Getting Around

By bus: Buses in Cyprus don’t run to a set schedule, but they are cheap and comfortable. They make a great option if you’re on a budget and just want to visit the island’s main attractions.

By hire car: If you fancy exploring rural Cyprus then it’s worth hiring a car. Take a leisurely drive to the Venetian watchtower at Potamos Liopetriou or the wineries of Lania.


Flower power: In May, fresh flowers fill the town of Paphos for the Anthestiria Festival. Floats decorated with brightly coloured blooms travel through the streets in a celebration of spring and nature’s rebirth.

For opera lovers: At the end of summer, an international theatre troupe performs a world famous opera for the Aphrodite Festival. The opera is performed outside Paphos’ medieval castle and is one of the most popular annual events on the island.

Wine tasting: Taking place around the same time is the Limassol Wine Festival. Have a glass or two with the locals as you enjoy live theatre and traditional Cypriot music.

Holidays in Cyprus

Cyprus Sunrise Cyprus Countryside Cyprus Holidays Building in Cyprus

An enchanting island, steeped in myth and romance. Cyprus has been welcoming visitors for thousands of years – Romans, Greeks and Arabs have all added to the island's culture. And now, holidays in Cyprus offer superb beaches, secluded villages and cosmopolitan resorts to thousands of British visitors.

Prices start from £202

From lively resorts like Ayia Napa, where you can dance the night away, to traditional Cypriot villages high up in the Troodos Mountains, you’ll find cobbled streets sharply contrasted with modern beachfront hotels. If you want to simply unwind and relax in the idyllic climate, then experience the friendly tavernas and traditional Cypriot welcome in the village of Latchi or stroll the palm-lined promenade in Larnaca, the oldest town on the island. On the south-west coast, Paphos is the place to explore the island’s ancient history. For immaculate soft sand beaches, head east to Nissi Bay.


Once the capital of Cyprus, this lush and colourful resort also offers quiet coves and sandy bays. The market is held in Old Paphos where many historical sites sit alongside the modern part of town. Here you'll find the harbour with its inviting tavernas, clubs and bars.

Nissi Bay

One of the finest sandy beaches in Cyprus, located west of the harbour at Ayia Napa. Popular with anyone who likes a lively atmosphere both on the beach and in resort, with plenty of watersports and a good choice of bars and restaurants.


Located on Cyprus’ southern coast, Larnaca is the oldest town on the island. It’s modern and traditional at the same time, with the 10th century stone church of Agios Lazaros just a few minutes’ walk from the elegant palm-tree lined promenade. Stop at a nearby café and watch the boats in the glistening marina.
