Dear Insiders

Most of you will no doubt already be enjoying your summer holidays, while others may be sending off last minute emails and getting through ‘to do’ lists as we speak! Wherever you may be on the island, or wherever you may be heading for the mid-August break, we wish you all very happy holidays!

This week, there has been great amount of talk of baby turtles on the beaches of Akamas heading out to sea. While mass tourism in the Mediterranean and the use of beaches for recreational purposes deprives turtles of their nesting grounds, the west coast of the island provides these little creatures with bit of desperately needed solace away from the hustle and bustle of more built up areas. If you do head to this gorgeous part of the island over the holiday season, you can read all about what to expect here. But we urge all readers to take care not to disturb the peace of the little ones and to tread carefully and quietly in the area!



On a different note, if you’re reaching that point in the summer when you’ve grown a little tired of going to the same beaches over and over again, the My Cyprus Insider team is on hand with some great ideas for you. Whether you’re lazing on the west or east of the island, there’s something to suit all tastes. On that note…It’s almost time to get my beach bags packed and hit the road!


Happy holidays Insiders!

Bye for now, Zoe
