5 Good Reasons to Fly to Paphos – Ryanair

Just in case you needed an excuse (or five) to fly to Paphos in Cyprus. 

On our opinion (Artemis Cynthia Complex Team) there are 1005 reason to visit Paphos, but as Ryanair says in their article – these are just extra 5.

1. The Weather

Paphos enjoys a subtropical climate with warm, sunny summers and mild winters. With summer temperatures averaging around 25C and winter temperatures hovering around a pleasant 15C, it’s the perfect place to escape northern Europe’s darker months. Soak up your supply of vitamin D and that all important vitamin sea – you’ll be all the better for it. 

2. The Food

Prepare for a rich, indulgent mix of Middle Eastern and Greek cuisine. Top of the must-try list is Halloumi. This slightly rubbery cheese made from goats milk/sheep’s milk is famous around the world – you’ll find it served hot with roast lamb, grilled, or cold with summer salads.  For a more detailed guide to what to eat in Paphos, check out our Foodie’s Guide to Paphos
