The Larnaca region is a superb option for families with a selection of family-friendly resorts including Protaras, which offers sandy beaches and shallow waters ideal for paddling.

Paphos is a superb choice, combining pristine beaches with historic delights such as the fascinating Tomb of the Kings. Take a stroll along ancient alleys and uncover a slice of Cypriot history before stopping off for an ice cream or a tasty lunch in the quaint tavernas, providing something for even the fussiest of eaters.
