Ayia Napa

Though Ayia Napa boasts archaeological sites and the largest water park in Europe, the city is best known as a party hub.
You've now added Larnaka Salt Lake to your itinerary. You'll get in some beach time at Nissi Beach and Konnos Bay. Step off the beaten path and head to Landa Beach and Ayia Napa Monastery. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Fig Tree Bay, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take some stellar pictures from Cape Greco National Forest Park, and explore the activities along Blue Lagoon.

To find ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Ayia Napa trip itinerary site.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Ayia Napa is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Jeddah to Ayia Napa. Traveling from Jeddah in May, expect Ayia Napa to be slightly colder, temps between 31°C and 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to go by car to Kyrenia.

From sandy beaches to stone castles, and from bustling nightclubs to romantic tavernas, Cyprus is the perfect destination for those who seek a complete Mediterranean experience. Many civilizations have left their mark on the island's long and vibrant history, and consequently its customs, cuisine, and architecture. Beyond the divide between the predominantly Greek south and Turkish north, throughout the island you'll recognize Venetian, Genoese, British, and Middle Eastern influences. Of course, the main attraction that draws tourists from all over the world is the sunny coast, dotted with historical cities and fully equipped beaches. There is also a selection of peaceful villages, both inland and by the sea, where those looking for a more secluded holiday can retreat. A visit to the country's capital Nicosia, with its vibrant art and culture scene and numerous sightseeing opportunities, is definitely worth adding to your itinerary wherever you're staying.
