Resorts for all sorts

The east coast of Cyprus is best-known for its clubbing capital, Ayia Napa. But there’s plenty here for families and couples too, from beautiful beaches to archaeological sites and unspoiled countryside. Foodies will be in heaven with the delicious kebabs or traditional mezes made up of a selection of light bites.

A bevy of beaches

The beaches along this stretch of the coast are golden-sanded beauties, many of them boasting Blue Flag status. The seas are warm, clear and calm, making them super safe for swimming. Many of the beaches are lined with restaurants, so you won’t have to travel far to fill rumbling tums.

After-hours fun

If you’re looking for a party, you’ll find it in Ayia Napa’s buzzing main square. There are hundreds of bars and clubs laying on everything from karaoke nights to world-famous DJs. Families won’t go bored either – the live shows along the main strip cater for audiences of all ages.
