Ayia Napa

Things to do - general

Ayia Napa has changed its image somewhat over the years, from a fishing village to a typical Mediterranean beach resort and has now found its place as a multicultural town, catering to all tastes. The Square, central to the town, is filled with restaurants, night clubs and shops. Ayia Napa resort attracts a large number of visitors every year mostly British, Russian, Scandinavian, and all Europe.

It features a large number of sandy beaches. The most popular of these beaches is Nissi beach, which is visited mainly by younger people in the summer and gets quite crowded; another is the Harbour beach known as Limanaki which is one of Cyprus’ longest, and the longest in Ayia Napa. Harbour beach caters more for families. Beach parties are another popular form of entertainment in Ayia Napa.
All beaches in Ayia Napa have been awarded the EU blue flag for their level of cleanliness and facilities.
Cyprus, with 53 Blue Flag beaches, has three records:
1. The most Blue Flags per capita in the world.
2. The densest concentration of Blue Flag Beaches.
3. The most Blue Flag beaches and per coastline length in the world.

The Cyprus Tourism Organization supervises the beaches and is responsible for protecting the interests of all tourists. All beaches during the summer season have lifeguards on duty with lifesaving equipment from 10:00 to 18:00

The resort town of Ayia Napa is widely known for its nightlife and for its long golden sandy beaches for many years. You can spend your days on the lovely Nissi beach or on one of many other lovely beaches, swimming in the crystal blue waters, sun bathing, relaxing and enjoying the surroundings and atmosphere. There are a good range of water sports available; again you will be spoilt for choice. This is a beautiful location with plenty of activities to offer.  If you take a walk around the harbour area you will find some good fish restaurants well worth trying. Sitting in a bar next to the beach as the sun goes down drinking a brandy sour is also highly recommended

Ayia Napa Beaches begin from  Cape Greco which is a ten-minute drive from the Center of Ayia Napa and is considered one of the most beautiful places on the island offering sightseeing, cliff jumping and a variety of other activities.  Kermia Beach which lies west of Cape Greko It’s a secluded golden sandy beach that matches perfectly with the blend of blue from the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the blue backdrop of the sky.

Between Kermia Beach and Nissi beach which lies south west of Ayia Napa you will find numerous of little sandy beaches and secluded coves including Ammos tou Kambouri, Gliki Nero, Pantachou, Loukkos tou Manti, Katsarka, Pernera and Vathia Gonia. Nissi Beach has fine white sand and lovely clear waters and it is a popular beach in the high season with the younger visitors. Here can hire sun-loungers, umbrellas and enjoy the sun, sea and sand. 400m west of Nissi Beach area you will find Sandy Bay which is popular with families.

Golden Bay Beach or Landa Beach is located halfway between Nissi Bay Beach and Makronisos Beach.  So, if Nissi Beach in Ayia Napa is too busy to contemplate, head for Landa Beach instead. Landa Beach is 400 metres of golden sand and calm seas, a perfect place to chill out and relax after a hard night enjoying Ayia Napa’s nightlife.

Macronisos Beach is located just off the Nissi Avenue, in Ayia Napa. This is a quality, blue flag beach that is formed from a cluster of 3 bays. The sand is wonderfully thick and soft. A tractor with a plough treats the sand at the end of the day. It is a very popular and busy beach with its own diving school, if you fancy some scuba.
