Living in Cyprus

Cyprus
Home of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, Cyprus is also known as The Island of Love. With an area of 9,251 square kilometers, it is the third largest island in the Mediterranean; lying next to Israel, Egypt and Greece. Cyprus encompasses citrus and olive groves, pine-forested mountains and some of Europe's cleanest beaches. Also known as a photographers’ dream due to its exquisite landscapes, variety of migrating birds, crystal clear waters and stretches of golden beach, this is an island of great scenic beauty. With its intriguing history and mythological wonders, Cyprus is a country with a character and traditions all of its own.

Towns
The capital of the country, Nicosia, lies in the centre and is the administrative hub and the seat of government. Limassol lies on the south coast of Cyprus and is the country's second largest city. Larnaca, on the southeast, is one of the oldest cities in the world, but also has a modern tourist centre with good shopping facilities. The tourist capital of Cyprus, with mild climate and beautiful countryside, is Paphos, which has attracted visitors to this southwestern coastal town throughout history. Last but not least, the well-known seaside tourist resorts in the northeast coastal region - Protaras and Ayia Napa -have gained great attention and credit for their beaches and amenities for all generations, young, older and just young-at heart.

Villages
Every village has a unique charm. The mountains of Troodos, 2000 meters above sea level, are sure to take your breath away. Hidden away in the mountains you will find traditional lace-making villages and craftsmen in filigree silver along with homemade honey and sweets.

Whether you’re in the villages or the resorts - from riding the kamikaze at Water World to horse riding or golf, there is a wide variety of things to keep you occupied….

Climate
The climate on Cyprus is typically Mediterranean, with long, dry summers and short, rainy winters. The average annual temperature is 19°C, but in summer, it can reach over 40°C. Cyprus boasts an average of 340 days of sunshine a year, making it a prime holiday destination all year round. Summer begins in March and stretches through to mid November. The winter is short and mild and autumn brings blue skies and a high sun with a cool breeze.
