Cyprus holidays

Explore Aphrodite's island

Golden sands, historical sites and sublime mountainscapes – Cyprus is more than just a beach destination. Offering long days of sunshine throughout the year, Cyprus is not only an excellent choice for those seeking summer sun, but is also a great option for a sunny winter escape. Relax on Blue Flag-awarded beaches, savour mouth-watering cuisine or put on your hiking shoes and explore Aphrodite’s island.

  • An excellent choice for summer sun and winter getaways
  • Not just a beach destination – Cyprus offers charming monasteries, ancient tombs and breathtaking landscapes in the Troodos Mountains
  • Delicious cuisines - a combination of Greek and Middle Eastern dishes that offer something for every palate
  • Great for families with shallow waters, Blue Flag-awarded beaches and family-friendly hotels. And with roads to match those in the UK, getting around couldn’t be easier
  • Perfect for wine buffs – with the Troodos Mountains’ mild winter conditions, some of the best wines in the Mediterranean are made here – particularly Maratheftiko (red) or Xynisteri (white).
