In celebration of its 5-year anniversary, My Cyprus Insider is delighted to announce that it has partnered up with the island’s oldest English language newspaper, the Cyprus Mail (celebrating its 75th anniversary) to bring readers a one-off magazine, circulating for free in the Sunday Mail on July 12th, available at kiosks islandwide.
Whether you are a local planning your summer holidays, or have just arrived on the island for your idyllic Mediterranean break, we are here to show you how to make the most time off with heaps of ideas packed into this novel publication featuring some of the most popular articles ever published on My Cyprus Insider.
Mycyprusinsider.com was first launched in 2015 by Action Global Communications in Cyprus as an alternative CSR project, aiming to make a positive impact on society and small local businesses at a time when the country was going through tough economic times. It has since grown from strength to strength, attracting a growing worldwide following and receiving accolades which place it at the top of its league, including a Cyprus Tourism Award in 2019.
Over the past five years, we are delighted to have given thousands of readers across the globe a real insider glimpse of the island, inviting them to unlock the country’s hidden splendours. Beyond seaside attractions and typical well-known coastal hotels, My Cyprus Insider has brought to light remote villages, hidden accommodation, quirky sites, unique cultural and historic wonders, unusual venues, and alternative events – complemented by stunning photography – to generate worldwide awareness about what Cyprus has to offer.
Early this year, the coronavirus pandemic brought about the unimaginable as airports closed and hotels shut their doors. It has been a massive blow to our little island that depends so heavily on tourism, but we’re lucky enough to have contained the virus to a large extent, making Cyprus stand out as one of the safest countries to enjoy a gorgeous summer break by glistening seas.
Now, more than ever, is the time that we should all be supporting the efforts of local producers and small to medium-sized businesses, as well as all those in the local hospitality and tourism industry who truly need our support. As such, the special publication available this weekend in the Sunday Mail is a celebration of all things quintessentially Cypriot – our rich historic heritage to take in, our fabulous local produce to devoir, traditional villages to visit and so much more. Enjoy!
