Travel Special: Scintillating Cyprus

Even if we love London with all our hearts, we could all do with a little escapade, away from the grey skies and the city hubub.  Sunny, white-beach paradise, here we go: Cyprus awaits!

To make things even better, Cyprus is one of the destinations where you can purchase the ENTERTAINER app! So we’ve planned a delightful five-day stay, with plenty of Buy One Get One Free opportunities so you and your companion(s) can make the most out of it!

Ayia Napa, Protaras and Akamas

Ayia Napa owns its name to the monastery of the same name, but apart from the historical landmarks there is not much of the monastic in this part of town. Nowadays this resort offers all the best entertainment, and the sky-blue beaches of Protaras are a treat for all swimming and diving enthusiasts! Akamas, home to nearly 50 flora and fauna species, will welcome you with its wild beauty!

The ENTERTAINER suggests: visit Fig Tree Bay Watersports for all your diving and water-skiing needs!

The historic old Town of Nicosia

If you wandering streets of stone houses, cultural venues, bars, restaurants and museums are more your thing, head to Nicosia! Located near the center of the Mesaoria plain, on the banks of the River Pedieos, it’s bright and solemn beauty won’t leave you indifferent.

The ENTERTAINER suggests: Polychoros 77, where you will be able to enjoy the best Greek mezze platters, and have a well-deserved rest after all that strolling around!

Pafos Harbour

Enjoy a romantic walk around picturesque Pafos, the capital of Cyprus in the Greco-medieval era, and mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. It can also be your little escape away from the weather, in case Cyprus heats up too much, since the area enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, milder than the rest of the island. Pafos was also selected as the European culture capital of 2017, which should be reason enough for you to visit it!

The ENTERTAINER suggests: Ristorante Bacco at Elysium Hotel, where you can sample a marvelous marriage between Italian cuisine and Cypriot seasonal ingredients.

Limassol Marina

The Marina is a breath-taking location that is bursting with life. Restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping, cultural facilities, basically anything that can improve your leisure can be found there. It will be difficult to come back to London once you’ve experienced the “life at sea”.

The ENTERTAINER suggests: Bistrot 55, where award-winning chef George Damianou leads you on a journey of great flavours, along with a glass of good wine to complement every bite. A warm and friendly place that offers a new culinary challenge for lovers of fine dining.

Lovely Larnaka

From the legendary Finikoudes Beach, stopping at the local seafood restaurants, and finishing with a proper look at the imposing Castle, Larnaca is the right cherry to top your Cyprus holiday, and you can truly finish your escape with a flourish, enjoying some open-air theatre and other cultural amenities.

The ENTERTAINER suggests: Gevsis En Lefko, located by the sea, just a few meters from the Medieval Larnaka castle. Their goal is to serve the best Greek food in town, in a warm and friendly atmosphere, and we can assure you they have absolutely achieved this!

We hope these suggestions improve your Cypriot experience, make sure you take loads of selfies with white sand and refreshing drinks near, and always tag the ENTERTAINER! Bon voyage!
