Stepping Ashore Cyprus on a Superyacht

From the second you catch a glimpse of Cyprus from the sundeck of your luxury superyacht you are sure to fall in love. Hazy black mountains fringe the horizon surrounded by miles upon miles of shallow warm turquoise waters, fine silky sands and secluded sands.

Hailed as the Playground of the Gods, Cyprus is tumbling with roman ruins, gushing waterfalls, sweet and sticky fig trees and fragrant eucalyptus spilling down the mountains. You can truly indulge in an ancient inspired escape to the sun, one adorned with fine wines, rich culture and evocative history.

Cyprus is best explored on a luxury superyacht like MY Starfire. The supreme elegance and design of MY Starfire is not only blissfully comfortable but can help you to explore the hidden shores and the carved coastline that makes Cyprus so special. With a stunning sundeck you can chill in the hot tub, dive from the deck into cobalt waters and sleep soundly surrounded by soft fabrics before you step ashore on the chic and charming island of Cyprus.

Jewels and Ceramics

After a delightful brunch on the sundeck of your superyacht why not take the time to splash some cash in the boutique splendor of Protaras. You can find everything in this up-market spot from exquisite fashion names to handcrafted delights. Be sure to pick up some intricately designed Byzantine inspired jewelry and Cypriot inspired pottery to take back home.

Historical Splendor

The shores of Cyprus are steeped in history and boast no less than three UNESCO world heritage sites. Travel back in time with a visit to the city of Paphos, once a majestic hub but now a delightful sprawl of crumbling ruins, cracked mosaics, tombs and palatial remnants.

Mother Nature’s Bounty

You may be surprised to find that on the natural shores of Cyprus you can ski down the High Troodas Mountains in the morning and splash in warm blue and green waters in the afternoon. Swimming around Aphrodite’s Rock near Pissouri is a must, the sweet Cyprian landscape, the rejuvenating waters and the crystal clear vision make this one of the best bathing spots on the whole of the island.

Divers can indulge in one of the best diving spots in the world as they duck down to discover the preserved cargo wreck of Zenobia. If you don’t feel like getting wet then sitting on the sun splashed shores of Lara and watching the gentle turtles edge from the sands and into the sea makes for a remarkable show.

Ancient Hamam Treatments

Head to the old town of Nicosia for a relaxing treatment in the 14th century surroundings of the Omeriye Hamam. Ornate high vaulted ceilings and beautiful carved arches provide the perfect setting for sitting and sweating out your toxins. Throw a touch of exfoliation, cold water splashing and of course a rigorous pummeling and you will leave feeling reborn.
