Cyprus travel info
There is another side to Cyprus than the infamous Agia Napa resort that you can discover with responsibletravel.com! The people of Cyprus owe their individuality and warmth to the fact that they are the product of an amazingly colorful history. This sun drenched island has been at the crossroads of world events for centuries. Roman, Byzantine, Greek and British influences have all had a bearing on life in Cyprus.
Cyprus is an island of beauty and contrasts. Cool, pine-clad mountains are a complete scene-change after golden sun-kissed beaches; tranquil, timeless villages are in striking contrast to modern cosmopolitan towns; luxurious beachside hotels can be exchanged for large areas of natural, unspoilt countryside; yet in Cyprus all distances are easily manageable, mostly on modern roads and highways.
For the responsible traveller the restoration of traditional houses in Cyprus villages - often referred to as agrotourism - provides lovely and traditional places to stay which also benefits the local economy.
