Cyprus holidays are full of sand, sun and wonderful culture all year round. This island is set in the Mediterranean Ocean, close to the west coast of Africa, meaning you can enjoy temperatures of up to 29 degrees in the summer months and 18-22 degrees for the autumn and spring half term holidays. Surrounded by golden sands and the crystal clear waters of the sea, this is the ideal place to relax and unwind or make the most of the many water sports available.
Culture lovers will find plenty to explore, including pretty cobbled streets, ancient churches and ruins. Paphos is the ideal holiday destination for families, groups and couples, with sweeping sandy beaches, three golf courses and a medieval castle. Those who prefer a relaxing break will find the Troodos Mountains the ideal mixture of activity, culture and peaceful surroundings. It’s home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites which date back to the byzantine era, monasteries, farmlands, forests, hiking trails, vineyards and much more.
Featuring family suites and villas, the Anassa Hotel is the perfect for your summer family holiday. Surrounded by open green landscape and hilltops, you will be able to make the most of this relaxing atmosphere.
Cyprus is full of sand, sea, sun and fun, making it the ideal choice for your family holidays. There are plenty of soft sandy beaches where little ones can build sandcastles while Mum and Dad relax on their loungers.
Cyprus has Greek island-style summers that warm up quickly, with temperatures sticking in the low 20s around April and May. In the middle of summer, highs are well into the 30s, and you can still get away with great beach weather (in the slightly more comfortable 20s) around September and October. Cyprus doesn’t get particularly cold; things hover in the late teens throughout winter, with the odd rain shower.
Visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Cyprus.
Most restaurants and hotel bills will include a 10% tip, so you don’t have to tip wait staff or bar staff. Even still, extra tips are always appreciated, especially if you received good service. Taxi drivers appreciate a tip; aim for about 10% of the fare.
The official languages of Cyprus are Turkish and Greek. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
