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.
