Sun, Sea and Elegance: Why Cyprus is a Popular Destination for Hen weekends
Fondly known as the island of Love, Cyprus makes for a great destination to visit on a Hen holiday, before you embark on the greatest love journey of your life. Take your favourite group of girls of for a fun-tastic adventure into the warm, welcoming depths of the Mediterranean, and you’ll all be sure to come back with fond memories as well as a great tan!
Here are some great reasons why booking your hen weekend in Cyprus, will guarantee a fantastic event for all tastes.
The Weather: Let’s face it, with almost 365 days of sunshine a year, Cyprus is a pretty good place to come and enjoy a wealth of outdoor activities such as quad biking, paintballing, Grand Prix Go Carting, Abseiling, rock climbing, horse riding, hiking in the beautiful mountains or getting the adrenalin pumping with a jeep safari or a Honda Enduro Motorbike Experience.
The Beach: And seeing as the sun is shining, what better place to top up the pre-wedding tan than on one of Ayia Napa’s famous beaches. If all that lazing around in the sand is getting you restless, water sports activities are ten a penny in Cyprus, including jet skiing, Catamaran Cruising, renting a yacht or parasailing. Alternative action seekers can also go for an sub aquatic adventure with a spot of underwater sea walking.
The Cuisine: One of the best things about the local Cypriot food is that, when eating out at a ‘Taverna’ you get to taste a little bit of everything with the traditional ‘Meze’ style dining concept. Dip into delicious fish straight from the sea, succulent homemade sausages and the freshest veggies and salads on a Local Cuisine feast activity, and when you’ve eaten double your body weight in Souvlaki and Halloumi, try a Cooking Workshop in Paphos and learn how to make your own dishes from Italy, Japan and India.
Friendly Locals: Famous for their inherent hospitality, Cypriots welcome visitors with open arms, big smiles and enough stories to get you through copious bottles of Zivania! And although the infamous Greek God’s are originally from mainland Greece, the swarthy, dark, Mediterranean gene is carried through to the islanders. Get extra friendly with the locals by hiring one of them for a private strip show or a butler in the buff.
Great Accommodation: Whether you are a huge group of crazy party girls, a small party of sophisticated ladies, or a mixed group of all ages, you will find accommodation to suit your needs and your budget. We can help you to find a gorgeous villa to rent, or book you into a chic luxury hotel. Did we mention the sea views and the sunshine streaming in the open windows every morning to wake you up!
Buzzing Nightlife: Ayia Napa is well deserving of its title as one of the top summer party destinations in Europe, with huge clubs, internationally renowned DJ’s and even pirate boat parties. And Cyprus’ exciting night life doesn’t end there. Paphos is also teeming with a great selections of bars and clubs, the best of which can be tested on a VIP Bar and Club Night. Make the hen drinking into an day-time activity with a wine tour or a brewery tour.
Tourism Sites: Well known for its sun, sea, sand and sexy nightlife, Cyprus is also home to some interesting and well-worth visiting tourism sites such as the alleged birthplace of Aphrodite, Apollo’s Temple, the ancient Korion Amphitheatre and the stunning Paphos mosaics. In between all the relaxing and the revelry, take some time to visit some of these historical tourism hot spots. You’ll be glad you made the trip.
