    I suggest that you carry your very old luggage or bag because you will find very cheap bags and Leather suitcases in Cyprus.

It is something that I always write first in my list when in Cyprus,...

    Cyprus uses the typical UK style - 3 pin electric sockets, so no need to bring 2 pin adapters. However, if you are prone to mosquito bites you may want to bring or buy a plug in repellent and for this, you will usually need to bring a shaver adapter to convert a 3 pin socket to a 2 pin.

    The intensity of the sun in Cyprus is no joke. The island lies at approximately 33 degrees and the ultraviolet rays reflect easily off the sand and the water magnifying their power to burn your skin in a very short period of time.
