The 5 Best Places In Cyprus For A Honeymoon
There’s an inherent romance to Cyprus, with its azure-blue waters, historical ruins and idyllic beaches, it’s a corner of the world that was made for soulmates.
It’s this innate beauty combined with wonderful villas that means Cyprus is ideal for the honeymooners among you, and happily, we’ve narrowed down the best locations for you to explore hand in hand.
We couldn’t very well talk about landing places for love birds without talking about pretty Paphos. The birthplace of the love goddess herself, Paphos has remained just as magical and mythical as the stories would have it.
Quieter than many other locations in Cyprus, Paphos is renowned for its natural beauty, especially its gorgeous beaches such as the famed Coral Bay, not to mention the plentiful historical sites like the medieval baths and the mysterious catacombs.
If you’re a love bird, particularly of the vulture variety, then Paphos is undoubtedly for you. There, you’ll enjoy a honeymoon of slow beach walks, loved-up wandering around incredible ruins, and evening dinners beside the water wondering if it gets any better than this.
Ayia Napa is where you go if you’re a couple of birds of a different feather. Held aloft as party central for Cyprus, Ayia Napa thrums and flashes with a nigh time vibrancy that’s hard to pass by. Indeed, if you and your significant other met across a dance floor, then likely as not you’ll be able to happily relieve those days here in awesome Ayia Napa.
All that said, Ayia Napa is not to be considered a one trick pony by any means. To be sure you can spend your nights dancing and partying with your partner in crime, but by day Ayia Napa is just as much of a gracious host.
With wonderfully languid beaches to settle on, water activities to delve into, as well as excellent restaurants, theme parks and museums, there’s much more than partying on offer for the love birds among you.

And for those who appreciate excellent body work, you should also defiantly check out the adorable and impressive Historic & Classic Motor Museum.
Larnaca is a fantastic location for an all-round good time no matter what sort of honeymoon you two had in mind.
