Ayia Napa

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ayia Napa: Larnaka City (Hala Sultan Tekke & Saint Lazarus Church). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Nissi Beach, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Profitis Elias, and take some stellar pictures from Sea Caves.
