Tips for things to do in Cyprus end December

Postby KarenT » Wed Dec 07, 2005 3:25 pm

I'm visiting Cyprus & staying nr Coral Bay from 26th december for a week. Does anyone have any tips of activities a group of 5 sporty people can do? We'd like to swim in the ocean - is it safe/warm? And what/where canm we go on New Year's Eve? Any info greatly appreciated.

Hi Karen

It is really too cold to swim here at the New Year, although I have done it.
Some attractions are closed at this time of the year but you could: cycle, walk, horse ride, tour the Akamas/Troodos etc, there is a great Birdpark, the Mosiacs etc

Loads of Hotels and Tavernsas have New Year Evee events, buts most of the best will be fully booked. For sure you will find somewhere to have fun.

Here we have sea not ocean. How warm it is it depends on you. There many people that swim in winter here. (but way way less than summer of course!)

Its very good for blood circulation swimming in ice cold water. Have a look in Limassol early in the mornings. Last January, 6.30am when it was still dark, I used to see several locals going out for a swim at that time of the morning.

New Year in Coral Bay

Postby Liakada » Mon Dec 12, 2005 10:31 pm

Go for a swim on New Years Day!!!

Yes it will be cold - but warmer than the North Sea off Skegness in August!!!

The Troodos Mountains are not far - 2 hrs drive.

I'm not sure exactly when the snow falls or the short skiing season starts but if adventure and activity you are after then the Snow Covered Mountains on a Winter Sun Break must be just the ticket.

There are Dive Schools in the Paphos area, horse riding, golf courses.

You may wish to visit the numerous cultural exhibits & locations in the area.

For further information on the above, please visit www.liakada.co.uk

Have agreat holiday and Happy New Year
