Luxury Cyprus Holidays
It might be a cliché, but Cyprus is definitely one of those places with something to keep everyone happy. Beach lover? You've got some of the best stretches of sand in the Med here, as well as some lovely shingle beaches. History buff? The island's archaeological sites date back to the Bronze Age. Be sure to visit the Tombs of the Kings in Paphos, and the 16th-century walls and cathedral-turned-mosque in Nicosia. Explorer? You'll find walking trails, cycling routes and off-the-map hamlets in the Troodos Mountains, and wildlife trails around the Akamas Peninsula (find out more in our guide to Cyprus beyond the beaches).
Cyprus is spot on for romantics, too - Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was supposedly born in Paphos, Richard the Lionheart married Queen Berengaria here, and Mark Anthony presented Cleopatra with the island as a token of his affection.
The weather is another tick in the island's book. Thanks to its south-east Med location, it basks in more than 300 days of sunshine every year, with hot, dry summers and mild winters.

Family holidays in Cyprus
Cyprus is a fantastic option if you've got little ones in tow. Aside from the usual (great beaches, first-rate family hotels, wall-to-wall sunshine), our Family Travel Experts really rate the island for the ease of getting around. Wide, flat promenades are brilliant for buggies, while English-style road signs and driving on the left take the hassle out of hiring a car. And although the flight time is one of the longest for a European destination, it means you get much warmer weather outside the summer season.

- One of my favourite parts of visiting Cyprus is the amazing cakes and sweets they have. Make sure you try sugar-dusted almonds with local honey. More from Louise
