Have you ever watched 'Fawlty Towers'? Remember the catchphrase ' Dont mention the war'?

You can expect a few fireworks pointing in your direction. Be prepared. :lol:

Welcome to the CF. A place of great fun, knowledge and 'misery' (for some) :wink:

Well you won't be far from Cape Greko. That's a lovely place for a day out.

Cape Grecko is a National Park, with well-signposted walks around it 'the Athena Trail'. And sea caves. It's about five miles from Ayia Napa. Take drinks and snacks with you - there is nothing commercial there and nowhere to buy them apart from a small food van before you enter. There is a splendid picnic area there with breathtaking views.

And if you are going to venture North again, Salamis Ruins are not very far and definitely worth a visit. Doesn't cost much to go in.

If you want to drive further Kyrenia Harbour, Bellapaise Abbey and Hilarion Castle are the 3 things on the other coast I would recommend.

I lived in Kyrenia for three years in the fifties. Been all around that part of Cyprus, but never to Cape Greko.
