Cyprus is an island of contrasts. You’ll find quaint tavernas and a relaxed welcome in the rustic fishing village of Latchi. Or you can party all night in bustling Ayia Napa. Enjoy the family-friendly, soft sand beaches around Nissi Bay, or explore some of the world’s most important archaeological sites in Paphos on the south-west coast. Admire the superyachts lined up in Limassol, or enjoy a laid-back stroll along the palm-lined promenade in Larnaca.

Located where east meets west at the furthest reach of the Mediterranean, there are abundant ancient Greek and Roman ruins to discover during your holiday in Cyprus, especially around Paphos. A rich tradition of delicious food and wine across the island whets the appetite of foodies. And the tempting blue sea is the perfect place to enjoy water sports from sailing to banana boat rides. The large rock formation known as Petra tou Romiou is thought to be the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite. Swim around the rock three times, and according to local legend, you’ll be granted eternal beauty!

Play or relax on soft white sands lapped by a turquoise sea around the island. If you like a lively atmosphere, Nissi Beach on the east coast has a wide range of beachfront tavernas and bars as well as a choice of water sports on offer. Families flock to nearby Fig Tree Bay Beach, where the shallow waters are ideal for little ones to splash around in. Escape the crowds and seek out quieter spots, such as the peaceful Lara Bay beach in the north west of the island. Here you may even be lucky enough to spot a loggerhead turtle.

There’s no shortage of fascinating ancient sites to discover on the island. One of the best is Paphos’ House of Dionysius. This restored Roman villa draws visitors from around the world, who marvel at the intricate mosaics and find out more about the Roman way of life. The influence of the ancient Greeks can also be explored. A couple of kilometres to the north of Paphos is the Tombs of the Kings. This UNESCO World Heritage site dates back over 2,300 years old and is a series of intricately carved stone tombs, the final resting place of around 100 Greek aristocrats. Enjoy a taste of living history at the restored Amphitheatre in Kourion. The bright blue sea offers a wonderful backdrop to the regular performances here, which range from music events to staging of classic ancient Greek plays.

Meze is the delicious regional dish that you’ll find on menus in tavernas across the island. A series of small dishes make the most of local produce, and are a great way to share a family meal. Try freshly grilled halloumi cheese or sheftalia, a type of sausage. As you’d expect, seafood is also plentiful, with lemon drizzled fried calamari a popular choice. Take the opportunity to sample afelia, another classic Cypriot dish made from pork slow-cooked in red wine with coriander seeds. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss out the chance to try loukoumi, the famous local sweets also known as Cyprus Delights, which are very similar to the more famous Turkish version. Then wash it all down with a cup of glyko, a very strong coffee with fruit sweets.

For opera lovers: Each year an international theatre troupe performs an opera outside Paphos’ medieval castle. Part of the famous Aphrodite Festival, it’s a popular spectacle for culture-vultures that’s not to be missed.

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.
