Ayia Napa is the main party town of Cyprus, but a good place to visit for a day out from Fig Tree Villa as it is only 40 mins down the main highway and has some beautiful beaches. It's quite large and spread out, but starting from the west as you approach Ayia Napa you will first come to Ayia Thekla which is just a huge development of villas, a mix of residential and holiday lettings. Next is Makronissos which is where you'll find Waterworld Waterpark, Makronissos Beach club and several good standard hotels and apartments. Makronissos has 3 gorgeous beaches and just next door is Landa Beach. Nissi Beach with its twin bays is the most popular beach in the town and it's where most young people head to during the day as there's lots of loud music and beach bars. It's a more downmarket version of Mackenzie beach, but mainly for the tourists. Along Nissi Avenue you will next come to Sandy Bay which is a lovely sheltered cove. The whole area from Makronissos to Sandy Bay is often now called Nissi Bay and is almost a mini resort in itself with a selection of family friendly bars and restaurants away from the bustle of the town so families often choose this area for holidays A couple of kilometres east along Nissi Avenue, past some shops and restaurants, you will come to the town centre. This is where the majority of the party bars and all the clubs are located. It's also where you'll find most of the shops, the harbour and lots of things to do. Most of the accommodation in the town centre is self catering accommodation and a lot of it is fairly basic as it serves the needs of the clubbing crowd. Heading from the harbour eastwards but still within walking distance of the town centre is Grecian Bay, a long sweep of sand with several high standard hotels, a selection of restaurants and a more upmarket feel to it. As we head out of town to the east we reach the stunning sea caves, popular for cliff diving and then on to Cape Greco, which is a national forest park. Here you will also find the gorgeous pine-fringed beach of Konnos Bay. Cape Greco is popular with hikers, walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts. It's also a popular spot for diving and fishing and is the best place to watch the sunrise. A few miles further on you will reach the holiday resort of Protaras. I prefer Ayia Napa out of the main season when it is quieter and you don't get hassled by touts trying to haul you into clubs, but it is a beautiful area to visit for a day out.
