It is the year round weather that makes a golf holiday in Cyprus extremely attractive. Cyprus is known for its beaches, historic ruins dating back to the 7th century BC and lip smacking cuisine. Known for the mythical goddess of love, Aphrodite, references to her are to be found everywhere. The Mediterranean island really does feel like a gift from the goddess, providing for plenty of enjoyment and relaxation. Relaxation or challenge also comes in the form of six golf courses on the island. For those seeking more adventure, there are superb hiking trails and even “skiing” at the right time of the year.
