    DIPOTAMOS DONKEY FARM

    by greekcypriot Updated Apr 14, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A DAY EXCURSION
    I highly recommend this excursion especially if there are children in the family.
    Of course it is not an excursion only for children because adults can surely have fun out here too.

    You will see donkeys, have a ride along the shadowy olive and orange alleys, pick fresh fruit from the nearby plantation.
    Hire a bicycle and explore the flora and fauna with your children.
    After the excursion the donkey farm gives you the opportunity to dine at its premises if you feel like it. The programme is great.
    You can enjoy dinner out with Traditional Greek dancing, and Cypriot-like entertainment.
    (I suggest that you call before you go).

    Entrance fee is 5 euros. Dinner costs 10 euros. However a cmplete package that includes transfer, donkey riding, a guide, and dinner with unlimited wine plus a tour in the park costs a bit more and it comes to 65 euro but you will surely have an unforgettable day!
    You can call and arrange what exactly you want. Tel: 357 99620736

    Drive up to Skarinou

    by greekcypriot Written Mar 26, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    THE VILLAGE OF SKARINOU IN THE LARNACA DISTRICT
    SKARINOU which dates back to the Medieval times is considered to have a privileged position on a hill with a panoramic view only 15 minutes from Larnaca. Its lush vegetation is mainly of olive and carob trees that surround the village.

    A few minutes from Larnaca and you come to this village. Take a walk and visit the Agro Tourist complex - very old houses that keep their old style and ask to see them. You will probably love to spend a day or two here.

    The people of the village are more friendly and you can have a walk in the village. It is not very big but it is interesting for sure.

    The village itself is very near many popular attractions like the Monastery of Stavrovouni, the Camel Park, and the Neolithic Settlement of Choirokitia dated back to 6.800 B.C.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very near the village of Lefkara, the 15th century convent of Agios Minas consists of a church cloisters and other monastic buildings.

    I have visited it recently on my visit to the beautiful village of Kato Drys.
    The 18th century monastic buildings surround the church with cloisters to the west.

    The church is the common mix of Byzantine and Gothic styles, with a pointed vault wth traverse ribs and side porticos.

    FAROS Beach - Pervolia

    by greekcypriot Updated Oct 16, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The village of Pervolia is just 16 km from Larnaca, close to the airport and it is experiencing significant tourist development mainly because of its sandy beaches, with that of the Faros beach the most significant.

    Tourists love this place and this is the reason of the many beautiful villas in the round area.
    The sand here is dark, contrary to the beaches of Ayia Napa and Protaras.

    The village is also quite popular because of the beautiful hotel which is popular to tourists as it is very close to the Larnaca Airport.

    Faros in Greek means ‘Lighthouse’ and the beach was given the name Faros, after this lighthouse that stands out there and was built in the years of British rule.

    There is another beach on the other side of the coast but it is more vulnerable to winds so when it gets windy, this beach becomes the highlight of the area.

    The First Settlements of Humanity!-Kalavasos

    by greekcypriot Written Nov 9, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Choirokoitia, Kalavasos-Tenta provides evidence of initial establishment at the end of the 7th millennium B.C. of sedentary communities on the island, who originated from the neighboring mainland. They developed an original civilization: the Cypriot Aceramic Neolithic.

    The settlement is surrounded by walls and consists of buildings with simple circular or double circular ground plans built with sun-dried mud brick or stone or a combination of both. To see the hand paints found here, don’t miss visiting the Nicosia Museum!

    It is considered a ‘must visit’ if you come to the island.
