Discover the Beaches of Cyprus With Your Family!
As the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love, Cyprus is an island that is both stunningly beautiful and shrouded in mythology. You and your kids will definitely enjoy your vacation getaway, especially if it is your first time to have holidays to Cyprus in 2013. There are a wide array of fun activities that the Mediterranean island has in store for you.
Blue Flags of Paphos.
All families regard cleanliness and safety as being vital. Beaches that have been awarded the blue flag are some of the most clean and safe available, and within the Paphos district of Cyprus there are eleven of these family-friendly beaches.
The beach at Aphrodite’s rock provides adventures around its rocky crags, clear blue sea, and the gigantic rock where, according to legend, Aphrodite was born from the sea foam. Mythology also suggests that anyone who swims around the rock will be “blessed with eternal beauty.”
Paphos for Families.
For more adventurous families, there are water sports at beaches such as the very popular Pissouri, which offers lively restaurants, bars, and the old town of Pissouri to discover.
Paphos Municipal Beach is modern, relaxing, and dotted with palm trees. As well as being able to have a fantastic family day at the nearby water park, kids and adults alike can enjoy The Jolly Roger Pirate Cruise, with a feast of singing, swimming, pirate crafts, and a lunch fit for Blackbeard himself!
Cyprus offers exciting beach holidays to families on all of its coasts.
Fig Tree Bay at Protaras is a big favourite. With its tropical crystal waters and numerous palm trees, many families visit here. There are dazzling sea caves to explore and the resort of Protaras itself, which is a thriving example of traditional Cypriot culture with a modern twist!
Governor’s Beach in Limassol provides the best of both worlds. Adrenaline-fuelled water sports as well as secluded bays of black sand and white cliffs. Limassol, as a resort, has many fun family activities. From a donkey sanctuary, to water parks, and ancient Greek ruins, this huge area is a must-visit destination for any family.
Cyprus offers so many reasons for a fun, safe, and memorable family vacation. Beach holidays with the kids are supposed to be fun and relaxing; this stunning island provides both!
