Cyprus: 7 days circumnavigating the island on a luxury yacht

1 of 7 1/7
Day 1

Wonderful mosiacs and harbour-front tavernas

Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean and is lovingly nicknamed the ‘island of love’. Whether you are chartering a superyacht in Cyprus or enjoying the island on a private yacht there is plenty to discover.

Although it is definitely European, its close proximity to the east means little influences from Turkey, Syria and Lebanon occasionally creep in.

A cruise around its southern shores is a little bit like a history lesson in mythology; marvel at the ancient birthplace of Aphrodite, who allegedly sprang from the waters just 15-miles off the coast of Paphos or wander around the ancient ruins in Larnaca and Kourion.

For the party crowd (and the young-at-heart) Ayia Napa is considered one of the top Mediterranean party destinations and after a night on the town, your yacht awaits with a lazy day at sea to recover.

Day 1: Wonderful mosiacs and harbour-front tavernas

Most international flights land at Paphos, so it would make sense to meet your yacht in the harbour there. Once you have settled on board, go ashore in the late afternoon and spend an hour or two looking round the Kato Pafos Archaeological Park near the harbour — one of many on-shore activites that Cyprus has to offer.

This is a wonderful site with remains spanning 2000 years of history. When you have had your fill of history and culture, meander to one of the many harbour-front cafes and restaurants for a sundowner before heading back to your yacht.
