Although relatively small, Cyprus exudes a diverse character with numerous cultural influences and offers something for all travellers. From beautiful beaches and olive groves, from Greco-Roman architecture to mythical gods and goddesses, you will be enchanted.

 
The island generously offers visitors a cornucopia of breathtaking views.  Admire the pine-covered Troodos Mountains in the west, churches perched on peaks and quaint hamlets nestled on the hill sides. Sleepy villages are scattered around the Arkamas peninsula where visitors head for a taste of traditional Greek coffee.

Paphos is said to be the birthplace of Aphrodite. Its romantic air carries through with its tree-fringed boulevards, fashionable eateries, beautiful beaches and historical sites.
 
While in Cyprus indulge in the authentic cuisine that delights all tastes. For a rich variety of foods, order the classic meze which includes the utterly divine halloumi cheese made from local goat’s milk. 

When you have had your fill of fine dining, sightseeing or beach-lounging, the island is perfect destination for adventure too. Pony-trekking, biking, jeep safaris, parasailing, rock-climbing, golfing and sailing are just some examples of the thrilling activities available.
