Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Greece
Visit This Mediterranean Island For A Perfect Winter Getaway
This Mediterranean island near Greece, Turkey, and Lebanon is known for its big beaches, hiking trails, archaeological sites, great wines, and warm weather year-round.
With 300 days a year of sunshine, winter temperatures in Cyprus average in the low to mid-60s, which feels quite warm from the comfort of a crowd-free beach.
Winter is a great time for hiking in Cyprus. The mountains have archaeological sites, ancient churches, and spectacular views from summits.
The Agioi Anargyroi Trail is a popular hike, as is the Adonis Nature Trail, a 4.5-mile loop that starts near the Baths of Aphrodite and heads northwest through plenty of flora.
Travel to the salt lakes to see the thousands of pink flamingos that arrive between November and March, attracted by the island's humidity and the plankton and shrimp in the water.
There are many types of accommodations in Cyprus, from the luxurious Anassa Hotel with a world-class spa to a cozy village stay at the secluded Apokryfo Traditional Guesthouse.
