Haven Of Special Interests

From Hiking And Cycling To Wine And Medicine

Naturally, the island’s coast is home to an abundance of yachting and cruising activities, where private yachts are available to hire, either with or without a crew. Scuba diving, along with sailing courses and diving schools with qualified instructors, make for a great active holiday, even offering the possibility of earning certified qualifications. All of these activities, alongside the ever-popular waterskiing, surfboarding and paragliding, truly enrich the mosaic of leisure activities available on the island

Walking along the island’s numerous beautiful nature trails is extremely popular, as are horse riding and cycling holidays, with a clutch of riding schools offering lessons and supervised riding along the coast and in the countryside. Those who enjoy nature trails may join like-minded visitors or locals in observing the flora and fauna of Cyprus or attending guided bird watching sessions, with the option of finding accommodation in rural agro tourism lodges in the tranquillity of the villages.

There are also popular tours of the wineries situated along the island’s Wine Routes in the winemaking areas, where visitors can learn about winemaking processes and sample some of the excellent produce. There are many small regional wineries producing award-winning wines, not to mention Commandaria, the honey sweet wine that’s been produced in Cyprus for hundreds of years and is well worth sampling.

Cyprus boasts more than 80 private hospitals, with highly qualified medical teams catering to all specialities, from general surgery to plastic surgery, cardiology, paediatrics and more

Visitors interested in archaeological sites will find lots to explore throughout the island, as well as many ancient monasteries and churches. Those interested in the study of the fascinating geology of Cyprus won’t be disappointed either. Cyprus was once a centre of copper mining, from which the island is thought to have derived its name. Interest in mining for copper ore has been revived in recent times, with the introduction of modern extraction methods.

The flourishing medical tourism industry is also particularly interesting. Cyprus boasts more than 80 private hospitals, with highly qualified medical teams catering to all specialities, from general surgery to plastic surgery, cardiology, paediatrics and more. Private dentistry, which is provided by over 700 dentists, is often cheaper than in most northern countries.

Here golfers can find a year-round destination to enjoy their sport, with a high standard of courses and accommodation available. The increasing interest in this sector has been remarkable. Without any exaggeration, there really is something for everyone in Cyprus, throughout the year.
