Cyprus is an island with a long and troubled history which lasted well into the twentieth century. It is a divided country, the north belonging to Turkey and the south to Greece. Although it is easy now to travel to the north, it is the south, with its well established tourist developments, that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Located in the Mediterranean, south of Turkey, the Cyprus holiday season enjoys long months of unabated sunshine. It is a beautiful island with mountains and hills, valleys and plains, rocky coves and sandy beaches. Cyprus has interesting historic towns, charming traditional villages and is littered with archaeological remains. It has much to offer which is why cheap Cyprus holidays appeal to families, couples and groups of young singles as there are resorts to suit all ages and interests. A great choice of beaches, in both the Paphos and Larnaca area, await those with small children wielding buckets and spades. The soft sand slopes gently into clear waters giving ideal conditions for paddling and for less confident swimmers. Many of the larger beaches provide a range of water sports for the more energetic holidaymaker.
