The natural beauty of Cyprus
One of the most popular resort towns on the island of Cyprus, Ayia Napa is a destination that has it all. Located on the southeast coast, it is home to 14 blue flag beaches, so you really are spoilt for choice. The name Ayia Napa derives from a Venetian monastery. In Greek, Ayia means “holy”, and Napa means “wooded valley”. Long ago, there used to be a thick forest that surrounded the town, hence the name. Famous for its party scene, there are over 80 bars in and around the Central Square, but there is so much more to love about this holiday hotspot.
There are plenty of things to do in Ayia Napa. Experience the interesting culture with a visit to Ayia Napa Monastery. Situated in the middle of the charming old town, it was constructed in 1500AD. Don’t stop there though as the Ayia Napa Aqueduct and Makronissos Tombs are also worth a visit.The tombs are located to the west of Ayia Napa and are made up of 19 rock-cut tombs, a small sanctuary and an aged quarry.
