Cyprus for families

1st Mar 2013

The island-country of Cyprus, situated in the Eastern Mediterranean sea, is a perfect destination for a family holiday. With daily temperatures of up to 36° C, during the hottest months of July and August, Cyprus is blessed with a climate that gives families over 11 hours of bright sunshine to enjoy each and every day, during the six summer months.

While choosing a destination for a family holiday isn’t always straightforward, Cyprus is endowed with qualities that will keep your family truly entertained.

Sun and sea
Whether you’re looking for a place to unwind, or somewhere with a little entertainment value to keep your children amused, Cyprus has it all.

Golden beaches and crystal clear blue waters make Cyprus a fantastic beach holiday destination. Whether you are attracted by the hustle and bustle of the ever-popular Phinikoudes Beach, or the seclusion of Green Bay, Cyprus offers variety, suitable to cater for every mood.

If you’re trying to keep your children entertained, there is a vast array of activities on offer. Cyprus offers families the opportunity to enjoy the thrills and spills of a water park, not to mention giving you the chance to try your hand at windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, diving and even bungee jumping. If you’re worried about entertaining your children, fear not, Cyprus is a destination which will satisfy the desires of even the most adventurous families amongst you.

Family-friendly accommodation
As you would expect from any holiday destination with so much to offer, much of the accommodation in Cyprus is deliberately family-friendly.

Hotels, such as the Avlida Hotel Paphos, offer all inclusive deals which will satisfy your family’s every whim. Located just 250 metres from the beach, and only 1.5km from Paphos harbour, the Avlida Hotel Paphos epitomises the family-friendly ambience of Cyprus. It gives parents access to bars and restaurants, serving traditional drinks and food, while children will be enamoured with the wealth of activities on offer, from swimming pools to tennis courts, which will keep them entertained for hours.

Satisfy their curiosity
When you’re taking a family holiday, keeping the kids entertained can be an unenviable task. While the resorts of Cyprus are committed to offering children fun activities to keep them amused, and the novelty of the beach will suffice for a while, Cyprus’ trump card is its historical intrigue.

Cyprus is a veritable voyage of discovery for the curious child. If you have children that are interested in history, Cyprus offers the chance for them to discover what life was like at the dawn of civilisation, by visiting Choirokoitia, one of the best preserved prehistoric settlement sites in the Eastern Mediterranean. Roman villas, ruins and a visit to the breathtaking Tombs of the Kings will top off your trip to Cyprus and give your family an experience that they will cherish forever.
