Best places to visit in Cyprus

  • Nicosia: The beautiful city of Nicosia is the capital of Cyprus and sits at the center of the island. Having been inhabited for more than 4,500 years, the city is teeming with history and fascinating architectural relics. Wander through the streets of the Nicosia Old Town by day, then spend the evening at the Merit Lefkosa Hotel & Casino and feel centuries worth of remarkable growth all in one day. 
  • Ayia Napa: For visitors coming to Cyprus for the sun and the sand, Ayia Napa has some of the most stunning beaches on the island and there is no shortage of things to do. Charter a catamaran for a day trip or book a sunset cruise. Or, if you’re hoping to take a closer look at the natural surroundings, try scuba diving or explore the caves. There are even nearby vineyards offering wine tasting. 
  • Paphos: Located in the southwest of the island, Paphos is one of the more popular places to visit in Cyprus. The city is a UNESO World Heritage Site known for its many ruins of great historic and architectural value. There are also a host of beautiful beaches right on the city's doorstep. In the southwest of the Paphos district you'll find ‘Petra tou Romiou’ – a large geological formation known as Aphrodite's birthplace.

Summer in Cyprus

With more than 400 miles of coastline, Cyprus is one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, which means it is chock-full of opportunities for a seaside adventure. While vacationing here in the summer, try scuba diving, snorkeling, renting a speed boat or joining a party cruise. If you’re interested in exploring the land, visitors can book safaris—either by jeep or buggy. For travelers seeking more tranquil activities, stroll through one of the many charming towns along the shore.
