Cyprus is an island country in the Mediterranean with ancient cities, pristine beaches, mountains and vineyards, a combination that has been attracting travellers for decades. After experiencing financial crises in recent years, Cyprus is back on the map, with elegant waterfront cities like Limassol boasting new contemporary arts scenes, and Nicosia, the capital city, playing its part offering nightlife and museums in abundance. Brightsun Travel has all inclusive holidays to Cyprus, making the most of its urban and natural landscapes. Starting in Nicosia you could roam world-class galleries and museums, like the AG Leventis Gallery and The Cyprus Museum, which will take you through Cyprus’ romantic history and captivating legends. You could go on a trip back in time in North Nicosia, the Old City, or simply take a traditional Turkish bath at the Hamam Omerye. At night, the city comes alive with trendy cocktail bars and sophisticated clubs, where you can try Cyprus’ local wine. Unknown to many, Cyprus produces one of the oldest wines in the world, the Commandaria, with its Troodos Mountains providing the perfect growing conditions.
Then on to Limassol on the other side of the island, a place in Cyprus where you will find luxury resorts and a dramatic old town, where you can explore castles dating back centuries. But Limassol’s star attraction is its seafront, with a beautiful promenade lined with palm trees, a new marina, beautiful gardens and a public beach. Limassol is also full of restaurants serving fresh fish daily, plus hip bars and clubs. Leaving Cyprus’ urban centres, another world awaits, with beaches offering spectacular water sports adventures, incredible vineyards, historical sites and mountains and meadows perfect for those long hiking tours. Head to the Troodos Mountains and you could climb to the top of Mount Olympus, or simply explore it’s pretty mountain villages, medieval churches and spectacular scenery. The Karpas Peninsula is the place to go to get off the beaten track in Cyprus, and discover deserted beaches, like Golden Beach, where you are more likely to see a nesting turtle than another tourist. Cyprus is, in our opinion, one of the most underrated islands in the Mediterranean.
