With 37 gorgeous beaches and many historical sites (some of which are even claimed by UNESCO), it should come as no surprise that Cyprus is a country loved by tourists. Peak season would be between the months of May and August, when rainfall is at a minimum, but expect beaches to be packed with people during those months.
Throughout my time in Cyprus, I got a chance to visit some of these famous tourist attractions including Lamaca Beach, Baphos, and the painted churches in the troodos region. Although Cyprus is renowned for its clear blue beaches, its historical value is not to be overlooked. After visiting a few sites with a tour guide, I was blown away by just how culturally and historically rich of a place Cyprus is. Paired with magnificent views, it is evident why tourism has found its place in the country. I would recommend visiting as many sites as possible, but for those on a tight schedule, I found the entire Paphos region to be a very charming area.
Furthermore, there are plenty of affordable, delicious options for food across the island. For those who love café hunting, there is a handful of aesthetic eateries scattered throughout Cyprus. I stumbled upon one after a long hike and ended up staying for over an hour just taking pictures of the gorgeous view overlooking the mountain.
I would highly recommend visiting Cyprus to just about anyone—it has everything one could ever want!
