A beautiful island in the eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus boasts a rich and interesting history and is filled with beautiful beaches. It is also the perfect destination for a luxury family holiday. Most of our featured luxury Cyprus hotels and resorts offer superb facilities for families, including children’s clubs and a variety of child-friendly activities and entertainment. However, the island itself boasts numerous wonderful attractions and sights that are certain to keep families returning time and time again.
Protaras in the Larnaca region, is a firm favourite amongst families visiting Cyprus, offering a more tranquil ambience than the more buzzing locations on the eastern side of the island. The sweeping golden sandy beach, with its shallow waters, is perfect for young ones and there are plenty of family-friendly cafes and restaurants surrounding the beach.
In addition, Cyprus is home to a variety of family attractions, guaranteeing a wonderfully fun-filled holiday for all, including the brilliant Dinosaur Park, where a variety of animated dinosaurs are found, and the Greek mythology-themed Water World, a huge waterpark filled with thrilling waterslides and a lazy river. The island boasts a range of other exciting waterparks too – Wet’n Wild Waterpark in Lemesos Fasouri, Watermania Waterpark in Lemesos and Protaras Fun Park in Protaras. Historic family attractions include Kolossi Castle, the former home of the Knights Templar, where little ones can dress up as knights or maidens, and the excellent Museum of Palaeontology in Larnaca, where families can learn about fossils and the origins of the dinosaurs. Animal-themed attractions, meanwhile, include Larnaca Camel Park, Ostrich Wonderland in Lefkosia and the Bird Park in Paphos.
