Cyprus is known as Aphrodites Island because according to Greek mythology, this is where the goddess of love was born. Anyone wanting blue skies and sunshine will certainly love all that Cyprus has to offer.
For sunseekers, Cyprus has miles of beautiful coastline , with sandy beaches, good watersports and modern beach resorts like Paphos and Limassol, in addition to the quieter, more traditional alternatives of Polis, Latchi and Coral Bay. Away from the coastline the landscape changes, rising to the Troodos Mountains, where the cool air is fragranced with eucalyptus and pine. Many an hour can be spent here, either exploring the churches and monasteries or taking a nature trail to enjoy the outstanding beauty of the region. In Paphos the area is very popular with English and Ex Pats from the UK - making the local area feel like a home from home.
