Agia Napa, Cyprus, is a vibrant beach town in the southeast of Cyprus. The coastal town has a population of roughly two thousand seven hundred and it is well known for its excellent nightlife. During the summer, the number of inhabitants is a lot higher, since tourism is a big economic factor for the beach town. In the next couple of years, Agia Napa wants to change its reputation and increase the quality of the facilities as well as hotels. According to the authorities, exaggerated party tourism including a young wild crowd has too many negative effects on the reputation of Agia Napa. However, the beach town has a lot more to offer than just partying. If you want, you can just relax on the beach, try out the numerous outdoor activities, or visit some cultural sights. If you want to see this vibrant holiday place, check out flights to Larnaca Airport. A taxi ride from the international airport takes around forty-five minutes.
The coastal town has a huge amount of different guesthouses, hotels, and holiday apartments. You can choose from really expensive luxury resorts to inexpensive, simple guesthouses. However, the classic hostel industry is not very developed here, and you won't find many Agia Napa, Cyprus hostels because most tourists prefer more expensive hotels. The facilities of your Agia Napa, Cyprus hostel are rather clean but a bit old-fashioned.
Agia Napa offers twenty-seven beaches with crystal clear waters and fine, white sand. Fourteen of them got the Blue Flag award for their excellent quality and standards. Thanks to the geographical location, you get lots of sunshine all year round. In fact, the summer lasts around eight months a year and the average annual temperature is around twenty-four degrees Celsius. Check out the Sea Caves and the Sculpture Park, covering an area of over twenty-thousand square metres. The park is perfect for some beautiful pictures. If you like culture, do not miss Ayia Napa Medieval Monastery. The lovely monastery is located in the middle of the town and was built in the sixteenth century.
