Natural Attractions on the Island of Cyprus

The beautiful island of Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, to the south east of Greece and south of Turkey. The island enjoys a mild climate and has a rich natural heritage.

The following are just a few of the many natural attractions for visitors to explore on their holidays to Cyprus.

Cyprus offers a variety of different beaches to suit everyone. These include golden, white and dark sandy beaches, pebble and rock beaches, isolated in green or desert environments, lagoon style to rough sea-like waters; this list goes on and on. All of the beaches are very clean with more than 50 having been awarded the Blue Flag. More than 30 of the islands beaches have facilities for handicapped visitors.

The Ayia Napa Nissi Beach, Protaras Bay Beach and Konnos Beach in the east have soft golden sands and calm clear waters while the beaches in Larnaca have much darker sands.
