What To Do On Vacation In Cyprus

Mar 22, 2008
Cyprus is said to be a year-round island for tourists due to its excellent climate. It lies at the crossroads of three continents, where East meets West and there is always something new for the tourist to do every day.

It is an island full of Championship Golf courses, stunning clean sandy inviting beaches, and breathtaking mountain trails snake around the island. Along side these perfect holiday conditions have sprung up some beautiful holiday villas with swimming pools.

Cyprus is a holiday island that has a special charm unique to this sun drenched island. It is a compact and attractive island blessed with a rich variety of landscapes. As well as clean beaches, well serviced by self catering apartments and holiday villas, it also offers skiing and hiking.

It is an island with rugged mountains and hilltop villages providing cheap holiday home rentals enabling you to experience the true charm of the local area.
Many tourists go on vacation to Cyprus and taste the local wine that is grown on the steep stony slopes.

Others visit the Roman and Greek remnants that scatter the island and sit dramatically amongst its coast and mountains. Moving into the towns and cities, there is a dash of Mediterranean culture to go with the bright lights and buzzing night life.

Nestled amongst the hill tops of Cyprus are some old farm cottages that have been converted to holiday homes and some are now available to rent directly from their owners. Further down the slopes are some magnificent holiday villas, many complete with their own swimming pools.In some of the towns, there are now many self catering holiday apartments available to chose from.

The clean beaches are popular with tourists wanting to sunbath and enjoy the water sports. Holiday homes are now a popular form of accommodation and some stunning holiday villas are now available to rent near the long sandy beaches. Tourists on a beach holiday enjoy the swimming, sailing, scuba and diving. The sandy beaches are edged by the sparkling clear Mediterranean sea.

The local food is popular with holiday makers staying in self catering apartments and in Cyprus there is an abundance of fresh and delicious traditional drinks.
Many tourists come back to rent holiday villas just to re sample the famous mouth-watering local cuisine of this magical island.

Rustic villages give holiday makers the feeling of stepping back in time and yet just a few miles away are the modern cities of Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos. Old holiday cottages are dotted around these rustic villages and yet just a few minutes away in the cities are self catering holiday apartments. It is no wonder that Cyprus has become one of the most popular tourist destinations for people wanting holiday villas.
