Ayia Napa(or Agia Napa), located southeast of the islands coast, is reputable for its tourist resort all over Europe. It is one of Cyprus's most popular beach resorts. Holidays in Ayia Napa really do have the best of both worlds. On the one hand, the resort's a buzzing party paradise, bustling with cutting-edge clubs and trendy bars. On the other hand though, there's a more tranquil side to this once fishing village. Beautiful snow-white beaches, narrow cobbled streets and serene shady squares all show off a different side to Ayia Napa holidays. Take a look at the medieval monastery and stroll around its gorgeous gardens. Flop down onto the silvery sands of Nissi Beach were the waters sparkle like crystal. Or pull up a chair at a pavement cafe in the atmospheric main square and watch the world go by. The main centre of the district is Paralimni, 3 miles north of Ayia Napa itself. East of the village is Protaras, known for its lively night-life and party scene.
Other Activities: Waterworld Waterpark(the largest waterpark in Europe) is only 3km from the property
Golf: The nearest commercial course is The Korineum couse over at Esentepe to the east of Kyrenia. Approx 90kms from Paralimni. A very nice course and not expensive by Cyprus standards. Please note that its is on the north side of the island.
There are currently 4 other commercial grass courses in the south. They are Vikla some 130kms from Paralimni,
Aphrodite Hills 160kms away and Secret Valley 165 kms from here and Minthis Hills at Tsada approx 210kms up the road.
In addition there are browns and astorturf courses on the military bases at Ayios Nikolaos, Dhekelia, Nicosia, Episkopi and Akrotiri. These are not open to the general public however it is possible to go an play at Ayios Nikolaos (Vrysollues) without much of a problem, as the course is not actually on the restricted area of the camp. Its a fairly simple 9 hole,played twice, course with sand browns. You will need flat and heelless footwear to pay and play.
In addition there is a commercial driving range at j21 near Paraklissia about 110kms down the motorway.
Ski: Limited ski season operates in Trodos mountains during winter.
