Larnaka’s splendid palm-fringed promenade is a perfect spot to grab an iced coffee or something stronger.
2 Potamos Liopetriou
Two tavernas, a small beach, plus dozens of bobbing boats make for an idyllic combination.
3 Fig Tree Bay
Despite the crowds, clutter and noisy jet-skis, this is still an exquisite beach.
4 Cultural Centre of Occupied Famagusta, Deryneia
Food for thought on the division of the island, with views across to the ghost town of Varosha in north Cyprus.
5 Mazotos Camel Park
A classic family day out, plus a great restaurant.
6 Costas Argyrou Museum
Lovely naive artwork with a subtle sense of humour, in a crumbling building designed by the artist.
Ruins of a hillside village from nine thousand years ago, brought to life by imaginative reconstructions.
8 Stavrovouni Monastery
Traditional Cypriot monastery which, at almost 700m, offers wonderful views (though it’s off limits to women).
