Makronisos Village

You’ll quickly feel at home at friendly Makronisos Village. As the name suggests, it’s laid out like a village, with airy apartments and suites housed in villa accommodation. The apartments come with a kitchenette, but if you don’t want to cook, there are three on-site restaurants, serving Greek and international meals. There’s also a sauna room and massage room, if you’re looking to properly unwind. However, the social centre of the hotel is the large swimming pool in the landscaped gardens. It’s a 10-minute walk to Nissi Beach, and the resort centre of Ayia Napa takes the same time by taxi.

Overview of Larnaca

Everyone loves trips to the Greek Islands, and holidays to Cyprus are particularly popular, especially in the Larnaca region. Party-goers flock to Ayia Napa, a beachside resort renowned for its buzzing nightlife, while Larnaca is renowned for its beautiful Blue Flag beaches. But it’s still possible to seek out secluded coves and unspoilt villages, renowned for their Cypriot cuisine. Get the best of both worlds with a stay at Makronisos Village, situated in a quiet area of Ayia Napa.

Things to do in Larnaca

Head to Nissi Beach to soak up the sun. This white ribbon of sand gets lively in summer months.

There are plenty of clubs where you can dance until the early hours, but you’ll also find chic cocktail bars and even kid-friendly tribute acts.If you’re interested in the region’s culture, head further into Larnaca. Stroll around the pretty old town and marvel at the Byzantine architecture and unique museums. You can stop for refreshments in one of the traditional tavernas. Holidays to Larnaca offer everything you could want from a memorable beach break. You’ll enjoy the relaxing days on the sand and the contrasting lively nights living it up in Ayia Napa. It’s no wonder that this is such a popular summer holiday destination.

Resort Summary

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.
