With a complex mixture of Turkish and Greek influences, the island of Cyprus could be that Mediterranean getaway you’ve always dreamed of. With spectacular archaeological sites like Kourion to explore, the island offers a host of destinations that make it a cut above the average sun and sand holiday!
Some of the cities you should definitely put on your itinerary include Lefkosia, Lenesos, Larnaka and Paphos. Cyprus also offers travellers an unrivalled beach-clubbing experience in the form of Ayia Napa. Found in the south-east of the island, there you can enjoy pristine beaches, warm waters and some of the best clubs in the world!
History buffs, on the other hand, can look up the beautiful Tombs of the Kings, the Adonis Baths Waterfalls and a host of other archaeological locations in and around Paphos. If you time your travel well, you can also sample one of Cyprus’s festivals held in Limassol, such as the Carnival just before Easter or the Wine Festival in September.
Any holiday to this destination would be incomplete without an in-depth look (and taste) of the traditional Cypriot dishes and delicacies. You can start out with meze, move on to afelia, sample the fresh calamari or tease your taste buds with some local feta cheese! Other dishes worth mentioning include halloumi, horiatiki salata and Kalamata olives.
Adventure sports are another part of the travel allure that is Cyprus. With mountain biking, sea kayaking, snorkelling jet skiing and sailing being just a few on the list available, there is definitely something for every kind of adrenaline seeker out there. Travelling to exotic destinations, though, can be risky. No matter how hard you try, accidents may happen when you least expect it. To help address that uncertainty, all Flexicover policies come with a list of sporting and recreational activities that are covered at no additional cost, so whether you find yourself up a rock face or in the Mediterranean, we offer support at the first sign of any emergency.
