Our Experts Say...

"The best time to visit Cyprus is from April to November making it the perfect holiday destination for families looking to get away for some short-haul sunshine! It is particularly great for May and October half terms as you consistently get temperatures of 25 degrees during these periods. There are plenty of flights to Paphos and the transfer times to the hotels are nice and easy making it a stress-free holiday. Once there, you have a handful of beautiful hotels to choose from; The Anassa and The Almyra both have the incredible Explorers Kids Clubs so your little ones can be well looked after whilst you get a well-deserved break! If you're staying at The Anassa, you must take the time to hire a boat and go visit to stunning Blue Lagoon for a family memory you won't forget."
