Well, it’s pretty obvious: With its Mediterranean looks, a sun-drenched climate throughout the year and inviting culture, there’s plenty reasons why someone to visit this amazing island, Cyprus.

Cypriot people are known for their hospitality and friendly nature. Anywhere you go on the island you should expect a warm welcome. Especially if you happen to be in a village, it’s very common to be invited to a Cypriot’s house for a coffee. Talk to a local, they will provide you a lot of information.

From its blue water beaches, its mountains, natural sea caves, waterfalls, salt lakes, there’s a lot of natural beauty to see and explore.
Food & Drink
Mixing the best of Cypriot cuisine, Cyprus provides you the best tastes from fresh seafood, souvlakia (barbeque) local produce including olives, halloumi, shioushioukkos, all delicious. I think my next post should about Cypriot cuisine. Cyprus is one of the world’s oldest wine-producing regions.
From the quiet, clean sands of Pissouri Bay to the party atmosphere in Ayia Napa (Nissi Beach), the crystal clear waters in Protaras there’s a great mixture of sand and pebble beach to choose from.
Historical Sights to see
Cyprus has a rich and exciting history, with a number of unique and ancient sights for you to explore. Visit the old Tombs of the Kings or the amphitheatre in Paphos, and then learn about the island’s many, important archaeological discoveries at the Nicosia museum.
I’ve taken hundreds of photos capturing the Cyprus sunset, especially in Paphos. Make sure you don’t miss it.
Cyprus provides you a lot of options in terms of nightlife. Go out in Ayia Napa, a loud district or Mackenzy in Larnaca, have a drink in Paphos, don’t forget Limassol, Saripolou square in the old Town or at the Limassol Marina, or maybe wonder around the old Nicosia Town where you’ll find a lot of nice bars.
