If you are looking for a sunny island with nice beaches, landscapes, history, nightlife I would recommend Cyprus! Cyprus offers you everything, from mountains to beaches, from tasty Cypriot dishes, from quite bars to wild nightlife.
Below I’ve gathered some FREE things you can do in Cyprus so make sure to take advantage of these if you are visiting this beautiful island. These are some of my selections and I’m sure there’s a lot more free things you can do.
1.Take a walk around Paphos Harbour & Castle
The castle is located on the edge of the harbour and a nice walk is enough to relax and enjoy the beautiful scene.
5.Take photos of the EDRO III Freetown Shipwreck at Peyia Sea Caves
This commercial ship was forced onto the rocks in Peyia during severe weather conditions. Since then it has raised a huge interest with many locals and tourists who come here to see the ship and take photos.
