Nissi Beach

Located in one of Cyprus' most active and exciting areas, Nissi Beach is a slice of luxury where you'll never be lost for fun. Sun, sea, sand and relaxation await if you choose a holiday package to Cyprus at this fantastic resort.


There's so much to see, do and discover on Cyprus holidays – from the history of Larnaca to parties in Ayia Napa. But if you're one of those travellers who seek seclusion instead, you'll enjoy the serenity of Pernera.


Located at the southeastern tip of Cyprus, the welcoming town of Protaras has plenty to offer divers, holidaymakers, foodies and families, with a fantastic mix of things to do and see.


A place of immense historic significance, Larnaca is the third largest city in Cyprus – and those seeking the true Cypriot experience need look no further than the vibrancy of this ancient destination.

Ayia Napa

Synonymous with foam parties, firewater and all-night clubbing, cheap holidays to Ayia Napa connect you to the hub of nightlife on Cyprus. However, this south-eastern resort offers much more than just happy hour and hangovers. It's brimming with beaches and watersports, plus has a waterpark, coral reef diving and bungee jumping opportunities.

There ain't no party like a Cypriot party

Festivities don’t get much bigger than they do in Ayia Napa. It’s safe to say this popular resort has put Cyprus on the partying map with its brightly lit strip packed with late-closing bars and nightclubs. Drawing in thousands of revellers throughout the year, there’s no such thing as a quiet night in this lively spot.

However, this doesn’t reflect all nightlife around the Larnaca region. In fact, when you head to the resorts of Protaras and Larnaca evenings take on a much slower pace. Yet despite its low-key feel, there is still plenty going on, but many of the bars are much more family-orientated. And then there’s Pernera which has a much more traditional feel and is perfect for those looking for quieter evenings with its relaxed bars and live music venues.

Mouth-watering cuisine

The Cypriot people are very passionate about their food, and it certainly shows in their cooking. If you travel to indulge, your appetite is bound to increase once you see what’s on offer on a holiday to Larnaca. When it comes to cuisine, expect to be presented with menus serving everything from tasty halloumi cheese dishes to flavoursome moussaka and the freshest fish platters.

Although Cypriot cuisine is available just about everywhere when you venture away from the local tavernas and restaurants, you’ll also find plenty of intentional choices on your Larnaca holidays, especially in the resorts of Protaras and Ayia Napa. These resorts have a mixture of everything from Thai to Italian and British eateries, so you can still enjoy a taste of home, despite being thousands of miles away.

Lanarca's century-old history

There’s no denying it, Cyprus has a rich and varied history, and the country’s Lanarca region has played a huge part in it. Most of the region’s ancient sights can be found in Cyprus’ oldest city, Lanarca. Home to the Church of St. Lazarus, one of the finest examples of Byzantine architecture and stacked with museums including Larnaka District Medieval Museum, Pierides Museum and Kyriazis Medical Museum, you can’t come here without delving into Cyprus’ century-old history.

Close to Lanarca you’ll also find Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque, this is the main Muslim pilgrimage site of Cyprus. Today, it is considered one of the most important places of worship for Muslims, after the likes of Mecca, Medina in Saudi Arabia and Al Aksha in Jerusalem. The city’s old Turkish Quarter is also worth a visit as it gives visitors a feel of what things were like back in ancient Cyprus with its old houses and craft shops.
