Ayia Napa

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Salamis Ancient City and Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Famagusta City Walls and Landa Beach. Step out of Ayia Napa to go to Famagusta and see St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum, which is approximately 1 hour away. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the pleasant sights at Cape Greco National Forest Park, explore the world behind art at Traditional house, and pause for some serene contemplation at The Church of the Panagia.

For ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Ayia Napa trip planner.
