Hollywood actor and martial artist Jackie Chan was photographed on vacation in Cyprus on Monday. Chan was spotted by a group of fans as he boarded a boat on the idyllic beach of Latsi near Paphos on the island of Cyprus.
Latsi is known as one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, and in the entire Mediterranean. Even though Cyprus has long been an extremely popular destination for tourists from around the world, there are still many undiscovered spots on the island.
The stunning beach, which features sparkling turquoise waters, was even rated one of the best “secret beaches” in Europe, because it has not yet been discovered by tourists.
So it’s no surprise that the world-famous actor decided to soak up the sun and take a swim at the pristine beach, which is far from the world of Hollywood.
Cyprus is one of the top vacation destinations in Europe, as it is home to incredible beaches with crystal clear waters, magnificent ancient sites from the country’s long history, and countless opportunities for fine dining and luxury accommodation.
