Ayia Napa

One of Cyprus most famous resorts, the once quaint village of Ayia Napa, is nowadays a bustling, cosmopolitan resort; a haven for nightlife lovers, who can relax on the warm Mediterranean sun on one of its three “Blue Flag” beaches.

The resort also offers plenty of exciting activities for families and its glittering clear azure waters and marble sandy beaches will greatly satisfy beach lovers.

Together with the famed nightlife and the beautiful white beaches of Ayia Napa, the highlights of the resort are the Venetian monastery, origin of the town, which overlooks the harbour. Cape Greco, one of the most beautiful sights in Cyprus, is just 10 minutes drive.

The long sandy beach gently shelves into the sea making it perfect for young families. Also the water park with its slides, the water activities on the beach and the animation programmes in most hotels makes Ayia Napa a perfect holiday destination for all the family.

Ayia Napa offers a rich variety of restaurants to meet every palate expectations offering international cuisine and Cypriot traditional dishes.

Arguably one of the best nightlife in the Mediterranean, the town of Ayia Napa, particularly around the “Square” is filled with pubs and clubs that open until late.

Watches, sunglasses, clothing, cameras and jewellery are available at prices up to 30 percent cheaper than in Ireland. Local handcrafts including beautiful embroidered Lefkara lace, original ceramic pottery, artistic silver jewellery, baskets, woven and silk goods and high quality leatherwear are also on offer.

The warm waters of the Mediterranean offer a big choice of watersports, including water-skiing, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, pedal boats, motor boats, parasailing, scuba diving and snorkelling.
