Holidaymakers in Cyprus recently took part in a spot of record-breaking sunbathing when the world’s biggest beach towel was unveiled at a massive summer party on Sunday, June 1st.

The gigantic azure-blue towel was the focal point of the unique beach party organised by Aeolos Travel and at the beautiful beach of Fig Tree Bay in Protaras.

Covering 1900 square metres of the sandy beach, the towel - which measured 64 x 31 metres and is now registered in Guinness World Records – bore the logo. All those who attended the party as part of their Cyprus holiday were offered the chance to take part in the unique record-winning event.

Guinness representative Ms Jenny Karambiki measured the towel before it was officially recognised as being a record-breaker. The relevant certificate was then presented to Sotos Stephanou, managing director of Aeolos Travel and, to the cheers of tourists who witnessed the special occasion during their holiday in Cyprus.

A large number of holidaymakers joined in the celebrations, which lasted from morning until sunset. Their summer holiday in Cyprus was enhanced by an all-day entertainment programme which included traditional local dancing and musical performances from a range of artistes.

The event was covered by a live radio link, provided by Energy radio 107.6, and featured competitions to win special prizes offered by the party’s organisers and sponsors.

As a memento of their Cyprus holiday every participant will have a small piece of the record-making beach towel sent to their home.

Sponsors of this event were the Municipality of Paralimni, Movie Couriers, Hummer Cars, Capo Bay Beach Hotel, Cyprus Airways, and CTO. Media sponsors were Sigma TV, Radio Energy 107.6 and City Free press newspaper.
