Cyprus is in the Middle East, an island in the Mediterranean Sea, south of Turkey, and is a central plain with mountains to the north and south and scattered but significant plains along southern coast, with a UN controlled buffer zone between northern and southern halves. In terms of land mass and popolation, Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, after the Italian islands of Sicily and Sardinia. It measures 9,251 square kilmoetres (3,572 square miles), measuring 240 kilometres (149 miles) in length and 100 kilometres (62 miles) in width. Turkey lies some 75 kilometres (47 miles) to the north. Other neighbouring territories include to the east, Syria and Lebanon, to the south east Israel, to the south Egypt and to the north west, Greece. The island is dominated by two mountain ranges, the Troodos Mountains and the Kyrenia Range, encompassing the central plain of Mesaoria. The island is divided into two parts, some two thirds, The Republic of Cyprus and the other third, The Republic of Northern Cyprus. There is also a United Nations controlled 'buffer zone' giving light to some of the ongoing politics of the island.

The total population of Cyprus at the end of 2005 was just over 1 million, comprising 871,036 (plus 110,200 foreign permanent residents) in the territory controlled by the government of the Republic of Cyprus and 256,644 (2006 census) in Northern Cyprus. However, estimates for the North of Cyprus vary greatly from 300,000 to 500,000. The Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, whilst sharing many customs, maintain a distinct identity based on ethnicity, religion, language and close ties with their respective homelands. The Cypriot economy is quite prosperous and diversified, recent estimates by the IMF place the per caipta GDP at just above the European Union. The most significant sectors of the economy are tourism, shipping and financial services. The Republic of Cyprus adopted the Euro in 2008, whilst Northern Cyprus currency is the Turkish Lira.

The largest towns and cities in Cyprus are, Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca (Scala), Farnagusta, Paphos, Kyrenia, Protoras, Morphou, Aradhippou and Paralimni. The most popular tourist areas are; Ayia Napa, Maa, Akhelia, Kouklia, Lemesos, Girne (Kyrenia), Kakopanayiotis, Larnaca, Leftkosia, Limasol, Paphos (Pafos), Pedoulas, Pitsylia, Platres and Troodos Massif. By far and away, Limmasol is the most popular resort with some 10 miles of coastline against a backdrop of the Troodos mountains. 

Cyprus has the warmest climate and the warmest winters in the Mediterranean area of the European Union. The summer holiday season lasts about 8 months (April to November) and the typical temperature around the coastal area is a pleasant average of 24C with highs of perhaps 33C in July and August. Even in the remain 4 months of the year, temperatures can top 20C. During the summer months Limmasol's temperatures are 4 or 5C lower than coastal areas. Winters are changeable, with cold and warmer weather alternating. Conditions also vary with elevation. The Troodos Massif often gets some snow in winter and it is possible to ski on Mt Olympus in the South from early January until the middle of March.

Cyprus has several heliports and two international airports: Larnaca International Airport and Paphos International Airport. A third airport, Ercan International Airport operates in the Turkish Cypriot administered area with direct flights limited to Turkey.

General information

According to the Cyprus Tourist Organisation, some 1.3m British nationals visit Cyprus every year. Crimes against tourists is uncommon, however, the number of passports stolen is high. The FCO reports that room safes and hotel safety boxes continue to be targeted by thieves, especially in the Paphos area. Cyprus immigration authorities have confirmed that EU passport holders with a TRNC stamp in their passport will not experience difficulties when entering the Republic of Cyprus, a popular misconception.

It is possible to travel to the north of Cyprus from the south by crossing at several checkpoints. Ledra Palace and Ledra Street checkpoints are restricted to pedestrians. You can take hired car through the relevant checkpoints, however, rental cars are not insured for use in the north and hirers are advised to verify this information with the hire company. Those without the correct insurance will be refused entry.

There are strict controls on the quantities and types of goods that can be purchased in the north and brought into the south, goods, including cigarettes, may be confiscated at the checkpoint and a heavy fine imposed. The Republic of Cyprus has, for example, a restriction of 40 cigarettes per person. The FCO advises; British and other foreign nationals who have entered Cyprus through the north are considered by the Government of the Republic of Cyprus to have entered Cyprus through an illegal port of entry. The Government of the Republic of Cyprus therefore reserves the right to fine any EU (including British) citizen for illegal entry if they cross into the south. In practice, their current policy is not to do so.

There are several modern motorways in Cyprus. A series of motorways runs along the coast from Paphos east to Ayia Napa, with two motorways running inland to Nicosia, one from Limassol and one from Larnaca. The Republic of Cyprus has 10,663 kilometres (6,626) of paved roads (around 60% of the total), whilst the north has 1,370 kilometres of paved road (58%). However, deaths on the road (per 100,000 of population) are more than twice the UK average. Tourists are permitted to drive on UK driving licences. Cypriot driving regulations are similar to those of the UK and driving is on the left-hand side of the road. You can receive heavy fines if you drive without wearing a seat belt or ride a motorbike without a crash helmet. Heavy fines are also imposed if you use a mobile telephone or are under the influence of alcohol while driving. When hiring a car, moped, boat, jet ski or other vehicle, check that it is road or sea worthy and that you have appropriate insurance cover and safety equipment.
