Holidays in Nissi Bay

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.

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.

Considered the best beach in the area, the Blue Flag Nissi Beach is also regarded as one of the finest in the whole of Cyprus. There are places to hire sun loungers and umbrellas, and lifeguards are on hand to watch out for your safety. You can walk all the way to Ayia Napa along the soft white sand. Along the way you’ll find lots of beach cafés and bars. You’ll also find a wide choice of water sports on offer, from pedalos to speedboat hire. Ready to explore under the waves? Then book in for a lesson with one of the many dive centres. For a bit of quiet relaxation, the Nissi Bay end of the beach tends to be less crowded.

 

If the kids ever tire of splashing in the sea and playing on the beach, you’ll find plenty of other things to do with them. One must do on everyone’s list is the Water World water park, which is just a five-minute drive away. Relax in the lazy river, chill in the wave pools, or whizz down the choice of slides. There’s something to suit all ages, and you can grab a quick pizza or fish and chips for lunch at the park’s cafés. If you’re feeling competitive, challenge the family to a race at the popular Seasons Go Karts in Ayia Napa. Or aim for a hole in one with a game of mini golf by Nissi Bay’s waterfront.

The stunning Cyprus coastline is best admired from the water, and you’ll find a plenty of boat trips setting sail from nearby Ayia Napa’s harbour. Catch a glimpse of the colourful underwater life without getting wet with a glass bottom boat trip, or see dolphins in the wild on a dolphin-spotting safari. When you’ve worked up an appetite, head to Nissi Avenue, for a wide choice of family-friendly restaurants and sophisticated bars serving something to suit every taste. From fast-food to slow-cooked local delicacies and fresh seafood, you can take your pick. If you’re after even more choice or are planning a big night out, Ayia Napa’s legendary clubbing scene is right on the doorstep.
