Cyprus is one of Europe's tourist hotspots. Paphos in the far southwest of the island is the most popular holiday destination by far for Brits. Its where all the major resort facilities are. It has a pleasant harbour and medieval fort, and spectacular countryside and historical sites to explore. It offers a wide selection of accommodation ranging from luxury beachside hotels to a variety of hotel apartments for the budget conscious. Swim in the sea by the rocks known as Petra tou Romiou, where Aphrodite is believed to have risen from the waves, make a pilgrimage to her sanctuary at Kouklia, or visit the grotto near Polis where she was supposed to have bathed. The beaches here are lovely and the Mediterranean climate offers hot, humid summers and cool, wet winters.
Southern Cyprus has two lively port towns Limassol and Larnaca. Limassol has an elegant old quarter with a small covered produce market, surrounded by tavernas and bars. Larnaca, has fabulous seafront streets such as Pialé Pashá and Finikoúdes.
