Holiday island Cyprus has a dry and sunny climate all year long - something we consider pretty important for any beach holiday destination. It's also renowned for its beautiful landscapes, inspiring ancient architecture and the soft, sandy beaches dotted along the coast.
The island remains divided between the Turkish north and Cypriot south. While both areas are popular holiday destinations, the north is cheaper and sits outside the Euro-zone. The south has superior infrastructure and facilities for tourists, and remains the most popular with UK visitors.
Cheap deals can always be found, even in the peak season, but you will see better offers if you travel in the spring or autumn, when the weather is still hot.
Holidays to Cyprus have become ever more popular as more low-cost airlines have started to offer the route from the UK. The resorts lining Cyprus' sun-kissed shores have simply flourished.
The most popular resorts in Cyprus have gained their reputations for very distinct reasons. Ayia Napa holidays are geared toward the young clubbing crowds and have bars and nightclubs to rival those of Ibiza.
On the west coast you can enjoy much more laid-back Cyprus holidays in the charming resort-town of Paphos. This traditional Cypriot town slopes down toward a charming harbour area where cafes and tavernas line the waterfront. Paphos is close to some beautiful Cypriot countryside as well as the Archaeological Park featuring some stunning mosaics.
Larnaca is another very popular holiday resort. It has the advantage of its own airport, so there's no long transfer time between you and the sunlounger. Some of the prettiest beaches on Cyprus are to be found in the numerous coves of Fig Tree Bay which is at the resort of Protaras, near Aiya Napa.
If you want something completely different did you know it is possible to ski in Cyprus, up in the Troodos mountains? The season generally lasts from January to March. The mountains are popular with hikers the rest of the year round.
The diversity of resorts in Cyprus means that there are different types of holidays to suit a very wide range of preferences. If you want a multi-destination or a tailored holiday you can find separate hotels in Cyprus in several resorts.
