Map of Cyprus
Agia Napa/Protaras

No longer a quiet fishing village, the Agia Napa/Protaras area has become a haven for young single and married holiday makers.

Napa (as it is affectionately known) attracts clubbers from all over Europe and beyond who like nothing better than partying through the night at one of the many lively venues.

Thrill seekers are catered for with heart-stopping fairground rides, bungee jumping and helicopter rides. The beaches offer many varied waters ports such as parasailing, diving and jet skins, while Water world Water Park is considered one of the best in Europe. Off season, the area is much quieter but there’s still plenty to do. The rugged Cavo Greko area offers excellent views and cycling and hiking tours make the most of the surrounding countryside.

Places to Visit

Agia Napa Monastery

The former fisherman’s village has a Venetian monastery, built in the Gothic style. The 16th century church is hewn from rock and courtyard features a 16th century marble fountain. The sycamore tree near the south gate is said to be 600 years old. Since 1978, the complex has been used as an ecumenical centre.

A monolith is the western part of Agia Napa. The middle of this pillar has a hole and it is said that anyone suffering from ill health will be cured if passed through the hole.
