How do I meet people in Cyprus?
When we asked people living in Cyprus about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:
"There is a selection of British and Cypriot bars, these are a good meeting place. Also, the local garden centre which offer tea & coffee at the weekend,"
added another person in Frenaros.
"Initally contact with expats living around you.
I have not joined any clubs but have a lot of leisure contact both with my Greek and expat neigbours,"
remarked another retiree in Protaras.
"The expat population is mainly British and so there are many pubs. I know of no organizations in my area. I do volunteer at the Argos Animal Sanctuary. The is a walking group in the area.
There are large Russian and eastern European poulations in Limassol and Larnaca,"
said a retiree who moved to Frenaros, Cyprus.
"Join online forums such as BFC Trading Post Cyprus Limassol Living and also Cyprus-AngloInfo as they are full of information - before you move to Cyprus.
We also have the UKCA club in the town which is frequented by UK ex-pats.
If you are an animal lover, there are loads of sanctuaries that are seeking voluntary help and we also have the Samaritans who regularly need assistance,"
said another retiree in Limassol.
"Anglican Church Ladies Guild (for older women 45+), Birdlife Cyprus (for environmentalists), School PTA (for parents), University groups (for younger people),"
commented one retiree living in Nicosia, Cyprus.
"Cyprus is a free and easy place where 90 percent speak English. Most of Cyprus life reveolves around small cafes and bars,"
explained one retiree living in Limassol.
