Ayia Napa

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Sea Caves and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Ayia Napa: Larnaca (Church of Saint Lazarus, Mckenzie Beach, & more) and Famagusta (Salamis Ancient City & Famagusta City Walls). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Nissi Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Saint Charalambos, steep yourself in history at Zenobia Wreck, and take in the pleasant sights at Cape Greco National Forest Park.
