Introduction

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.

The island is split into a Greek south and a Turkish north, and Nicosia is the only divided capital city in the world, though it's no problem to cross from one half to the other.

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.
