The Famagusta region
The district of Famagusta spans both the Greek and Turkish zones of Cyprus. The region itself has the reputation of having some of the best beaches on the island and it is clear to see this fantastic accolade. The region offers an abundance of natural beauty, history and activities catering for many tastes. To the south of the border the region has become the main holiday destination for many as it has an abundance of sunshine, sandy beaches and crystal clear blue warm Mediterranean waters, The area also offers a fantastic choice of nightlife with Agia Napa especially famed for its club scene, Protaras also provides a great choice of pubs and clubs for those who want to dance the night away or just enjoy a relaxing evening out a little nearer the apartment.
Not only does Famagusta offer all the trappings associated with the beach and evening activities, it also provides a great opportunity to see some of the historical sights including medieval churches in villages such as Sotira and places of natural beauty such as Cape Greco.
Famagusta provides a some great activities and things to do for the Children. Water World in Aija Napa is a great place to take the family for a fun filled day of water slides, whirl pools and white water rides.
Paralimni is classed as the shopping centre of the district. If you’re looking for something like Westfield or Blue Water – A word of advise – don’t expect too much – This is shopping Greek Cypriot style – Shops close for lunch and also half day closing one day a week – normally Wednesday.
The weather in Famagusta is usually pleasant all year round. During the summer (between May and September) it can average about 30 during the day and most sun worshippers flock to the local beaches and pools. During Spring and Autumn, the region is pleasant and mild and can be attractive who prefer warm sunny days
The Protaras / Kapparis area
Kapparis is blessed with a number of beautiful sandy beaches which are only a stones throw away from the Mythical Sands resort. Firemans is just across the road from Faliros Restaurant and Malamo is located opposite Folio Restaurant. Both are perfect for families with young children, as the water is very shallow and the beach being very compact. Malamo beach is a great place to try out some of the watersports on offer. While these might be the most popular beaches in the resort, take advantage of the numerous hidden coves and coastal foot paths peppered around the bay if your preference is a little bit of seclusion.
When it comes to restaurants and cafes there is plenty of choice in Kapparis. In the Spring and Summer seasons, it is possible to eat somewhere different every day for a whole fortnight which could be said is one of the many reasons why holiday makers make repeat visits to this small friendly resort.
There are plenty of choices for bars along the main thoroughfare of the village. Many of these offer a variety of entertainment from live music to Satelite sports coverage. There are also a number of bars around which offer something of a quieter more romantic atmosphere for a relaxing drink before dinner.
Apart from the beaches, the restaurants and the bars, Kapparis does also offer a wide range of other amenities including supermarkets, a bakery, car hire, internet café etc.
The village centre is only a very short walk from Helios at Mythical Sands. It is
a very family orientated and unlike other villages in the region, is open all year round. There is a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere about the place and it makes for an ideal ‘get away from it all’ holiday.
How to get there

Both scheduled and budget airlines now fly to the new airport at Larnaca, which is only 45 mins drive from resort. Because there is such a choice of airlines it is a good idea to shop around for the best deals. The earlier you plan and book the cheaper the price – especially with the budget airlines such as Easyjet. Other reliable airlines include Monarch. British Airways flies a daily scheduled service from Heathrow and its worth comparing the prices with the budget lines particularly when it comes to baggage allowance – you’ll be surprised – also you normally get a meal on board.
Driving is Cyprus is not that different to driving in the UK other than the traffic is much lighter. In Cyprus you drive on the left and the road signs are in both in Greek and English.
To get to Mythical Sands from Larnaca Airport is a straightforward journey and should only take you around 45 minutes.
Car rental: There are many rental companies at Larnaca airport which can be arranged when you book your flight. Alternatively you can arrange car rental locally in Kapparis. Details of local rental companies can be made available to you on request.

I stayed here during the summer for 2 weeks with my 2 sisters.. We loved the apartment, very modern and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Lovely spacious balcony, great for catching some sun! Excellent location, close to shops, restaurants and beaches. Overall we had a lovely stay at Helios at Mythical Sands and would definately stay here again! :-)

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment. Booking was easy, directions to apartment concise, and the location and cleanliness of both the apartment and the complex was excellent. The pool was cleaned daily and you could always get a sun lounger whatever day or time of the week it was. The apartment has everything you would require for your stay and the property management company were always on hand if you had any problems. The apartment is situated a stones throw from local shop and restaurants and Fireman's Beach is a five min walk away. Our deposit was returned promptly and Tanya was very helpful in helping with our queries both prior and after booking.
I intend to start saving now so we can return again next year!!!
