It’s easy to fall in love with Aphrodite`s isle, where legend has it the goddess of love arose from the waves, and discover ancient sites, wonderful beaches and crystal clear waters.
The best holiday beaches are found around Ayia Napa and Protaras, where warm turquoise seas lap gently shelving sands. Water sports, including water skiing and even kite-surfing are offered at the main resorts along with fun-filled water parks and boat trips.
Celebrate the feast of Kataklysmos (the Greek Orthodox Whitsun); although celebrated throughout Cyprus, there is special enthusiasm in Larnaca, where crowds throng the shore for water sports, singing, dancing, eating and drinking.
Recommended beaches include Geroskipou, Dasoudi, Larnaca, Governor`s, Dassoudi Beach and Germasogeia (the latter two are at Limassol).
