Cyprus, the jewel of the Mediterranean Sea, an island of catching
natural beauty from mountainous terrains to amazingly beautiful beaches.
Cosmopolitan, yet traditional with excellent facilities for the traveller
offering a feast for the eyes.
Cyprus is rapidly becoming a key trading centre between Europe and the Middle
East with many offshore and global companies choosing to open offices there. The
Capital of Cyprus, Nicosia and the trading centre, Limassol, have seen huge
expansion both in terms of trade and flourishing 'society life'- bars,
restaurants, theatres, leisure facilities and shops - have grown to meet the
ever-increasing consumer demand.
Away from the commercial centres, Cyprus offers unparalleled coastlines -
miles and miles of unspoilt coastline, the majestic Mount Olympus in the Troodos
mountain range, historical sites and innumerable places of interest to visit.
Add to this a year-round climate offering fantastic summer sun, a mild winter
in which people still hold regular outdoor barbeques and an opportunity for
people of all ages to participate in a wide range of year-round activities, from
walking, skiing, climbing and cycling, through to water sports, extreme sports,
sailing to simply relaxing and taking life easy.
During the summer months, the popular holiday resorts of Protaras, Ayia Napa,
Larnaca and Limassol really come alive, with a pace of life to suit all, from
those who wish to escape from it all, or those who wish to party until the early
hours. A chance to spend days out cruising on boats along the coastline, eat
traditional foods at many of the picturesque harbours - the choice really is
endless and with so much variety, it really does require years to fully
appreciate the warmth and friendliness that makes Cyprus a fantastic place to
live and visit.
