Cyprus: Can't choose between north and south, help!

Jump to last reply

We are going to Cyprus for a week in end Sept/early Oct. We like to avoid touristy areas and crowds, though of course we make exceptions for historical sites. We are mostly interested in enjoying nature - including beaches if there are nice one - and food and wine. I gather from my research that the south is quite touristy, but are there still some less busy/unspoiled areas in Akamas Peninsula and Troodos mountains?

It's hard to find anything reliable online about the northern coastline/landscape other than what you find on villa sale websites which are not necessarily the best source of information. Villa websites describe Karpaz peninsula as pristine, but some travel forums describe it as terribly dirty, rubbish everywhere. If anyone has some recent experience to share it would be much appreciated!

In general, based on our interests, where would you suggest we focus?
