Most Fun Things to do on a Quick Visit to Cyprus



places to visit cyprus 1

Cyprus is the first place that comes to mind when talking about the European Islands. Cyprus has a striking aesthetic and offers tourists intriguing things to do. It has captivating beaches and mesmerizing terrains. 

With its charm, visitors are compelled to stop by every year. It is also filled with friendly citizens who help tourists bask in memorable experiences. 

So, if you intend to jump on a quick trip to Cyprus, keep reading this piece to find out exciting activities to try out. Before we continue, you may ask, Can I move to Cyprus from UK? Of course, you can. But you would need a residence permit.

Now, let’s begin!

Visit the Legendary Adonis Baths

In Greek mythology, Cyprus is the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite. It gets more interesting as Adonis Bath is the favorite place of the goddess Aphrodite and her spouse, god Adonis. In fact, they had a lot of children around this bath. 

If you are a fan of Greek legends, you should be excited to visit Adonis Bath, as you can connect the myths to the real world. 

The mythology is only the beginning of the fun as there are many things to enjoy at Adonis bath. Start by enjoying a refreshing swim in the bath. Take two steps further as you partake in mud therapy and hike up the terrains surrounding the bath. 

The adventure doesn’t stop at the bath. Take a stroll around the community while gazing at beautiful statues—including a 10-meter tall statue of Adonis—spread across the area. It is a hypnotic arena to get lost in your imagination if you love creative pieces. Oh, we forget! The photo gallery and museum are a must-stop. 

Spend a day at the Beach

The first thing we introduced about Cyprus is a location with captivating beaches. A beach may not be top on your list if you are a European used to cold atmospheric conditions. However, there are countless activities that you can enjoy on the beach, other than merely getting wet. You must pick between staying on the shore and enjoying the waters. 

Mind you, Cyprus receives a good amount of sunshine every year. So before you head on your trip, pick up a book and take tanning materials.

The only disadvantage of visiting beaches in Cyprus is that you’d find it hard to pick a beach. You will not only find an astonishing number of beaches but also struggle to pick as all these beaches provide mesmerizing experiences for visitors. 

Whether you choose Lashi, Pissouri, or Governor’s beach, the experience is worthwhile. We advise you to bring a good camera to avoid regrets as scenic views surround the beaches. 

Enjoy Traditional Cypriot Dishes

Our earlier suggestions have revealed that Cyprus is not only beautiful but filled with mesmerizing experiences. The food makes up your Cypriot experience. Of course, a tourist experience is not complete without trying out the local dishes. 

We’d expect that Cypriot dishes would be majorly seafood, considering that Cyprus is composed of Islands. That’s not true. In fact, it is a combination of vegetarian beans, pulse-based dishes, and seafood. The dishes are inspired by communities such as Greece, Venice, Turkey, Britain, and France. 

You should also remember that eating meals is more or less a celebration in Cyprus. So, expect to eat a lot. Remember to try out Halloumi cheese and Commadaria (the sweet dessert wine) during your adventure.

Explore the Sea Caves at Ayia Napa

Ever thought of exploring a place where pirates once stored looted booties? Maybe you’d find a gemstone or a rare painting. Legends carried the story that pirates made the sea caves at Ayia Napa their hiding place. 

While you may not be scouring for looted treasures, you can partake in other activities. The sea caves at Ayia Napa hold not too deep waters, so they can be an excellent place for fun activities. Try snorkeling, cliff diving, and swimming if you visit the sea caves. 

Another exciting activity is fishing. Come with your baits and lures to find the tastiest sea fishes. You may even find some octopuses. 

Wrapping Up

The list of fun things to do in Cyprus is inexhaustive. Even though we’ve listed the most exciting things to do, be open to trying out more. You can partake in the famous Limassol Carnival or try out wreck diving. If you are moving to the US, stopping at Cypriot is a must.

While industry players and ‘ordinary’ citizens strive to see a miraculous change in new event organizations, a new yardstick has been created – the Global Citizen Festival. (more…)

thumbnail 1
Being uniquely creative in a saturated industry as the fashion industry requires more than just the ability to make a perfect stitch. Just as they say, Imagination encircles the world. Ellanore; a Ghanaian fashion brand through its creative ingenuity is spearheading a new paradigm in today’s fashion space.
Raised in a fashion-obsessed household, Emmanuella Abena Amankwah, an old student of Radford University, the face behind the undisputed brand ELLANORE, has grown to become a household name in the fashion industry while cherishing her desire and strides to make fashion her residence and also, ignite some difference while at it.
Born and raised in Ghana by an affectionate and devoted fashion-oriented mother, Emmanuella, from the get go knew what she wanted, and marked her tracks in achieving that.



