Cyprus has highest number of tourist arrivals ever in August
Mediterranean holiday island Cyprus recorded its best ever August when arrivals jumped nearly 17 per cent to reach more than 458,000 visitors during the peak season, official data showed Monday.
“August 2016 had the highest volume of tourist arrivals ever recorded in Cyprus during the specific month,” the finance ministry said.
In a clear indication that the economy is on an upward curve, August marked a 16.9-per cent hike in tourist arrivals compared to the same month in 2015.
Only July saw more tourists for a single month with a record 482,000 arrivals.
No one is talking about it but Cyprus is doing really well since they had their crisis a couple of years ago. This continued good news should also end up benefiting Bank of Cyprus which remains cheap.
