Cyprus is a diverse and stunning island which dates back to the stone age and has been home to numerous conquering nations over the centuries.
There is so much history to be discovered & enjoyed: ancient tombs, churches, monasteries and local customs that, like me, will have you in awe during your time here.
Couples can enjoy romantic settings and incredible treks along beautiful coastlines, to waterfalls and through traditional villages. Families can enjoy the safe, clean beaches and the atmosphere of local towns and for the very active there are water parks galore.
Clear seas and warm waters make Cyprus ideal for diving. The sea temperature during the summer months reach as high as 30 degrees resulting in one of the longest diving seasons in the Mediterranean, while the absence of plankton makes for great visibility.
The underwater coastal reefs teem with a wide variety of colourful fish, sponges, coral, sea anemones, octopus, mussels and the ubiquitous sea urchin providing a spectacular picture. Sea turtles can be spotted regularly, thanks to a turtle conservation project that has increased their numbers around the island considerably.
Spectacular underwater caves and tunnels and a number of interesting paths are just waiting to be explored, while the remains of ancient amphora and stone anchors make it a veritable adventure.
