The magical island of Cyprus is certainly a wonderful choice for a honeymoon destination. With more than 330 days of sunshine a year, your honeymoon can’t be spoilt by inclement weather and you can enjoy all the wonders that Cyprus has to offer. From relaxing on the golden sand beaches, to romantic long walks in the lush Cyprus countryside, to dining alfresco at a local taverna, perhaps enjoying a glass of the famous, locally produced Commandaria wine as you watch the sunset. Romance abounds on this island, and so it’s the perfect place to celebrate with your new spouse. Of course you’ll want to make as many memories as possible, to treasure over the coming years together, so here are our top 5 suggestions for romantic, fun and above all, memorable things to do when honeymooning in Cyprus…
1. Experience sunrise at the birthplace of Aphrodite
Aphrodite’s Rock is a special place at any time of day, and it’s popular with newly weds as it has links to good fortune, love and fertility. However, if you want the experience to be truly special, then you should get up early (or indeed stay up late) and head to Petra Tou Romiou just before sunrise. It really is a stunning sight to behold and you may even be lucky enough to get your view all to yourself. Don’t forget your camera as it’s the ideal opportunity for some photos for your album too.
2. Find your special place on a secluded beach
There’s perhaps nothing more romantic than relaxing on a secluded beach with your beloved. Cyprus is full of amazing beaches, but on your honeymoon it’s worthwhile taking a little extra time and getting off the beaten path to a beach that’s less popular with tourists. Beaches such as Pachyammos or Alaminos Beach are more private and secluded, the perfect paradise for couples looking for some special time together away from the crowds.
3. Explore caves and more on a Jeep Safari
After a day relaxing at the beach, you may want to take things up a gear so why not take an off road adventure on a Jeep Safari? You’ll get to visit the awe-inspiring sea caves, the aptly named Lover’s Bridge and more Cyprus landmarks.
4. Take a sightseeing boat trip and view the island from another angle
Cyprus is beautiful from inland, but you get a different perspective when you see it from the sea on a boat trip. A relaxing cruise gives you the opportunity to catch the sun’s rays while taking in some spectacular scenery. You’ll also have the chance to jump into the crystal clear waters and cool down from the midday sun.
5. Find a new shared hobby with a diving experience
Doing things together as a couple is a wonderful bonding experience and what better than to discover a new passion while on your honeymoon? Could diving be yours? Cyprus is very popular with divers worldwide and offers some of the best diving opportunities in its warm, clear waters. As such there is no shortage of diving schools with highly experienced instructors on hand to teach you all you need to know before you head out to discover a magical underwater world.
