Amazing Ayia Napa

Known over as a mecca for holidays of sun, sand and wild nights out, Ayia Napa is a diverse island with much more to offer in terms of culture and ancient architecture, as well as being one of Europe’s top party capitals.

Stunning beaches host sun-worshippers throughout the day on holidays to Ayia Napa, who can kick back on the golden sands and enjoy a cheeky cocktail in a beachside bar. By night the resort really comes alive with music, strobe lighting and general high spirits, as the clubs throw open their doors and keep the party going until the sun comes up.

There’s plenty for those in search of culture and history on Ayia Napa holidays, as the island holds much of Cyprus’ ancient monuments and ruins. Beaches, harbours and national parks will be sure to facilitate your relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle.

Beachside Living

Ayia Napa’s resort status is not unfounded, as the town, its outskirts and its coastline host a wealth of indulgent and lavish 5-star hotels, as well as sleek and modern alternatives. The town centre offers a brilliant selection of smaller hotels and guesthouses, perfect for those looking to soak up all the fun on their holidays.

Apartments in the heart of the main strip allow easy access to the main attractions for those looking to take advantage of the nightlife on their holidays in Ayia Napa. An added bonus for those in search of liberation without a designated driver!

For complete seclusion from the tourist appeal, take the short journey over to Paphos for soaring summer temperatures and award winning beaches. Alternatively head inland to the capital city Nicosia to immerse yourself in the performing arts and archaeological museums.

Relaxing Days and Lively Nights

The options are endless when it comes to things to do during Ayia Napa holidays. If family fun floats your boat the island’s amazing attractions are sure to leave you in awe. Whether you enjoy snorkelling or napping by the bay, the family friendly Landa Beach will cater for all your needs. The contrast between the white sand and blue sea is as exotic as it gets. The quieter area is perfect for daytime picnics and romantic retreats, with nearby restaurants offering traditional cuisine in the evenings.

For a similar vibe coupled with stunning unforgettable views, head to the Cape Greco National Forest Park. The rocks and cliffs overlooking the ocean display unmatched natural beauty, with pathways of a similar ilk leading to the culmination of the rock. Pine and juniper trees lace the nature trails and cycling paths. If you’d like to admire the craggy landscape from the other side, boat trips are available, perfect for families and couples.

Of course, Ayia Napa’s main draw is its explosive and unstoppable nightlife. From the swanky cocktail bars that line the beautiful beach front, to the simmering energy of the central clubbing district, nights out are not to be taken in any half-measures on Ayia Napa. Head to either the main square or to Limassol or Larnaca to join a young crowd lapping up clubs and bars.

Commence your evening on the lively Makronissos beach for a party like no other. DJs and live acts grace the stage over summer adding some variation to the night’s entertainment. You may want to pace yourself however, as many of the main clubs stay open until the early hours. Head to the ever-popular Aqua Club, open from 3am till breakfast, or the Castle Club, the largest club in the whole of Cyprus. The strip caters for music lovers of all kinds, with exotic drinks and extravagant settings for a night to remember, hopefully!
