Dear Insiders

Is anyone else feeling the need to hit the beach this weekend? I have to admit, I absolutely love the spring and just don’t want it to end, but with temperatures undeniably on the rise, it may be high time to enjoy some good old lazing by the water’s edge! In fact, May is probably the best time to actually relax by the coast, with many of the best sandy strips around the island still relatively quiet. I’m thinking about heading to the Protaras or Ayia Napa area this weekend, given that I tend to avoid the area when things get really busy come July or August. Konnos Bay is my absolute favourite places for moments of pure bliss, but if you’d like some more inspiration, we have plenty for you here.


Speaking of all things summery, there is nothing better than ending a day out at the beach than with a day out at the beach than with a delicious ice cream in hand! And we here at My Cyprus Insider are absolutely delighted that some fabulous artisan ice cream joints are popping up around the country. Whether you fancy Japanese Matcha flavour or a sweet treat made only with organic milk, you’re bound to find something to delight you. Just have a look at an article we’ve prepared dedicated to some top artisan delights!



On a rather different note, it’s worth keeping in mind that the Agros Rose Festival is coming up soon, with a whole host of activities to enjoy, whether you want to indulge in an earthy hands-on experience picking roses, wish to try some local produce, or fancy sitting back and watching traditional dance shows.



Have a fabulous weekend, however you choose to spend it!

Bye for now,
