Ayia Napa

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Salamis Ancient City and Othello Castle. Take a break from the city and head to Landa Beach and Fig Tree Bay. Venture out of the city with trips to Famagusta (Famagusta City Walls, Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, &more). The adventure continues: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, enjoy the sand and surf at Konnos Bay, get great views at Cape Greco View Point, and look for gifts at Taste of Life.

Cardiff, UK to Ayia Napa is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, ferry, and car. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Cardiff to Ayia Napa due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Cardiff in March; daily highs in Ayia Napa reach 23°C and lows reach 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Nicosia.

The legendary birthplace of the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the capital of western Cyprus, the city of Paphos showcases an abundance of archaeological, architectural, and historical sites.
Discover out-of-the-way places like The House of Dionysus and Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church. Get some historical perspective at Church of Agia Kyriaki and post St. Paul and Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery. Explore Paphos' surroundings by going to Aphrodite's Rock (in Kouklia), Latchi (Aphrodite Trail & Latchi Beach) and Kourion Beach (in Limassol City). There's much more to do: do some rugged touring at local off-road trails, explore the historical opulence of Paphos Harbour Castle, take a tour of Edro III Shipwreck, and explore the stunning scenery at Avakas Gorge.
