Leisure & Lifestyle

A true jewel of the Mediterranean Sea and home to global business activity, Cyprus is an island of compelling culture and landscapes, steeped in myth and riddled with ancient riches.

Cyprus is the sunniest country in Europe with over 300 days of sun annually, having also one of the healthiest environments in the world according to the World Health Organization.
Its landscape and warm, Mediterranean climate mean that outside is where it’s at – and where you should be. Endowed with sun-soaked stretches of sand and clear blue waters, wildflower-studded meadows, valleys of densely planted vineyards, and lofty mountains with pine-scented forests, the island is full of wonderful experiences just waiting to be enjoyed.

Cypriots are known worldwide for their genuine and sincere hospitality and friendliness. Like Cypriot culture, Cypriot cuisine is an amalgamation of different influences from Greece, the Mediterranean region and the island’s previous conquerors.

Quality of life in Cyprus is exceptionally high, offering citizens a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere, while it boasts of low crime and low pollution rates, beautiful nature, rich history and culture, enjoyable climate as well as various entertainment options that meet everyone’s interests.
