Watch loggerhead turtles lay their eggs on Golden Beach, scope out Aphrodite’s Rock – where the Greek Goddess of love and beauty emerged from the sea – or take to the hills for some hiking and orchid hunting near Kantara Castle; Cyprus isn’t only beaches and bar-hopping.

Towns like Famagusta – with its cathedral converted into a mosque – are as pretty as they are interesting, and there are castles and the ancient ruins of Salamis for those who like old stones.

We even put together a list of reasons why you should consider studying abroad in Cyprus.
