Fun days and wild nights

Nightlife is undoubtedly the principal reason most people head off on Ayia Napa holidays, where activity centres on the main square. Though smaller than you might expect, the square is jam-packed with bars and clubs jostling for business, sometimes offering great promotional deals in the process. If you're looking for an alcohol-fuelled and hangover-punctuated holiday, you've come to the right place.

Having said that, there's plenty to see and do in Ayia Napa during the day. For starters, the eight-kilometre coast around these parts is home to 14 splendid beaches, each and every one of them accredited with Blue Flag status. You can hire watersport equipment at most of them. Under the water, there's a coral reef, and scuba-diving possibilities are second to none.

Staying on dry land – but still getting wet – adrenaline junkies can head to WaterWorld Themed Waterpark, an award-winning amusement park that's one of the biggest of its kind in Europe. Alternatively, there are bungee-jumping opportunities and plenty of inland tours to keep your days action-packed until the sun goes down and the volume comes up.

Blue skies, blue seas, blue flags

As a European certification of quality and cleanliness, you know what you're getting with a Blue Flag beach. Every single one of the 14 stretches of sand in and around Ayia Napa has achieved Blue Flag status, ensuring that a sunbathing session here will be up there with the best in the world.

Nissi Beach is perhaps the most crowded and it caters to the party crowd – offering foam parties, cheap cocktails and pumping tunes throughout the day and far into the night. One of the longest on the island, Harbour Beach is more geared towards families, with plenty of sunloungers, parasols and other facilities.

Deep-sea diving in the deep blue yonder

Though coral reefs have become something of a rarity in Europe, the Cypriot coast is one of the few places where you can still find them in abundance. Here, divers are treated to a rich array of colours and creatures, with an incredibly diverse ecosystem underneath the water off Ayia Napa. And one of the world's best diving sites centres on the Swedish ferry MS Zenobia, shipwrecked just off the coast in 1980 on her maiden voyage.

Those with a superstitious side can head to Cape Greco off the tip of the peninsula to see if they can see the fabled Leviathan who is reputed to lurk there – or simply take some stunning shots of the scenery.

Set your pulse a-racing

If you like your holidays full of adrenaline, Ayia Napa's Blue Flag beaches provide excellent places to try your hand at any number of high-octane watersports. They include windsurfing, jet-skiing, parasailing and wakeboarding. Staying with the water theme, the world-famous WaterWorld Themed Waterpark has an array of rides and attractions sure to thrill and delight visitors of all ages.

For the really adventurous, a trip to Ayia Napa wouldn't be complete without a death-defying bungee jump. At a dizzying height of 60 metres above Nissi Beach, you can let go of your inhibitions and face your fears as you leap into the void... If you dare.

Hit the dance floor

No guide to Ayia Napa would be complete without covering its nightlife. The party atmosphere that pervades the daylight hours comes to fever pitch once the sun has dipped beneath the horizon. With world-famous DJs regularly visiting the town's many clubs and discos, it's easy to see why ravers, movers and shakers from all over the world flock here all year round.

Quieter bars offer live music and karaoke or just places to sit and watch revellers go by. Or you could try a foam party, paint party, boat party or any other kind of party you can imagine.
