Travelling across the world is one of the things that I wanted to accomplish in life. Being to a foreign place gets me that feeling of excitement where I’ll get to see many beautiful faces from all walks of life and at the same time learn new things from that country as well. My travel to Cyprus with my fiancée was such a blast. I never imagined that it could be so wonderful. There, we had a romantic escapade in Cyprus that we surely wanted to do again and again.
Upon arriving at the airport, I just can’t believe that I am actually on Aphrodite’s Island. It’s really a perfect place for lovers like us and even for families as well. On the other hand, if you have intentions of going to Cyprus alone, then it is also a great place to find your soul mate. Searching for that special person in Cyprus is not that impossible, since you are in the place where the goddess of love and beauty is born.
Of course, since we are in one of the Mediterranean islands, we really planned to explore Cyprus’ beaches because from what I’ve heard, it’s really fit for lovers like us. However, our first stop was in Limassol, Kolossi Castle. I’ve been so fascinated about castles from around the world, which is why exploring one on the island is on my top list. The castle was actually the Grand Commandery of the Knights Templar, which is why it is built along the southwestern coastline. The castle was also made as a sugar production facility.
We also went to the Lefkara Village, the place is known for its lace and silver handicrafts, which are two of my favorite things in life. From there I witnessed how laces were crafted and we even visited a wax museum after. The village has cobbled streets and stone houses. You should also visit the churches and the chapels and be amazed of its infrastructure. Examples of these are the Saint Minas Convent and the Machairas Monastery.
Then, we headed to the beaches since we really planned to serenade Cyprus on our last days of our stay in the island. From white, to golden, and even dark sands, the island’s beaches has it all for you. If you also like pebble and rock beaches, or lagoon styles, then you can surely have the best of both worlds. You don’t have to worry since all the beaches on the island are very clean and are all safe for bathing and other water activities. If you haven’t heard about it, well almost 50 of Cyprus’ beaches were awarded a Blue Flag.
My personal choice of stay was in Limassol since the hotels are located on the shoreline. Limassol has also a combination of dark sand and white rocks, which is a breathtaking sight to behold. However, you can also explore some of its beaches like the ones located at Konnos Beach, where you will be able to set foot on golden sands, or if you want to walk on darker sand, then you should choose to explore the beaches of Larnaca.
To wrap it all up, a travel to Cyprus should certainly be included in your bucket list most especially if you are with your special someone. You will surely get to experience a romantic escapade in Cyprus that you just can’t imagine.
