Can you drink the tap water in Cyprus?
The US Center for Disease Control's travel advisory recommends avoiding tap water and drinking bottled or disinfected water in Cyprus (source). Like all countries though, water accessibility, sanitation, and treatment vary widely from location to location, so we encourage looking for specific city information.
What do people in Cyprus think about the tap water?
Tap water is perfectly safe to drink in the South, although most locals drink bottled water, as it is very hard. However, the glass of water you automatically receive with your Cypriot coffee will undoubtedly be tap water. It is advisable to drink bottled water in the North.
Always take extra precautions, the water may be safe to drink when it leaves the sewage treatment plant but it may pick up pollutants during its way to your tap. We advise that you ask locals or hotel staff about the water quality. Also, note that different cities have different water mineral contents.
