As a Mediterranean island with a varied and sometimes rugged terrain, Cyprus can offer adventure activities as diverse as hiking, mountain biking, jeep excursions and bird watching or you can also get involved in the various aviation sports available such as gliding, parachute jumping, hang-gliding and aeromodelling.
The favourable climate conditions on the island also provide ample diversity in sea-sports enjoyment such as sub-aqua diving, water skiing, wind-surfing, sailing, canoeing, parachuting, yachting, etc.
Cyprus has many choices for a night out ranging from traditional entertainment such as folk music and dancing at a tavern or restaurant, to the international club scene of Ayia Napa, widely recognized for its British House/Garage sounds, up-and-coming DJs and festive atmosphere. The action usually gets started late – towards midnight, unless the club also doubles as a restaurant or bar.
