Shopping in Cyprus

Cyprus offers wonderful shopping opportunities to honeymooners with a whole host of shops (many of which you will be familiar) in the capital, Nicosia. Outside of the capital, Larnaca and Limassol offer perhaps the best shopping opportunities although all of the major resorts have shopping centres of some description, with the island’s specialities available everywhere. If it is traditional Cypriot goods you are after, handmade Lefkara lace, pottery, leather goods, local wine and Keo Brandy are some of its best exports.




Local Flavours of Cyprus

Traditional Greek dishes can be found everywhere and to head to Cyprus and not sample a traditional Meze (a multi-course Cypriot banquet made up of many small dishes - similar to a Spanish tapas) would be sinful!

International cuisine is readily available on the island and many UK/US fast-food chains can be easily tracked down.

If you are set on going local, the dishes of Moussaka (layered aubergine, lamb mince and tomato topped in a bechamel sauce and baked), Pastitsio (macaroni pasta, mince beef or lamb, tomato, grated cheese, nutmeg or cinnamon topped in a bechamel sauce and baked), Dolmades (vine leaves stuffed with rice and mince) and grilled Halloumi (a grilled salty cheese) are musts, and try washing them down with a glass of Keo beer.

Top Resorts in Cyprus

Ayia Napa is the top spot on Cyprus for the younger clientele with its lively bars and discos. Paphos offers a more sedate and cultural atmosphere whilst Protoras, Larnaca and Limassol provide something in-between.

Several smaller coastal resorts, such as Pissouri and Polis & Latchi provide more seclusion and exclusivity but still retain the Cypriot charm. Whether its a lively Cypriot wedding or sedate Cyprus honeymoon you are after, there is a resort to suit you.

Out & About in Cyprus

If it’s culture and history you’re after, head to Paphos with it’s numerous archaeological sites, not to mention the Tombs of Kings, Ayios Neophytos Monastery and Byzantine Museum. The Troodos Mountains are home to numerous villages and beautiful churches and give you a real insight into Cypriot life, not to mention some stunning scenery along the way.

A trip to Nicosia, Europe’s only divided capital, is a must and you can see for yourself the ‘Green Line’ – a UN buffer-zone separating the Cypriot South from the Turkish-occupied North. Limassol’s annual wine festival is a great laugh (especially after you have been sampling for several hours!) and if you are around in Cyprus for the Christian feast of Pentecost (known locally as Kataklysmos) then head to Larnaca and follow the crowds down to the seafront promenade and join in the fun and celebrations.
