A quiet customer
Believe it or not, there’s a quiet side to Ayia Napa – and it’s called Nissi Beach. Set on the southeast corner of Cyprus, this low-key resort within a resort is all about an A-list stretch of sand with a pile of bars and restaurants thrown in to keep it company. And if that’s not enough, you’ve got a whopper of a waterpark right on your doorstep as well.
Blue Flag beach
The white sand stretch here is one of the world’s Top Ten beaches. It gently shelves into the crystal-clear water and stays shallow a good way out, so it’s great for paddling. The place is a 2-parter – there’s one end that’s nice and quiet, or you’ve got a busier spot that deals in full-on beach parties. Either way, you'll get a deluge of watersports to play with.
A family-friendly resort
Nissi Beach plays to families. In the resort itself you’ve got 2 go-kart tracks and a clutch of restaurants that serve up kids’ menus and play areas. From the harbour, you can take the Black Pearl pirate ship for a trip to the dramatic caves of Cape Greco. And then there’s Europe’s biggest Greek-themed waterpark, WaterWorld, literally 5 minutes up the road.
Close to Famagusta
Forty-five minutes’ drive and you’re at Famagusta. Once home to 365 churches, the town is like an open-air museum, with Byzantine basilicas, Medieval cathedrals and a citadel called Othello’s Castle. North of here, you can wander around the Roman ruins of Salamis, Cyprus’ answer to Pompeii. And you can also take a peek at the ghost town of Varosha – abandoned in the Seventies, it’s been frozen in time.
