This is one of those places that just gives you a warm family, home from home feeling in a relaxed ambience, the best pub grub and the more than occasional parrrrrty!
Do something you've neve done before ... Take a walk on the wild side ... Based at Trinity Beach in the Ayia Triada area of Protaras, this adventure sport is totally unique in Europe! It's an Undersea Adventure like no other, and trust me, it’s an 'under the sea' excursion you just have to experience !
They recently refurbished, gave the place a new name, moving into a new era ... Elements; Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water ... Panicos says "it was time to change", I agreed, he continued "but its going to be the home of the fifth element, 'Spirit' ... Always a warm and welcoming spirit, two bars to the right now, so plenty of room to get into the party spirit and boogie in the middle ... That's the spirit !
Just off the roundabout at Ayia Triada, two mins walk from Trinity Beach, with gorgeous sweeping views to the sea, is this traditional British Pub that's a hive of activity day and night … Barbara and Simon, aka Simon the Pie Man come from the Green Isle and good old Irish hospitality came with them, in abundance !!!
Situated in the middle of Protaras Bay, without argument, one of Cyprus' finest beaches ... it's a family business, run by two brothers Alexi and Kyri, btw, they've been on the beach since they were in nappies, or not as the case may be, things don't change lol
The setting is as good as on the beach, it's a traditional village house with alcoves and arches edging the shaded patio out front, overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean sea. The ambience is relaxed outside and continues inside, with comfy lounge style sofas and 4 huge TV screens to watch all the live sports, there's a pool room with plenty of seating and two lovely open fires to keep your toes warm in the winter.
It looks stunning from outside, recreated to look like the inside of a cave, with huge Dinosaur bones, arches and skeleton relics everywhere and I just love the Lizard stools ... all the crew are dressed up in character and of course Fred parked the Flintstones car outside, so don't forget to get a selfie or two ! Oh, there's big screens for all the live sports and a pool table and a cool beer garden with cool kid's play area out back.
Captain Andreas takes you along the coast for a 2 Hour 30 minute mini cruise, first as far as you can go to the UN line to see the Ghost City of Famagusta, where you'll learn about the history of what happened and why it's still empty after over 40 years, and it's told in 3 languages, English, Russian and French, brilliant !
When all you want to do is catch your team ... Here's where you can catch the games ...
If you're from bonny Scotland, its the only place to be, but this is a really awesome bar, and they'll welcome you whether your Scots or not, fact is just about everyone goes there! By the way if you see the Craig's Bar Mini Bus you can stop it for a free ride to the Bar !
