Once a fisherman's village, Ayia Napa lies at the eastern edge of Cyprus and has grown to become the island's most popular resort. The stunning central beach of Liminaki, lies alongside the fishing harbour with glorious Nissi Beach to the west and Makronissos Beach on the outskirts of the town. The golden sand beaches and crystal clear waters offer activities and watersports galore. For those looking for a quieter and more peaceful experience, there are smaller beaches and romantic coves to explore within easy reach of the resort. Ayia Napa is young and lively, an excellent choice for families and couples alike.

The town centre of Ayia Napa is dominated by the 16th Century monastery and the Holy Church of Ayia Napa. A visit to the town square fountain, surrounded by cafes, bars, local craft stalls, portrait painters and other attractions, makes a lovely break from the hotel and beach. There are many shops to buy souvenirs or local handicrafts such as leather goods, jewellery and pottery. Ayia Napa provides visitors with an excellent choice of cuisine, from elegant international restaurants, serving Chinese, Italian and Mexican to local tavernas serving typical Cypriot dishes of lamb and seafood. The harbour area is lined with excellent fish tavernas serving a selection of locally caught fish of the day. There is plenty of nightlife in town with local bars, and discos, or for those who prefer to stay close to home, the hotels have an excellent programme of entertainment with their own nightclubs and discos.

coral bay

A popular little tourist resort in the Peyia municipality, situated only 6 kilometres north of the city of Paphos, Coral Bay is a small coastal town with a magnificent stretch of beach that is Blue Flag certified. A cosmopolitan beach resort visited by tourists and locals alike, Coral Bay is a family friendly holiday destination, ideally situated for exploring the rest of the island and providing a great base from which to venture out into other popular Cyprus destinations such as the nearby city of Paphos, only a short drive up north passing through lovely banana plantations and green vineyards). Conveniently located only 30 minutes from the Paphos airport, local attractions at Coral Bay (beside its stunning and pristine beach) include a myriad of quaint mini-markets, bars and restaurants. A regular bus service connects holidaymakers to the centre of Paphos.

Highly reputable for having an exceptional beach strip that bears an official EU Blue Flag certification, which means that it adheres to all ecological standards for sustainability and eco-preservation, Coral Bay is a popular sport for visitors from all European corners. The beach itself is a pebbly natural sand beach spanning a total of 600 metres in a crescent shape. The sea has a shallow margin, making it ideal for children to play safely. There are many water sports on offer including pedaloes, water skiing, banana boats, jet skis and windsurfing.

larnaca

Larnaca was founded in the 13th Century BC by the Mycenaeans and was originally known as Kition. Today the town is a fascinating blend of old and new, with historic sites, museums and a fortress castle overlooking the tree lined seafront and long sandy bay. The town is rich in history and has several museums. Larnaca is particularly proud to have been the town chosen by the biblical figure Lazarus. He is said to have spent his ‘second life’ in Larnaca becoming the Bishop of Cyprus and was buried under the main alter of Ayios Lazarus in the town centre. Larnaca’s fascinating Salt Lake is home to wild fowl and hundreds of flamingos in winter and in summer, when the water evaporates, the salt is collected for marketing. On the west bank is the Moslem shrine of Hala Sultan Tekke. In the surrounding area there are many pretty villages such as Kiti with their own history and attractions.

In recent years Larnaca has developed into a sophisticated holiday resort with the convenience of an international airport, yachting marina and elegant shopping area around Zenon Kitieos Street. The lovely cafes of the seafront promenade are perfect for an evening drink whilst watching the world go by. The resort has a bustling nightlife with an abundance of restaurants ranging from contemporary international cuisine to small family run tavernas offering traditional local dishes. Larnaca's central location means that it is an excellent base from which to explore the exciting attractions of Cyprus.

limassol

The cosmopolitan city of Limassol is located on the south coast of Cyprus, approximately one hour from Paphos and Larnaca airports. It is the second largest city of Cyprus and one of the most popular resort areas. Limassol has a wide selection of good hotels, beaches and a multitude of facilities. The surrounding countryside is the island's main wine producing region, with picturesque villages known for their excellent produce. Just a little further away are the majestic Troodos Mountains where the air is cool and pure - a perfect escape from the heat of the summer and only a short drive away.

Limassol has a wealth of treasures with Limassol Castle, home to the Cyprus Medieval Museum, and the Greco-Roman Kourion Theatre. The theatre hosts guest and local theatre companies each summer with exciting al fresco performances. The impressive 15th century Kolossi Castle is also nearby. The Knights of St John of Jerusalem built the castle as their headquarters with three-metre thick walls. Limassol offers a shoppers' delight with elegant boutiques, jewellery shops, mini markets and stores. Best buys are silverware, the island's renowned handmade lace, leather goods, pottery and silks. Limassol also offers a range of international restaurants and tavernas so there is something to suit all tastes. At night the city is lively and dynamic with nightclubs and discos to dance the night away or bouzouki tavernas and bars to relax and soak up the atmosphere.

