Many travellers just think of Cyprus as another summer, beach destination. Whereas they fail to see that Cyprus has a rich history, with compelling cultures, landscapes and very friendly locals. Cypriots have a very outdoorsy lifestyle, due to their fairly mild climate all year round, they love mountain biking, swimming and hiking, to name just a few. Cyprus offers all of this to it’s travellers and so much more, whether you’re a keen surfer, scuba divers, hiker or party goer, Cyprus has it all.
Beaches to the North and South of Cyprus have become the last Mediterranean breeding grounds and nests for green and loggerhead turtles, which is something not to miss. Or head to Girne, which is undoubtably one of the prettiest ports on the island, full of quaint cafes and restaurants.
