Oh the many places we didn't get to see when we visited countries like Italy, Greece, and Turkey in the Mediterranean. We'll continue to cling to our dream cruise that will take us to those regions we've yet to see, including Cyprus. Catherine from Direct Holidays shares an article with us about considering a trip to Cyprus for that much-needed getaway![divider_5px]

Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, this beautiful island has had a turbulent past, but that doesn’t take away from the beauty Cyprus possesses, making it a perfect place for holidaymakers to explore and relax in. With plenty of cheap holidays to Cyprus available online, you can sample what the island has to offer too. Benefit from some fantastic offers by grabbing a last minute deal for an Easter jaunt or save yourself for the summer months when the sun is shining at its best.

Many of the popular tourist spots can be found in the south of the island, providing an excellent climate and phenomenal beaches to relax on. With approximately 3000 hours of sunshine each year, you can benefit from a Mediterranean subtropical climate, providing hot summers and mild winters. Whenever you decide to travel though, rest assured it won’t be as cold as it is in the UK!

Popular with sun worshippers and culture vultures, the island has many appealing qualities which ensure that visitors flock to Cyprus year after year. Whether you yearn to discover any of the historical sites such as Neolithic villages or medieval castles and learn about the history of the islands, or you prefer to sit back and watch the world go by on its delightful coastline, the choice is yours.

As far as resorts are concerned, you have plenty to choose from, including the culture-rich Paphos and the party capital of Ayia Napa. The family friendly resort of Protaras in the south eastern corner is a quieter alternative to these heaving resorts, giving you all a chance to spend some quality time together (and a better chance of sleeping well).

Whether you choose to stay in resort or venture further to explore the beauty that the island possesses is completely up to you. One thing’s for sure though, choosing a trip to Cyprus will provide you with a memorable experience and a break that’s well deserved.
