9 reasons to honeymoon in Cyprus

Online Desk
As the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love and beauty, Cyprus has a well-earned reputation as the island of love and is the perfect honeymoon destination.


Here, the Cyprus Tourism Organisation share nine reasons why you should choose Cyprus for your honeymoon.


Cyprus is the island of love


When visiting the ‘island of love’ and birthplace of Aphrodite herself, honeymooners can even follow in the footsteps of the goddess of love herself. It’s possible to take time to gaze into the crystal-clear waters surrounding ‘Aphrodite’s Rock’ on the Pafos coast – the fabled birthplace of Aphrodite (swimming around the rock at midnight is said to make the swimmer younger by a year for every lap!) - before driving to Polis to the Baths of Aphrodite, a secluded pool where legend holds that the goddess is said to have seduced Apollo.


Great weather… at any time of year


Cyprus is a year-round destination with a good climate: mild winters and a long summer season. May and September are particularly popular months for romantic breaks but, with over 300 days of guaranteed sunshine each year, Cyprus is the ideal romantic destination whatever time of year you’re planning your honeymoon.


Stunning scenery and nature


Cyprus is, put simply, a stunning island. The glorious coastline, rolling mountains and dense forests make a beautiful backdrop for your romantic break. From the warm shores of the mainland to the unspoiled and cool oasis of the Troodos mountain range, nature lovers can go birdwatching, see flocks of flamingos in the salt lakes or spot Cyprus’ national animal – the Mouflon – in the forests.


Exotic yet close to home


No-one wants long flights and jetlag to be part of their honeymoon – which is why Cyprus is a great choice. The island is just a short flight from the UK (approx. 4.5 hours) so you can visit somewhere exciting and exotic yet close to home. 


Legendary hospitality and sophisticated gastronomy


Cypriots are warm, friendly and hospitable and the food is fantastic. The island has made significant advances in gastronomy and offers wholesome food with European sophistication as well as an increasing amount of non-ethnic cuisine.


The perfect place to toast your honeymoon


Home to award-winning local wines, Cyprus is a great destination for wine-loving couples to toast their recent nuptials. The destination has seven different wine routes, each leading to quality, boutique wineries.


Europe’s cleanest beaches


Cyprus boasts the cleanest bathing waters in Europe, several stunning Blue Flag beaches and a calm, clean ocean. This makes it a stunning destination to relax on the beach and take some picture-perfect snaps to remember your trip.


Great for active couples


Not everyone wants a ‘fly and flop’ honeymoon. If you’re the type of couple who wants to keep busy on your honeymoon, Cyprus has a huge range of sport, outdoor and adventure activities on offer from windsurfing, scuba diving, water skiing and kite-surfing to spa & wellness, mountaineering, walking, cycling, trekking and golf.


Something for everyone


Cyprus – the third largest island in the Mediterranean – attracts over two million tourists annually. Cyprus is a year-round island appealing to a wide range of personal tastes and lifestyles, from families and couples, to the most discerning of culture and nature-oriented travellers. So, Cyprus can offer whatever you’re looking for on your honeymoon.
