1. Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa is a great resort town. This Mediterranean town is full of wonderful and white sandy beaches. And according to Maria, it’s a place to die for.

Makronissos beach, Nissi beach… These beaches are popular for their wonderful seafront restaurants and night clubs. If you are the romantic kind, then you and your special someone will enjoy the sunsets at Makronissos beach, the clear waters, and white sand.

Now if you are a person that loves history, then head on to the infamous storied Venetian-era Ayia Napa Monastery.  And the plus is the bars and clubs that surround it.

Cape Greco National park is also great for nature lovers. Other things you can do here is to go hiking and boat tours.
As per Maria’s review, this is a place that most non Cyprus residents will enjoy. From snorkeling to clubbing, you will get it all here.
