Posted February 23, 2011 by BookingBuddy

Cyprusbeach Ayia Napa has been a paradise for partygoers for years, so if you haven’t been there yet, it might be time to consider a trip soon! The clubs are far from the only attraction here – Ayia Napa’s incredible beaches, with their fine white sand and clear blue waters have drawn many visitors over the years. Relax on Nissi Beach and top up your tan with the beautiful people, or head to Cape Greco for a possible sighting of the mythical Ayia Napa Sea Monster.

 

See

Ayia Napa Monastery – Visit this historic monastery for a tranquil respite from hung over clubbers and sunburnt beach bodies. Ayia Napa Monastery sits in the centre of town, on the site of an illuminated icon discovered by a hunter. The sycamore tree by the gate is thought to be over 600 years old, and the cool fountain in the courtyard was built nearly 500 years ago.

 

Stay

The rooms are decorated in neutral, luxurious furnishings, and look out over the sea. The facilities include both an outdoor pool and a heated indoor pool, as well as a gym, tennis court and spa. Room rates start from £60.

 

Eat

Clarabel Restaurant – This family-run restaurant offers an array of Mediterranean and Cypriot dishes on its menu. Enjoy a variety of mezes, or enjoy the flambé dishes, cooked on a portable flambé trolley right in front of your table!

Breaks In Cyprus

Posted February 22, 2011 by BookingBuddy

Cypruschurch If Ayia Napa is the only thing that comes to mind when you think of Cyprus, then it may be time for another visit to this sunny Mediterranean island! History buffs will have a great time exploring archaeological sites or simply wandering through the historic streets of Nicosia. The Troodos Mountains covers a significant portion of the island, is home to some of the oldest trees on earth! It is also a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders.

 

Stay

Bellapais Gardens – Set in a romantic landscape of fertile gardens and meandering paths, the Bellapais Gardens in Kyrenia is the ideal destination for a relaxing getaway. With only 17 self-contained cottages, you’ll be sure to enjoy some tranquillity while staying here. Most of the cottages come with a terrace when you can enjoy views that stretch all the way to the sea. Bellapais Abbey is only a minute away from the hotel, and can be seen while you have a relaxing swim in the spring water pool. Room rates start from around £50.

 

See

Nicosia – A tale of two cities unfolds daily in Nicosia – it is the capital city of both Cyprus and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, with the Green Line dividing Nicosia in half. On the Cypriot side, the picturesque Old City is popular with visitors. The narrow streets are filled with the scent of jasmine and lined with a multitude of shops. The historic Famagusta Gate houses a cultural centre, and the Ledra Observatory Museum gives visitors a bird’s eye view of Nicosia.

 

Eat

Antonaros Tavern – This unassuming little restaurant in Limasol has only mezedes on its menu, so you’ll be able to sample a wide array of local dishes at once. There are plenty of familiar items, such as dolmades (stuffed vine leaves), halloumi and soulaki. You’ll also find some seafood dishes here, and freshly grilled fish.
