Cyprus has something to offer for visitors of all backgrounds and the island is full of culture and history. There are many places to visit to experience the rich traditions of the local people and explore the diverse beauty of the island.
The main attraction for both Ayia Napa and Protaras is most definitely the spectacular beaches with soft golden sand and clear turquoise waters. For a day of total relaxation, visit one of the smaller beaches such as Pernera beach or Green Bay in Protaras, which are both great for snorkeling and swimming. For a fun day out, a visit to Nissi Beach is a must, where you can enjoy a beach party and dance until the sun goes down, whilst enjoying the spectacular scenery.
Aside from all the fun, Ayia Napa and Protaras are also full of history, culture and beautiful scenery. Ayia Napa has a 14th century monastery, an ancient aqueduct, a sea museum and many churches.
Visit the sea caves and watch swimmers dive into the sea, or spend a day walking or cycling at the Cape Greco national forest park area.
During the tourist season, various festivals are organized which reflect the customs and the traditions of the local people as well as the historic, cultural and agricultural practices of the region as a whole. Sample traditional sweets and drinks and enjoy the local music and dancing.
With such a range of places to see and explore, it’s no surprise that visitors find themselves returning to Cyprus time and time again.
