscapes. From bustling cities, cosmopolitan seaside resorts, quiet coves and mountain villages - It’s pretty easy to get around, so whether you book an excursion, jump in a local taxi or bus, or hire a car – there’s no need to stop in one place.   It’s great value when you get there too, so get out and about in this island paradise and see more on your Cyprus holiday.

Beach lovers, romantics, families, history buffs, hikers, bikers, birdwatchers, golfers and divers – holiday to Cyprus and you’ll find an amazing choice of options to suit all the family.  A destination like no other and as the birthplace of the Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love - what better place to get married? The ideal setting for any wedding, you can choose to have your special day on a yacht, within a museum, among beautiful grounds or on a sun-kissed paradise beach.

You’ll find the cuisine caters for all tastes and pockets. If you enjoy a meze and freshly caught and cooked seafood, you’re in for a treat, but equally the island has a wide choice of international and European restaurants serving all your favourites.

Party all night in Ayia Napa, explore the pine-covered slopes of the Troodos Mountains and step out in quaint villages.  Cyprus is more than just a fly-and-flop destination.  Sublime beaches, dreamy coves and virtually guaranteed year round sunshine without the need to travel to far-flung destinations.

Expect long and dry summers and milder winters with some rain on holidays to Cyprus. A year round destination, generally you can expect good weather in Cyprus due to its location. Cyprus is in the east of the Mediterranean, resulting in a typical sunny Mediterranean climate; however, its proximity to southwest Asia makes it one of the hottest parts of the Mediterranean, especially in mid-summer.
