Introduction to Cyprus
Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean. The scenic and sparkling coastline stretches for 500 miles, ranging from rugged and rocky beaches to golden sands. With family friendly resorts, [more] picturesque fishing villages, ancient monuments and stunning mountain views, Cyprus truly has something for everyone. Take a walk in the Troodos Mountains, enjoy a fun-filled day out at the Aphrodite Water Park, browse colourful markets or enjoy seafood ‘meze’ at a traditional taverna - the choice is yours! So much of history remains here too, with rich archaeological sites. There's an array of fabulous places to visit including the House of Dionysos, the Temple of Aphrodite and the Tomb of the Kings. In the Paphos Region, on the West Coast the diverse resorts here range from the lively Coral Bay to more traditional areas of Polis and Latchi. And then there's Protaras in the eastern Larnaca region, which is a firm family favourite. [less] Download Cyprus resort guide(pdf)

Cyprus
Cyprus has emerged from its turbulent history with its own unique culture and personality – there is just nowhere like it! It has always been a melting pot, both in the ancient world and more recently – once ruled by Greek, Assyrian, Egyptian, Persian and Hellenistic Ptolemaic regimes, and fought over and influenced by Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Perhaps that’s why its people are so relaxed and welcoming to strangers – they’ve seen it all before! So much of the history remains here, with rich archaeological finds from those previous civilisations. There have been times when you could hardly move in Cyprus without tripping over the many archaeologists, historians and other academics working here! Now those lost worlds have been uncovered and are here for you to visit, with fabulous, romantic names such as the House of Dionysos, the Temple of Aphrodite and the Tomb of the Kings

Cyprus Resorts

You can choose any one of our many villas in Cyprus and enjoy a holiday you will dream about for many years to come. We know how to make you happy! If you just want to relax under a brilliant blue sky, you’ve come to the right place – the beaches are spectacular, and your own private pool at the villa is perfect for soaking up the rays. Or you might opt for a really active holiday, trying some of the many water sports on offer, or exploring the island. You could head up into the Troodos Mountains, or take a jeep safari on the dirt tracks of the Akamas National Park through a timeless world of carob and olive trees, pine and juniper forests, streams and waterfalls, crags and peaks, deserted coves and hidden beaches.

In the evening you can head for the harbour at Latchi for a great choice of top notch restaurants around the picturesque harbour, including traditional Cypriot food and contemporary international cuisine. This is seafood heaven and we highly recommend the fish meze in this most romantic of settings. If you want to liven things up, the busy main strip of Coral Bay is well supplied with clubs, bars and rustic tavernas serving a Cypriot meze that will challenge the capacity of even the hungriest beach bum or babe! When you need a break from taramasalata and kleftiko, you can try one of the Japanese, Chinese or Italian restaurants. There are pubs if you are feeling homesick, and even a disco open till very late – or do we mean early?

Chloraka
2 Villas
Chloraka is ideally located close to all the sights of Paphos as well as the beautiful beach at Coral Bay. At the shoreline Chloraka is a relaxed, family-oriented seaside resort, and if you head inland and upwards you will find a traditional Cypriot village.
Coral Bay
52 Villas
Coral Bay is a popular seaside resort on the coastal road west of Paphos. The main attraction is the 660 yards of sandy Coral Bay beach, which carries an EU Blue Flag certification and is the most popular in the area. The warm shallow water is perfect for paddling, but this is also a big centre for water sports. The busy main strip of Coral Bay is well supplied with clubs, bars, rustic tavernas and international restaurants (and even more choice in nearby Paphos.)
Latchi
12 Villas
Surrounded by undulating green hills, the mile-long sand and pebble beach at Latchi is rarely overcrowded, and has all the facilities you need, including clean, clear, warm shallow water ideal for children to play and paddle. This Blue Flag beach is largely unspoilt with a quiet natural beauty and tranquillity, but there are plenty of sunloungers and umbrellas for hire to add the comfort factor.
Peyia
17 Villas
The name Peyia refers to quite a large area, and also to the rapidly growing village of that name which sits on the hillside with magnificent views across the bay. The village has supermarkets, shops, a town hall and a choice of restaurants, bars and cafes.
Polis
18 Villas
Polis Chrysochous, which means 'City of Gold', is at the north-west end of the island. It is a lovely unspoilt Cypriot town with a traditional feel. As in rural villages the world over, life revolves around the main square which is traffic-free. Around the square are interesting little shops, old fashioned Cypriot cafes and a number of tavernas and bars. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid-back, and there is always time to make a fuss of children, who will be made to feel very special and important!

Things to do in Cyprus

Being an island with such a varied and interesting history, there are many, many places to explore and delve into the past. There is a wealth of archaeological sites, museums, castles, monasteries and old Cypriot churches, all are well worth the visit.

Entrance costs vary but most are either free of charge or at a nominal cost. It is an island of diversity where potatoes grow in the rich, fertile soil of the east and yet bananas are abundant on the many plantations in the west.

Throughout Cyprus, the typically Mediterranean landscape is still blessed with the timeless beauty of antiquity. There are crusader fortresses framed by tall cypress trees, Greco-Roman theatres carved out of cliffs and Byzantine monasteries perched on mountaintops.

