Ayia Napa

Driving from the crowds at Ayia Napa, we headed over to the undeveloped peninsula of Cape Greco. This is an area of spectacular rock formations, large sea caves and some superb views.

A short drive North took us to Protaros is well know for its sandy beach and clear water at Fig Tree Bay and time for us to take a cooling swim in the sea.

Heading West we stopped off at the village of Kalavassos, which is regarded as one of the oldest villages in Cyprus.

Close to Kalvassos is Choirokoitia, which is a Neolithic village that dates back to the 9th Millenium B.C. This World heritage site is still undergoing excavation and a replica of the Neolithic village has been constructed on site.

Our final stop was at the coastal village Zigi has several seafood restaurants and we enjoyed a fresh fish meze at Mario’s
