Despite the numerous benefits of big tech and smart devices that make everyday life easier, more people continue to seek out places and experiences that allow them to disconnect. In fact, remote destinations and a happy human community is the new luxury in travel, according to recent reports on sustainable and off-the-grid adventures. With over 300 days of sunshine a year in Cyprus, Protaras and Ayia Napa are two of the most natural and breathtaking places to find a unique off-grid experience that is balanced out by luxurious villa comforts.
Underwater Adventures and Offshore Views
To experience the best possible views of the coast of Cyprus, from Ayia Napa to Protaras, you’ll want to drop your phones and head out on a day cruise or shipwreck dive. Sightseeing boats typically offer two levels to choose from in order to get the best view of places such as Konnos Bay, Green Bay, the Ayia Napa and the Sea Caves. Pack a swimsuit and disconnect from everything as you stop at various swimming sites and immerse yourself in the calm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Pirate boat trips are another great off-grid option, especially for families with younger children who love fantasy and anything adventure-related. If you’re still aching for some more fun in the sun, you can enjoy luxurious dips in your villa pool when you return home for the evening and then relax inside with all of the comforts you need and love.
Reconnect with Nature and Yourself
Part of the point of going off-grid is to allow yourself time to reconnect and rejuvenate. Seeing as Cyprus is directly in line with one of the major bird migration routes in the Mediterranean, you can witness over 200 bird species crossing the island each year, making it a great spot to grab some binoculars, pack a lunch for the family and head out to birdwatch. The Ayia Sculpture Park and a visit to the Church of Profitis Elias are two other great options for fun sightseeing that don’t require you to connect to the internet or use any sort of digital device. If you’re still feeling a bit stressed, you can order a massage straight to your villa’s patio and enjoy connecting to yourself and the natural sounds around you.
What to Pack for a Cyprus Adventure
Off-grid travel companies are beginning to emphasize how to enjoy your adventures and live in the moment without being connected to your smartphone. Certain companies encourage participants to hand over their phones and favor of savoring the experience instead of uploading it to Facebook or Instagram. This means that what you’ll need to pack for an off-grid Greek adventure is really simple and should be packed into one simple backpack. You’ll only have to factor in sunscreen, sunglasses, breathable clothing, possibly swimwear and a lot of water and a snack. Everything else you need will be waiting for you in your villa.
Indulging in a Cypriot Getaway
Home to numerous beaches, breathtaking scenery and even secluded mountains, Cyprus is a hotspot for tourists looking to disconnect from it all. Abandoning modern civilization doesn’t mean abandoning simple luxuries that will entice you to live life to the fullest and really immerse yourself in the surrounding culture in Cyprus, Greece or beyond.
