Despite its lively past, Ayia Napa has built a new, sparkling reputation as Southern Cyprus’ most up-and-coming resort town. When we imagine this one-of-a-kind destination, pictures of unspoilt beaches, ancient landmarks, and magnificent natural landscapes spring to mind. Ayia Napa has everything you need and more for a fantastic family holiday, with a brilliant selection of shops, taverns and restaurants offering every type of cuisine you can think of. Plus, with over 300 sunny days each year and one of the best Mediterranean climates, summer seems to last forever!
Ayia Napa is the ultimate beach holiday spot, with a breath-taking rugged coastline sprinkled with hidden coves and pristine bays. With fourteen blue flag beaches to choose from, the quieter Nissi beach, renowned for its golden sand and shallow waters, is perfect for families seeking a secluded getaway. To get your daily dose of adrenaline, head to Makronissos Beach for a range of thrilling water sports, including jet skiing and kite surfing.
