    Kyrenia Restaurants

    Bellapais Things to Do

    We paid a visit to the Bitter Lemons house while we were in Bellapais a couple of weeks ago & were lucky enough to be there on a day when the owners brother Mat was giving a talk & tour.

  • Singing Elephants

    Larnaka Nightlife

    Something attracted me into this bar. It was the music. Walking through Laika Geitona, just off the tourist track in Larnaka, I was drawn to a bar by the sound of plaintive song. A group of guys were singing along to some traditional 50 year old Cypriot ballads. Alone, I sat down outside and ordered wine. As the night went on there were more...

If they are not properly looked after, they will revert.Look closely at the tree and, amongst the bitter oranges, you'll see lemons as well.An orange-and-lemon...

    Bellapais Abbey Things to Do

    It's not, perhaps, as pretty now as it was when Lawrence Durrell lived there, but Bellapais still has some interesting and attractive areas (and superb views towards the coast and sea).There are small alleyways, and plants and flowers.....people living their ordinary lives.It's always worthwhile taking a bit of time to wander away from the main...
