The first and most commonly asked question when you tell someone you're heading to Cyprus is, "where is that...?" And if not, its usually, "Isn't that a Greek island?" Although Cypriots speak a version of Greek and many parts of their culture and lifestyle comes from Greece, Cyprus is its own country centrally located off the coast of Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. It's absolutely beautiful, and has a large variety to offer especially for an island. From crystal clear beaches, to waterfalls, mountains, to wineries, and a handful of historical sites, this island has enough "touristic" adventure to keep you busy for at least a year!
November is quickly coming to a close and it wasn't until just last week (about the second to last week of November) that I last had a bikini on near the seaside. Summer felt like it was never-ending and I was loving every ounce of sun I managed to soak up! I am still sitting out on my balcony catching some morning sun but its a bit chillier than your typical summer weather.
Here is a glimpse into the perfect HOT SPOTS for Summertime in Cyprus!
