When you think of Cyprus, what images spring to mind? It’s likely that the first things you think of are the beautiful golden sand beaches, and the crystal clear blue waters. Perhaps you imagine you are relaxing on the beach, soaking up the sunshine and letting all your worries and cares fade away. Of course, this is one of the wonderful aspects of a holiday to Cyprus, but if you can tear yourself away from the beach, there are so many beautiful sights to behold on this magnificent island.
Whether you’re visiting Cyprus purely as a tourist, or you’re here on a medical trip, it’s great to take time out to explore a little further afield, and there’s no better time than springtime. In the spring the weather is just perfect for getting out and about. You’ll have plenty of sunshine, but it won’t be overpowering and exhausting as it can be in the height of summer. The countryside is green and lush, and the pretty spring flowers are in bloom. Here are four amazing destinations that will certainly look their very best in spring…
1. Kionia Profitis Elias
This area offers some fantastic hiking trails. For beginners, there’s a 4.5-mile route that’s considered to be an easy hike. For the more experienced hiker, the Kionia Profitis Elias circular hiking trail is as beautiful as it is challenging. The route covers a little over 13 miles and is claimed to be one of the best hiking trails in all of Cyprus. Spring is the perfect time to tackle this challenge, and if you do, you’ll be rewarded with some of the most wonderful sights of the Cypriot countryside.
2. Akamas Peninsula
The Akamas Peninsula is a stunning national park area offering some truly breath-taking views of the island and the sea. Here you’ll find a variety of hiking trails, with routes available for all abilities. On your journey, you’ll discover secluded sandy bays, the perfect spot to stop and relax and enjoy the scenery. This area is also the perfect destination for nature lovers, as it’s home to a diverse range of wildlife including 168 species of bird. Be sure to remember your camera on this trip as you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take some spectacular shots.
3. Polemi Village
This quaint little village can be easily overlooked on a trip to Cyprus, but it’s certainly worth taking the time to visit it. Here you’ll discover the true Cyprus, with a warm welcome. Take time to explore, stop for a relaxing meal at one of the traditional tavernas, and don’t forget to sample the locally produced wines. A visit in early April also comes with an extra surprise, as the wild tulips are in bloom, adding a blanket of colour to the local countryside.
4. Limnatis Village
Limnatis is historically fascinating and stunningly beautiful. Set in the mountains in the Limassol countryside, the village dates back to at least 500 BC. Famous for its almonds, the almond trees are a sight to behold when the blossoms are in full bloom. No visit to Limnatis is complete without tasting soutzouko, the delicious almond sweets that are produced locally. The area is also home to some interesting ancient chapels and churches, and there’s a picnic area close to the chapel of Saint Epifanios that offers some gorgeous panoramic countryside views.
