For the last five millennia, Cyprus has been jealously sought for its strategic position at the junction between Europe, Africa and Asia - engendering an immensely rich blend of influences and cultures. Past rulers of this sun-drenched by 90 miles isle, topped off by the central Troodos Mountains where you can ski in the Winter, have included the Ancient Greeks, Romans, Ottomans and us Brits , leaving behind our left-hand-driving and sovereign military bases - to name a few. An independent republic since , the Turks have nonetheless illegally occupied the north since , nominally in response to political instability precipitated by the military Junta in Greece - their land claim unrecognised by any other nation.
Mercifully, since , it is now pretty easy to cross the once-divisive yet still-monitored "Green Line". Hotel-brimming Limassol , to the south, makes a perfect base for exploring the historic riches, not only of its near surrounds - including Kourion theatre and palace , Kolossi castle linked to the Knights of the Order of St. John and Limassol Castle possibly where our Richard I married, housing a medieval museum - but of the whole island.
Remains of the Kourion Theatre and Palace Make sure to stop off at the Sanctuaries of Apollo and Aphrodite between Paphos and Limassol; and make the pilgrimage to the nearby legendary coastal Birthplace of Aphrodite : Chronos cut off his father Uranus' balls and chucked them in the sea, which duly foamed and gave birth to the Goddess of Love and Beauty, who calmly stepped ashore on Cyprus.
Sex or nudity in public is strictly illegal; if you meet someone nice outdoors, head somewhere private. Overt public displays of homosexuality, including holding hands, can prompt unwelcome attention in this still-Greek-Orthodox-Church-swayed society, so be discreet; although attitudes are changing - as so often, spearheaded by the young.
Cyprus is also home to clubbing capital Ayia Napa which is at the far eastern end of the south coast of the island. The oldest gay bar in Cyprus, Alaloum in Limassol nestles in a 15th Century building in a discreet little street just back from the Old Town seafront, aptly around the corner from the Cathedral. Open 10pm 'til late. To take airs, stroll the stretch of Molos Sculpture Park by the beach, level with - you guessed it - the Cathedral. Or check out the Dasoudi pine tree forest promenade area overlooking the sea, a little out east towards the Yermasoyia district.
When in Paphos, head straight for the Different Bar - a swish, modern, airy, trendy homo hub bang in the middle of the main nightlife district. For airs, check out the area around the old fort on the cute harbour, come dark. If in the capital Nicosia, you can be sure of a fun time in gay-friendly Scorpios Platinum Club.
