Nissi Beach is great, a beach packed full of young people sunning themselves and watersports and bars. The water is shallow and warm and has jet skis, banana boats, a bungee jump and anything inflatable you can think of

2011 hasn't been the best year for Cyprus, in July there was a large explosion that destroyed 50% of the islands power supply. Also the country has a lot of exposure to the Greek economy so much so that the rating agencies have down graded the islands credit rating. That said it doesn't affect the sun! One of the main attractions of Cyrpus is that during the period April to November it almost never rains. When you combine that with being part of the EU and that most of the population speaks good English you begin to see why its so popular with tourist. Most recently it has become really popular with Russians and former countries of the USSR such as Ukraine, seems these are the only ones with money in 2011!
