It is free and takes a few minutes to complete.
Cyprus - an island of active recreation, diving is very popular here (especially near the Zenobia ferry, which is one of the four most revered underwater objects among divers around the world), golf, windsurfing, kitesurfing and fishing. On the island there are 3 large water parks, an oceanarium, a bird sanctuary, an ostrich and a donkey farm, and a show of dancing fountains. Cyprus is renowned for its historic routes and special excursion programs.
Ayia Napa. The most popular resort - almost 2.5 million tourists visit this region from April to November
Ayia Napa has turned from a fishing village into the Cypriot Riviera, where both young people and retirees come. Moreover, every tourist can find entertainment that suits his desires and pocket. Here is the famous bar and club street with about 300 themed bars and the popular 2 km long Nissi Beach.
Larnaca. The third largest city in Cyprus
Larnaca's calling card is the palm-lined Finikoudes promenade, from where a wonderful view of the bay with moored yachts opens up. There are many restaurants and sidewalk cafes where you can enjoy the magnificent seascape with lunch or a glass of wine. In the east of the city, a new tourist zone has been created with comfortable hotels standing right on the sandy beaches. Larnaca is an ideal destination for budget and family holidays.
Protaras. A city with sandy beaches and picturesque rocky bays
Protaras is a small town with a very beautiful promenade area and a large number of shops - just created for families and children. During the day, life in Protaras is quiet and unhurried, but in the evening the city comes alive. Music is heard from everywhere, be it romantic bouzouki melodies coming from taverns, or the modern rhythms of popular nightclubs. Sightseeing: Cape Greco, pirate caves, lovers' bridge, blue lagoon, dancing fountains show and the Church of the Prophet Elijah.
Limassol. Cheerful cosmopolitan city
The two ports of Limassol - old and new - have turned the city into the main sea gateway to Cyprus, a center of foreign trade, on which the economy of the entire republic depends to a great extent. The beaches are mostly sandy. Sand, due to its high silicon content, has a grayish tint and is considered beneficial for the skin. Of the sights worth visiting are the Kolossi Castle, towering on the Episkopi Plain, the Medieval Museum and the Archaeological Museum. In the vicinity of Limassol are the ruins of the most ancient city of Cyprus - Kourion. Children will love the Fasouri Watermania Waterpark and Zoo. In addition, the city is the center of winemaking. Wine can be enjoyed in numerous bars and restaurants in Limassol.
Pathos. The city is located in the greenest part of the island, next to the protected area of Cyprus
In the homeland of Aphrodite - in Paphos - there are important sights of the ancient period: mosaics and royal tombs. At the initiative of the European Union, Paphos was declared the European Capital of Culture 2017. The city fully justifies its name: it is the most elite resort on the island, where mostly wealthy people rest. The resort is not focused on children's recreation, but there are many cozy bays and secluded beaches, restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs.
