General Info - Cyprus is an island lying in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, close to the Asian mainland. It is situated south of Turkey, west of the Lebanon, Syria, and Israel, north of Egypt and east of Greece.

Families taking a yacht charter holiday will enjoy the wide variety of activities Cyprus holds for both children and adults. Couples will find themselves happily alone on empty beaches or wandering through quiet villages. There are truly worlds to discover in this eminently accessible island, where the service is extraordinary and the people are as very friendly.

We have boats in Larnaka Marina located in the town and some 15 minutes by road from Larnaca Airport. Facilities within the marina include hot showers, food and provisions store and coffe shop. There are various cafes, taverns and restaurants within walking distance of the marina. The yacht cruising area is restricted to Cyprus Waters under the control of the Republic of Cyprus. The ports Kyrenia, Famagusta, Karavostasi are out of bounds. Yachts chartered in the south of Cyprus should not proceed further than Pomos fishing harbour on the Northwest coast and Paralimni port on the east coast.

The cuisine of Cyprus is varied and includes Halloumi, a cheese made from a mix of goat and sheep's milk. It is commonly served sliced and grilled as an appetizer. Seafood dishes of Cyprus include calamari, octopus in red wine, red mullet and sea bass. Cucumber and tomato are used widely in Cypriot cuisine. Other common vegetable preparations include potatoes in olive oil and parsley, pickled cauliflower and beets, kolokasi, taro and asparagus. Meat dishes can be marinated in dried coriander seeds and wine, and eventually dried and smoked, such as lounza, charcoal-grilled lamb, pork and chicken, sheftalia is minced meat wrapped in mesentery are some of the traditional delicacies of the island.

History -The name Cyprus has an uncertain origin. One suggestion is that it comes from the Greek word for the Mediterranean cypress tree (Cupressus sempervirens). Cyprus is also called "the island of Aphrodite", since in Greek mythology; the goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite was born on the island.

Cyprus is a former British colony and gained independence in 1960 and became a Commonwealth republic in 1961. In 1974, following years of inter communal violence between ethnic Greeks and Turks Turkey invaded and occupied one third of the island. This led to the displacement of thousands of Cypriots and the establishment of a separate Turkish Cypriot political entity in the north. This dispute continues and the United Nations maintains a buffer zone between the two factions.