Though her ambitions of becoming a seasoned fashion designer were boundless and could not be distracted, she was poised for global excellence and has since worked assiduously towards that.
Her love to create and bring her creative designs to life has been the foundation of her brand. As talented as she is, it is no surprise her outstanding works speak heavily for themselves. Her secret, the desire to see her customers satisfied and happy.
Emmanuella began her fashion brand in 2017 and jumped unto the online platform in the year 2020. She is an all-round fashion designer with great experience in both haute couture and ready-to-wear pieces. She strives to create clothes that are both useful and aesthetically pleasing to stay relevant.
For her, making a perfect garment demands more than just body measurement. The herculean process of creating and making an ideal gown goes through diverse analysis and selection process, including who is wearing it, where it is being worn, and how it must be worn.
While at this, there is also the task of considering materials to work with, as well as a range of colors, designs, accessories, and styles to choose from.
As the creative face behind the Ellanore brand, Emmanuella Abena Amankwah focuses on certain concepts and as a fashion designer, centers on making a statement when it comes to her designs rather than selling out.
According to Abena Amankwah, though the work sometimes can be nerve-racking and stressful, her daughter and family have been her biggest source of inspiration. She however added that it is most fulfilling to receive recommendations from clients who happily wear your brand’s custom-made outfits.
Ella, whose mother takes center stage of her business and growth obviously has got a big shoe to fill, and that she take with pride.
Madam Jane Eck of Janeck Fashion has been a major source of strength to her daughter. Though aged, madam Jane Eck till date, oversees production and plays a role in the affairs of Ellanore. It is no wonder their works exhumes so much life.
Speaking on some challenges associated with her work, the CEO of Ellanore mentioned that with a chunk of her client being foreign-based, it sometimes becomes a challenge to get accurate measurements since you would have to take customers through a guided live video session on how to take body measurements.
Yet, Emmanuella and her team know no limitations, work on all body types and shapes, and nail them all. Even though her brand specializes in making clothes for women, she still has plans on bringing men on board.
As a brand, she specializes in creating clothes which will sway you away, put a smile on your face and leave constantly satisfied. To Emmanuella, her customers are her first and foremost priority.
Her loving and pursuing heart makes her fond of her clients and makes sure they enjoy working with her. Her adventurous spirit creates a satisfying environment to slay on her designs.
She aims at adding beautiful touches to her work from size 6 down to even a size 22. She hammers the word neat in her job description and makes it professional.
Ellanore has been in the fashion design industry for 5 years and she’s not stopping until her dream of becoming a world-known fashion label becomes a reality.

Ghana’s new dancing super-talent, Endurancegrand steps into the light with her effervescence




Dance With Purpose Academy (DWP) have established themselves as one of the best producers of dance talent on the African continent. One of their most exciting prospects emerging on the scene is Endurancegrand.

Born Endurance Dzigbordi Dedzo, the dancing queen who has been stepping gracefully to the rhythm since she was 7-years old has already performed on some of the biggest stages in the country including the VGMA, TV3, Coca Cola, Ghana Football Awards, Ghana’s Most Beautiful and most recently, The Global Citizen Festival: Accra as part of the DWP Academy collective during Usher’s show-stopping performance. To top that impressive feat, she has also worked with brands like AirtelTigo and Dark & Lovely.

Endurancegrand’s interest in dance was piqued by her brother-in-law, Joshua Rana, back when she was just a kid who loved playing football, video games and singing; and she has never looked back since. For her, dancing has never been just a job or a simple means to an end, dancing has always been the “end” itself, her north star. “I faced neglect, doubt and lost some people very close to me because I chose dance as a career but that did not stop me because I always knew what I wanted. To me, dancing is just as important as the air I breathe or the water I drink. Dancing is my life! When I step on the stage, nothing else makes sense. Only my body and the rhythms and energy it releases”, Endurance describing what dancing means to her.

The Capricorn dancer’s biggest dream is to be able to touch lives globally, travel around the world to share her knowledge to the young and old and show women around the world that they can be whatever they choose to be.
