Agia Napa village

Located in the Ammochostos (Famagusta) district, the once-sleepy fishing village of Agia Napa is famous for its stunning coasts, as well as for its ranking as a top nightlife destination, known worldwide.

Home to some of the best beaches on the island, its strips vary from bustling to secluded, whilst the area also encompasses the Natural Forest Park of Cape Gkreko, which is especially beautiful with its coves, caves, rare flora and fauna and breathtaking views.

The heart of the village is its square where the Medieval monastery stands and is a tranquil landmark during the day, whilst in the evening the area is vibrant and energised when the bars and clubs come to life. The square is also the scene for many cultural events, including the Medieval Festival in October, the Children’s Festival & Agia Napa Kids Summer Festival, the International Festival in September and the important religious festival of the Feast of Panagia Virgin Mary on September 08.

The village’s sights of interest include: the Thalassa Municipal Museum of the sea; the Makronisos Archaeological site (with tombs dating back to Hellenistic and Roman periods); various sea caves (such as Palatiaand Korakas Bridge); the quaint fishing harbour, the International Sculpture Park and its adjacent Park of Mediterranean Plants, Cacti and Succulents; the old aqueduct; Lovers Bridge - with its love locks - and significant religious monuments such as the Agia Thekla and Agioi Anargyroi chapels.
