Holidays in Ayia Napa
Once a quiet fishing village, Ayia Napa is probably the best-known Cypriot holiday resort. It has gained a reputation for being the island’s party paradise, but this delightful town offers much more than sleek clubs and bars. Endless summer sunshine, white powdery beaches, narrow cobbled streets and busy squares create an exciting resort with endless entertainment options.
Ayia Napa features a charming harbour with pretty fishing boats and a historical Venetian Monastery which give a lovely insight into past times. Located 45 km east of Larnaca on the far eastern end of the south coast of Cyprus, Ayia Napa boasts a handful of lovely beaches which have all been awarded the prestige EU Blue Flag for their cleanliness and facilities (the entire island has been awarded 53 Blue Flags, which is the highest number per capita in the world). Nissi Beach is particular popular among young people with its amazing range of water sport from scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing, canoeing to speed-boating. The Harbour Beach is one of the longest beaches in Cyprus and is well suited for families with less hectic ambiance, whilst the New Golden Bay Beach is less crowded but still has some facilities including a modest range of water sport.
Other exciting activities for the whole family include mini-golf, Go Karting and the Mini Park, which is great for children with small rides and games, and a large Bungee ride for the brave hearted!
When it comes to eating out, Ayia Napa caters for all tastes and ages. Choose from beach-side restaurants serving casual snacks and meals, traditional Greek meze bars, international fast food & buffets and fine-dining at the harbour. If you are staying self-catering, Ayia Napa has a good range of supermarkets scattered throughout the resort.
There is plenty to do to keep holidaymakers entertained in Ayia Napa. Whether you are a beach lover, interested in history and culture or love buzzing nightlife, Ayia Napa will definitely keep you busy. For great nightlife, head to the ‘Square’ where happy party-goers move from bar to bar. The monastery and its well-kept garden in the middle of town is worth a visit and is like stepping back in time. Or head to the deserted town of Famagusta for a day trip to get an excellent overview of the area’s history.
