Cyprus is back on the map for tourists to get some winter sun.

There was a 30 per cent rise in passengers to Cyprus in 2017 compared to the previous year, according to Sunvil, the holiday specialist company.

This is higher than the Cyprus Tourist Organisation’s recent report of a 14.7 per cent increase in tourists to the island. 

Paphos, a city based on the southwest coast of Cyprus, was also the European Capital of Culture for 2017.

Brits travelling from London can reach the island in just four hours and 25 minutes. 

Cyprus is host to a number of beaches, which are inhabited by turtles and exotic birds. It also has everything from Byzantine churches to wine routes among the mountains.

For those looking to book some winter sun, they should also bear in mind temperature can reach up to 20 degrees in Cyprus during December.
