It really was excellent! Blue Lagoon is something you should not miss visiting Cyprus! Boat captain and staff were super friendly and did everything possible so we can enjoy our cruise. Food was delicious and most of fruits and vegetables were grown by captain family. We had a wonderful swimming time in Blue Lagoon, delicious dinner, music, bar, and everything you might think of during such an activity. Unforgettable memories, thank you very much!
