Cyprus in Spring: Top 5 Places You’ve Got to See

Bright sunny skies and glistening seas may immediately spring to mind the moment you think about Cyprus, but venture away from the coast and a natural wonderland awaits. Through bucolic villages, into natural parks, and up to the island’s highest heights, we take you on a colourful journey through some of the most magnificent places to visit when holidaying in Cyprus during the spring!

  1. Akamas Peninsula

If you’re enjoying your time off at the Alexander the Great Beach Hotel or the Olympic Lagoon Resort Paphos , nearby Akamas simply has to be on your bucket list.

A gorgeous national park stretching 230 square kilometres on the far western tip of the island, a rocky coastline befriends azure seas, while further inland, deep valleys, caves and fascinating nature trails beckon the intrepid explorer. In the Cyprus spring, the area is brimming with flowers; the entire vicinity is home to approximately 530 indigenous plants, 35 of which are rare and endemic.

  1. Lania village

Just a short drive from Limassol town and the Elias Beach Hotel , and up through the sun-kissed slopes that weave up to the Troodos mountains, the gorgeous village of Lania beckons

One of the most visited villages in the winegrowing district for good reason, Lania is famed for its stunning flowers and idyllic courtyards which truly come into their own in the spring. Take a walk around the village and you’ll also spot beautiful black and white photos placed around the area, documenting village life and taking you back to bygone days.

  1. Troodos peaks

The peaks of the Troodos Mountains rise up almost 2000 metres above sea level, with visitors heading to the area to breathe in the cool mountain air and take in the beauty of the island from above.

Formed 92 million years ago, The Troodos National Forest Park – an expanse of forest covering about 90km around Mount Olympus – is home to approximately 750 plant species, with 72 of these endemic to the island. And if you want to get better acquainted with Cyprus nature and the many endemic plants and herbs of the area, be sure to head to the pretty Troodos Botanical Gardens.

  1. CyHerbia Botanical Park and Labyrinth

Not far from the Olympic Lagoon Resort Agia Napa , the  CyHerbia Botanical Park and Labyrinth in the quiet village of Avgorou is a gorgeous place to visit during the spring, especially if you have kids, who can unleash some energy in a large hedge maze.

Adults, on the other hand, can meander through 10 themed organic herb gardens filled with all sorts of Mediterranean herbs, and a lavender mediation labyrinth. You can also pop into the herb shop to stock up on some lovely goodies to take back home with you.

  1. Cape Greco National Park

Another East coast gem, Cape Greco is a glorious national park between Ayia Napa and Protaras, famed for is dramatic sea caves and various nature trails that dissect the area.

Traverse the rocky headland and you’ll be able to spot juniper and pine, with countless shrubs also blanketing the area. But in the spring, the whole vicinity becomes more colourful than ever, with various flowers in full bloom including vibrant orchids. Be sure to have your cameras at the ready!
