Cyprus hits the spot for sport

Cyprus offers a wide choice of sports facilities – from gyms to training grounds, from Olympic swimming pools to mountain biking routes, there’s everything the modern athlete could ask for.
One of the world’s favourite holiday destinations, Cyprus also has an impressive choice of accommodation, from self-catering apartments to luxury hotels. When considering where to stay, it’s worth remembering that many hotels provide fully equipped fitness centres and health spas with qualified personnel – the ideal way to train and relax.
A gateway between Europe and the Middle East, Cyprus enjoys easy flight connectivity with all major European countries and beyond.
Many international sports bodies have already recognised Cyprus as the ideal training destination. And it’s easy to see why National Olympic Committees from a number of countries have chosen Cyprus as their pre-Olympic Games training destination.
Medical care in Cyprus is of the highest standard, combining advanced equipment and facilities with the expertise of highly skilled practitioners.
The safe and friendly atmosphere also encourages athletes to bring families for an enjoyable break in the sun. Great restaurants, friendly cafes and great beaches make Cyprus the perfect place to unwind and relax.
Medical and rehabilitation facilities are of the highest standard in Cyprus, combining advanced medical equipment with the expertise of highly-skilled practitioners. Sports stadiums and venues offer first-aid equipment while regional medical centres and hospitals can cater for almost any eventuality.
Not only is Cyprus the ideal place to receive treatment for sports-related injuries, it’s also perfect for resting and recuperating afterwards. The island boasts an extensive range of health and wellness spas offering a broad range of traditional and alternative treatments and therapies which soothe, rejuvenate and inspire. Extensive facilities also exist for physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
