Well done to Stephanos Water Sports, Protaras

Situated in the middle of Protaras Bay, without argument, one of Cyprus' finest beaches ... it's a family business, run by two brothers Alexi and Kyri, btw, they've been on the beach since they were in nappies, or not as the case may be, things don't change lol

Knights Pub & Restaurant, Pernera

Bursting at the seams with talent, one of my best friends 'Xenis', without doubt one of Cyprus' finest chefs, who passionately conjures up his Cordon Bleu pub grub, using only the freshest and finest ingredients from local suppliers and some grown in Xenis' personal allotments ... and btw Xenis likes to stay one step ahead of the competition ;)

Poseidonion Athletic Centre, Paralimni

I strongly believe that if at first you teach your child balance, body strength, flexibility, courage, and of course eye, hand and feet coordination, then team work, they can go on to do any sport they want to, be it in a team or individual.  The end of year Gymnastics shows are awesome btw!

Kota Greek Souvlaki, Ayia Napa

Chris, who has over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry said he wanted to open a place that offers low cost, tasty, good quality food, Greek style ... please note; Greek not Cypriot, cos this is authentic Greek leaning towards Cypriot and even the Pittas are imported from Greece ! Chris told me , ''They use only the freshest ingredients, cooking to order, which gives their dishes that extra bit of quality'' ! oh, and I love the cool variation of fresh herbs in each table !

Cyprus Diving Centre, Pernera

Rich's speciality is his ability to calm students who are a little nervous about the idea of being under water.  He understands that some people panic a bit about putting on a mask and breathing underwater for the first time and Rich has this amazing knack to calm you down and talk you through it, in fact if needs must, he'll be right next to you and even hold your hand when you make the plunge for the first time.  The comments from his first time students speak for themselves !!!

Arts & Crafts by the Lake, Restolake, Oroklini

This really is a lovely initiative by local, ex pat and international artists and crafters from all over the world and a lovely way to spend a family day out doing a little shopping and bartering and I really hope you'll go along to give them some support !

Dolphin Semi Submarine, Protaras

... Continuing the cruise towards Lover's Bridge, pulling in so close to Sharks Mouth Cave and The Pirates Caves, you have to push them off the rocks ... and then on towards the sea caves where you'll have a chance to jump in and explore the caves or just have a refreshing dip in the beautiful Blue Lagoon during the 45 minute swim stop ... oh, mind you don't lose your Captain to the Aphrodite I Cruises here ;)

Speedy Gonzales Mexican Bar & Restaurant, Pernera

... let me explain, here the Mexican food isn't hot, it's refreshing, in fact, you can request your selection to your taste, so everyone is happy.  The chef is of course Mexican with over 12 years experience, his specialities are the Burritos, Chimichanga, and an array of Fajitas ... but the menu is huge so you'll find it hard to choose, all served by the drop dead gorgeous scandi crew ... who'll serenade you on your birthday using the kitchen utensils as instruments ... it's just brilliant !

Super Action Sports and Toys, Paralimni

... its a must stop shop if you're looking for a present for anyone, of any age !!!

Blue Spice Restaurant Art Gallery, Pernera

It's a family run restaurant, at the helm Frixos is an awesome host gifting traditional Cypriot hospitality like no other ... Partner and Head Chef 'Savvas' says he likes a happy kitchen, that way you'll get food served with passion ... always looking for new recipes, this Chef trained in Germany for ten years, 2 in France, 2 in Italy, so he is truly international in experience and compliments that with ten international chefs ... including a Silver Needle Sous Chef from Thessaloniki, Greece ...
