Cyprus: Your summer destination

There's reasons why Cyprus - the third-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea behind Sardinia and leader Sicily - is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world. With more sandy beaches than you can shake a stick at and practically year-round sun, it's no wonder holidaymakers are heading to the island in their droves.

You won't find a culture comparable to the one in Cyprus as its history is divided between the Greeks and the Turkish Cypriots. This is present in its art, literature, music, cuisine and more.

As the Republic of Cyprus is a member of the European Union, holidaymakers will have no trouble changing their currency to the well-known Euro when heading over to the island. This provides ample opportunity for sunseekers to spend their hard-earned cash in the delights of Cyprus as well (nearly) everywhere else in the EU, just in case they are hopping from country to country.

While Cyprus is primarily known for its sun-drenched beaches, there's a lot more to do than just lounge around in shorts/a bikini. Cyprus' mountainous region offers hikes in both the Troodos Mountains and Akams Peninsula while explorers can visit some of Cyprus' picturesque villages on the Pitsilia Wine route. Furthermore, in the Troodos Mountains lies ten Byzantine churches - all recognised on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

That being said, if you don't fancy walking, there's always car hire in Cyprus for holidaymakers; allowing them to drive from the very left of the island to the right whilst soaking in all the island has to offer. You can even pick up your hire car at Cyprus' two airports - Larnaca and Paphos - giving holidaymakers plenty of options when it comes to driving.

It's easy to see why Cyprus has most holidaymakers in a spin - affordable, sunny and chock-a-block with culture... you'll wonder why you didn't think of Cyprus as a summer holiday destination before.
