An island of 2 halves, it’s almost a given that you’ll stick largely to the Greek side of Cyprus when you visit.

After all, the beaches of Paphos, Limassol and Larnaca are hard to pass by and the wonderful Trodos mountain area is a feast of traditional culture and amazing villages away from the crowds.

For a Brit, renting a car and driving in Cyprus is easy thanks to the island’s left hand drive and the ability it gives you to get out of the main resorts is unmissable.

Also, if you do get the chance, I highly recommend you head the island capital and last divided capital in Europe – Nicossia – to see the Green Line here still manned by UN protection soldiers.

While you’ll have to leave the hire car on the Greek side, you can grab your bag and head over, on foot, to the Turkish side to explore an altogether different type of Cyprus.

You can also stay on Turkish side and there’s some fab hiking here too, so don’t miss it for the complete Cyrpus experience.
