It’s April & It’s Easter 2023
Talking about beaches, you know Ayia Napa and Protaras boast 2 of the best beaches in Europe and I believe we have the nicest sea I’ve ever had the pleasure to swim in, licensing hours currently ‘til 2.30 am, and then, of course, our night clubs will take you through to sunrise, not too good for the tan unless you go straight to the beach.
We'll finish off the month with Orthodox Easter Good Friday falling on the 22nd, Easter Sunday on 24th and Easter Monday on 25th, followed by an extra bank holiday on the Tuesday 26th aka Megali Triti or Big Tuesday because Easter is the biggest celebration on the Orthodox calendar and I'm expecting the locals to celebrate bigger and better than the last two years, so if you've never experienced Easter in Cyprus put it on your tick list ...
By the time all the Welsh and their very able assistants have recovered from those parties we’ll be into our annual carnival season, starting on Friday 4th March, much as we’re not allowed to have carnival parades again this year, we are allowed to drink at the bars and maybe dance on them too, so many bars, restaurants and clubs will celebrate by throwing a carnival party or two anyway ... so stay tuned here.
Another reason I love May is because we’ve already started topping up the tan as the temperatures have hit over 30°C in the shade, and the days are longer now, almost guaranteed sunshine through clear blue skies, as you'll notice there’s no heat haze yet. I’ve also started going out at night in shorts and T-shirt and by mid-May, we probably won’t see rain again ’til October, apart from maybe one crazy hail storm in August.
It’s spring, but there’s still so much to do if you look around, tbh, Cyprus is so versatile, you’ll probably still be able to ski and snowboard and even go Husky Sledding up in the Troodos Mountains 'til mid-March. Imagine being able to go snowboarding in the morning and wakeboarding on the med in the afternoon.
