ACCESSIBLE HOLIDAYS TO CYPRUS with Can be Done
Escape to Sunny Cyprus
We make sure it Can be Done
The peaceful and pristine island country of Cyprus hides a rich historical story behind every rock and ruin. But whether you want to indulge in history and culture or dream away the days at the ‘blue flag’ beaches with their blue-green sea – we can create an accessible stay and itinerary all the way from your front door to your beach hotel and back.
When visiting Cyprus on one of our disabled holidays, we recommend flying into Larnaka or Pafos International Airport. Flights from the UK take around 4 hours and 30 minutes – we can check your airline’s special assistance services for you before you leave. Once you touch down at your destination, accessible washrooms, charging stations for electric wheelchairs, bus ramps and additional assistive services are available at both of the airports mentioned, so you can feel right at ease upon arrival.
We can make all your travel arrangements for you, so you can have a worry-free start and end of your holiday.
Soaking Up Some Sun
With a choice of 35 accessible beaches, each of them equally stunning, pristine and relaxing, you won’t find yourself short of sun, sea and sand. On Polis Chrysochous Municipal Beach and Vathia Gonia Beach an innovative system is in place called Seatrac, which offers full access to the sea for the disabled. Make the most of the island’s subtropical climate while you’re there!
We can advise you on which beaches to visit with your specific disability.
Ancient Ruins and Rituals
In the Amathus area, one of the more wheelchair-friendly parts of Cyprus in terms of pavements, cycling lanes and beach paths, you can find the incredible Amathus ruins, which are partly wheelchair accessible. Let the stories of this ancient archaeological site transport you as far back as 1100 BC, and marvel at the remains of the Temple of Aphrodite and the Tombs of the Iron Age period. Our recommended accessible hotel, Elias Beach, is just a short drive away from this highlight.
Give us a call to discuss the possibilities of a history-focussed holiday to Cyprus.
Eating and Drinking
If you want a truly mouth-watering, authentic Cypriot food experience, go out for a Meze meal. Meze is the name for a collection of small dishes, served as appetisers or as a full course, and they make for the perfect way to sample the rich and diverse flavours of Greek/Cypriot food. There are several great restaurants within walking distance of our recommended accommodation options which are wheelchair friendly.
Some background knowledge on the island you are visiting will make you appreciate your stay even more! The Cyprus Museum in Nicosia is the oldest and largest archaeological museum in Cyprus and features an entrance ramp, a chair lift to visit the museum rooms, special parking space (although not marked), and special restrooms.
