Don't just go to Cyprus and prop up the pool bar! Get out and enjoy the natural beauty that Cyprus has to offer. It's not all bars and karaoke bars there is real beauty and masses of history. Well worth a visit

What a lovely beach. Oct is the perfect time to visit Cyprus. We went for a week and it was absolutely great weather. It was a shame turtle season was over. We played in the beach more than half a day. But there are no toilets or changing places in the bay.

It's a long drive along an off road beach but all cars can make it. Unfortunately November is the wrong time of the year to see the turtles but the beach and views were worth the visit.

Interesting place with quite a lot info on turtles and local nature. Wonderful nature itself - including mountain views, sea views and lots of other views :-) Good beach with moderate waves to swim and play. Quite easy to get there by car, but still quite off-way, so not too much tourists there. I was very glad to stop there... More
