Tips to travel

Traveling to Cyprus promises a blend of rich history, stunning landscapes, Mediterranean cuisine, and warm hospitality. Here are some tips to enhance your trip:

Visa Requirements: Check if you need a visa to enter Cyprus based on your nationality and the purpose of your visit. EU citizens can enter Cyprus with a valid passport or ID card. Visitors from other countries should check the visa requirements in advance.

Best Time to Visit: Cyprus enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. The peak tourist season is from June to August when the weather is ideal for beach activities. Spring (April to May) and autumn (September to October) offer pleasant weather for exploring cultural sites and outdoor activities with fewer crowds.

Transportation: Cyprus has a well-developed transportation network, including buses, taxis, and rental cars. Public buses are the most common mode of transportation for getting around the island, with services connecting major cities and tourist areas. Renting a car allows for more flexibility, especially for exploring remote areas and hidden gems.

Language: Greek and Turkish are the official languages of Cyprus, but English is widely spoken, especially in tourist areas, hotels, and restaurants. Learning a few basic phrases in Greek or Turkish can enhance your travel experience and show respect for local culture.

Currency and Payments: Cyprus uses the Euro (EUR) as its currency. Credit and debit cards are widely accepted in major cities and tourist areas, but it's advisable to carry some cash, especially in rural areas and small establishments.

Cuisine: Cypriot cuisine is influenced by Greek, Turkish, and Middle Eastern flavors, featuring fresh seafood, grilled meats, meze (a selection of small dishes), halloumi cheese, and traditional dishes like moussaka and souvlaki. Don't miss trying local specialties like souvlaki, kleftiko (slow-cooked lamb), and loukoumades (honey-dipped doughnuts).

Cultural Highlights: Explore Cyprus's rich cultural heritage by visiting ancient ruins, Byzantine churches, and medieval castles. Discover the archaeological site of Kourion, explore the ancient city of Salamis, wander through the charming streets of Lefkara village known for its lacework and silverware, and explore the divided capital city of Nicosia.

Outdoor Activities: Cyprus offers abundant opportunities for outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, diving, and snorkeling. Explore the Troodos Mountains for hiking trails and scenic viewpoints, or relax on the beautiful beaches of Ayia Napa and Protaras along the eastern coast.

Safety: Cyprus is generally a safe destination for travelers, but exercise caution, especially in crowded tourist areas where pickpocketing can occur. Be mindful of your belongings and avoid isolated areas, particularly at night.

Etiquette: Cypriots are known for their hospitality and friendliness. When greeting someone, a handshake is common. Maintain eye contact during conversations and show respect for local customs and traditions.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can have a fantastic experience exploring the beauty and charm of Cyprus.
