CyprusAlluring beaches and tempting waters await you on Cyprus’ coastline, whilst inland you’ll find a bounty of undulating hills scattered with olive and citrus groves, sleepy little villages and very welcoming residents. Make sure you sample plenty of the local wines and mouth-watering cuisine; the seafood is fresh and plentiful and best-grilled and enjoyed al fresco, in true Cypriot style. This is an excellent destination for spring or autumn sunshine - April and October are particularly good times to visit with average temperatures in the mid 20s. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Cyprus: Try the challenging 18-hole golf course at the Aphrodite Hills Resort near Paphos.For a break from Cyprus’s stunning Mediterranean coastline, hire a car and head into the hills to see Cyprus’s gothic castles. In the eastern mountain range of Kyrenia is the Kantara Castle, built in the 10th century, with great views across Cyprus. Be sure to hire a Jeep and explore the Troodos Mountains, a brilliant contrast to Cyprus's beaches.
