CYPRUS

When it comes to beach holidays and plentiful sunshine, Cyprus just keeps on giving.
Agia Napa, Protaras and Larnaca are the top three beach resorts and offer splendid beaches, unrivalled sunshine, and lively night life.

Looking for something other than the traditional three Ss of sun, sand and sea?
Cyprus won't let you down.

This island is bursting with culture; Roman ruins, local churches featuring priceless Byzantine art, prehistoric settlements and archaeological museums.

Venture inland for walking and cycling routes, ranging from easy 3 Kilometre hikes to 55 Kilometre cycle tracks. Look out for the Vouni Panagias - Abelitis ( a wine route in the Paphos District), combining the best in scenery with delicious regional wines.
