Cyprus Popular Destinations

Agia Napa One of Cypress top tourist attractions. Thirty years ago this seaside resort town did not exist. Today its excellent beaches, hotels, restaurants and superb clubs are the best the country has to offer.

Larnaka A popular coastal town with a fort dating back to the 15th century as well as the underground biblical city of Kition.

Paphos On the west coast of the island, the town of Paphos attracts many tourists due to its favourable location near many other charming seaside towns. Vouni Panayia Winery is located east of the city and is a great place to sample the local wines. Coral Bay to the north is the place to go if diving is your passion with many dive shops that offer courses and excursions.

Cyprus Beaches

Fig Tree Bay Ideal for all kinds of sea sports, this is an exceptionally beautiful beach. It is extremely popular and has many shops, restaurants and cafes that look on to it.

Agia Napa Considered as having the best beaches in the Mediterranean with crystal clear water, golden sands and all the expected facilities and water sports. Some of the beaches include Macronissos well sheltered; Ayia Thekla small with a reachable small island; Nissi Bay sheltered, good facilities; Sandy Bay good for water sports; Limnara well protected with water sports; Main Beach very popular with good facilities.

West Coast Excellent, wide sandy beaches overlooked by luxury hotels and restaurants surround Coral Bay. If you prefer a quieter beach experience you can make your way to Cape Lara, which is the nesting site for Green and Loggerhead turtles.

Moving Around Cyprus

Most International flights land at the airport in Larnaka. There is a reliable highway system that serves most of the country and cars are available to rent. An island wide bus service schedule can be picked up at most tourist offices. Service taxis which hold 4-7 people are the most reliable and most common form of transport used by tourists.
