Airport transfers in Cyprus
Cyprus is such a versatile holiday hotspot that you can plan a number of different holiday types dependent on the time of year. Looking to top up your tan on the beach? The island is yours from June until September. August is hot and crowded, and suitably more expensive to visit. If you want a little more peace with ample good weather, October to May are quieter but can threaten rain. More interested in white powder than white sand? Why not ski on Mount Olympus? The Troodos Mountains offer a paradoxical treat of morning skiing followed by afternoon beach relaxation. Something for everyone in the space of a day!
Cyprus is part Turkish part Greek, and Limassol is a magnet in the Turkish area. Experienced voices will tell you that Limassol is best seen on foot. Tread the pavements and sample the atmosphere, breathe it in and enjoy the architecture. The old markets allow the opportunity to absorb a traditional vibe and do some shopping. A couple of beaches flank the town and offer differing experiences. The Governors beach to the east is a good swimming spot and is safe for children. It’s a bus ride away through the countryside and has a choice of restaurants. In the west, The Lady’s Beach requires a car for access and is not as suitable for swimming. The location is beautiful and unspoilt.
History and architecture purists will be captivated by Paphos. There are points of interest at every turn and the buildings, monuments and stories are fascinating. The nearby Coral Bay is a simply gorgeous beach with soft, sandy beaches. Swimming here is safe and water sports are encouraged. Local restaurants provide a taste of locally caught, delicious fish. Sadly there are no local buses to and from Paphos airport, so why not let TaxiFinders.com take away the headache of getting from airport to accommodation?
The party is well and truly at Ayia Napa, the world famous clubbers’ paradise. The 24 hour nightlife and vibrant feel means Ayia Napa is possibly not the ideal choice for a relaxing break, but that is not to say the scenery isn’t majestic. White sand beaches and clear waters appeal as much as the nightclubs, and watersports are again plentiful. If you hit the shops, watch out for the ‘designer goods’ on show as they might not be all they seem! Check that label! Cafes, bars and restaurants provide people-watching opportunities.

Head to the south of the island to Larnaca down on the coast. Vast, wide, white sand beaches are tickled by the Mediterranean water. The harbour is like a postcard picture and shops and restaurants are plentiful. Adventure seekers can don the scuba gear and dive the wreck of the Zenobia. The nearby historic village of Choirokitia is pleasant and at 9,000 years old is a window to the island’s history. It takes around an hour to walk around and if you venture a little out of town you can take quad bikes out into the nearby mountains and countryside.
The other pole of the island, the north, is home to Kyrenia. Ancient walls and towers encircle whitewashed houses and churches. Attractive beaches and a lovely castle neighbour the fishing harbour. Kyrenia has real charm.
If you’re willing to step outside the busier towns in Cyprus, you’ll get a real treat in the form of the countryside and historical sights.
