And what better than an ice-cold beer outdoors, surrounded by trees and flowers? If you’re looking for a refreshing pint, a hearty lunch. or just a place to watch your favourite game, here’s the lowdown on some of the best beer gardens around Cyprus!

An oasis in the city, it boasts a wide selection of beers and good food (the chicken kebab alone is reason enough to go) Babylon is also well known for screening every major sport event in the large garden and with the World Cup coming up, you might want to make a reservation if you are planning to head here.
