With such a vast array of things to see and do from fine, sandy beaches and a lively nightlife along the south coast, wild, unspoiled national parks north - west of the Akamas Peninsula to ancient culture further inland where villages haven't changed for generations.

Many people are attracted to the unique variety of food on offer that you can't quite find anywhere else in the world. Drawn from sources all around the Eastern Mediterranean, salads, fruits and meat dishes are popular amongst locals and tourists. There are also many options for vegetarians with tasty dishes that are cooked with olive oil, tomatoes and local herbs and spices which give them distinctive flavours.

There is so much to do in Cyprus including golf, bird watching, water sports, diving and mini cruises. There are also events which occur regularly throughout the year that you can participate in.

Diving is a particularly popular activity that many tourists try while in Cyprus as the coastline off the Akamas is widely regarded as the most exciting diving area on the island. With sites like St. George's Island, The Blue Lagoon and The Garden of Eden, there is plenty to explore. There are virtually no tides and currents and the sea is comfortably warm all year which are all factors contributing to why diving in Cyprus is so popular.
