If you are fond of pulsating nightlife, Ayia Napa is the perfect place for party people. There are many things to do in Ayia Napa, here I have a list of few which prove to be the best of all.
Enjoy Swimming in the sandy beaches with crystal clear water
This part of Cyprus is really blessed with the best of beaches. White and golden sand with crystalline water make it worth to spend a joyful day. Additional benefit is, it’s far away from industries and factories, so you can feel the fresh breeze from all the way. Here I have mentioned 2 of the best beaches you must visit:
If you are in Ayia Napa, you can’t afford to miss the visit of Nissi Beach. What makes it amazing is the white sand that makes sea water in the sky blue color! There is a vast choice of exciting watersports and beach bars that plays mainstream. This emerges to add extra entertainment to your visit here. The sea water is shallow and safe to take a dip and suitable for kids.
There is a small island inside the sea, which is a favorite picturesque for people and a cliff from where you can jump off to sea.
This beach is located in Protaras. The uniqueness of this beach is it’s a closed bay and to reach here, you have to drive or walk from up to down. It is also nice beach with crystalline water and beautiful sand. Right next to the bay, there is a coffee shop to take a break for refreshment, snacks bar to grab a bite and green trees to rest under a natural shades and feel comfortable. If you don’t wish to swim, just sit, have drinks and enjoy wonderful sea view!
Additionally Ayia Napa & Protaras have other beaches named Sandy Bay, Makronissos beach, Grecian Bay, Fig Tree Bay, Green Bay and many more. Hope you find your favorite!
But if you wish to escape crowd, I suggest to find a quite place somewhere on the rocks in national park Cape Greco where you can enjoy precious time with yourself. Just be careful about rocks by entering the sea. Sea Caves with clear water, rocks and various types of fishes underwater is perfect for snorkeling.
If you are at this part of Cyprus, you should go for a boat trip at least once! Why it is so amazing? Because you will have boat tour exactly driving via coastline of national park Cape Greco (Kavo Greco). Unfortunately there is no greenery all around as the cost-line is aroused from the lava ejection but amazing beautiful rocks, sea caves, natural rock’s bridges and crystal clear water are enough to make you go wow.
Party people can choose boats with floating club and bars which provides lots of entertainment and swimming stops.
And if you are self-love who likes to be away from crowd, you can book private boats and cruises to soak up in sun and have a gaze at surroundings just with your family.
Don’t forget to have a visual treat by having a view of sculpture of mermaid facing the sea by the entrance of the harbor.
