Cyprus – My Original Impressions of CyprusBy
The very first time I discovered Cyprus, I immediately fell heavily in love with the region. It had been a summertime holiday additionally, the fantastic climate packaged with the warm, appealing waters of the Mediterranean were instantly enchanting. There’s a close relationship between Britain and the Greek part of Cyprus therefore it also felt far more like your own home than other places in the Mediterranean.
We turned up at Larnaca International Airport which is fairly well linked with several United Kingdom airports. The waiting airport taxi transported us east in the direction of our accommodation at the renowned resort of Ayia Napa. It has a warranted status for being a party resort, principally through the summer time but we’d reserved a 5* hotel around 2km from the centre at Nissi Beach.
We had a reservation at the Aeneas Hotel a wonderful 5* hotel nestled over the road from Nissi Beach. Our hotel was located is attractive gardens and the main pool may be the largest individual swimming pool I’ve ever seen in a hotel. We had a standard room that was nice and clean, modern and comfortable and a few of the superior rooms opened up straight up on the main swimming pool. All through the daytime, the pool, or rather a bit of it, was central of the terrific entertainments team who worked the whole day keeping holiday makers amused.
Breakfast time in the hotel was a spread of traditional British or continental breakfasts. We found a great range of food in addition to lots of fruit that is always a pleasant sight on vacation. During the night time, we usually dined away from the hotel because there is a huge choice of bars, coffee shops and restaurants within easy reach or possibly a short taxi trip away in the middle of Ayia Napa. There’s a lot of different places to eat round the Ayia Napa. One evening, we even tried crocodile meat. In Ayia Napa, I spent 2 or 3 days diving with a dive centre within the resort. The sea was welcoming but sadly, there isn’t anywhere near the same amount of marine life that I was used to in the Red Sea. We also paid a few visits to the nearby Waterworld Aqua Park and is a great day trip for children of all ages.
One more place to visit is close by at Protaras. The Sea Aquarium Park has in excess of 400 species of marine life on show and outdoors within the gardens, you will discover enclosed ponds with turtles and crocodiles. Having said that, this Cyprus holiday was generally a seaside break and we spent most of the time either over the road from Aeneas Hotel at Nissi Beach or around the giant hotel pool. We didn’t really take a look at the rest of Cyprus throughout our visit. That will need to hold off until we return the next time.
