The third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is a popular European holiday destination. Most visitors head straight for the resorts of Pafos, Agia Napa and Lemesos (Limasol), but there is far more to Cyprus than these tourist hot spots. Karpas Peninsula is known for its gorgeous beaches, as is Akamas Peninsula. You’ll find more beautiful coastline in Protaras and Pernera, while Agia Napa is home to fantastic nightlife. Whichever area you stay in, be sure to choose a Cyprus villa, apartment or other holiday rental. By avoiding touristy hotels, you’ll live amongst the locals an experience a true taste of authentic Cyprus life.
