Few visitors to Ayia Napa realise it used to be a quiet fishing village. Now, Ayia Napa is a party resort, and if you are into clubbing and are looking for a good time, holidays in Ayia Napa will not disappoint. Its celebratory atmosphere is unbelievable and young people flock to this Cypriot resort from all over Europe during the summer. However, there is more to holidays in Ayia Napa than just the bars and nightclubs, and you don’t have to be a young clubber to enjoy yourself, either. Package holidays in Ayia Napa are suitable for families, with plenty to see and do for everyone.
There is no getting away from the fact that Ayia Napa is a party town. With dozens of bars and clubs, it has some of the best nightlife in Europe. There is also plenty to do during the day. The beaches are beautifully maintained and consist of soft golden sands and the waters are warm. Plenty of watersports and activities are on offer, but for those wanting to get away from the crowds, the nearby resort of Protaras is quieter and better suited to families but has an equally stunning beach. For sightseeing, the Venetian monastery is worth a look, while some package holiday deals include excursions to Agia Thekla, famous for its beaches, and the ancient city of Larnaca.
If you are a foodie, you can do a lot worse than booking package holidays in Ayia Napa. Cyprus cuisine is among the best and healthiest in the world, and there is no shortage of great restaurants. Most of the hotels have a wide selection of Cypriot fare, and being a party town you are never far away from a snack bar or fast food restaurant. A trip to the harbour will yield some great seafood restaurants, while Protaras has plenty of family friendly places to eat.
