Honeymoon in Cyprus or Greece or elsewhere?

Hi

Never been to Cyprus, would love to visit next year. Do you ever see Americans here or mostly UK tourists? Which areas would be great for a honeymoon? We have been to southern Turkey, not Greece, looking for exotic. Would Cyprus do? Or Greece or somewhere else? We love beaches, hiking, snorkeling and exploring. Would either rent a villa/apartment or hotel. Thanks

Not mostly UK tourists - all nationalities, including many Russians. Also a few Americans, some of who I chatted to were working in Europe and on holiday in Cyprus.

I wouldn't describe Cyprus as exotic - or Greece. For "exotic" I would look to Morocco, Egypt, Jordan.

These would give you an idea of what to expect in Cyprus

http://www.visitcyprus.com

And since you love beaches, there was a press release two days ago by the European Commission regarding the water quality. I quote from there

"All the bathing sites in Cyprus and Luxembourg were deemed ‘excellent’.

These countrieswere followed by Malta (99 % excellent), Croatia (95 %) and Greece (93 %). At the other

end of the scale, European Union Member States with the highest proportion of sites with

a ‘poor’ status were Estonia (6 %), the Netherlands (5 %), Belgium (4 %), France (3 %),

Spain (3 %) and Ireland (3 %)."

I also would not describe Cyprus as exotic, but for my taste it is still romantic, colourful and fun. It is also big enough to satisfy a variety of interests ( history, museums, architecture, sports, nightlife) and small enough to offer hospitality, friendly and relaxed atmosphare and be easily expored.

Enjoy
