Beach holidays in Cyprus

By: Keith Barrett

You'll almost certainly have heard a little about what this island has to offer because it seems to crop up in magazines and newspaper reports each summer.

Many such reports focus on the role of Ayia Napa. Ayia Napa was once a small, sleepy fishing village. Today, it attracts more than 250,000 tourists each year, with few of them looking to go fishing.

The reason for its popularity is that it enjoys a vibrant nightlife scene. This is one of the European capitals of dance music. Ayia Napa is a resort where people spend the days oon the beach and the evenings in the clubs, bars and discos.

Such images of Cyprus ignore the rest of the island though.

This is a place where many more visitors shun Ayia Napa in favour of spending a family holiday at the island's other resorts.

Popular locations include Paphos, Limassol and Protaras. What draws so many here is undoubtedly the fantastic climate.

Located at the eastern end of the Mediterranean, Cyprus lies between Europe and the Middle East. This location ensures that it enjoys long, hot summers.

If you want to find great weather, then many would suggest that Cyprus is the place to come. This is a sun lovers paradise.

The locals are friendly too. As is the case in Greece, Cyprus is well geared up to family holidays, meaning that there is fun to be found for people of all ages, young and old.

With great beaches, a wonderful climate and friendly local people, the island looks set to remain a popular holiday destination.
