Well here we are now into our second year in sunny Cyprus so what more could you wish for than to celebrate our first year here on a lovely beach that we had never been to before with a nicely packed picnic? A bit different from last year on this date as we were flying high in the sky heading here ( see Can’t believe it!! A YEAR AGO – WE MOVED TO CYPRUS!!)
Today’s outing took us to Kourion Beach. We had passed it many times on our way to Limassol and from high up on the hill it looked absolutely amazing so today in celebration the start of our second year here we thought we’d head down to this beach.
There are 3 restaurants on the beach if you happen to want something to eat or drink. There are also life guards at certain points along the beach too. The walk into the sea is lovely and sandy and you can venture out quite far before it starts to get deep. We had a great time wave jumping today.
After playing around in the sea it was time for our picnic and out came the sandwiches and drinks. It was lovely just sitting there watching the waves and the world go by.
Picnic time over and it was time to read…………
Heading home it was time to have an ice cream and we knew the perfect spot to stop with the most amazing view……at the top of the hill looking down towards the Birth Place of Aphrodite (see Aphrodite Greek Goddess of Love, Beauty, Pleasure and Procreation). It was the perfect way to end our perfect day.
One thing we missed doing today was to visit the Kourion Amphitheatre which sits high on the hill above Kourion Beach so if you do happen to venture there make sure you visit it as it looks absolutely amazing.
