CyproNatura, Ayia Napa

Getting into the natural food thing isn't as hard as you think ! Replacing things like crisps and biscuits, with really fresh nuts and totally fresh, dried, and sugarless fruits is easy, tbh, knowing you're not putting rubbish inside you is a fulfilling emotion and actually I discovered ages ago the tastes are just awesome !

Eleni Bags, Accessories and More, Xylophagou

Cyprus Rocks Festival 2017, Protaras … 4th ’til 11th October

What started as a weekend gig, grew into a week long party and then two weeks of 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 Eddie's Classic Rock Tours over ten years ago ...

Ocean Aquarium Park, Protaras

George showed me around the grounds explaining; "You can learn so much about marine life here, and rivers and swamps and the Penguins, the first ever in the Mediterranean region, naturally kept comfortable in the appropriate climate controlled environment".  Just watching one of their videos I amazingly learned that all Gold Fish don't have stomachs, so they have to keep eating, which means you should feed them small amounts 5 times a day, probably why I was never successful keeping one, but now I know!

Tipsy Turtle, Your Friendly Local, Pernera

I loved this place the moment I saw the name, ... It's a British Style pub, from the outside all white and doors, really cool signage and some comfy seating to enjoy a drink in the late sunny afternoons and watch the world go by, hanging baskets and signs, inside, pristine, all wood and red brick, spacious with comfy seating, over to the right a separate games area, with pool table, and regular Killer Pool and darts board and they are just about to start a team and a Bar Football table ... both Pool and Darts have winter leagues, so go ask if you can join the team or maybe add one?

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 !!!
