A mini cruise by boat, Ayia Napa, Cyprus

Discover unspoiled Cyprus
Snapshots by Phivos Nicolaides


A boat cruise is an excellent way to enjoy panoramic views and to get up close and personal with a variety of aquatic life.

A boat trip allows you to enjoy every aspect of your surroundings. (In the picture, our friends from Russia).

Part of Ayia Napa harbour.


A short trip by boaat is a perfect way to see the Ayia Napa coastline.

There are many types of cruises including: a short day cruise, sunset cruise, dinner cruise, and many others.

Promoting the boat cruise in the small harbour of Ayia Napa.


Selling tickets for the mini trip.

Waiting for the customers outside the gorgeous church.
A little bit discussion before deciding for the cruise.

Determined beautiful girls to go cruising.

Oh! Boy, this is your last chance to get the last ticket...
Boarding completed and the 'Happy Cruise' is ready to leave...

A wonderful part of the small fishing harbour.

A short trip looking for fun and adventure in the sun and the blue sea, far away from Russia.

First stop just outside Ayia Napa.

An amazing trip alongside the Ayia Napa coastline.

Offering a unique and unforgettable experience.

The boat visits some of the most beautiful beaches in the region, such as Nissi Beach (photo), Cavo Bay and others. The cute small church is ideal for weddings...

Admiring the unspoiled seaside and swimming in the tranquil waters of the Mediterranean.

The scenery is just beautiful and the sea totally surrounding you in all directions.

The boat trip lasts 2 hours and you have the chance to look at the best beaches of the area.

For the love of the sea. I love your style girl!

Face to face with the beauty of the coast.

Legends of the summer...

Very multicultural on board – Great Britain, Russia, Italy, France, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, USA, Barbados.

You can search the world for pretty girls,
Til your eyes are weak and dim,
But don't go searching for a mermaid, son
If you don't know how to swim...

In the summertime nobody can fall asleap.
Having relaxing daytime and see Cyprus Island from another perspective.

The magnificent Crecian Bay.

A little angel on the ship.

Looking into the big glass bottom view to explore the underwater beauty of Cyprus.

Sunshine and sea fun for Popi, into the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Parachuting, where eagles dare...
Life is nothing but a beach!
Overall the boat trip on the boat was brilliant.

Αγία Νάπα, Μικρές αποδράσεις, μεγάλες συγκινήσεις
Του Φοίβου Νικολαΐδη
Το λιμανάκι της Αγία Νάπας από όπου ξεκινούν μικρές κρουαζιέρες στην περιοχή.
Τα εισιτήρια σας περιμένουν με χαμόγελο.

Σύσκεψη πριν την τελική απόφαση.

Νεαρέ, μην το σκέφτεσαι. Θα περάσεις όμορφα. Πάρε το τελευταίο εισιτήριο!

Φαίνεται ότι έχουν μεγάλη ζήτηση οι μικρές αυτές θαλάσσιες αποδράσεις.

Αποφασιστικοί ταξιδιάρηδες προχωρούν προς το σκάφος.

Το 'Μαύρο Διαμάντι' για την ώρα υποδέχεται αυτούς που θέλουν μόνο ένα ποτό.

Το ταξίδι αρχίζει και οι φίλες μας από τη Ρωσία παίρνουν τις πρώτες φωτογραφίες.
Το θέαμα είναι εξόχως όμορφο και εντυπωσιακό.

Θάλασσα, θάλασσα τι μου' χεις κάνεις, για σένα έχασα κάθε λιμάνι.

