Kids & Grown Ups, Nicosia

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!

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 !!!

Footloose Karaoke and Sports Bar, Ayia Napa

It's on the entrance to Bar street, and it's one of the oldest bars in Napa. Andreas and Karina, who are completely 'down to earth' absolutely love their pub and have continued it's 30 year tradition by being one of the few bars that stay open all year and naturally it's a favourite with locals and long stay workers and of course they look after anyone that wants to join them , it's sort of one big happy family !

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 ...

Can you be Trusted not to be Trusted?

As we cruised out of the harbour, crewmen Salazar and Eddie England took lookout upfront, balanced precariously, holding the ropes to steady themselves as Anne Bonny welcomed us to the Black Pearl and introduced us to the slightly sloshed Captain Jack Sparrow and a few of the crew and told us a bit about the trip ...

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 !!!
