Day 3: Soaking in the Sand
The sun rises over the water and draws a glimmering line along the transparent sea. The day is yours to spend as you wish among the beauties of Cyprus. The sand along the beach is golden and warm. It looks like it could encompass the edges of the entire island making every step beside the water as lovely as the last. The water is crystal clear as it laps at the shore. Dip your toes into the wake. The water gently coaxes you farther from the beach, but the water doesn’t get deeper. You can see the sea floor, glassy and wavy beneath the surface. The cool temperature of the water is refreshing on your warm skin. The perfume of the sea rises around you as you leave the beach. Take a seat along the seaside and sip a glass of famous Cypriot wine, one of the oldest winemaking techniques in the world. The xinisteri from Hadjiantonas Vineyard is an indigenous grape variety with a strong aroma of citrus fruit and a lingering crispness to help settle you into the luxuries of Cyprus.
