The Republic of Cyprus' larger towns and cities

Nicosia (Lefkosia): The last divided capital city on earth. Nicosia is a combination of old and new. One perfect example of this is the city's ancient heart, surrounded by the famous Venetian Walls, which are in their turn ringed by this vibrant city's modern, cosmopolitan commercial and financial districts.

Ayia Napa (Agia Napa): Although this resort has long held a reputation for its unruly nightlife, it has seen a dramatic change its approach to rowdy night clubbers over the past few years. These days Ayia Napa has once again become a far more family-orientated resort.

Coral Bay (Bay of Maa): This stretch of coast has long been regarded as one of the most beautiful in all of Cyprus. Towns such as Peyia, Ayios Georgios, and the bustling resort of Coral Bay itself, have consequently become a favourite with visitors from around the globe.

Kiti: To the south of Larnaca, Kiti is a well developed little community of about 10,000 residents. Bustling with shops, and home to the famous Panagia Angeloktisti church, the town is sandwiched between the seaside community of Pervolia, and Tersefanou, where Larnaca's much talked about golf course is due to be built (or not).

Larnaca Town (Larnaka): With a cosmopolitan atmosphere, the famous Finikoudes beach, plenty of Christian and historical monuments, and a string of bars and restaurants lining its eight hundred metre long promenade, Larnaca town is justifiably one of Cyprus' most popular holiday destinations.

Latchi (Latsi): Set a few miles from Polis, on the shores of Chrysochous Bay, Latchi is one of the most picturesque villages in Cyprus. Famed for its mellow atmosphere, its spectacular sunsets, and some of the finest seafood in Cyprus, this little town is a treasure.

Limassol Town (Lemesos): This busy city is the most important trade centre on the island. With a population of almost 200,000 it is the second largest city in Cyprus; it is also the busiest transit port in the Mediterranean Sea.

Makenzy: Though located close to the international airport, this southern suburb of Larnaca is widely seen as the town's playground. With a mile-long stretch of sandy beach and a wide variety of restauurants and other entertainments, Makenzy is about fun in the sun.

Oroklini (Voroklini): Along with the neighbouring village of Pyla, Oroklini and the surrounding area have become something of a favourite with expatriates living in the region. With a beach stretching for over two and a half miles, a huge assortment of restaurants and bars, and even a little nature reserve, it's no wonder that Oroklini continues to draw visitors back year after year.

Paphos Town (Pafos): Paphos is a firm favourite with immigrants and holiday makers alike, due to its beautiful surroundings and it reputation as Cyprus' playground. Packed with water sports & leisure facilties, bars & restaurants, historical monuments, and home to a water park, Paphos has something for everyone.

 

Paralimni: Since becoming the defacto capital of the free Famagusta province in 1974, Paralimni has evolved from a sleepy little village into one of the most popular destinations for holidaymakers and home buyers alike.

Pervolia (Perivolia): Unlike the village of Oroklini to the north, where almost 65% of the population are now British, this small seaside town to the south of Larnaca has retained a more traditional atmosphere. Here local Cypriots, resident expatriates, and a small number of holidaymakers cheerfully interact in day-to-day life, and in the social setting of Pervolia's cobbled village crentre.

Peyia (Pegia): This charming village with its glorious natural surroundings and majestic views is located in the hills above Coral Bay. It's proximity to the famous Coral Bay beach, and the resort of Paphos have made Peyia village one of the most popular places on the island with British tourists and homebuyers.

Pissouri: Playing host to many festivals each year, home to some truly outstanding seafood restaurants, and boasting an excellent beach, Pissouri is a charming seaside village set on the coast about half way between Paphos and Limassol.

Protaras: The east coast of the island is home to some of the finest beaches in Cyprus. Towns such as Protaras and Ayia Napa are now among the island's main resorts as a direct result. A former fishing village, Protaras is now one of the favourite destinations in the Republic with tourists from around the world, many of whom return there year after year.

Polis: Polis and its neighbour Latchi are among the most scenically beautiful locations on the island, not only because of their sweeping views of Chrysochous Bay, but also their proximity to the Akamas peninsula national park.Located about 45 minutes north of Paphos, Polis is a haven for those of you looking to escape the maddening crowds.

Pyla: This little community is one of three Cypriot villages actually located on the Green Line, the island's United Nations controlled buffer zone. Populated by a mixed population of Greek and Turkish Cypriots living side by side, home to a UN partol station as well as a small Medieval Keep, Pyla boasts an atmosphere like few other Cypriot communities.

Tersefanou (Tersephanou): Larnaca’s proposed championship golf course will be situated next to this village, should the go-ahead for this much-disputed project ever be given. With over €400,000,000 worth of property being constructed in Tersefanou village, and a large number of golf properties already sold, the resort's planning and construction delays are causing frustration for a great many people.

Don't forget about Taxes

Those of you looking to relocate to the Republic would be well advised to familiarise yourselves with Tax in Cyprus since, although the island's system is based on the British one, certain important differences do exist where income tax, capital gains tax and VAT are concerned.

Furthermore, Cypriot property transfer tax rates are quite high, but may be reduced through a number of personal allowances which you should inform yourself about.
