Looking for some great Half Term activities?
We all know that going on holiday with our kids means finding half term activities suitable for the whole family. And, they need to be especially entertaining. If you are staying in or around Paphos, here are a few of the top suggestions that may be just the ticket; for you and your family.
Latchi Watersports Centre
Did you know that you can hire the smallest boat for just €55 for one hour? It is licensed for up to 6 people and is a great introductory boat for those people looking for a quick drive out on the open water. If you’re looking for a little more luxury, why not book a full day on one of our largest self-drive boats. We have boats from 50hp right up to 250 hp and, the most luxurious also have a cabin. See them by clicking here!
Need some water sports toys? No problem, we have Waterski, Wakeboards, Tubes and fishing equipment. We also provide snorkelling equipment and an ice box completely FREE OF CHARGE. Check out our reviews on Facebook and TripAdvisor and get ready for some unforgettable half term activities on the water.
You can fly solo or tandem though small children can only fly with a responsible adult. There are no restrictions regarding height, age or weight, providing you can fit in the harness! Health issues or disabilities do not preclude you from enjoying this activity. And, get to see the Akamas National Park from the air. Who knows? If you’re lucky, you may see dolphins and turtles that are regular visitors to our coastline.
We make daily fun dives for qualified divers to several dive sites along the Akamas. Including St. George’s island; which is known as one of the best dive sites in the west of Cyprus. St. Georges’ 40-metre wall is teeming with life and the water is so clear that seeing is believing.
We run courses for absolute beginners and for those advancing to instructor level. A small health questionnaire must first be completed. The only stipulation is that you must be 8 years or older to take part.

Whoa! This is a big one. We have Watersports half-term activities for everyone, including Jet skis, tube rides, canoes, banana rides, wakeboard and skiing lessons and tows. We provide dinghy sailing for beginners or for intermediates. Why not take an internationally recognised certificate? We are an RYA (‘Royal Yachting Association’) Training Centre; for both sail and power.
Luxury Personified and the ultimate in true sailing. We currently have an offer for a Champagne breakfast in the blue lagoon on one of our luxury sailing yachts. Choose from our Bavaria 41 or Jeanneau 349. Both are amazing, and you’ll have an expert captain to keep you safe. That way, you can just sit back and relax.
Sailing the Akamas on your own private yacht charter is also the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion such as; a wedding, an anniversary or a birthday
