Where I’ve been – Cyprus Delights

It’s been quite some time since my last post so I thought share what I’d been up to. I went to Aiya Napa in Cyprus for an all girls holiday with my cousins for a week then spent the weekend in London.

I was in Ayia Napa between 6th to 13th May, we didn’t arrive until late on 6th May so all we did was have dinner at the hotel and go to bed. We stayed at the Nissi Park Hotel. It was lovely, we were all inclusive which was great too. One of the best things about the hotel is the staff they were so friendly and helpful, the hotel is a 3 star one but I would say if you’re planning to go Cyprus stay there it’s really nice. The hotel itself is clean and nicely laid out, i adore the colour scheme as I like neutral colours. In general the public transport is good, our hotel had bus stops quite near so we could jump on and go Larnaca, Nicosia or Pafos if we wished.

I booked throughThomas cook and had no problems at all. For the hotel website click here if you’re interested in checking it out.

We did so many activities out there that it was unreal, we only had 2 days at the beach the rest was cramming in activities. I attempted scuba diving for the first time. This was scary but so worth it, I cannot swim well but I went to a scuba place who were happy to let me scuba even though I was a novice swimmer, they catered to your needs. For the life of me I cannot remember the name but I will put a link in once I find out who the company where. We also went for a camel ride at the Camel park, that was fun too. We did also go on the Red bus village tour, if your going to Cyprus and are interested in knowing the history i’d recommend this tour, the tour guide Ian was so knowledgeable and friendly, we all really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. We watched the sun rise from Cape greco, and so much more. It really was a brilliant holiday. I even managed to make some time to read haha.

This is what I’ve been up to over the last week or so. If your planning a holiday and don’t know where to go then go Cyprus! It is amazing and the weather is great.

Have anyone else been to Cyprus before?
