MOTIVATION

CYCLING, WATER SPORTS, GOLF, AND MORE!

EXPERIENCE A WIDE VARIETY OF OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Training hard doesn’t mean having to train in harsh conditions, and there is no better motivator than practising and preparing for the sport you love on an island where the pleasant climate combines with beautiful Mediterranean surroundings - and first-rate amenities - to inspire success for the coming season.

Whether you just want to play for fun while relaxing in beautiful surroundings, or are professional athletes looking for winter training, there are facilities for everyone, from football and golf to water sports and hiking.

Take up a new sport or improve your skills. Practice your serve, learn how to tack or just go for a thrill. Experience the closest thing to being a Formula 1 driver by zooming round a karting track. Or try the waterpark for thrills and parasailing for a new sensation.

Cycling

Experience the island’s culture, history and wonderful scenery from the saddle of a bike.

A cycle tour enables you to come across things which you would probably miss from inside a car. A chance encounter with a local, a stunning landscape to linger over, the sights and sounds of nature from up close, an ancient ruin or a secluded cove.

Follow one of the many cycling routes or even make your own. Set the pace you desire whether training or leisure and feel your lungs with fresh air while making your bit to fight global warming and protect the environment.

Diving

Blessed with all the elements that make a diver’s paradise, Cyprus attracts visitors from all over the world for its favourable weather conditions, top-ranking wrecks and diverse marine life. With warm waters that range from 16-27 degrees almost all-year-round, the island enjoys one of the longest diving seasons in the Mediterranean, further enhanced by fantastic visibility – thanks to an absence of plankton. A range of wrecks, spectacular underwater caves and tunnels, and interesting paths await exploration – always with the promise of discovering something unique, from the remains of ancient amphora and stone anchors, to the exotic residents of their underwater worlds. And whilst the coastal reefs of the island range from natural to artificial, both share the same characteristics, acting as areas of reproduction, growth, feeding and refuge for a multitude of marine organisms.

Teeming with a wide variety of colourful fish, sponges, coral, sea anemones, octopus, mussels and sea urchin, the waters of the island are abundant with life, whilst shy sea turtles can also be spotted regularly, along with the rarer Mediterranean Seal.
So, whether you are an experienced diver or trying the sport for the first time, Cyprus offers the ideal diving experience. And if you need a helping hand in locating an accredited dive school, the Cyprus Dive Centre Association lists all its members: http://cyprusdiving.org.cy/.

Sailing

The endless blue seas of Cyprus offer the perfect setting for enjoying sailing and yachting all year round, thanks to their favourable temperatures and flat waters, and a lack of pollutants. Combined with ideal wind conditions, and a stunning, rugged coastline, these factors attract both enthusiasts and professionals from all over the world.

A variety of important races and regattas also take place throughout the year for the sport of sailing, whilst leisure yachters can find community and facilities at two marinas, five ports and numerous bays. All the relevant information for sailing on the island, along with the calendar of events, and important guidelines can be found on the website of the Cyprus Sailing Federation (CYSAF) – a member of the International Sailing and the European Sailing Federations (ISAF and EUROSAF).

Recreational, elite and professional sports persons in all, manner of sports and levels of competence, could use cycling and running to suitably prepare for better performances in the their own chosen sports, as well. However for cyclists and runners, Cyprus is very close to being an ideal travel destination to receive them and cater to everything they might need, for the start of the competitive or recreational active sport season.

Hiking

Perhaps the best way to see a country is on foot. If you love the great outdoors or want to improve your fitness, hiking is ideal. Leave your car and experience the culture and nature of the island in the best possible way.

Cyprus has numerous signposted paths or nature trails, some more challenging than others, but all are a feast for the senses, especially in the springtime when you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of nature at first hand.
