Adventure seekers and celebrities now frequent the sandy shores. Luxury hotels make Cyprus a hot spot for diving holidays, hiking tours, and golf trips. In fact, Cyprus itself is visited by 2.5 million tourists each year, that’s roughly three-times larger than its population.
As the recent boom in tourism drives the local economy, investors are looking to take advantage of real estate options. Economically, Cyprus is enticing as the government is actively making strides to foster the development of its business sector.
