Ayia Napa, a coastal resort located at the eastern end of the southern coast of Cyprus, is famous for its golden sandy beaches attracting a vast number of tourists each year. When the Turkish invasion in 1974 resulted in the inaccessibility of the majority of the Famagusta area, tourists began steadily visiting Ayia Napa which at that time was only a tiny fishing village. Today it is a major tourist attraction in Cyprus not only for its wonderful beaches but also for its amazing nightlife.
The Square in Ayia Napa is well known for its abundance in clubs, pubs, parties and other events. There are also plenty of food outlets such as fast food, Chinese and of course more traditional local restaurants which can be found along the route from the square all the way down to the harbour. Don’t dismiss Ayia Napa if you are looking for a more relaxing family holiday though, there is plenty to do and see for families. Many families make their way to the quieter but well known Nissi Beach where the water is calm and crystal clear. Other holiday activity available includes water sports, karting, bowling, a marine park and great boat trips – You will definitely find something for all ages when choosing Ayia Napa as your holiday destination.
