Northwest of Xyliatos village, up on Troodos Mountains in the Nicosia district and less than 1000 m / 0.62 mi from the village center, lies a huge circular crater; a remnant of the mine that was once there from 1954 to 1990. The crater is located right where the ore export point used to be. Following an initiative of the local Community Council, the mine has been filled with rainwater. The result is phenomenal. A peculiar lake dominates now the surrounding mountains.

Kayaking in Diani Beach, Kwale, Coast Province Kenya
The spot is famous for its cross shore, consistent winds, sheltered and flat water conditions allowing for great Kayaking for both amateurs and experienced practitioners.
Wild open wind swept beaches set amidst a background of unspoilt uninhabited tropical bush, crystal clear blue skies, the unbroken swish of the ocean as it laps against deserted shores, sand plumes picking up by a steady 20 knot breeze, allow for a kayaking experience you would never forget. Weather here is under the tropical climate and it rarely gets below 24°C/75.2°F. Rainy seasons are between April-May and October-November with intervals of clear blue skies.
The spacious nature of the beach allows for smooth sailing with no one to crowd you, making it just the right paradise getaway needed.