nissi bay

Nissi Bay boasts one of the most popular beaches in Cyprus, Nissi Beach. A sand bar leads to a small offshore islet, or Nissi in Greek, that shelters the beaches from the wind creating ideal conditions for water sports and calm waters for children to play in. The wide stretch of sand beach is a fantastic place for people watching or for simply soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine. Behind the beach, there are bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. Nissi Bay is located three kilometres west of Ayia Napa and these closely connected beaches attract thousands of tourists every year. Ayia Napa has a legendary nightlife with a lively town square and waterfront with many restaurants, bars and nightclubs. There are other beaches scattered around the area offering terrific watersports or you can escape to a pretty little cove further along the coast.

paphos

The ancient town of Paphos, once the capital of Cyprus, is located at the southwest corner of the island and is one of the finest sightseeing resorts in the Mediterranean. Paphos is divided in to upper and lower sections, Ano Paphos sits on the hillside overlooking the picturesque harbour and Kato Paphos is the main tourist area. The beaches in the area are clean and inviting and offer a variety of water sports. Coral Bay is just 4 km north of town and is a popular family beach with shallow water and soft sand. Paphos has recently been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List and is brimming with ancient history and archaeological sites. Highlights include the harbour’s medieval fort and the House of Dionysos with its beautifully preserved mosaics. Nearby are the sites of St Paul's Pillar, the Tombs of the Kings and the Temple of Aphrodite. Paphos is a place of legend where Aphrodite is reputed to have risen from the crashing waves.

The bustling market in the Paphos old town offers items at exceptional value including souvenirs, hand made lace and embroidery, silverware, leather, jewellery and pottery. There are many places to eat in and around town, with tempting waterfront taverns and bars, offering typical Cypriot "mezes". International restaurants and traditional taverns can also be found on the promenade or hidden away in the resort's side streets. Hiring a car opens up the many attractions further a field, see the quaint hill villages and wine making regions of island’s interior, the Baths of Aphrodite and the beaches of Polis and Lara on the quieter Akamas Peninsular.

pissouri

Beautifully perched upon a panoramic hill, the sleepy town of Pissouori lies between the larger Cypriot cities of Limassol and Paphos, with an idyllic location between the two but far from the more cosmopolitan hustle and bustle of both. Now they are two distinct communities, Pissouri village and Pissouri Beach. The total population in the summer is said to reach around 1100 people, about half of whom are Cypriots, the rest foreign, mainly British, residents and visitors. The Pissouri area is famous for growing grapes, mainly in the valley between the main roads and the sea that leads to Pissouri Beach. Pissouri is nicely isolated from urban life but only about a 30 minute drive away from either Paphos or Limassol, for those who want to see a more cosmopolitan ambiance than Pissouri can offer.

The distinctive Cypriot character of this village has been retained as it is still very much a working village of farmers. It is ultimately this very Cypriot character that adds to the area's natural appeal and attracts the foreign visitor, holidaymaker and expatriate residents. In Pissouri there are several shops, and many tavernas, restaurants and bars serving food and drink of exceptional quality. There are also three banks' branches in Pissouri village's central square. While the motorway has brought Pissouri closer to the larger cities and resorts of Limassol and Paphos, the unique charm and character of the of the area is likely to be retained for many years as the village is pretty safe from massive tourist invasion.

polis

A small town situated in north-western Cyprus, Polis is a quiet and peaceful tourist resort at the centre of Chrysochous Bay. Positioned right on the edge of the stunning Akamas peninsula nature reserve, this lovely fishing town attracts travellers from all over the world who come for isolation and seclusion in calm surroundings with the added quaintness of a traditional Cypriot village. Highly reputed for its many fish taverns, sea-port facilities and boat rides up the Akamas Nature Reserve, tourists that seek to combine peace and quiet with natural beauty will find their perfect holiday destination in Polis.

This little town's close proximity to the strikingly beautiful Akamas peninsula is the main attraction for holidaymakers who choose this as their holiday retreat. Places not to miss during a stay in Polis include the Akamas Nature Reserve (destined to become a National Park in due course) with its famous Baths of Aphrodite and its panoramic nature trails, quaint restaurants and charming sea port. Free from the massive hordes of tourists, Polis is probably Cyprus' best kept secret and a popular destination for many Cypriot residents, giving visitors a chance to mingle with the locals and get a more upclose, personal and real experience of Cyprus life.

protaras

Protaras is an area of picturesque bays, golden sands and clear Mediterranean waters. Located between Cape Greco and the village of Paralimni on the east coast of Cyprus, this beach resort is quieter than the nearby resort of Ayia Napa and suites couples and families. Sunbathing is usually a priority for most visitors to Protaras and there is also a great range of water sports available at the beach. The seaside promenade is the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely stroll or bicycle ride and for something a little different, climb the 300 steps up to the hilltop Church of Prophet Elias for panoramic views of the town and sea. There are also many villages, churches and windmills in the surrounding area and the beautiful Cavo Greko National Forest Park where you can try cycling, horse riding and hiking. Protaras has a wide variety of restaurants and bars and is located just 8 km away from the party capital of Cyprus, Ayia Napa. Protaras offers a Cypriot holiday with something for everyone.
