Sports

Jungle Float Mobile Water Park, Protaras

Start off with the Monkey Jump, a simple 6 ft platform leap ... slip down the Curvy Water Jungle Slide ... step it up onto the Monkey Bounce a small trampoline then a little more extreme with the Gorilla Bounce, a 12 ft high trampoline into the Med ... The Tarzan Swing is my fav ... and if you wanna be brave, dive off the Gorilla Jump, a 14 ft high platform, that's high enough for a double somersault !!!

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 !

Bakers Arms Pub, Ayia Triada

Just off the roundabout at Ayia Triada, two mins walk from Trinity Beach, with gorgeous sweeping views to the sea, is this traditional British Pub that's a hive of activity day and night … Barbara and Simon, aka Simon the Pie Man come from the Green Isle and good old Irish hospitality came with them, in abundance !!!

Mike’s Water Sports, Konnos Bay

Situated on Konnos bay, which just has to be the most idyllic location in Cyprus at the bottom of a windy avenue skirted with pine trees, a beautiful secluded white sandy beach with crystal clear water, perfect to enjoy a days watersports ... oh and free WiFi mmm!

Snooker & Pool

It's not so easy to find snooker halls in Cyprus but there are a few ... however there's at least one pool table in...

Cyprus Diving Centre, Pernera

Rich's speciality is his ability to calm students who are a little nervous about the idea of being underwater.  He understands that some people worry 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, with the added reassurance that he'll be right next to you and even hold your hand when you take the plunge for the first time.  The comments from his first-time students speak for themselves !!!

Potamos Fish Restaurant, Liopetri

It's a picturesque setting, with the restaurant literally on the riverbank, overlooking the fishing shelter, on the estuary of the Liopetri River aka 'Potamos', with stunning views stretching all the way to Cape Greko.  Inside, traditional, comfortable seating, fresh fish fridges, old photos on walls, and outside on the terrace with decking, where their two fishing boats are docked, seating for around 150 diners, lined with umbrellas for a little shade, and with the sea just a few metres away. you couldn't find a more perfect setting to eat fish!  btw, Haris and Margaritas' grandfather Nicolas opened this delightful beachside location in Potamos 50 years ago, so all the local fishermen could enjoy their days' catch, and btw, they still do.

Sfinx Bar, Food & Style, Protaras

Boasting a full stage, so everyone can see ... with an awesome light n sound system !

Golf

Getting a round in ... There's four fantastic 18 hole courses on the island, and visitors are often surprised by the standard of the greens here...

Queen Vic Pub & Restaurant, Ayia Napa

This is an awesome pub with an excellent reputation and I highly recommend a visit, oh, mention What's On and you'll be in for a nice surprise !
