Synonymous with foam parties, firewater and all-night clubbing, cheap holidays to Ayia Napa connect you to the hub of nightlife on Cyprus. However, this south-eastern resort offers much more than just happy hour and hangovers. It's brimming with beaches and watersports, plus has a waterpark, coral reef diving and bungee jumping opportunities.
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.
