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.
The ideal location for a Cyprus golf holiday is Paphos. It is located on the southwest coast of the island and is known for its harbour and spectacular ancient ruins. It provides for plenty to do when not playing golf. The four golf courses are also easily accessed, at no more than a 20-30 minute drive. For more of the party scene, golfers can choose to stay in Limassol known for its nightlife. The drive is longer, but only a little bit.
While there are a total of six golf courses, typical Cyprus golf tours cover four of them. Hence, generally speaking the most popular Cyprus golf holiday packages are a week long with four rounds of golf. This makes for a leisurely holiday leaving plenty of time to explore the glorious island.
Almost anytime of the year is good for a golf holiday in Cyprus. However, there are some rainy days in the winter months, with December and January having the most of them. Nothing disruptive, but if the rain gets too cold for you, you can avoid this period.
