Keeping in line with this year’s World Tourism Day which is celebrated on September 27, Cyprus Tourism Organization (CTO) puts sustainable development as its priority goal for the upcoming years.

Continuing its efforts to maintain and further improve the already remarkable record of its tourism sector, the organisation will focus on the development of green beaches while also integrating local products at hotels and restaurants across the island promoting the authentic and traditional character of Cypriot gastronomy.

The above actions, alongside the implementation of other sustainable practices, led to the recognition of Cyprus in 2015, with the silver award in the category Best Destination for Responsible Tourism, awarded by the international organisation Responsible Travel.
