Desperate for an island getaway? Flights to Cyprus are the perfect way to escape everyday life and indulge in a week or two of sun, sea and sand. There’s even more to the island than beach relaxation, so be sure not to miss Cyprus’ best bits.
Take a tour of the Cyprus Wine Museum
Drinking wine is a must on holiday, so why not make a day of it? Be sure to pay a visit to the Cyprus Wine Museum to learn about Cyprus’ long history of winemaking and the part that island played in putting European wine on the map. Most importantly, you’ll also get the chance to sample the wine and see what you think for yourself. There are also wineries in the surrounding Limassol area so there’s plenty of wine for everyone to enjoy!
Go to the home of the brandy sour
Troodos is the largest mountain range in Cyprus and is reportedly the home of Cyprus’ most loved cocktail, the brandy sour. King Farouk of Egypt regularly visited the mountains and the hotel he stayed in created the cocktail just for him so that other people wouldn’t suspect him of drinking alcohol – or at least, that’s how the story goes. Visit the mountains for a tasty cocktail and views over some of the world’s most stunning national parks.
Visit Cyprus’ most exciting fashion boutique
Cyprus may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of the fashion map of the world, but it’s still home to some fantastic fashion boutiques. Out of them all, Cara is by far the most exciting. Some of the most interesting pieces that have been featured recently are the Stella Jean hand painted dress and the Paul Andrew Zenadia cut-out pump in black suede and mesh.
Explore an 80’s shipwreck
Ever fancied scuba diving and exploring the sea’s hidden depths? Take a trip to Larnaca and you can enjoy one of the Mediterranean’s most fascinating dives. You’ll get the opportunity to witness rare and beautiful sea life and the Zenobia shipwreck, a Swedish ship which sank in 1980. There are daily dives down to the wreck where you can swim around the ship’s upper cargo deck, accommodation section and restaurant which remains largely as it was when it sank.
