With Greece struggling to make ends meet, visiting one of the country’s splendid islands is the perfect way to make your contribution and help out and have an incredible holiday at the same time.
Most Greek islands are at their best in the summer between May and October, and if you opt for Cyprus, you are sure to be amazed by the kind of Mediterranean gem that features breathtaking beaches, luxurious hotels and a slice of history.
Cyprus is one of the largest Greek islands and it lies between Europe, Asia and Africa, making it an ideal spot for exploring historical remains going back thousands of years.
Cyprus is also known for its hiking and cycling trails, so if you’re looking for an active vacation in the Mediterranean, this is definitely the destination for you.
Engaging in exploratory activities is best done off season, in the spring or in the fall, as the summer is so hot all you want to do is lounge around the beach all day.
Speaking of beaches, make sure you check out miles and miles of long sandy beaches, secluded bays and family resorts. If you prefer to take a discovery trip under the water, Cyprus offers phenomenal snorkelling and diving spots, or you could always take a cruise ship tour and explore the island from the sea.
With everything it has to offer, Cyprus is one of those places that once you get to know it you always want to come back for more and enjoy the island afresh.
