Tsiknopempti Day Drive

Published 14th of March, 2019

A couple of weeks ago Cyprus celebrated Tskinopempti. Like a lot of Cypriot festivities, this involved social eating. We instead opted to go for a drive, as the sun was making an appearance and we wanted to see the sea...

Out first stop was Pikni Forest. You can have a nice walk in those woods, and there are some stunning views.


Now, you may be wondering why this blog is a few weeks late, and why we didn't cover the carnival or Green Monday. Well there is a good, albeit, sad reason for that. My Mum died unexpectedly and we went back to England for a time, to comfort Dad and be with the rest of the family.


Everybody is still very raw, but life goes on. I will be doing a special blog soon, as Mum and Dad were due to visit this Spring. In it I will go to lots of places and give her a virtual tour of Paphos in Spring. I know she always wanted to see the flowers and greenery.

Food For Thought


When you make the decision to move to Cyprus, or anywhere else away from your roots, there is always the knowledge in the back of your head that you will be further away from your loved ones. You tuck it away, but it is a grim reality. We don't regret moving to Cyprus for one second, but it does make the tough times like this just a little bit tougher.


On that cheery note, let's continue with the blog. I think we could all do with some cheering up.

Lara Bay is a bit of an enigma. If you approach from the direction of Paphos and Coral Bay, on the main road, you may well end at the beach by Lara Bay Restaurant. Confusingly, this is not Lara Bay. So go back to the main track, and continue into the Akamas for a little while longer. The turtles await...

The Necropolis at Meletis Forest

If you drive to the Akamas along the coastal road, you will eventually come off the main road and onto a side road leading to the Akamas proper. Before you go past the Searays cafe bar, you will see a nondescript sign on your right, next to a layby.

The Akamas By Car

Nothing beats exploring the Akamas by car. A decent 4x4 can take you to places you would never normally find on foot, and the aircon can be a real life-saver. Some routes into the Akamas are bumpier than others. In this blog take a relatively bump free route which would suite the more cautious amongst you.
