Top 5 Things not to miss in Cyprus

Cyprus offers an incredible number of things to do for its visitors and residents. To make your trip to Cyprus more convenient, our team of immigration experts prepared a list of Top 5 Things that you can’t miss in Cyprus. 

Located in the eastern Mediterranean sea, the island offers famous archeological sites like Curium near Limassol and Tombs of the Kings in Paphos, as well as luxury thalassotherapy spas, many water sport activities, mountain hiking, and nature trails. There are an endless variety of things to do, from snorkeling or diving to relaxing in nature and even skiing in the Troodos Mountains. Find our list of Top 5 Things not to miss in Cyprus below.

Enjoy a Boat Day

Our team definitely suggests enjoying a day on the boat in the waters around Cyprus. As the island is experiencing a growing number of marinas, we suggest visiting the shiny new ones at Limassol, Latchi, Paphos, and Larnaca. This type of yachting became really popular, that why most of the island’s beaches and especially those around cities like Ayia Napa and Protaras, offer a lot of small boats for hire. 

Discover Trails in the Troodos Mountains

For more active Cyprus visitors, we suggest taking a hiking day and discover trails in the Troodos Mountains. Whether it’s a slow relaxing walk you fancy or a far more challenging and adventurous trail, these mountains offer a suitable route for you. Troodos Mountains hiking area is one of the most popular ones, including the Caledonia Trail and the Kryos Potamas. All of them offer incredible scenic views.

Visit Thalassotherapy Spa Centre

Being famous for Thalassotherapy, Cyprus offers some of the finest smart-spa centers with baths, jet showers, sauna rooms, and massages. Most of the thalassotherapy centres can be easily found in the Cyprus 5-star hotels, including the Anassa

Explore Cyprus History

A massively important part of Cyprus’s charm is its incredible history. Archeological sites are still found on the island from the Neolithic Age, from around 8200-3900 BC. We suggest visiting the Mosaics of Paphos and Tombs of the Kings in Paphos and Kourion and an ancient city of Amathous in Limassol.

Caves, See Shoals and Shipwrecks

For diving and swimming enthusiasts, Mann’s Solutions recommends going to Zenobia – one of the world’s most famous dive sites, which is approximately 43m deep. Some other famous sites like the shipwrecks of Lady Thetis and Consdandis, Vera-K, and Ektimon are also worth visiting. If snorkeling is more your thing than visiting Amphorae Caves, St George’s Island and Devil’s Head off the Akamas Peninsula, Manidjin Island off Paphos, or caves off the coastline near Ayia Napa would be the best decision.
