Ayia Napa, Cyprus

Ayia Napa, one of Cyprus's most popular beach resorts, well known all over Europe is located southeast of the islands coast. Ayia Napa famous golden beaches are awesome with thin and fine sand, hidden among a chain of rocky boulders that form many small and cosy bays.

The original small fishing harbour was the main area of what was once a small fishing village. Around the harbour several nice restaurants and tavernas offer special sea food.

All boat trips start from here. Just outside of Ayia Napa there is the site of the water park. There are also go-karts and helicopter rides.

Ayia Napa has become synonymous with clubbing on the island. In particular, it has become popular during the summer when is crowded by tourists (British tourists are by far the most prevalent here, as elsewhere on Cyprus).

Ayia Napa attracts thousands of tourists world-wide on account of its fun-loving outlook by night and its sandy Mediterranean beaches by day.
