Beach time with lots of sun and Cypriot culture
The port town of Larnaca in Southern Cyprus is famous for its lively nightlife right by the sea and is also the oldest city on the Mediterranean island. This fact is apparent not only in Larnaca’s wealth of old buildings, but also in the pride the residents take in their city’s ancient history.
Around Larnaca and the nearby Ayia Napa you will find beautiful sandy beaches that invite you to swim, snorkel and relax. The year-round mild climate allows for relaxing holidays in Cyprus at any time of the year. The bathing holidays should be between June and October - otherwise the water temperature can drop below 20°C. Those who prefer to stay dry can go on a discovery tour in the hinterland or enjoy a game of golf.
