Ayia Napa is situated in the outskirts of Larnaka and has developed into an attractive seaside resort. This was originally a fishing village with its charming medieval monastery, dedicated to the Holy ‘Our Lady of the Forests”, from which the name is derived and which stands in the middle of the village. From being a tiny, sleepy town only a few years ago, Ayia Napa is today one of the most pulsating, vibrant and popular holiday destinations in Europe, especially known for the fantastic beaches and lively nightlife. The long summer season is ideal for sun worshippers and sea sport lovers, while winter is becoming a haven for nature lovers. Protaras and Cape Greco, adjacent to Ayia Napa, provide an untamed natural beauty, offering a combination of endless possibilities. There are many “to do” things while in this region of the island; either cruising, shopping, enjoying delicious seafood specialities, sunbathing at one of the many white sandy beaches, hiking, biking or walking through nature’s trails of wild flowers and fauna. In the afternoons strolling around trendy cafés, pubs and clubs, meeting with the locals, who talk candidly and open – heartedly about their village, is a most relaxing pastime.
