Six large sculptures are also ready to be places under water once the relevant permits have been given.

There's no shortage of ancient sites in Cyprus but Kourion is the pick of the bunch. Romantically situated across a coastal cliff with tumbling views of the countryside and Mediterranean below, it's a magical place. The entire site is vast, but the most famous places to visit while here are the theater and the House of Eustolios, which holds a clutch of fine, well-preserved mosaics. For those with more time up their sleeves, the large Byzantine basilica area is wonderfully picturesque with its tumbled columns and scraps of mosaic floor.

Easygoing Larnaca, on the island's southeast side, may be a seaside resort, but it's kept its local soul. This is by far the most laid-back base for holidaymakers here. All the facilities for sun- and sand-based fun can be found, but the old crumbling Turkish Quarter (called Skala) and ornate Agios Lazaros (Church of St. Lazarus) give the town an interesting historical edge, while the center itself has retained the atmosphere of a proper workaday town rather than just a summer resort. Even better, the salt lake, just to Larnaca's west, is packed full of flocks of pink flamingos during spring, and plenty of hill villages and cultural tourist attractions lie in the surrounding hinterland.

If castles had cuteness competitions, Kolossi would surely come up trumps. This tiny but perfectly formed castle just outside of Limassol is an old Crusader stronghold and a reminder of Cyprus' importance for the Europeans during the Holy Land Crusades. First held by the Knights of St. John, the castle was used as a commandery for the area, with an excellent location looking out over the coast line. Today, the castle's appeal is mostly down to its dollhouse proportions and its tranquil position amid snoozy Kolossi village.

Even along Cyprus' buzzing south coast there are regions where you can escape the crowds. Cape Greco is an impossibly pretty coastal national park with a variety of walking trails that start just east of the resort of Agia Napa. There is a wonderful variety of local flora here, particularly many of Cyprus' endemic wild orchids that bloom in early spring but the real highlight is the absolutely gorgeous coastal scenery with azure blue sea beyond. The trails stretch all the way to Cape Greco point, which is the island's most southerly tip.

With so many archaeological sites, Cyprus is packed full of museums, but the Cyprus Museum in the capital Nicosia is where you go to pull together all of the island's history. Extremely well-curated, the museum takes visitors on a journey from the Neolithic age right up to the Ottoman era using beautiful artifacts to show the sophisticated artistry of each period. The standout exhibits are the huge collection of terra-cotta votive statues that date from the 7th century BC. Even if you're based on the coast, you should definitely make a half-day trip to the capital just to view the museum

Situated 4 km east of the centre of the popular resort of Agia Napa - on the road between Cape Gkreko and Protaras - the 200-metre long beach of Konnos is one of the most picturesque on the island. The last beach delineating the boundaries between Agia Napa and Paralimni, Konnos is small and idyllic, and covered in fine golden sand. Its calm and crystal clear seawaters are sheltered from heavy winds. Facilities on the beach include toilets, changing rooms, sun beds, umbrellas, a beach bar with music, and water sports facilities. There is also a transit point for small boats as the adjacent beaches provide bays for anchoring boats and diving. There are high-end hotels overlooking the beach, and restaurants and convenience stores nearby. The path towards the beach takes you through pine trees and greenery, whilst the view from the top is truly breathtaking. The beach offers access to all that the National Forest Park - which is on the Natura 2000 network of European protected sites - offers, including hiking and diving. Lifeguards with lifesaving equipment and first aid services are stationed at the beach from April - October. Access is easy by foot, bike or car, and there are car-parking facilities

Food Scene
Many tourist attractions of Cyprus are right next to the sea. Potamos is one of these places, located near Larnaca, where the sea enters the island, creating a river- like scenery. This picturesque fishing village is a beautiful place, where one can eat beautiful local fish.  It is one of the undiscovered heavens of solitude that takes the visitor instantly back in a breeze of hot, salty air to how the Cypriot coastline must have looked 50 years ago, being spared from the modern developmental frenzy which has hit all the touristy locations in the world.
