The island nation of Cyprus has been at the crossroads of European culture for centuries, and it remains sadly divided today, with the Green Line separating Turkish north from Greek south - with remnants of past civilisations giving the land plenty of historical sights.
Coastal walks are an obvious draw, with the sandy beach at Avmidou a favourite spot, holidays are a dream. The Troodos Mountains, the heart of Cyprus, rise just to the north of Limassol and offer a good range of marked trails for those wanting to get up close and personal with nature on their Cyprus holiday.
Most holidays to Cyprus take advantage of the island’s easy-going, modern towns along the south coast. This magnificent stretch is one long succession of shimmering, emerald coves, hidden grottoes and world-class resorts. There are plenty of historical sights for those interested enough to explore. The beach, the bars, and the island’s towns are bustling and full of character
