News from one of Britain’s leading seaside getaway OTA’s, On the Beach, reveals Cyprus beaches as one of this Spring’s most popular attractions for UK travelers. According to figures from Cyprus, some 200,000 people bathed in the azure waters off Cyprus in April alone.
Cyprus Looking Good
A significant rise in overall tourism were up as well, but UK, German, and Russian travelers made up the lion’s share of visits. Alistair Daly, Marketing Director of On the Beach, had this to say about the stats:
“During the winter and spring holiday seasons we saw a large number of Brits book holidays to Cyprus. This destination is always quite popular, yet it has certainly seen a surge in 2011, which we expect to continue throughout the summer. Indeed, our customers continue to place Cyprus at the top of their wish lists.”
Cyprus is emerging as yet another developed destination for those seeking not only sun and fun, but the nightlife the jet set have become addicted to at places like Ibiza and others around the Med. Set amid the ruins of antiquity, and add in a “newness factor” for many travelers, and Cyprus clearly represents a fresh take on beach combing frolic.
