If you’re looking for a Mediterranean gem to please the whole family, Cyprus could be your perfect escape.
For family holidays to Cyprus, this stunning island offers a wealth of fabulous resorts and a long list of wonderful things to see and do. Of course, for many visitors, it’s all about the beach – and Cyprus certainly doesn’t disappoint! Expect long swathes of golden sand, beautiful bays and hidden rocky coves, which offer a wonderfully diverse and beautiful beach experience. Take the kids rock pooling, or flake out on a sunbed while they splash around in the shallows with a beachball or build sandcastles under a parasol.
The island has become renowned as a bit of a clubbers’ hotspot, ever since Ayia Napa’s party scene took off several years ago. Of course, when you’ve got the kids in tow, it’s usually best to steer clear of this resort in the height of summer, as the hotels and beaches can become crowded and there are plenty of booming bars that stay open well into the early hours. Instead, why not try a different resort – like lovely Coral Bay? It’s a wonderfully quiet spot with a cracking beach not far from Paphos, and makes a great stay for families with many superb family-friendly hotels and local activities.
When it comes to getting out and about, you could hire a car and explore the stunning Troodos Mountains, perhaps stopping for a picnic to take in the dramatic mountainous scenery. Or visit the famous Aphrodite’s Rock – said to be the very place where the goddess herself stepped out of the ocean.
