Laying low in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is a beautiful island whose time is yet to come. A combination of religions, languages, Turkish and Greek culture, old island life with beach-clubbing…Cyprus is a true melting pot. And the first of its kind! Think of it as Ibiza with the history of Athens and Istanbul.

Limassol

Limassol is the second largest city in Cyprus, and a tourism and culture hotspot. With archaeological landmarks, economic developments and the Cyprus University of Technology, it is a true example of Cyprus’ duality.

Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa is situated in the south-eastern region of Cyprus and is the trendiest location for a clubbing holiday.

It provides you with unspoiled beaches (Nissi Beach being the most popular), warm waters, and bathing, tanning and water sports extravaganza.

“The Square” is the most famous clubbing district, filled with restaurants and night clubs including “The Castle Club” – the largest club in Cyprus and one of its most popular night time destinations for over two decades.

Platres

Under the slopes of the Troodos Mountains, Platres is a perfect spot for hiking and picnics. It’s is the place to be when you want to escape the vigorous life of clubbing. The Troodos Mountains are a perfect skiing location. Its snow season occurs from December to April, and peak snowfall for skiing usually falls in January.

Larnaca

Larnaca is one of the oldest cities on the island, and its coastline is home of the Wreck of the Zenobia, one of the top wreck diving sites in the world. The Larnaca Salt Lake is famous for its fauna. It houses as many as 7000 flamingos each year.

Paphos

Paphos is, without any doubt, the culture capital of Cyprus. Rich in cultural heritage and dated architectural landscapes, it offers a look at the Tombs of the Kings, Adonis Baths Waterfalls, Ayios Neophytos Monastery, the Kato Paphos Archaeological Par, and many other sites.

Paphos is also home to the Elysium Hotel, a five star deluxe hotel, situated near some of the sites and known for its outstanding service and quality.
