Ayia NapaCyprus

Join the party at one of the largest resorts in Cyprus, where the fun happens from dawn until dusk. Doze during the day on pretty beaches or get out into nature.

Ayia Napa is one of the most famous vacation destinations in Cyprus. It is a buzzing, lively place where the sun shines throughout the year and people arrive to relax, play on the beach and dance all night. Join the fun in the sun at this thriving resort.

The resort’s reputation for frivolity is well known. While youthful groups have made up the bulk of Ayia Napa’s clientele for years, today it attracts families and couples with more upscale and quiet developments away from the raucous town center. Discover developments of villas and hotels which have their own beaches.

The town of Ayia Napa has multiple beaches. Join sunbathers on the central Nissi Beach, with its twin bays and plethora of facilities. Head to the beautiful beaches of Makronissos and Landa Beach. Choose from a huge variety of watersports, from banana boating to windsurfing and scuba diving.

The town center is the heart of Ayia Napa’s activities and bars. Enjoy long evenings sipping cocktails and dancing to top DJs in nightclubs or join a bar crawl or foam party. During the day ride a slingshot, dare to try bungee jumping or show off your skills on a bucking bronco.

Visit the 15th-century Ayia Napa Monastery or head to Cactus Park, a sculpture park, for some culture. Experience traditional music and dance at one of the regular festivals held in the town.

Just outside of Ayia Napa is Cape Greco, a delightful national forest park. Spend days hiking, walking or cycling the paths and stopping for a refreshing swim in the waters of Konnos Bay beach.

Travel on one of the dozens of airlines that fly to the Cyprus Larnaca Airport, with extra flights throughout the summer months. From the airport, ride to the resort in about 45 minutes by taxi or shuttle.

It's very touristy, mostly young crowd, but I saw lots of families too. It's a great fun place. The beaches are the best in Cuprus. Public transportation is also good. Locals are friendly and helpful, they speak English and Russian,some even German.
