Cyprus is a magical island that is fun for all the family. No matter where you go there's always plenty of family entertainment on offer. Even in the areas outside of Paphos and Ayia Napa - the two main family-oriented resorts on the island - families will find a wealth of adventure activities that will keep them going from dawn 'til dusk.
In Paphos the fabulous Paphos Waterpark is an excellent day out for children and adults of all ages. There are water slides and chutes for kids who like their water rides fast and exciting, and there's slower water rides too. Paphos Waterpark caters for smaller children as well, an enclosed play area and shallow pool offering plenty of opportunities for a splash about.
Paphos has a bird park, aquarium and an 18-hole mini-golf adventure course (Island Cove). All are available at low entrance fees and will provide hours of entertainment for all the family.
Ayia Napa is a very family-friendly resort. There are always plenty of activities for kids and adults to enjoy in the town and on the beaches. In June each year, Ayia Napa gives itself totally over to the kids with its annual Childrens' Festival. Focused on the main square in Ayia Napa the festival has kids' shows and performances as well as stalls and games to play.
A little way outside of Ayia Napa is the Ayia Napa waterpark "WaterWorld". It is unlike any other water theme park you've ever been to, ancient Greek temples and statues of Greek Gods giving it a classical feel that adds to its excitement. Nearby is the Ayia Napa Marine Park where visitors can see dolphins and sea lions. But, if you're looking for something a little scarier, why not try the Dinosaur Park off Leoforos Nissi in the town (just behind McDonalds)!
In Limassol, families are treated to the Cyprus Donkey Sanctuary as well as two waterparks - The Water Mania waterpark and the Wet n' Wild waterpark. Both are excellent fun for kids. Further afield, Larnaka offers the chance to get up close and personal with camels at Camel World, while Nicosia provides access to one of the largest Ostrich farms in Europe.
As you can see, when you come to Cyprus with your family, you're guaranteed to return home with family memories to cherish for a lifetime.
