Beaches Good Enough for Aphrodite from Monarch

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 13, 2012) - Tourists have been flocking to Cyprus for generations to soak up the great atmosphere, enjoy the amazing food and revel in the vibrant nightlife of this sundrenched Mediterranean island. They don't tend to go for the beaches and that's where a lot of visitors miss a trick. Cyprus has some stunning beaches just waiting for you to explore.

Flights to Cyprus can be very reasonably priced and Monarch flights leave the UK most days. Once you get there, you'll find that the Cypriots are experts at welcoming tourists and everything you need is easily accessible.

Legend has it that Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was born on one of Cyprus's beaches. For the romantic visitor, walking hand in hand around the ancient sites and over warm golden sands is guaranteed to delight.

No matter what you're looking for in a beach holiday, whether it's adrenaline-filled water sports, relaxing and soaking up the sunshine or getting close to nature, Cyprus has a beach for you. Fig Tree Bay in Protaras will delight the water sports aficionado with its parasailing, water skiing, jet skiing and many varieties of inflatable rides. During the day, the beach is served by a lifeguard so you can swim in confidence. Those sun worshippers will simply adore Coral Bay with warm crystal clear waters, clean golden sands and plenty of facilities for everything you need. For nature lovers, Lara Bay is an unforgettable experience. Loggerhead turtles come here to lay their eggs between June and September. The beach is protected so you can't stay too long or put up umbrellas, but you could see something very special as the adult turtles arrive and the babies make their way into the sea.

Families travelling with young children need not miss out on the beach action. Nissi Beach is the perfect place to take the kids to the seaside, with clear, warm water, soft sands and family friendly restaurants for when tummies start to rumble. Cypriots love youngsters so you're guaranteed a warm welcome and any help you might require.

With its consistent Mediterranean climate and vibrant culture, a Cyprus beach holiday will please everybody, no matter what your reason for visiting.

Holidays to Cyprus are available from Monarch for as little as £374 in August. Monarch's scheduled flights depart from London Luton, London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham airports.
