Romantic; On an island; Near water
This apartment is located on the east coast of Cyprus, which has wonderful broad bays and harbors like Famagusta, Paphos, Larnaca and Limassol. It is a wonderful area for a holiday, not the least because the temperature in summer is between 25 and 30° C. The periods of March to early June and from September to October are the best months in terms of temperature. Perhaps outside the city limits of Paralimni it is not so pretty architecturally, but that is more than offset by the beautiful landscaped gardens which are a delight for the eye, especially when the trees are in blossom or bearing fruit. The current generation has however been building more and more attractive houses. In the heart of Paralimni there is a small but well equipped shopping center (including stores like Carrefour and Orfinades) and modern cafes and bars. Kokkinos also has local supermarkets. Paralimni is known for its picturesque windmills that still pump water. The nearby town of Protaras is predominantly a tourist resort. It has lovely sandy beaches (including the famous “Fig Tree Bay”) and deep blue waters. It is known as "the land of windmills". Just a few kilometers away lies Ayia Napa, which has in recent times grown into a resort of considerable size. It has all the facilities you would expect from a modern holiday resort. By comparison, Protereas is quieter and thus more suited to family holidays. Cape Greco (10 km from Protaras) is considered one of the most beautiful places on the island. Larnaca is the second largest port on the island and it has an international airport as well. Being one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, there are of course many historical sites. The harbor has a 400 meter long jetty where yachts are moored. Here you can also enjoy a stroll along the palm-lined promenade. There are regular festivals in Anthestiria in May, the Kataklysmos Festival during the first half of summer, Larnaca Summer Festival in July and the Village Festival in August. Kition is an Old Testament city. Its ruins are open to visitors and the museums tell about the architecture. On the coast there are opportunities for diving, snorkeling and other water sports including parasailing, wave running and kayaking. All this is possible in Cyprus, the island with a deep blue sea, a sandy shoreline and a sunny sky!
