The third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is a colourful place filled with myths and magical beaches. In Paphos, you'll find amazing stretches of beach wherever you look and clear, warm waters. Ancient history sits on the doorstep of the city too, explore the Tombs of the Kings built thousands of years ago and Kato Paphos Archaeological Park with its amphitheatre and Roman mosaics. Further east in Limassol, you’ll get to walk along beaches that unfold along translucent waters, then unearth the extraordinary history of Cyprus by discovering medieval fortresses, like Kolossi Castle and the ancient city of Kourion. Between Paphos and Limassol, you'll find Pissouri which draws visitors to its celebrated beaches. Don't forget to visit Petra tou Romiou, rumoured to be the birthplace of Aphrodite in Greek mythology. Known as Aphrodite's Rock, this pebble beach is as divine as the goddess herself. The largest mountain range in Cyprus, the Troodos Mountains, soar over Byzantine monasteries and churches which nestle in sweeping valleys. Luxury resorts here are great for walks, bike rides, panoramic views, wine tastings and theouxa spa treatments that use natural sulphur spring water. The mountain range is also home to the famous Mount Olympus peak, where you can sail down four exciting ski slopes.
