Tourism has traditionally been a vital driver of the Cyprus economy contributing more than 20% to the country’s GDP.
The island is blessed with sunshine for a great part of the year and its idyllic beaches, a large number of them being awarded with the famous Blue Flag designation, make Cyprus a favourite holiday destination for tourists.
Cyprus offers a wide range of tourist services which accommodate all types of holiday goers, from hiking trails and nature paths for the outdoor type, to luxury hotels and fine dining and wining.
Apart from its natural beauty, excellent weather and breath-taking sceneries, Cyprus strives to enhance its competitiveness as a premium touristic destination, diving into niche areas, upgrading its offering and developing new experiences.
Strategic large-scale projects, such as luxury resorts, marinas in all major seafront cities and the new integrated casino resort, are expected to further stimulate this booming industry.
