Visit the Old Fort at Paphos where there are often concerts and recitals on summer evenings, or go shopping in Larnaca or Nicosia in the Turkish part of the island.  Be sure to try traditional tapas in one of the many good local restaurants in each resort.   Europe’s biggest water park is a favourite for kids in Limassol, while Ayia Napa is the perfect combination of stunning beaches and top nightlife and entertainment.
