There's an island for everyone! You'll find deserted sandy beaches within easy reach of your flip-flops (those on the Karpas peninsula are a delight) and lively seaside resorts: Agia Napa for dancing the night away, Paphos for family holidays or the area around Polis if you're looking for a quieter holiday destination.

You'll also find peace and tranquillity in the Troodos, the mountainous heart of the island, home to cedars and mouflons. A magnificent natural setting to explore on foot along the footpaths or by car to discover the Byzantine chapels, one of the wonders of the island.
