Ayia Napa holidays have a reputation as being a non-stop fun in the sun. Here you can dance 24 hours a day at a wide choice of bars and nightclubs, soak up the sun on one of the many Blue Flag beaches, hit the waterpark, or enjoy water sports from banana boat rides to scuba diving. Popular with a young crowd looking to make the most of their week or two in the sunshine, there’s a buzzing atmosphere that has earned the town the title of Cyprus’ party capital.
Things to do
The nightlife here may be legendary, but there is lots to keep you busy during the daytime too. Let your toes sink into the soft golden sand on one of the town’s numerous beaches, or hire a sun lounger to sleep off the excesses of the night before. The water is crystal clear and very inviting so if you’re feeling adventurous, choose from the range of water sports on offer, like jet skiing or water skiing. If you’re dreaming of a yachting lifestyle, sign up for a sailing trip to discover hidden coves. Got the kids with you? Head to the nearby Water World waterpark where you’ll find slides and a lazy river for more family fun.
It’s pleasantly warm all year round, but things really hot up, both temperature wise and in the clubs, in July and August.
