Cyprus Beach Resorts

 

Ayia Napa


Ayia Napa is located southeast of the islands coast, its known all over Europe as one of the best party beach resort. Every summer this resort plays host to international DJs on a regular basis and this little village grows to over 10,000 tourists per day. 

The beaches are great, but the real reason people come here is for its nightlife.  The nightlife and entertainment suits all types of people. Ayia Napa is always busy and packed with clubs and pubs stretching along the mile long beach.  Two of the best clubs are Bedrock (with a Flintstones theme) and the Castle club. Protaras and Pernera resorts have good beaches, with cafes and beach bars. Other attractions in the area include water sports and rock climbing. Around Cape Gkreko, the coastline becomes indented with rocky coves and small sandy beaches, ideal for snorkeling and scuba-diving. For more information on Ayia Napa go to www.discoverayianapa.com


Limassol


The second-largest city in Cyprus, Limassol is the island’s main industrial centre and port. All along the beach there are resort style hotels and bars to cater to all package holiday tourists.

It is also the focus of Cyprus’ wine industry. In September, the town holds a wine festival, at which wine and food are served free. The city is an important tourist destination, and the most popular beach is called Dassoudi Beach, which has some lively bars and clubs along the water.

Paphos


Paphos is located on the west coast of Cyprus, 150km southwest of Nicossia. Pafos has been included in UNESCO’s list of World Cultural Heritage sites, and is rich in ancient sites, in particular a cluster of excavated Roman villas near the harbor. Among these are the House of Dionysos and the Villa of Theseus that contain superb mosaic floors, and the also Tombs of the Kings, which is a must.

The best beach on the island is called Coral Bay, which is located 10km north of Paphos. It has sandy beaches and plenty of water sports to keep you busy. If you are looking for something a bit different go to Paphos Aphrodite Water Park, which is perfect if you have kids with you. For more information go to www.aphroditewaterpark.com
