Aeyialos Fish Restaurant & Beach Bar, Pernera, Protaras

Let's start by saying this is a fish lovers haven! ... the setting, is on the coast, with mature trees, casting shadows over pristine lawns, with scattered sun loungers and Hawaii style thatched umbrellas, sweeping down to the tiny sandy bay.  Here and there, little alcoves of places to hide, some with sofas and others with hammocks to chill to the max. Off the restaurant, terraces with wooden decking overlooking a tiny sandy bay and a panoramic view of the med, and btw, this fish restaurant was nominated for Time Out Fish Restaurants, and I think they deserve it !"

Easy Riders Rentals, Ayia Napa

This is the biggest selection of quads, buggies and scooters in town ... There's well over 300 vehicles to choose from, some brand new and the rest immaculately serviced ... and Andreas and the crew are awesome!

Sirena Bay Beach Bar & Restaurant, Pernera

An eatery of the highest esteem, I love the crazy paved terrace, shaded by tall mature trees, that twinkle delightfully as the sun sets, the crazy colourful tables and chairs, almost kindergarden'ish, little alcoves of comfy seating, hammocks set up high in the trees, whilst down a tier, skirting the rocks, a pathway leading to the almost private beach on the left, that'll have mellow music and waiter service and there's plenty of sunbeds, all with a view to die for, a sea of serenity at Sirena Bay ...

The Mermaid Cruise, Protaras

As we get closer to Blue Lagoon, it's everyone to the front of the boat coz it's time to spot the real live mermaids, normally we find them basking in the sun on the rocks at the gorgeous Blue Lagoon and guess what? if you shout out loud enough, they'll dive in and you'll have the chance to swim with them in the beautiful crystal clear, safe waters of the lagoon ...

Yellow Submarine, Ayia Napa

This is a wonderful mini boat trip that'll let you take in the wonders of the underwater world of the Med and the awesome caves along a stunning coastline, with Captain Yioryis, who is just soooo passionate about the sea !!!

Sunfish Divers, PADI 5 Star IDC Centre, Ayia Napa

... with some of the most popular dive sites on the island due to clear, calm, warm water without dangerous currents and high tides.  It has a variety of natural features such as caves, canyons and drop off's which are safely accessible even on the occasional rough day ... plus a couple of new wrecks environmentally sectioned off to encourage plants and marine life !

Lazy Day Cruise on Aphrodite II

The Lazy Day Cruise didn’t get its name by accident … it really is a lazy cruise in comparison to one or two other party boats that set sail from the same harbour, please don’t get me wrong, they are awesome trips too, but The Lazy Day Cruise is more designed for families who want to chill out on the med, much as the cruise caters for all ages and many who go on the party boats also book this trip towards the end of their holidays, they have to chill sometime

Notos Street Food & Crepa Land, Protaras

'Notos' next to Crepa Land ... Yiannis explained "We wanted the Franchise for Crêpa Land but we wanted to sell burgers too ... Crepa Land is a national franchise, making Crepes, Waffles, Pancakes, Sandwiches, Fresh Coffee and cakes or Ben Jerry's Ice creams ... and we wanted to sell Burgers so we added a section just to do that ... and we called it Notos Street Food, come join our Burger Club!

Il Cavaliere Italian Mediterranean Ristorante, Pernera

Situated in Pernera, on the main strip, just off the fork, excuse the pun, you’ll find one of the finest Italian restaurants this side of Italy! I've known Sotiris the owner, since he opened but he's been in the business for many more years and trust me, it doesn’t go unnoticed! Everything is finely tuned from his menu to his choice of staff, right down to the wine bottle holders, brilliant!

Cyprus Rocks Festival 2019, Protaras … 2nd ’til 9th October

What started as a weekend gig, grew into a week long party, a week long pure rock festival, live bands on a big stage, and often in intimate venues, where you get a chance to grab a drink and socialise with like minded mates you've not seen since the last festival, as well as the band members who hang around the venues, along with the thousands of rock fans that started to follow Cyprus Rocks Festival over ten years ago ...
