It’s June, and I’m loving it, summer is well and truly here with temperatures expected to hit 35° plus, the days are still getting longer with sunrise about 5.30 am and it’s still not dark by 8.30 pm, the sea is now officially warm enough for the locals to get in and the quilt came off a week ago so we’re sleeping under a sheet for the next few months, oh and as we come to the end of strawberry season, in comes the pipless watermelons, with a slice of fresh Halloumi for breakfast, hmm, we’re so spoilt in paradise! oh, and btw, make sure you drink more water!
The 100 Day Club War, starts around mid-June and by then all our clubs will be open and Ayia Napa, and once the Club Capital of Europe, I think it’s still hard to beat, with 8 top clubs giving you a broad mix of genres. Club Ice as always have lots planned with Foam Parties and UV Paint Parties and top DJ’s flying in from everywhere, Castle Club by now in full swing with 5 Rooms, giving you a choice of party sounds and classic house to hard house and R’n’B as much as you like, and an al’fresco VIP lounge under the stars, with the retractable roof right back … while Black ‘n’ White, way into their 35th year, got some massive names coming and still the place to be if you like it Urban and of course Carwash, if you like it cheesy, trust me you’ll leave singing!
Of course, all the Beach Parties and Pool Parties are in full swing, with Pambos Napa Rocks Pool Party still leading the way and Kandi Fest launching on Friday 7th June at Maccronissos … while up in Limassol, Club Eleven offers the techno freaks a little something special and Sunset Tribes goes mad on Governors Beach next month … Naturally, Guaba, one of Europe’s top clubs is on the beach and smashing it every weekend!
Chatting with my good friend Mani Liqweed the other day who let me into a few secrets about this years BCL Music Festival that kicks off on the 15th with the awesome James Hype on Poseidon Beach, out near Ayia Thekla and 10 Massive events lined up with BCL & Full Moon Parties switching days …
Take it or leave it!
The wonderful Karen Kendall and Kendall Events are bringing the massive tribute to Take That 4 gigs on a mini-tour from 6th to 11th … and Savino Live in Larnaca rocking it every weekend and Bank Holidays too … a few more like O’Neill’s Irish Bar & Grill in Paphos, Karsouros Rock Bar in Protaras, Tepee Rock Bar in Limassol all sticking to their guns with regular live music, rock or not! and OMG its only 3 months to Cyprus Rocks 2019.
Wed in the Med
So the wedding season is upon us, and we’re still the No: 1 place in Europe to get married, and why not? coz, it’s probably not going to rain ’til October, and everyone in the wedding photos will be wearing sunglasses, oh and we’ll have lots of Stag Nights and Hen parties and as we’re officially the Mythological Party Playground of the Mediterranean, anything could happen … Check out Kat’s for unusual wedding gifts, Snazz that Glass, an awesome idea and our Florists, Maria up in Paphos, Arocaria in Napa and Antonis in Paralimni … and if you need a really cool hair stylist, we have a few of them too …
Out & About
June is a great month to get out of town and go for an adventure, coz it’s good to see the real Cyprus. I highly recommend places like The Camel Park, Pafos Zoo, Ocean Aquarium, maybe an open-air market, a secluded beach, the Troodos mountains with Trackers Excursions, or back to nature with Jimmy’s Jeep Adventures in Paphos, or the Traditional Cyprus Bus in Paralimni and the awesome George’s Fun Bus in Paphos.
After Paphos’ up on the West coast boasted the Cultural City of Europe a couple of years ago it just seems to be rolling on and spreading throughout Cyprus with almost daily events, for more check out the CTO Events calendar …
Even More …
So the new App launched on Android 25th January 2018, and it’s looking absolutely awesome, even if I say so myself! I believe it’s the only dynamic App on Cyprus, driven by a wicked web site with over 1,500 pages and over 50,000 photos and videos, so please download it on Play Store and give us a 5 Star Review 😉 We are currently working on it to get it on iOS so be patient if it isn’t working perfectly … oh, and don’t forget to follow us on our facebook page, unless of course, you prefer, Instagram, Twitter, or Pinterest … and last but not least please subscribe to our YouTube channel … See links below …
And as forty-six percent of our economy is based on tourism, and the repercussions go all the way down to the paper merchant, I have a strange feeling it’s going to be a record-breaking year, btw, you heard it here first !!
If it’s your first time here, all I can ask is, why? … If you’ve been here before, welcome back, and we all know that you’ll keep coming back time and time again, and eventually you’ll probably end up moving here!, anyway, you are all very welcome, and really finally, step up the UV factor, drink loads of water and make sure you do something you’ve never done before!
