According to a report by cntraveller.com, Cyprus stands out among the destinations most sought-after on Google in 2023. This comes in a year that has seen a return to pre-pandemic levels. Destinations that experienced significant drops in visitation in previous years are now witnessing a notable resurgence. Cyprus, as indicated by arrival statistics, ranks an impressive 6th in the top ten most searched destinations based on Google data for 2023.

The country is also recognized as one of the world’s premier diving destinations, offering nature enthusiasts ample opportunities to explore the sea. History lovers can wander through Byzantine churches, and the destination’s vineyards make it an ideal choice for wine enthusiasts.
