The Glorious Great Outdoors with Columbia Beach Resort

Sun-soaked outdoor fun on the charming island of Cyprus...

Scenically set along Pissouri Bay's two kilometres of sand and pebbles, Columbia Beach Resort is an all-suite paradise surrounded by bougainvillea and olive trees.
While relaxing on your private balcony, lounging beside the perfectly blue swimming pool and indulging in the gourmet offerings of three equally delicious eateries may seem too tempting to leave, the naturally beautiful setting surrounding this Cypriot sanctuary is too good to miss. With a focus - now more than ever - on heading outside and inhaling the fresh air, where better to find your adventurous side?

Watersports and Scuba Diving

With the shimmering Mediterranean Sea on the doorstep, who could resist a dip? Columbia Beach Resort's extensive watersports centre has everything you need for waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and kitesurfing, along with pedal boats, kayaks and jet skis to hire - friendly faces Yiannos and Dia are always on-hand for lessons! The best way to truly understand the characterful island of Cyprus is by exploring its coastline, and a boat trip is an idyllic way to see the sights. Experience Cypriot mythology on a voyage to Aphrodite's Rock, explore isolated bays where rare vultures and falcons are known to nest, and see a unique view of the impressive Roman-Greco Kourion Amphitheatre - when you take to the waves, the possibilities are endless. Beneath the surface, scuba diving is another insightful and immersive way to explore, with dives at sites including Paphos, Limassol, Akamas and the world-famous Zenobia Wreck easily organised by the resort.

Scenic Cycling

Seeing the beautiful scenery, quaint villages, bountiful vineyards and endless olive groves by bicycle is one of the best ways to explore Cyprus. Home to the only professional cycling centre BikeCyprus, run by the former Swiss cycling champion Thomas Wegmüller, the resort encourages you to get in the saddle for a challenging choice of mountain and road bike tours - ranging from 20km to 110km - that take in sights including Turtle Beach and the Pissouri cliffs. With varying in difficulties in trails, there's something for the whole family to enjoy, and with up to 340 days of sunshine in Cyprus, it's an all-year-round adventure! If you prefer cycling freedom, rent your cycles from the centre and head out on your very own island tour by bike.

Glorious Golf

Any novice or experienced golfer dreams of teeing off against the backdrop of rolling hills and turquoise seas - and luckily - Columbia Beach Resort can easily make this a reality. Located within 30 minutes' drive of several championship courses, you can spend the afternoon, or a whole day perfecting your swing in the sunshine. Designed by golfing legend Sir Nick Faldo, the world-class Eléa Estate Golf Club is home to a challenging par-71 course and state-of-the-art equipment, whilst the magnificent clubhouse and 18-hole green at Aphrodite Hills Golf Club overlook the site where the Greek goddess of love is said to have emerged from the sea. For beginners, you can relish tuition from a PGA professional hidden amongst the ancient groves, olive trees and fruit orchards of the Minthis Hills Golf Club, before venturing onto the spectacular fairway designed by legendary golf architect Donald Steel.

From my home in picturesque North Wales, my travels have taken me from the idyllic Greek Islands to the bright lights of New York - always with a very full suitcase, of course!
