Cyprus is one of few islands in the world where you can snorkel, sunbathe and ski. Expect crystal clear waters, abundant marine life and great beaches along the coast, pine forests and mountains in the centre, and great shopping with historical sites in between.
Why hire a car in Cyprus?Public transport in Cyprus is limited. Busses connect the major towns but you'll struggle to go far beyond them without your own wheels. We've made it easy to rent a hire car in either Paphos or Larnaca, so you can get your holiday on the road, hassle free, as soon as you arrive.
That all important first mile - driving out of the Airport:Whether heading out of Pahpos or Larnaca airport, driving in Cyprus is a breeze. The rules are the same as ours and they drive on the left too. Hire cars are all marked with red licence plates, so give your fellow renters a wave.
Ayia Napa is the party capital of the Mediterranean, no-one does it better
Ayia Napa is a big draw for partygoers, but in reality it accounts for only a fraction of the visitors who come to the island. Laid-back living is the order of the day across most of Cyprus.
Peace and quiet rules, but the warm air can tempt you to a vibrant town for a night out to remember.
Hospitality is as important to Cypriot culture as sunshine - expect a warm reception.
It gets hot. Really hot. Average temperatures in coastal areas stay in the mid-20s all year, but in July and September this can reach a scorching 30°C. Renting a car makes it easy to cool off, - either turn the air-conditioning up, or head inland to the Troodos Mountains where skiing is possible in the winter.
Never order the meze unless you have an elasticated waistband. This is the meal that just keeps on giving. A meze comprises of a seemingly endless supply of dishes being brought to your table throughout an evening. You will not go home to your hotel, or the UK, hungry.
King of the six-pack, Peter Andre, and singer, Tulisa Contostavlos both trace their roots back to Cyprus
Some say that the Cypriots were last in the queue to receive a gift from God. He had nothing left to give, but they persisted so he gave them intrigue. We’d say that he gave them a whole lot more than that.
