Why visit Cyprus in 2022?

cyprus

 

The eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus is most famous for its rich archaeological sites, beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, eye opening villas, and of course for being the birthplace of Aphrodite – the ancient Greek goddess of beauty and love.
 
So why not treat yourself to a Cyprus holiday in 2022?  Here are some of the best places to visit in Cyprus and come highly recommended. 
 

Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa 

The white sandy beach is amazing but be prepared to see a lot of other beachgoers. It is among the most popular beaches in Cyprus, but beautiful nonetheless. Nissi Beach is easily accessible and there are loads of fun things to do. From parties and nightly entertainment, you will always find something to enjoy.
 
Time it right and you will be lucky enough to find a small island appear when the tide is out, allowing visitors to walk out and get an amazing look at the Nissi shore. Water sports, boat rentals and plenty of local bars and small cafes are close by, all of which make this location the place to be. Remember your euros for the umbrella and sunbeds as it will be hot during the summer season!
 

Ayia Napa and Protaras

Cyprus is famous for its amazing beaches. Some of the best beaches are found in the eastern part of the country, near the resorts of Ayia Napa and Protaras. Remember Ayia Napa is very popular amongst those that love to party!
 
The resort of Protaras which is just around 10km away from Ayia Napa, is much quieter and geared more towards families and locals too. Both have beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters and golden sand.
 

Paphos

Paphos is the smallest city in Cyprus. Situated on the south west coast of the island, it is also one of the most stunningly picturesque places on the island. The old town and harbour area are known for romantic strolls whilst the sun is setting. The tombs of the kings are 2 miles from Paphos. Don’t forget your camera!
 

Aphrodite’s Rock 

Your visit to Cyprus is not complete without a visit to Aphrodite’s Rock. This is a rock formation near the city of Paphos on the western part of the island. 
 
A must-see sight and an amazing place for a swim. There is a direct bus from Paphos’ harbour and it is worth including a visit to the city of Paphos. If you are looking for a romantic stroll at night this is the one! 
 

Caledonia Falls 

If you prefer to stay away from the sea then Cyprus is still for you. You can visit some of the spectacular mountain resorts. Cyprus is not really a ski destination as there is not enough snow, if any, during the winter months.
 
But, the mountains provide a great hiking escape from the heat. Caledonia falls is perhaps the most famous waterfall, located in the middle of the Caledonia nature trail along the Kryos Potamos river. The trail joins the village of Platres with Troodos Square.
 

Nicosia City and the Green Line 

Nicosia the northern part of the city, along with the northern part of the island, is under military occupation by Turkey. There are no beaches but you will find an array of designer shops along with patisseries and great food to try. 
 
You can walk up to the UN Buffer zone, known as the ‘Green Line’ which runs through the city and divides the island. You can cross over to the ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’ (unrecognized by any Nation except for Turkey) for those who wish to do so.
 

Kalopanayiotis 

A holiday to Cyprus should incorporate a visit to some of its amazing small local villages such as the one found at Kalopanayiotis. 
 
Forty five traditional homes have been lovingly restored to accommodate modern needs, but still manage to maintain their original charm. The area maintains 2 natural springs frequented by locals and visitors alike so pop along and get an understanding of what traditional Cypriot life is and was like for many who call the island home.
 

Limassol

The seaside town of Limassol is not known for its beaches, but what it lacks in sand it makes up for in fun in its range of entertainment, dining, and sightseeing options. The city also hosts the country’s largest Carnival parade every spring with thousands attending. An ideal location for a Cyprus holiday in 2022. 
 

Polemidia National Forest Park

Natural beauty can be found all over Cyprus, but if you are looking to be engulfed with the beauty of nature, Polemidia National Forest Park is where you need to be. This park is full of nature trails and if you like to take photos this is the place!
 
There is a children’s playground area and many picnic areas throughout the park. Polemidia National Forest Park also has plenty of sports opportunities and a museum of natural history. Great for a day of fun and adventure for all when on holiday to Cyprus.
 

Coral Bay 

Coral Bay is a great beach location with sandy shores. You can easily access Coral Bay via car or public transport and it is a really popular spot for families with young children as the bay’s location allows for some waves, but the current remains really calm when compared to other beach areas. Perhaps try Coral Bay for your next family holiday destination! 
 
As we come to the end of just some of the beautiful places to visit in Cyprus let’s not forget Meze food in Cyprus. Food is a very big part of Greek Cypriot culture. They love to eat healthy and use home grown ingredients which are second to none. The best way to sample the cuisine is simply to visit a Taverna, a restaurant which serves local food, order Mezedes. Mezedes is a vast variety of different picky foods. You can opt for a fish meze meat meze a combination of both, vegetarian or even vegan. Just ask for your choice of Meze and you will be sure to be accommodated.  They will serve many dishes so can sample all the delights. Just make sure you go with an empty stomach!