Sophisticated cities successfully balance the ancient and modern. The capital, Lefkosia (Nicosia), is surrounded by Venetian walls with heart-shaped bastions, Larnaca, site of the major international airport, is also home to St. Lazarus Church and the crypt of the eponymous saint resurrected by Christ.

Near the harbour at Paphos are the Roman floor mosaics of the Houses of Aion, Achilles and Dionysus their depictions of mythological scenes amazingly well preserved.

A visit to local wineries enables you to sample and savour the produce of the islands vineyards.

Archeology
Kato Paphos Archaeological Park near Paphos is where you will find the world famous Roman mosaics dating back 2,000 years. Mythological scenes are illustrated in marble and stone squares in the House of Dionysos, the House of Aion and the House of Theseus. On the road to Coral Bay is the Tomb of the Kings, catacombs where the cream of society was buried in the third century BC. Then there is the Odeon – not a cinema but an atmospheric ancient Greek [more] amphitheatre where performances still happen today. Polis, once the ancient city of Marion has been inhabited for more than 3000 years. Polis Chrysochous Archaeological Museum was built by the Cypriot Government to store and exhibit the rich archaeological finds from those previous civilisations. The Museum houses a collection of objects recovered from the graves of the great and the good by excavating ancient cemeteries or necropolis. There are still many archaeological digs going on here today by
teams from around the world. [less]
Dining Out
Although your villa kitchen is well appointed, there are many fine restaurants in the towns and it would be a shame not to sample them. The best is to be found in a traditional Cypriot family-run taverna in a village off the beaten track. Just see where the locals go and follow them! You will find the most authentic local "home-cooked" food this way. However, if you fancy a top notch international restaurant you have plenty of choice. Polis offers [more] Chinese, Middle Eastern and Italian food, as well as international and fusion dining and the areas around Paphos, Coral Bay and Chlorakas have splendid eating opportunities, ranging from five star five course gourmet dinners to pizza, burger and fish and chips. You can find excellent restaurants serving British, French, Indian, Lebanese, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Brazilian food [less]
Village life
You don’t really know Cyprus until you have visited some of the many little villages, where life revolves around the main square. This is true of Argaka and Ayia Marina and also of Polis, another unspoilt Cypriot village where the paved, traffic-free main square is the heart of the village. It is a place to see and be seen, buzzing with life and activity throughout the day and well into the night, its cafes, bars and restaurants overflowing with locals [more] and tourists alike. It’s the sort of place you can linger under the stars at an old family-run taverna enjoying classic Cypriot dishes washed down with good, cheap local wine. Around the square are interesting little shops, old fashioned Cypriot cafes and a number of tavernas and bars. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid-back, and there is always time to make a fuss of children, who will be made to feel very special and important!

It is the same in Chloraka, a traditional Cypriot village with an attractive centre clustered around the church. The village of Peyia is another traditional, family-oriented Cypriot village with its classic tavernas and old men enjoying backgammon and coffee as the world goes by, with no sense of urgency at all. [less]
Water Sports
The marvellous climate on the West Coast of Cyprus, means the sea temperature is rarely below 16 degrees Celsius and encourages a huge range of water sports all year round. Coral Bay is a big centre for diving, and as you would expect from the name, there are coral colonies to explore, as well as ancient wrecks, underwater cliffs, caves and valleys. Night dives can be particularly exciting! There are many PADI centres offering diving courses for beginners.
Beaches in Cyprus
The best place to soak up the Cyprus sunshine is at the beach, and with more than four hundred miles of coastline, there are plenty from which to choose.

Cyprus has a diverse geological terrain resulting in beaches of varying types. Umbrellas or sun beds are generally charged at the standard rate of approx. €2 per day or part thereof. All the main beaches have parking facilities however during peak season these can becomecrowded. There are no private beaches on theisland.

Moving from the north west of the island and following the coastline to the east you can visit a beach of your choice.The "Blue Flag Campaign" is a program launched in 1987 during the European Year for the Environment, which promotes clean beaches and environmentally sound management of coastal areas. The "Blue Flag" is awarded to beaches meeting strict criteria relating to environmental education and information, beach area management and quality of bathing water. In 2006 the International Blue Flag Jury awarded the Blue Flag to the following 49 beaches in 13 coastal communities and municipalities of Cyprus, so there are lots to choose from.
Blue Bay Beach
At the end of a country lane is this small pebble beach, which olive trees located along to the right. There are no facilites available at the beach.
Cape Greko
Cape Greco, also known as Cavo Greco, is a headland in the southeastern part of the island of Cyprus. It is at the southern end of Famagusta Bay. It is a part of Ayia Napa Municipality. It lies between the towns of Ayia Napa and Protaras, both of which are popular tourist resorts. It is frequently visited by many tourists for its natural beauty. It is a protected nature park. From the high points on the cliff that rests at the cape one can view amazing [more] sights out to sea. Cape Greco is a National Forest Park with unique fauna and fauna. [less]
Cavo Maris Beach
Cavo Maris beach, named after a hotel, is a small sandy beach with shallow waters and popular with families. Located in the same vicinity as the Lombardi beach, the beach is slightly larger and Cavo Maris water sports operate from this bay. Sun Loungers, umbrellas and pedaloes can be hired here.
Chlorakas Beach
Situated between the main resorts of Coral Bay and Paphos, Chlorakas Beach and coastline has some beautiful coves for swimming and snorkelling.
Chrysochous Bay Beach
Chrysochous Bay is close to Polis. This beach stretches from the edge of Akamas on the Polis/Latchi side to Pomos. The beach consists of shingle plus sand and is ideal for those seeking a more secluded beach.

