It is very hard to pick Cyprus’ best places, as it’s such a beautiful island! From the beaches in Paphos to the partying in Ayia Napa, there is something for everyone to enjoy. After much deliberation, here is our rundown on the top places to visit in Cyprus.
Jet off to a holiday in the Mediterranean and spend your days listening to the waves rippling into the shore while catching the sunrays on the Nissi Beach in Ayia Napa, where the water is so clear they have been awarded a blue flag. Alternatively, if you find yourself looking for a bit of adventure why not bungee jump off of a 200ft platform with a panoramic view of Ayia Napa!
Cape Greco is also a Cyprus must-see. Stand at the top of one of its cliffs and get a view of the sunset like no other, or explore the caves and hide away from the world for a moment of peace and quiet in what truly feels like the middle of nowhere.
Explore the Caledonia Falls to enjoy some true natural wonders. One of its special traits is you can follow any trail you can see or make your own up – it’s totally up to you! The waterfall is something you cannot miss, get a picture of the flowing water as the light hits it and you’ll be sure to make all your friends jealous! We recommend hiking up the peaceful narrow valley, sided by a rushing stream.
The capital of Cyprus is rich with attractions and sightseeing opportunities: you can wander through the markets and find some small trinkets to remind you of the amazing time you had in Cyprus. Culture lover? Pay a visit to either the Kykkos Monastery or Cyprus Museum, or discover the old city’s 16th-century Venetian walls including the Famagusta, Kyrenia and Paphos gates! Inside the walls, a marble mausoleum sits next to the 19th-century Faneromeni Church.
Birthplace of mythical Aphrodite, “Petra tou Romiou” is on one of the most beautiful coastlines of the island, located on the southwest coast of the Paphos district. After visiting it, you will know why it is a historical landmark in Kouklia!
Another fun and slightly spooky activity in Cyprus is exploring the ancient necropolis with tombs…and in Paphos you will be lucky enough to come across the Tombs of the kings! The underground tombs date back to the 4th century BC, so go on an adventure and see what you can find and learn about the island.
Akamas Peninsula National Park
The Akamas Peninsula National Park lies on the west coast of Cyprus and is one of Cyprus’ best areas. It covers over 230km2 of valleys, gorges and wide sandy bays, along with 168 different varieties of birds, 20 different reptiles, 16 species of butterflies and 12 different mammals – not to mention its very rich variety of vegetation!
