CYPRUS

Cyprus is a holiday favorite amongst travelers thanks to its sun kissed beaches, ancient sites and pulsating nightlife. It attracts everyone from families to clubbers and backpackers. Gorgeous golden beaches and rugged coastlines meet forest-clad mountains and hills while traditional villages with winding streets and manicured vineyards and olive groves sit in delightful contrast.

Some of the best beach holiday destinations include the lively Ayia Napa, the Nissi and Protaras beaches flanked by limestone cliffs and adorned by tilting palm trees. Cyprus offers numerous opportunities for outdoor pursuits such as hiking, surfing, horse riding and sailing. It offers more than a holiday along the beaches.

ITALY

Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, Italy boasts of a lengthy and varied coastline displaying Italian villages, historic towns, fishing ports, fabulous beaches and rugged cliffs that will make your jaws drop. Aside from its coastline, Italy boasts of stunning offshore islands ideal for seaside holidays.

The Amalfi coast is perhaps the most beautiful and famous stretch of mountainous coastline south of Naples in Campania. It is dotted with pastel colored villages clinging giddily to the cliffs, fine resorts and a generous selection of restaurants, bars and boutiques frequented by celebrities. Positano and Ravello are famous destinations along the Amalfi coast.

Cinque Terre means ‘five lands’ and consists of five perilously perched villages strung along a short stretch of the soaring cliffs in Liguria at the top left of Italy’s boot. Though visited immensely by hikers and backpackers, its natural beauty and shabby ‘authentic’ charm of the fishing villages remain unfretted.

For a beach holiday in an island, Ischia is the ideal destination. It is an island of volcanic origins and boasts of sandy beaches, mountains, thermal springs and spa complexes. Italy offers endless opportunities for luxury beach holidays and it is no wonder visitors never cease to this part of the planet.
