Sea-bathing and caressing sunshine. It is easy to understand that Greece’s goddess of love Aphrodite was born from the waves on Cyprus’ beaches. The mythology, language, traditions and lifestyle are Greek, but dolmades and sheep cheese salad compete. Cypriot customs offer delicious dishes such as mezé and halloumi cheese. Enjoy a vibrant mix of east and west and take the entertainment pulse of the island of passion!
