Sun rules

For those among you that do not find that so amazing, consider the following fact: in Aphrodite’s island, a usual summer day will provide the fortunate residents with at least 11, 5 hours of bright sunshine!

Therefore, if cloudy weather and rain depresses you, just forget all about them in Cyprus. Buy lots of sun cream, be sure to buy a nice pair of sunglasses and book your tickets to Cyprus.

Last year, 57 different Cypriot beaches were “tagged” with Blue Flag awards based on strict environmental management criteria and bathing water quality, coastal planning and protection, safety and service number and quality to bathers, despite the fact that most of them are near large and vibrant cities.

All of the island’s beaches will surely offer you an inimitable and joyous experience, but we cannot resist the temptation of mentioning some of our favorites:
