Frequently asked questions
This is one of those how long is a piece of string kind of questions as you won’t run out of things to do in Cyprus. Can you ever really get tired of laying by the beach swimming your worries away? That said, a week would be ideal to see, do and eat your way around the island.
This feels like a trick question as there are no bad beaches in Cyprus. As a guide, Limasso is great for families while Lara Beach tends to be a little less crowded than some of Cyprus' main beaches. Nissi Beach is a wonderful all-rounder.
July and August in Cyprus is the high season so expect high rates, high temps and busy beaches. The shoulder seasons, from April to June and September to November are ideal for those who prefer things a little less chaotic.
The beauty of Cyprus is that it can be as busy or as laid-back as you choose. You can strap on your hiking boots and hit the mountains and explore the ancient sites, or you can spend days (weeks) moseying from bar to beach, devouring your body weight in seafood and partying until the wee hours.
Cyprus is a country split in two, North Cyprus and the Republic of Cyprus (southern Cyprus). North is Turkish while the south is Greek although both sides are welcoming to all travellers. You will find beautiful beaches and delicious food all around the island, but as a general guide, head to the capital city of Nicosia for Cypriot culture, Paphos for sandy beaches and the mountain village of Troodos for a nature getaway.
Swimmers, a hat, lightweight everyday clothes and, perhaps most importantly, comfortable shoes.
Paphos is said to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, and is where you will find Tombs of the Kings Archaeological Park. For nightlife, a vibrant dining scene and the famous Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa is your place, while its neighbour, Protaras, is a purpose-built resort that is a little more laid back. For something a little more active, explore the Troodos Mountains or visit the ancient city of Salamis.
