Beach Breaks in Cyprus: Where to Stay

Visiting Cyprus

It’s quite unbelievable how much culture, history and heritage can be crammed into one relatively small Mediterranean island, but that’s not all that Cyprus holidays have to offer. While you could fill your days with tours of ancient ruins and visits to the Green Line in the island’s capital, Nicosia, there’s little need in venturing away from the beach if you don’t want to.

Beach resorts are plentiful in Cyprus, offering everything from Blue Flag beaches and watersports to golden sands and quaint tavernas. Whatever you’re hoping to achieve from your stint on the island, there will be a resort that fulfils your dreams.


From the laidback seafront to the history of the old town, Paphos offers a fantastic blend of cultural and relaxing delights. Take a wander around the medieval castle, treat yourself to a trip to the Tomb of the Kings or while away the hours on Coral Beach before taking a leisurely walk around the pretty harbour.

Ayia Napa

This resort still appeals to the reams of clubbers, with its promise of a vibrant nightlife and lazy days in the sun. Relax on Nissi Beach during the afternoons before heading into town to dance the night away.


Picturesque, tranquil and traditional, Protaras is an ideal choice for families with small children. Relax on one of the six superb beaches before sampling some of the local cuisine in the quality tavernas.


Perfect for families while also a stone’s throw away from Ayia Napa for the late night revellers, Larnaca is also home to an awesome waterpark, WaterWorld, providing plenty of thrills for all.

Whatever resort you choose to base yourself in on the island of Cyprus, you can guarantee that what awaits you is sunshine galore – a perfect excuse for a break this year.
