Holiday with kids in Cyprus is always a good idea. Cyprus has been a popular family holiday destination for a number of years now due to its excellent year-round climate and famous Blue Flag beaches. It is also popular with lovers of Greek culture as the hospitality here is legendary, and its combination of fantastic beaches and wonderful food has made this island a top choice for families. So, the children will love the beaches and the swimming pool but what do you do with them when they get bored? Well, don’t worry because we have listed the top things to do with kids in Cyprus to ensure a fun filled trip.
Horse Riding – Eagle Mountain Ranch, Paphos
This is one of the best places for horse riding in the whole of Cyprus, and we highly recommend the amazing horseback safari tours which depart both early morning and late afternoon. The tours include a pick up and drop off service, an introductory course and a picnic. And if you don’t want to spend a full day here you can choose a shorter ride, which will last one and a half hours or if this isn’t quite long enough you can opt for a three hour ride. The horses there are clearly well looked after and the routes are great for all levels of riders, so don’t panic if you’re a beginner. This activity can also be a fun way to explore Cyprus’ stunning countryside.
Aphrodite Waterpark – Paphos
With a huge selection of thrilling rides this waterpark provides a fantastic family day out. They offer everything from fast white knuckle rides to baby pools and lazy rivers. And when it is time to refuel there are plenty of places where you can grab a drink or a bite to eat as we know playing in the water can make you hungry. There are also lockers positioned near the entrance of the park where you store all your belongings, so you don’t need to worry about carrying them around.
Spend a perfect family day surrounded by the magical sounds and colors of nature. Enrich your senses in this beautiful environment of lakes, ponds and gardens. Pafos Zoo is committed to animal care and creates compelling experiences that connect people with wildlife and inspire personal responsibility for conserving the natural world. One of the island’s leading tourist attraction. Its home to an extensive variety of birds and animals from every corner of the planet. The collection of parrots and venomous snakes is one of the largest in Europe! Pafos Zoo offers a great wildlife experience and we are situated just a few minutes from Pafos. There you can see: giraffe, monkeys, meerkats, crocodile, kangaroos, albino wallabies, mouflon, white lions, tigers and many more.
George’s Fun Bus – Paphos
The tour starts at a prehistoric settlement so you get to see how people lived in this primeval period. Next there is a stop at an art college, but this isn’t just any art college. In fact, the building has been built out of recycled materials so if you want to teach your children to be Eco-friendly this is sure to do the trick as they will be amazed when they find out that the college has been built from rubbish.
Dinosaur Park – Ayia Napa
Another activity for dinosaur lovers is Dinosaur Park. Fans of these ancient creatures will be amazed when they come across lifelike dinosaurs as they move and make noises. Little ones often enjoy spotting the different species of dinosaurs as they wander along the trail. Once you have finished the trail don’t forget to visit the park’s shop to buy those essential souvenirs.
Play Planet My Mall Limassol
This indoor arcade complete with a kids land has its fair share of activities and games to keep children as young as two fully occupied. Older children and teens, on the other hand, will enjoy battling each other in the video games arcade. You’ll also find that My Mall has a bowling alley and an ice skating rink so you won’t be short of things to do on your visit.
Star Leisure Mini Golf – Protaras
Not only does this park have a 19-hole mini golf course, but it also has trampolines, bumper cars and a mini train which makes its way around the grounds daily. It’s safe to say that this place offers a fun filled day out for all ages.
All kids are different and they all have different interests but as you can see Cyprus offers something for most families. Whether they enjoy animals excursions, waterparks or a slice of history there is plenty on offer here.
