Ayia Napa is a Mediterranean Resort Town

Ayia Napa is a Mediterranean resort town on the southeast coast of Cyprus, known for its beaches. The town’s main landmark is the storied, Venetian-era Ayia Napa Monastery, which stands in the central square of Plateia Seferi, surrounded by bars and clubs. Freshly caught seafood is served at Ayia Napa Harbour’s busy tavernas, while adjoining Pantachou Beach offers a stretch of golden sand.

Near the town center, the Thalassa Municipal Museum is a maritime museum home to Kyrenia II, a replica of an ancient Greek merchant ship. Heading west along the coast, Nissi Beach is lined with seafront cafes and nightspots, while Makronissos Beach is known for its clear waters and vivid sunsets. Rugged Cape Greco offers hiking trails and dune-buggy rides. Boat tours of the area’s sea caves sail from Konnos Bay.
