Places to Go

Waterworld If you¿re holidaying with the kids ¿ or you¿re just a big kid at heart ¿ a trip to a waterpark is a holiday essential. Cross it off your list with a day out at Waterworld, the biggest themed waterpark in Europe, for flumes, slides and pools with an ancient Greek spin. Aphrodite¿s Kingdom Those who love their Greek mythology will find Protaras to be a great base in Cyprus for stepping back in time to an ancient world. See the 2000 year old amphitheatre at Curium, head to Paphos to see the eerie Tomb of the Kings, and take in the mosaics at the House of Dionysos, for a cultural collection of excursions. Nicosia The capital city of the island, Nicosia, is quite unique thanks the fact that it¿s the only divided capital in the world ¿ with ownership split between Cyprus and Turkey. There¿s a literal ¿Green Line¿ zone cutting the city in two, which makes for a puzzling and intriguing sight. However, there is plenty more to see in Nicosia and it¿s certainly worth a visit despite its political issues. Head to Ledra Street for shopping, see the Archbishop¿s Palace, and wander the historical centre, taking in the three gates that guard it. Overall, this city offers an insight into Cyprus away from its beaches and tourist hubs.

Things to Do

Walk Underwater If you¿ve always wanted to scuba dive but are nervous about the equipment, ¿underwater walkers¿ offer a fun alternative. These helmets allow you to breathe underwater, and take in the stunning world below the surface, without the heavy tanks or essential training. Take a Catamaran Cruise A cruise on a catamaran makes a great family-friendly day out, with all ages able to enjoy lazing on deck, diving in the sea and maybe even snorkelling underwater. Shop the Markets A wander around the resort of Protaras will see you happen upon craft and gift shops galore, but if you want a bigger shopping experience, an excursion to nearby Larnaca Bay is in order. This resort has one of the largest outdoor markets in Cyprus, and is the perfect place to pick up trinkets and souvenirs to remember your holiday by.
