Ayia Napa & Vicinity
For a little excitement, Ayia Napa, with its many
clubs, bars, shops, restaurants, Luna parks and the largest themed water park in Europe - Water World -
is a ten minute drive away. Enjoy daily boat rides from Ayia Napa out into the inviting Mediterranean Sea, then relax
on golden sandy beaches and enjoy wonderful sunrises and sunsets while picknicking.
Even closer than Ayia Napa is Cape Greco, a national park, and one of the island's
most beautiful and stunning natural landscapes with its natural bays and sea caves. Explore Cape Greco by hiking, biking
or walking along nature trails of wild flora and fauna and stop to listen to the waves crash against the cliff faces.
It is also possible to swim among the caves at the bottom of the cape. The spot is very popular with deep-sea fishermen,
scuba divers and snorkellers.
For those more interested
in historical and cultural sites, you may enjoy visiting Prophet Elias Church, with its dramatic views of
Protaras; the 16th century Ayia Napa Monastery; the Thalassa Museum, dedicated to the marine
heritage of Cyprus; Liopetri Fishing Refuge and Derynia Folk Art Museum.
