April is dwindling to an end, all your hard work at the gym doing late night TRX sessions is paying off, now that your beach body is in full effect its time to decide where to show off your glorious body. Let Cyprus be your next destination, still within Europe, so enough to go on a budget, but far away enough to have that mediterranean heat. Cyprus is located is south of Turkey and north of Egypt, from the UK depending on which part of Cyprus you go to it works out to be a 4.5 hour trip. Depending on your budget there are so many different airlines to choose from most popular ones being Easy Jet, British Airways and Thomson Airways.
Don’t let the fact that Cyprus is an Island fool you there are so much things to and the beaches especially in the west of Cyprus are second to none. The great thing about Cyprus for us brits travelling abroad is they drive on the same side of the road as us, have the same plug sockets and the island is filled with mixed nationalities who come to work for the season, which means many people speak English. In western Cyprus depending what type of holiday you want there are few must see attractions, The Tomb of the Kings located near Paphos harbour is a UNESCO protected site, with underground tombs dating back to the 4th century. If you want to lounge by the beach almost every 10 minutes there are beautiful beaches, where you can take walks down the coast or just relax in the sunshine, the most popular beach being Coral Bay, a short trip on the bus which will only cost you 1.50 euros. Alongside this Paphos hosts a beautiful panoramic zoo including a bird sanctuary, which hosts various bird shows including an owl and parrot show.
If you are more of an athletic type then you must try out the quad biking tours which run from anywhere between 3 hours to 6, cruising around the island includes off-road tracks which lead to more ruins and other secluded beaches, including where the Turtle Bay where the turtles hatch in the season May to September. The people of Cyprus are incredibly friendly and welcoming and make you feel at home, and of course the food is freshly grilled and healthy. Make Cyprus your next European getaway you will never regret it!
