Holidays in Ayia Napa

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.

It’s pleasantly warm all year round, but things really hot up, both temperature wise and in the clubs, in July and August.

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.

The sea here is a perfect turquoise and the sandy beaches are clean, making the town a haven for beach lovers. For a bustling vibe, one of the best is Nissi Beach, where you’ll find sunbeds and parasols available to hire. You’ll also find plenty of lively cafés and bars nearby if you need a refuel, and there’s a choice of water sports centres if you’re feeling active. As well as the classic beach favourites like high-charged doughnut rides and pedalos, this is also the spot to book a diving experience. The famous Zenobia wreck is nearby, which is home to some very colourful marine life.

Daytime activities focus around the beach, sea, and watery shenanigans, whether you’re playing on top of or underneath the waves. Sailing trips explore the beautiful coastline and take you to secluded spots for a refreshing swim or to try a spot of fishing. Or you could join a dolphin-spotting safari to catch a glimpse of the local wildlife. Ayia Napa is also home to Water World, a top family attraction that offers a fun way to cool off. There’s dozens of slides, a lazy river and a children’s playground, as well as a choice of restaurants on site.

Most people who head to Ayia Napa come for the nightlife. The town’s square comes alive in the season with big-name party nights as well as an energetic mix of live music, entertainment, bars and pubs. There’s also a thriving clubbing scene over at Nissi Bay, or the harbour offers a more laid-back mood with a selection of upmarket wine bars and restaurants. Keep your eyes peeled for flyers for special nights like UV paint parties and beach parties. Remember it’s a marathon, though, not a sprint, as the clubs stay open until the early morning, and in some cases all the way through until dawn. If you tire of land-based fun and dancing, then why not take the festivities out onto the water with a boat party?