Θάλασσες, μέσα στα μάτια σου θάλασσες
και με ταξίδευες, σαν το καράβι κι έλεγες:
Θα σ' αγαπώ με τα καλοκαίρια
με τρικυμίες και με βροχές
με μαξιλάρι τα δυο μου χέρια
θα ονειρεύεσαι ότι θες
Θάλασσες, μέσα στα μάτια σου θάλασσες,
και με ταξίδευες, σαν το καράβι κι έλεγες:
Θα σ' αγαπώ, μη μου συννεφιάζεις,
σαν αμαρτία και σαν γιορτή...
Όνειρα τρελά, που πετούν στο κύμα πάνω, φτάνουν στην καρδιά, και τα νιάτα μας ξυπνάνε όνειρα τρελά και οι πόθοι φτερουγίζουν σαν πουλιά.
Τα καλοκαίρια πες μου πώς μπορώ, μονάχη μου να ζήσω...

Μεσόγειο τη λεν και παίζουνε γυμνά παιδιά με μαύρα μάτια.

Πυρετός το καταμεσήμερο!

Η πανέμορφη ακτή με τη γαλάζια θάλασσα κοντά στο Νησί Μπίτς.

Μαγευτικές εικόνες παντού, ακολουθούν τη διαδρομή.

Για μιά θέση στον ήλιο... στη μικρή κρουαζιέρα κατά µήκος της ακτής της Αγίας Νάπας.

Κανείς δεν κοιμάται το καλοκαίρι...

Μέσα στις θαλασσινές σπηλιές.

Είναι να μην θαυμάζεις ατελείωτα το χρώμα της κρυστάλλινης θάλασσας;

Η εναλλαγή της εικόνας είναι θαυμάσια.

Οι θρύλοι του καλοκαιριού...

Στα ζεστά, καταγάλανα νερά της Μεσογείου,

Αξέχαστες, όμορφες στιγμές στην θαλασσοφίλητη Κύπρο.

Το βαθύτερο νόημα των διακοπών, η απόλυτη ξεκούραση της δράσης!

Το Κρέσιαν Μπέι, λατρεμένη από τους ντόπιους και ξένους, παραλία στην Αγία Νάπα.

Εξαιρετική ομορφιά, περιτριγυρισμένη από το μπλε της Μεσογείου.

Η μαγευτική θέα που καθηλώνει τους ταξιδώτες...

Κάθε τόσο κι ένα διαφορετικό, όμορφο τοπίο.

Η μικρή συνταξιδιώτισσα με την αγγελική μορφή, απολαμβάνει τα γαριδάκια της.

Το ταξίδι τελείωσε...

Ώρα για μπανάκι...

The water looks so inviting! It looks so warm and relaxing. We took a little cruise around the island of Spetse when we stayed there 26 years ago. The water was beautiful.

@ Janie's World. I have been to Spetse island and I know what you mean. The scenery of the sea it's the same. After all we are talking about the the Mediterranean Sea, the most visited area on earth, which apart of the beauty has a tremendous history and culture! Have a great day dear friend Janie!

@ Cheryl. Good morning Cheryl. Popi enjoyed the sea, and I enjoyed more the scenery from and on the Happy Cruise:):)

Μήπως να ξανασκευτούμε την απόδραση για την Αγία Νάπα; Γιατί θωρώ ότι μόνο καλλίγραμες κυκλοφορούν εκεί.Ασε ΚΑΛΎΤΕΡΑ μη φάμε πόρτα!! χα χα χα .
Ωραίες οι φωτό και ηθάλασσα καταγάλανη.

Μοι ήρεσεν η εις την αγγλικήν ποιητική παραίνεσις προς τους νεαρούς...

@ JamanFou. Έταιρον να το βλέπεις και έταιρον να το ζεις, Εξ ού και η 'πατρική', ποιητική παραίνεσις προς άπαντας νεαρούς εις τας περιοχάς αυτάς, υψηλού κινδύνου για καρδιοπάθειες!!! :)

Brad said...

Great and informative post, Phil.
I love the style, the architecture and the overall feel.
And the girls too, of course.
I just came back yesterday from a visit with my parents in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
A bit exhausted but glad to be home :)

Phivos Nicolaides said...

Brad. Hi Brad and welcome back home! Hope one day to visit Cyprus yourself Brad to see all these places.
