Hire a car in Cyprus
The third-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is a popular destination for holidaymakers.
Cyprus has a mythical past, famous as the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite and home to a trove of ancient treasures. This glorious republic can take credit for the oldest wine in the world, the strangest and squeakiest cheese on the planet, and mouflon: wild and apparently shy sheep.
From the preserved Venetian walls surrounding Nicosia, to the quaint villages of Kakopetria, Cyprus has much more to offer than its gorgeous coastline. And hiring a car is the perfect way to discover all its secrets.
Cyprus driving advice
Unlike the majority of the world, Cyprus road users drive on the left. This is a welcome surprise for UK visitors, but for many other visitors it’s a case of getting used to the ‘other side.’
Keep your lights on half an hour before sunset and half an hour after sunrise. Police are known to impose fines if you do not conform to this rule.
Have your licence with you in the car in case you are stopped. Also have all your car rental and insurance details.
Do your research before you head out on any day trips. Sometimes the road quality can deteriorate and, whilst you may be comfortable with this, the car rental agent may not be. Plan ahead and try to avoid dirt tracks or any roads where you are likely to damage the car.
Many fuel stations will be attended, so you probably won’t need to fill the tank yourself. And, if you can spare some loose change as a small tip, it will be highly appreciated.
The summer temperatures in Cyprus can soar. Always keep bottles of water with you in the car, and if you can get hold of a sunshade for the car when it’s parked, even better.
For unspoiled and quiet: Try the Akamas Peninsula. Not only are there a collection of stunning sandy retreats, you can see the protected turtles of Lara Beach as well as an abundance of plant and wildlife living in the extensive national park on this cape.
For lively and exciting: go for Ayia Napa. You’ll have your pick of tempting bars and seafood tavernas, and whilst you won’t have the beaches to yourself, they certainly are beautiful.
Cyprus is littered with lovely monasteries and churches but if you plan on visiting some, remember to cover up.
Kleftiko, stifado and halloumi are must-trys if you want to experience authentic Cypriot cuisine.
The Capital of Culture 2017 is a hugely popular place to holiday in Cyprus. It’s a great base because if you don’t want to drive everyday, Paphos itself offers a spectrum of things to do.
Amble along sun-baked streets punctuated with citrus trees, taste ancient wine, find dining delights and relax on the beach – it’s all possible in Paphos.
You can partake in some fairly unexpected activities for a beach resort. A sought-after choice for visitors is the Eagle Mountain Ranch, where you can trek the hills on horseback. Head into the dusty wilds on a sunset expedition and capture the city and ocean below in the glowing, evening light.
Around the corner, wildflowers grow amongst the famous architectural remains of Kato. Intricate mosaics and impressive Greek columns are both fine examples of the country’s heritage displayed here.

Limassol’s highlight is its marina, filled with shops and restaurants along the waterside. Endless palm trees line the 13km promenade – a peaceful place to stroll after a day in the car (or jog if you’re feeling energetic!).
Water sports are popular here as well as Fasouri Watermania – the local waterpark.
Whilst the surrounding region may be known for its buzzing nightlife, the city of Larnaca is filled with culture and history.
Nearby, get to know the local flamingos at Larnaca Salt Lake, or take to the water and experience one of the world’s best shipwreck diving sites, Zenobia.
Deep in the heart of a forest of pine, Platres sits at the foot of the Troodos range, making it a great base for lovers of the outdoors.
Expect to see the Caledonia and Millomeris Waterfalls – the highest on the island – traditional monasteries and the local village of Omodos whilst you’re there.
A force of nature
The Troodos Mountains
The stunning Troodos Mountains are also worth adding to your list. In the centre of the island stands the range’s main peak: Mount Olympus.
As you can imagine, the area is a mecca for nature enthusiasts, and the rugged terrain is covered in trees which have stood for hundreds of years, shaping the landscape.
The mountains offer beautiful hiking trails, sensational views of the island, as well as pristine ski slopes during the winter months.
