Why go to Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa on the island nation of Cyprus has a split personality: holidaymakers seeking peace are welcomed warmly in this Mediterranean hotspot, while thrill seekers and ardent clubbers will be in paradise with a great selection of jumping night spots to tick off the holiday hotlist.

While Ayia Napa holidays are famed for a vibrant party scene, it has a softer side too - and it can be found on the pillow-like sands along the stunning coastline...

The white sandy bay at Nissi Beach is well known as a beauty spot on the eastern shore of Cyprus, while Grecian Bay and watersports Mecca Macronissos Beach also attract holidaymakers looking to spend their days sprawled out on the velvety shoreline or dipping their toes into the warm Mediterranean (or going wild with the watersports).

Family holidays in Ayia Napa (also known as Agia Napa) are hugely popular too, with hotel staff that know how to keep little ones amused and plenty of shallow seas for youngsters to paddle safely in. There's also WaterWorld water park, where squeals of delight echo around the walls of “Ancient Greece”. The theme might be old, but modern thrills attract thousands of visitors every year.

History buffs will be delighted with the Venetian Monastery in Ayia Napa, shoppers will be drawn to the main square, which fills with craft stalls most evenings, and there are plenty of cafés and restaurants around town where the conversation, and the music, is hushed.
