Explore Cyprus

This isle of Aphrodite has a fine year-round climate and rich, cultural heritage for curious visitors to unveil. Many civilisations have occupied the island and points of interest mark their presence and include Crusader castles, Venetian castles and abbeys, and Byzantine churches.

As the island is still divided in two (right through the capital!), you can gain two different perspectives on this history from guides on both sides of the island.

Turkish North Cyprus is one of the Mediterranean’s forgotten corners and is still largely untouched by the package holiday industry, making it the ideal destination for the discerning traveller looking for something off-the-beaten-track.

As soon as you enter these undeveloped areas you gain an immediate appreciation for the raw beauty of the landscape. The rugged Karpas Peninsula is home to remote sandy beaches, wild donkeys wandering the pine-covered hills and a sprawl of historic churches. Other hidden gems include Byzantine-built Buffavento Castle, the disused Antiphonitis monastery, the ancient city of Lambousa and the pretty Bellapais abbey.

Southern Cyprus is sometimes solely as a party destination for Brits but to dismiss it would be to miss out on everything it has to offer, such as picturesque villages, the stunning Troödos Mountains, ancient Curium with its Greek theatre and the museums and palace of the capital, Nicosia.
