Records smashed as Cyprus tourism levels soar in 2018

Sea Caves CyprusTourism levels in Cyprus continued to soar for the period of January to October 2018, as the Greek island becomes the chosen destination for more than 3.67 million tourists in the first 10 months of 2018.

Tourist arrivals rose to 433,617 according to the Cyprus Statistical Service (Cystat), with the United Kingdom contributing to 24% of those flocking to its sparkling waters. 13.2% of them travelled to Cyprus on holiday whilst the remainder were visiting on business or seeing friends and family.

Recently named one of the Top 50 world destinations to visit in 2018, Cyprus has always been a go-to destination for many reasons, its short flight times and the beauty of its ancient cities allows itself for a relaxing break, whilst the hustle and bustle of Paphos and the surrounding areas are perfect for those looking for a little extra nightlife.

In terms of holiday destinations, Paphos was named one of the European Capitals of Culture in 2017 and the surge in visitors tell us all we need to know. The Independent called it “a lively west-coast city with gloriously crystal-clear water”. From taking an authentic historic tour, to sitting down and enjoying a southern European Meze or grabbing a few drinks at the Aphrodite’s Rock Brewing Company, there’s plenty to keep visitors busy.
