From Limassol on the south coast to Polis on the island’s north-western tip is the Paphos region of Cyprus. Most people flock to the region’s breath-taking beaches, which have white sands, edged by pam trees. Both Paphos and Limassol have retained their Mediterranean charm, with cobbled stone old towns and buzzing little cafes.
The island’s east coast is the nocturnal sister to the west. Ayia Napa has earned its stripes for being a town that knows how to let its hair down but turn your back on it and head out into the countryside and it’s a paradise for walkers and family outings.
If a beach holiday isn’t your thing, then having Nicosia as your base could be the perfect option. It is an enticing city with museums, churches, mosques, traditional restaurants and unspoilt streets to explore.
