Beach holidays in Latchi

I return to the room download my photos, put my bathing suite on and I come to the reception where I find my friend Gregoria. She tells me that she worried because she did not see me at all after breakfast this morning and she expected me to come for lunch.

The only thing I want is a cup of coffee and I sit with my friend and tell her about my short trip to Fyti.

Yianni the eldest son shows up with my coffee and a big piece of 'baklava'. I cannot resist this homemade dainty morsel by Anastasi. I remember having one last year when I visited my friends again.

The beach has many residents of the hotel and people coming from the round areas. Since yesterday when I arrived I already know several guests because throughout my stay I like chatting with tourists. My questions are all about holidays in Cyprus, I want to hear their impressions and if there is something they did not like. I always ask about their opinion about the hotel, and check if they know what there is to see in the round area. Of course I help them with tips and I suggest different alternatives and places they can go and the satisfaction I get is that they appreciate this help I give. If they are out to a place I suggested earlier they meet me and tell me all about it.

I feel like home here and I am not exaggerating. I only wished Gregoria had some free time. This lovely lady whom I love like a sister hardly stops the whole day long till late at night and what amazes me is that she cares a lot for each single guest.

When I ask her what is something she really likes to do the answer is…

"Time to Sleep Popi"!

The afternoon I came here and till the last day I left I took advantage of the crystal clear waters and the beautiful pebbled beach. The last day of my stay I decide I will stay in the premises and spend most of the time by the beach. Of course I return to the room for a short break to avoid the sun and return for some more exercising again in the afternoon. I take long walks, swim a lot and chat with several guests.  

Internet connection is free here so I have plenty of time to make all my phone calls, download photos and answer my emails. What else would I want!

I am among friends and I know that they are here for me.

There might not be any Spa treatment like I have in other hotels but the warm family hospitality, the amazing cuisine of Anastasi, the crystal clear waters of the beach are unbeatable.

I wish I had time to stay one or two days more but there is no way. I have to get back to Larnaca.

wow popi i can't get over how clear the water is, and the pebbles as we are used to soft sand here i could not imagine a pebble beach it would be so hard on the feet, and the gentle lapping of the waves compared to the rolling continuous surf here in brisbane is different

The pebbles are very small and it is not that uncomfortable to walk believe me. It is a good massage at the same time. If I am not mistaken, I am zooming here.

I wonder why some beaches have pebbles and other sand. There are lots of pebble beaches in England, but I know of none in America. The classic case is Nice with a pebble beach, and just a few kilometers away, Cannes, with a sandy beach.

The southern part of Cyprus has more sandy beaches I believe, and yes it is kind of peculiar. If it is pebbled the waters are even clearer I believe. I like both.
