Thanks to everyone for the suggestions so far - we are going to have an absolute blast! Already 6 years in Cyprus and never knew there was so much fun to be had.
Any suggestions for great restaurants?
Thanks again!

Hi there,

If you are all reasonably fit and active people perhaps a gentle paddle by kayak (canoe) to see the Sea Caves near Ayios Georgios might be something memorable. Best achieved in the mornings providing the winds and sea are kind, and if its October, its more likely to be possible early in the month.

Allow a half day for relaxed paddling and then combine with a road trip to Lara Bay or similar

Have fun!

Hi Clueless,

My suggestion follows on from Bilberry's. A quad bike ride into Akamas is wonderful you could also try hiring a boat from Polis and sailing around to Akamas.

You can hire for 1/2 or a full day and for a group of four or more it is not expensive. You are given tuition before you're let loose on your own with the boat, powerful outboard motor, covered deck etc. Once underway you are free to go where you like and not tied to a guide saying it's time to move on. Take your own food and drink you'll be able to travel completely independently around the coast all day. We did this last year with four of our friends who were visiting it was fantastic.

If you're intent on avoiding Ayia Napa, then travel a little further to Protaras and Fig Tree bay. The beaches on that side of the island are really beautiful! You could also stop at the Greco Caves .... a wonderful outdoor outing
If you're going near Troodos and have time to travel down the Marathassa Valley .... do stop at kalopanayiotis, a really beautiful village boasting a monastry and lovely river walk ... and a spa! Actually, that might be a great place to celebrate a wedding anniversary!

A visit to Mount Olypmus together with Kikos Monastry and the Paltres is something I find my visitors enjoy.

The one place to avoid is Ayia Napa!

Why not the discovery of Akamas peninsula in quad bike. Fantastic, unforgettable! With a nice guide (shop on the main road between Polis and Latchi)

love Cyprus
