Cyprus is an island rich in history and culture, that goes back over 1,000 years – making it one of the oldest civilisations in the Mediterranean.
White sandy beaches, wildflower meadows in the countryside and valleys of vineyards make Cyprus super photogenic – it’s also a great spot to visit if you love wine!
We’ve rounded up the 7 best places to visit on the island that are ideal for a Cyprus Instagram photo. Now all you have to do is book your flight…
Lefkara is one of the few villages in Cyprus where the houses are built almost entirely of local white stone, which contrasts beautifully with the terra cotta roofs. For extra prettiness, come in spring time when the almond trees are in full bloom.

5. Oniro by the Sea
With a name that translates to ‘Dream by the sea’, it’s no wonder that Oniro is gorgeous bar to take photographs at. There’s wonderful sunsets over the spectacular sea caves (which are lit up at night), but it’s the view of the Euro III shipwreck that puts this on our list.
6. Aelia Wellness Retreat
Want to stay in an eco-resort with mountain views? Of course you do. At Aelia Wellness Retreta on the outskirts of Nicosia, you will find opportunities for a Cyprus Instagram shot at every corner.
We love the natural wood and stone that’s a feature throughout the hotel.

The Love Bridge in Aiya Napa is one of the most beautiful natural attractions on the entire island, and it’s a tradition for couples to come here when on honeymoon.
An incredible natural rocky arch bridge that meets the crystal, turquoise and emerald sea – don’t visit Cyprus without getting some sunset photographs here.
