... so if you're starting your summer tan, there's no better place to be in Europe, coz as usual we've got the best weather, blended with finest beaches. Ayia Napa and Protaras Beaches being voted 1st and 3rd respectively by Trip Advisor and with and the nicest sea I've ever had the pleasure to swim in, licensing hours that are as good as all day, not too good for the tan, one of the world's top club scenes, and that amazing home from home feeling, mmm !
... They all get face painted, and fly kites and stuff, and btw don’t worry if you’ve not been invited, just go for a walk in any field on Monday 11th and you’ll probably get asked to join in, you know Cypriot hospitality n’all …
... oh and don’t worry, there’s so much to do if you look around, Cyprus is versatility to the extreme, so you’ll still be able to ski and snowboard up in the Troodos Mountains in the morning and swim in the Med in the afternoon and the spring air is really clear, so in between the occasional wintry storms, you’ll still get a fab tan!
Happy New Year !!! It's January, and as we’ve always said; Cyprus is versatility to the extreme, you just have to love this place coz in January you can ski in the Troodos mountains in the morning and just over an hour later you can be swimming in the med … Maybe the other way around, then you can get into some Après Ski in and chill out in a log cabin in the mountains, total tranquility comes to mind, and do it the other way around tomorrow!
Oh and if you thought it was quiet in December let’s not forget, it's time for work's parties, warm up for Christmas Parties, Christmas parties, New Year parties and Fancy Dress parties and lots of Christmas markets, festivals, live gigs and naturally we'll all be getting together with family and friends, to eat too much, drink too much, and with a bit of luck enjoy a little sex on the beach ? ... calm down, it's just a cock tale ;)
It’s the season for festivals and exhibitions and summer closing parties and winter opening parties and anyone that says Cyprus is dead should look again … sure it’s quieter than the summer, and many places closed a tad early, doubling up their Halloween Party with their closing party, any excuse to get rid of all the booze in stock, lol
There's festivals everywhere and closing parties and opening parties all over the place and we'll see a few more pubs, bars, cafes and clubs staying open, with many swinging towards the local market. So if you get invited to any end of season or opening parties make sure you go ... it’ll be rude not to ;)
So, another big plus is there's a distinct lack of 5 to 16 year old's on the beach, making room for the older crew, the party weathered lot, who really know how to party! All the mature boobs are out on the beach, and why not? The restaurants are in their element, as the Island of Love captures all those romantic couples, who'll eventually end up getting married here, making us the number one place to get Wed in the Europe!!!
So, as sophisticated, trendy, cosmopolitan, Nicosia spills down to the coast, and mixes with pure party, the result inevitably is electric!, oh and did I mention it's summer, it's hot, and I mean really hot, and if you only get one tip from me this month, make it 'Drink more water' !
... of course it's peak season, it’s hot, even the cold water isn't cold enough, the temperature will reach over 40°C by mid-July, sunrise about 5.30 am and it’s not getting dark 'til almost 8.30 pm, there's beach parties and pool parties all over the place, and the 60 day club war is well and truly underway, with some massive names coming to spin their mix.
