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 quiet 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 scenery.
Before visiting the underground catacombs there’s a tree with a lot of handkerchiefs hanged on. Hanging a personal offer on the tree, is believed to cure diseases of those who hang it, and many people, both locals and visitors still do it.
Cyprus has a lot of beautiful, stoned, villages. You should at least visit one of these and you’ll discover the traditional side of Cyprus and how it used to be years ago. For more information regarding some lovely villages that you need to visit read my article 10 Charming Cyprus Villages
There’s a lot of wineries in Cyprus that offer free wine tasting. All you have to do is just visit! There are a lot of signs on the road (to Troodos) that indicate where you can find wineries. For more information read my post Cyprus wineries worth visiting
18.See the cats at Holy Monastery of St Nicholas of the Cats located at Cape Akrotiri (Gata)
According to AtlasObscura, “When a plague of snakes almost prevented the building of what is now known as the Holy Monastery of Saint Nicholas of the Cats, the titular felines were shipped in to save the day” That’s why, when you visit, you’ll see a lot of cats here.
I’m Cypriot, with a London touch, experimenting with photography, working in marketing, love cooking, reading books, and wishing to travel the world. I currently live in Limassol, Cyprus, and try to travel as much as I can.
