Cyprus named the Top Honeymoon Destination of 2010
The results of a new travel study finds that more British newlywed couples have chosen Cyprus as their honeymoon destination this year, which could lead to more bookings to the 'island of love', according to British online travekl website ulookubook.com.
A new travel industry survey of over 1,000 newlyweds has named Paphos on the island of Cyprus as the most popular destination for honeymooning couples this year.
The study, which also questioned the respondents about their wedding gifts and their idea of the perfect honeymoon, reveals that the couples questioned have turned away from the more traditional honeymoon destinations in favour of cheap holidays to Cyprus, and this result could lead to more bookings for holidays to the island, says ulookubook.com.
Ian Raine of online holiday firm ulookubook.com says: "The results of this survey are particularly interesting, as none of the couples questioned chose to go to Paris, and only 2 of the 1,078 couples questioned travelled to Venice for their honeymoon. Both of these destinations have long been a favourite destination for romantic getaways and these new figures reveal that we could just see more couples travel to Cyprus for their honeymoon next year."
While Cyprus has been a popular summer holiday destination with travellers for many years, travel insiders believe that these results are due to the optimum weather conditions and the abundance of activities available on the island.
Rain continues: "Cyprus is often credited for having the longest summer in Europe, which gives travellers the chance to experience great weather all year-round. It's also known as the 'island of love' because it is named as the home of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. So while Cyprus is ideal for honeymooning couples, it's also a great destination for any holidaymaker, regardless of their marital status, as short breaks and all inclusive holidays in Cyprus offer visitors countless activities, tours and luxuries to suit most tastes."
