There's so much to love about Cyprus. For starters, it's the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the legendary goddess of love, and it's clear that she left her mark here. This captivating island is a beautiful place that's home to glorious seascapes, gorgeous golden sands stunning mountains, so as destinations go, Cyprus holidays are pretty close to perfect.
Anchored in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus offers a wonderful climate that regularly peaks in the early 30s during the summer season, and hovers around 20-25 during spring and autumn. Even during the winter months, temperatures on this lovely sunny island make t-shirts and shorts a possibility while the rest of Britain is shivering in winter's icy grip.
So, sunshine aside, what else can you expect from Cyprus holidays? Its resorts are plentiful and enormously varied. You've got party-mad Ayia Napa for non-stop nightlife and energetic clubs that will keep you dancing 'til the small hours. This is a great spot for 18-30s style getaways and, as well as a buzzing nightlife, it's also home to some cracking beaches. So make sure you pack your swimwear and plenty of Factor 30 - because sunburn and blisters are never a good look!
For something a little quieter, Nissi beach is located just a few miles away from Ayia Napa and makes a great spot for anyone who fancies being within reach of the nightlife, without compromising a good night's sleep. Or if you fancy soaking up a bit of classic Cypriot culture, head to the town of Paphos. This is a great place with a lovely harbour and stacks of historical sights nearby, including Aphrodite's Rock and the ancient Tombs of the Kings.
You'll find holidays here and in many other locations by flicking through the holiday brochures of major tour operators, like Thomas Cook. Even better, get online and search the website for all the latest moneys-saving deals and inspiration on where to go. One thing's for sure, Cyprus holidays are pretty special - and one visit to this captivating island is never usually the last...
