Cyprus is an unknown, but at the same time a well known Island which is located in the east mediterranean Sea, only 168km from Syria. Geographically Cyprus is in Asia. But let's have a closer look. By the way, in this Travel Guide we're going to have a look at the greek part of Cyprus.

There are two Airports which have nonstop international connections, one near Paphos and the other one in the well known Larnaca. I'm sure you'll find a cheap flight to Cyprus from your home!


I would recommend a visit at the port of Paphos, as you can see there are several fisher boats, but you can also find some little yachts and you can even make a trip with a glass bottom boat! At the sea promenade of Paphos are several restaurants and souvenirshops and if you want to rent a car, than you can choose between various offers.

I can highly recommend a walk from the castle at the port to the "Lighthouse beach" it's around 20 minutes and you have a great view on the sea at the whole time - it's also called the Coastal walk. If you arrived at the lighthouse beach you can walk into the direction of the McDonalds, across the street there is a bus stop, the bus takes you directly back to the port of Paphos.


There are several little villages in the mountains of Cyprus. I visited two of them, one is called Kakopetria and the other one is Pano Lefkara. I can really recommend a visit of them, alone the journey to them is very interesting. From Paphos you can drive through the Troodos mountains or at the coast towards Limassol.

Just walk around and explore the little alleys of the villages. There are several little cafés and restaurants. You can choose between touristic restaurants or the little "secrets" where you can meet the local people and talk with them. 

As an example I was on the way to Kakopetria and I found a little restaurant, or a café, I don't know exactly, but it was something between a café and a restaurant. The locals were there and I could talk with them, so I know now that they get woke up by the birds every morning.
