A destination full of possibilities
Although Cyprus golf isn’t as well-known as some of its other European cousins, it shouldn’t be overlooked by golfers who value a tremendous golfing climate combined with great views and most importantly, incredible courses.

A Golfbreaks customer favourite is the Secret Valley Golf Club. Opened in 1996, this inland course is surrounded by nature and has recently been improved, meaning it is now at the absolute peak of its power as one of the best courses on the island.
