I know right… can things get more idyllic? Melanda is a small beach a little way outside of Limassol (where we were staying). You drive through some fields with hay bales and olive groves, along a dirt road until you hit this small taverna and a pebble beach with a few small boats. We swam until the sun started setting. We watched the almost full moon rise out of the sea. And we ate a simple meal of village salad and grilled haloumi with chips.
