Ayia Napa

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Adrenaline & Extreme Tours. Explore Ayia Napa's surroundings by going to Famagusta (Famagusta City Walls & Salamis Ancient City). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape Greco National Forest Park, kick back and relax at Pantachou Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Church of the Panagia, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Landa Beach.

Cyprus travel guide

4.1
Beaches · Ruins · Castles
From sandy beaches to stone castles, and from bustling nightclubs to romantic tavernas, Cyprus is the perfect destination for those who seek a complete Mediterranean experience. Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture. Beyond the divide between the predominantly Greek south and Turkish north, throughout the island you'll recognize Venetian, Genoese, British, and Middle Eastern influences. Of course, the main attraction that draws tourists from all over the world is the sunny coast, dotted with historical cities and fully equipped beaches. There is also a selection of peaceful villages, both inland and by the sea, where those looking for a more secluded holiday can retreat. A visit to the country's capital Nicosia, with its vibrant art and culture scene and numerous sightseeing opportunities, is definitely worth adding to your itinerary wherever you're staying.