Food & Drink in Cyprus
Cyprus has a thriving market culture - most major towns and even many of the smaller villages host regular open markets where local farmers and fishermen sell their produce. As well as the local food, you'll find plenty of wickerwork, hand-woven rugs and other souvenirs to choose from.

Local Markets - Cyprus Local Markets - Cyprus
Markets
Mondays and Wednesdays are the main market days in Cyprus, and most begin early in the morning until around midday. Here are a few of the best:

Paphos Market (Agora Street, Paphos), is a busy covered market which bears a resemblance to the traditional Middle Eastern souk, with trinkets and souvenirs galore. The main market square is where food-lovers will want to head, though - farm-fresh fruit and vegetables, succulent meats and fish all await at cheaper-than-supermarket prices!

Timi open air market is a Sunday morning market located close to Paphos airport. There is a large selection of clothes, jewellery souvenirs as well as fruit and veg. There is also a taverna and park area adjacent.

Speciality Dishes - Cyprus Speciality Dishes - Cyprus
Speciality Dishes
The cuisine of Cyprus is similar to that of Greece, but takes influences from French, Italian, Catalan and Middle Eastern cooking. Grilled halloumi, honey and pork sausages are all common - or why not try meze to taste a variety of flavours in one meal?

You can find more recommendations in our Cyprus resort guide . Popular dishes include:

Starter/Dips - Houmous - Chickpeas blended with sesame oil for a delicious dip. Tzatziki - Yoghurt with cucumbers, lemon juice and other flavours such as mint, often served as a cooling accompaniment to grilled meat. Taramasalata - Another dip-like starter, this is made from salted and cured roe and eaten with fresh salad. Sheftalia - These skinless pork or lamb sausages make a great snack: spicy without too much heat, they're often served in pita bread.

Main Courses - Afelia - Slow-cooked pork marinated in wine, this classic dish must be tasted to be believed. Kleftiko - Lamb is parcelled with vegetables and roasted slowly in a traditional clay oven to create this mouth-watering dish. Souvlaki - Meat (usually pork) is cooked over hot coals and served on a skewer for no-fuss eating.

Desserts - Baklava or Gadaifi - both very rich with plenty of honey or syrup. Lokma - Deep-fried little doughballs often served with honey and cinnamon for a delightful end to a meal.

Local Recipes
Dining out in Cyprus can be a real culinary adventure. Whether dining in a Cypriot taverna by the sea, up in the mountains or huge establishments with live music, the food is always delicious. Here are a couple of delicious recipes that can be created with only a handful of ingredients.
Afelia
Afelia - Cyprus
This tasty slow-cooked pork dish couldn't be simpler to make, but never fails to impress guests. It's usually cooked in a clay oven, but an ordinary electric or gas one works just as well! This recipe serves about eight. All you need is:
  • 1kg pork belly, cubed
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 1 glass of dry red wine
  • Half a glass of olive oil
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds, crushed
  • Half a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 160°C (325°F). Pour the red wine into a bowl with the coriander and bay leaves, then add the pork. Leave in the fridge to marinate for at least three or four hours, stirring once or twice - overnight is better if you can prepare ahead of time.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan before draining the meat, saving the marinade. Fry the pork on all sides until it is nicely browned, but not cooked through, then transfer the pork to a casserole dish. Fry the onions until soft and translucent and add these to the dish too.

Pour over the remaining marinade and add cinnamon, salt and pepper. Give it a stir and pop it in the preheated oven for an hour, until the meat is falling apart. Serve with rice and salad.

Halloumi aubergine burgers
Halloumi Aubergine Burgers - Cyprus
Cyprus' national cheese is extremely versatile - we've kept this vegetarian recipe simple enough to rustle up at home, but you can be much more adventurous if you like! This makes four burgers.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • Half an aubergine, cut into 8 slices
  • 250g block of halloumi, cut into 8 slices
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 roasted red pepper from a jar, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons harissa (spicy Tunisian chili sauce)
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, halved and toasted
  • 4 tablespoons houmous
Fry the onions on a high heat in the pan for about eight minutes until soft and golden, while cooking the aubergine slices in a separate pan for a few minutes until tender. When the aubergine is done, set aside and fry the halloumi in the pan until crispy and golden.

Make a relish by mixing the brown sugar, pepper and harissa into the onions and cooking for about a minute, until the sugar melts. Spread houmous onto the rolls and layer with slices of aubergine and halloumi - top with the spicy onion relish, and you're done!
