Blue skies, warm water, and white sandy beaches are reason enough to visit this ancient island. The best way to see this Mediterranean gem? A road trip through Cyprus!
It’s hard to visit Cyprus without making plans to come back before you even leave! If you like crystal clear water, white sand beaches, Mediterranean food, and a cocktail or two, you’ll love this little island.
Boasting more than 300 days of blue skies each year, Cyprus is truly a dream for sun worshippers. The temperatures are perfect in early May, but summer temperatures can be brutal. Autumn and Spring are definitely the best times to visit.
Cyprus is an ideal location for a road trip. The island is packed with hidden gems and off-the-beaten-track finds, plus car rentals are easy and affordable. You can contact us and arrange to pick up your car at the airport, then return it wherever you find the most convenient, or have it delivered to your hotel.
Each of the cities on the island has its own charms, so you can pick and choose where you want to go. You can drive all the way across Cyprus in just a few hours, so don’t limit yourself to just one place! You can choose to drive between the cities and stay in a new town every few nights, or base yourself in one of the cities and explore the island in a series of day trips.
When driving in between Limassol and Paphos make sure to stop and visit Aphrodite’s Rock, which is particularly gorgeous at sunset.
Nearby are the ancient sites of Kourion, Tombs of the Kings, and Kato Paphos Archaelogical Park. On the other side of Paphos you can visit the Adonis Baths. There’s a double waterfall which makes for a lovely view, and the chilly pools provide the perfect opportunity to refresh yourself in the afternoon heat. The water is believed to have medicinal properties.
Whether you’re interested in exploring the 10,000 year history or just soaking up some time in the sun, Cyprus is a destination worth visiting!
