Originally a sanctuary for bird life, the park is now home to hundreds of animals including flamingos, Parrots, owls, cockatoos, llamas, kangaroos, giant tortoise and many more. This is a great day out for the family if you’re in the Paphos area with ticket prices starting from £13 per adult and £7 per child. It’s not going to break the bank.
Another great family attraction is the WaterWorld Waterpark in Aiya Napa. This is Europe’s largest themed waterpark and is the perfect fix for those adrenaline junkies or ideal chill out area for parents as they can relax in the ancient Egypt section.
Fig Tree Bay
According to Trip Advisor Fig Tree Bay is the number one thing to do in Protaras. This stunning beach with breathtaking ocean views to match has it all. Surrounded by great restaurants and bars you can even stop for a drink or bite to eat when you want to escape the blazing sun. And the best part about it is it costs nothing to visit.
Black Pearl Cruise
Ahoy! Mega Day Black Pearl Cruise awaits. It’s your time to shine in Cyprus like Jack Sparrow did in the Caribbean. You’ll sail to sea caves for a photo opportunity, swim at Konnos, stop for lunch, and finally sail to Protaras for one last swim before heading back to Aiya Napa harbour.
Golf in the Sensatori
Cyprus is known as a golfer’s paradise with plenty of golfing opportunities across the island. How does an 18-hole golf course at the Sensatori Aphrodite Hills sound? The complex has over 6000 metres of velvety golf greens with championship credentials, and prices start from £77.
One for the ladies, yes it’s time to shop! Head to Nicosia for boutiques, cafés and restaurants. Nicosia is just 1 hour from Aiya Napa and 1 hour 40 minutes from Paphos, so it shouldn’t cost a lot to get to.
This is one for the culture vultures, people who like explore the country by foot, for instance, hiking along Cyprus’ many coastal areas while stopping for the odd wine or coffee at the Troodos Mountains National Forest Park. As the largest mountain range in Cyprus, this is a must-see while staying on the island. The Troodos region has ten monuments which are all included in the World Heritage list and range from small churches to monasteries such as St John Lampadistis.
This trip is not for the faint hearted. Cliff jumping at Cape Greco is a must-do for all adrenaline junkies. Grab your GoPro and, well, watch this video…
