The island of Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea with a population of less than 1,000,000. Its 9,251 square kilometres encompass citrus and olive groves, pine forested mountains, and some of Europe’s cleanest beaches.
Also, it is the easternmost island in the Mediterranean Sea. Cyprus is located 65 miiles west of Syria, 45 miles south of Turkey and 200 miles north of Egypt. The island has a mild, typically Mediterranean climate, with abundant sunshine even in winter (well over 300 days per year) and very little rainfall.
In early Spring it is possible to ski on Mount Olympus and then swim in the sea later the same day.
