The family-friendly, fun-packed Nissi Bay has the best white sand beach in the area leading down into a beautifully clear turquoise sea. Unsurprisingly, this makes it very popular with beach lovers and families, but this resort on the edge of Ayia Napa on the south coast of Cyprus still has a laid-back, relaxed vibe, rather than the usual crowded chaos! The party town of Ayia Napa is within walking distance, perfect if you want to dip into and out of its vibrant nightlife on your Nissi Bay holiday. There are also plenty of activities for the kids nearby, from go-karting and mini-golf to the multitude of slides and pools at Water World, Cyprus’ biggest waterpark.
Things to do
The soft white sand of Nissi beach is the perfect place to play games or hire a sun lounger to relax. The vibrant blue sea beyond will tempt you in for a refreshing dip or to try out one of the many water sports on offer, from jet skiing to banana boat rides. This is also a great place to explore under the water, scuba diving on the famous Zenobia wreck. Away from the water’s edge there’s also lots to keep everyone entertained on holidays in Nissi Bay. From sampling delicious local or international cuisine in the cafés and restaurants of Nissi Avenue or in neighbouring Ayia Napa, to the exhilarating thrills of the waterpark, there’s plenty to see and do on a holiday to Nissi.
