The Cyprus Tourism Organisation has announced that tourist arrivals for the first six months of 2018 have outnumbered the total number arrivals ever recorded for a January - June period.

Cyprus’ global tourist arrivals from January to June reached 1,645,149 - a 12.4% increase on the same period in 2017 - and of these, there were 560,840 UK arrivals representing a 9.7% increase.

These strong figures have been attributed, in part, due to the tourism organisation’s promotion of its winter sun offering with February and March global visitor figures up 23.4% and 36.4% respectively. Moreover, June saw the highest volume of tourists ever recorded in Cyprus for that specific month.

Christos Moustras, marketing director for the tourism organisation, said: “We’re delighted to see Cyprus continuing to perform well through the winter and are proud of achieving a record breaking January to June period.”
