Cyprus the Island of Aphrodite

Cyprus holidays are blessed with a long summer season

The Island of Aphrodite, centuries of history yet eternally young. In here you will find all the general information that you would possibly need.

Cyprus, an island drenched in sun and mythology, at the crossroads of ancient civilizations. This island, in the Eastern Mediterranean has seen many visitors, some built temples to their Gods, some castles for their Kings, the Crusaders used it as a staging post, and the pirates for a plunder.

Cyprus is a beautiful island set in the Eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea. Each year many tourists visit the island to enjoy the warm sunny climate and clear skies, the exquisite and variant coastline and the charming hospitality of the local people. The island has a diverse geological scenery - raised beaches, coastal sand dunes, tombolos, sea cliffs and caves, ravines, gorges, tiny isles, rocky beaches, sandy beaches and much more, all waiting to be discovered.

Cyprus is an island of beauty and a country of contrasts. Cool, pine-clad mountains are a complete scene-change after golden sun-kissed beaches. Tranquil, timeless villages are in striking contrast to modern cosmopolitan towns; luxurious beachside hotels can be exchanged for large areas of natural unspoiled countryside; yet in Cyprus all distances are easily manageable, mostly on modern roads and highways - with a secondary route or two for the more adventurous.

Cyprus with its spectacular scenery and enviable climate, it's no wonder that Aphrodite chose the island as her playground, and since then, mere mortals have been discovering this 'land fit for Gods' for themselves.

Cyprus night life caters for all tastes too. A number of tavernas serve-up traditional dancing along with the meze, and some of the impressive discos rival any in Europe. Nightclubs are also plentiful and most hotels have resident bands.
