Cyprus Winter Holidays 2020/2021
The legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, Cyprus is a beautiful land of undulating contours bathed in almost luminous sunshine where glittering Mediterranean waters lap golden shores. Inland, rocky plains give way to hills and ‘kokkinokhoria’, or ‘red villages’, so called because of the red-tinged local soil. Punctuated by windmills, these sleepy towns offer a fascinating glimpse into everyday Cypriot life and stand in real contrast to the effervescent coastal resorts of Protaras and Ayia Napa - the latter of which has earned itself an international reputation for great nightlife and stands shoulder to shoulder with Ibiza as a premier Mediterranean clubbing destination.
Blessed with year-round sunshine, you’ll need every hour of the long sunny days to explore this fabulous island and experience all it has in store for you. Visit beautiful villages nestled among rich vineyards and sample delicious Cypriot wine that tastes of the sun. Relax on one of the glorious golden beaches or dive to explore fascinating shipwrecks in the crystal-clear sea.
For a long stay or a short break, Cyprus is the perfect winter destination with its warm climate and sandy beaches.
The start of a new year can seem a little dreary and with the temperatures in January very much on the chilly side, we highly recommend jetting off to a wonderful location! With that in mind, a trip to Cyprus is just what you need – spend some much needed time under the Mediterranean sun and enjoy a taste of summer 6 months ahead of time!
