Things to Do on Your Next Vacation to Cyprus

A list of things to do when you are planning your vacation to the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. A brief introduction to each of the cities (Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol, Paphos, Famagusta) in Cyprus along with the main attractions and must places to visit. Great if you plan for a relaxed vacation.

Cyprus is an island in the Meditteranean sea and one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe.

It is divided in six major cities with Nicosia being the capital of Cyprus. Apart from Nicosia all other cities are surrounded by the sea!

In Nicosia you can mainly do your shopping, since all the major brands and stores are located in the capital. The two main shopping roads is Makariou Avenue and Ledras street. In both you can find anything from shops and shoe stores to restaurantst and fast food. Ledras is in the old part of Nicosia and is for pedestrians only, making it great for families. Here you can also visit the rest of the oldtown with the small alleys and narrow streets and buy something from the various souvenir shops.

You can also visit the Mall of Cyprus, situated at the entrance of Nicosia with a variety of shops and restaurants.

Next city is Larnaca, and is approximately 30 minutes by car from Nicosia. Larnaca is famous for the long seaside pedestrian road with the palm trees. There are a lot of bars, coffee shops, restaurants and gelaterias, on the right side of this road where you can relax and enjoy the view. Of course you can go to the beach for a swim, try the watersports or simply get a tan!

Limassol, the second city in size after Nicosia, is just a 30 minute drive from Larnaca (45 minutes from Nicosia) is right on the sea and is the city closest to the Troodos mountain. Limassol is not famous for its beaches, but is sure famous for the variety of its night life and restaurants. The Curium amphitheater (13th century BC) is also worth a visit and is one of the most well preserved ancient monuments in Cyprus.

Paphos is located another half an hour from Limassol (1:15 from Nicosia). You should not miss the giant rock in the sea, near which godess Aphrodite was said to emerge from. Also a visit to Aphrodite's bath in the Latsi area should be definetely in your list. In Paphos down town you can take a walk along the harbour with many shops, restaurants and coffee shops and see the Castle (13th century) at the end.

Last but not least is Famagusta and is approximately 30 minutes from Larnaca and 50 from Nicosia.

Famagusta is famous for the crystal clear sea and blue flag beaches in the Protaras area and for the immersive night life in Agia Napa, where famous DJs from all over the world come to perform in the various clubs.

Kyrenia is the last city of Cyprus, but unfortunately is it is illegaly occupied from Turkey after they invaded the island in 1974.
