Things to do in Nicosia, Cyprus

There are so many things to do in Nicosia that the city begs a visit. Known mostly for its sunny climes, gorgeous beaches, friendly folk and delicious food, the majority of tourists forgo a trip here – collecting their bags and heading directly to the beach.

When […]

A Bit of Cyprus: Cyprus Beaches

These are in no particular order, but I do have a soft spot for Latchi.

I have been with the Cypriot for many years now and had never been any Cyprus beaches for vacation. It sounds as absurd as it is. We go there for weddings, christenings, every family event, but never for just relaxing. We have been a few nights here and there, but finally we made it to Aphrodite’s birth place with one goal in mind: to see a Cyprus beach.  As summer approaches and plans are made, Cyprus is definitely a destination to be reckoned with and the Cyprus beach is divine!
Aphrodite found one of the prettiest spots in Cyprus to do her ablutions, a hidden cove in the northwest corner of […]
