Cyprus is situated in the south-eastern Mediterranean Sea and offers some of the warmest and sandiest beaches in Europe. The island is split into the Northern Turkish side and the southern Greek area. While it is possible to visit both, the Greek area is the most common destination and much more tourist friendly, with stunning resorts, bustling towns and beautiful scenery.

Two of the most popular destinations are Paphos on the south-west coast and Larnaca on the south-east coast. Both areas (and in fact the island as a whole) offer the same weather and climate and have the same busy seasons.
