Offering everything from luxurious mountain resorts to scenic fishing villages, and being the reputed birthplace of Aphrodite, Cyprus is often lauded as one of the best superyacht charter destinations in the Mediterranean. The sub-tropical climate means this is one of the hottest places in the Med, and the island enjoys more than double the sunshine hours of northern Europe, so there’s no better way of exploring than on a luxury yacht.
There are three notable nature reserves on Cyprus. For hiking and biking in the summer, head to the Troodos National Forest Park – which in the winter months doubles as a low-key ski resort. Scenic trails weave through the densely forested landscapes of the Akamas Nature Reserve, while White Rocks is where you can discover the island’s most secluded beaches.
With its many bars and clubs, Ayia Napa is a popular choice for the younger generation, while elsewhere the sophisticated dining scene is ubiquitous. Alternatively enjoy a delicious meal on board prepared by your trained chef using fresh local ingredients.
Combining fantastic weather, ancient cultures and modern amenities, Cyprus is an ideal year-round yachting destination.
