Preparing your trip to Ayia Napa: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. The best time to visit the resort is in summer. There are several national holidays and festivals during this time of a year.
2. Many parts of the city, the center in particular, are pedestrian zones. Rather than renting a car, we suggest renting a bicycle – this is the most common form of transport.
3. Tips are already included in the total amount of the bill in most large restaurants. As a rule, the amount of tips is no more than 10%.
4. Lunch breaks are quite long in vast majority of governmental offices and shops and usually last from 13:00 to 15:00. On some days of a week shopping centers can work only until lunch, so shopping is better to be done in the morning.
5. Pottery remains the most popular souvenir. Liopetri village is also famous for beautiful woven baskets and other wooden decorations for home. Copyright
6. Families with children should not forget to visit Marine Park. The entrance for children under 12 years is free.
7. Bus remains the best way to travel the city. Taxis can be stopped on any street, or ordered to a hotel by telephone. Day tariffs are applied until 20:30; if you order a taxi later, you will have to pay almost twice more.
Local people are emotional, friendly, hospitable, and religious people. They are very responsive, and always ready to help, so do not hesitate to ask them for any kind of assistance. On the … Open
8. Only people aged 25 or older with a driving license received at least two year ago are allowed to rent a car. Some particular rental offices provide car rental to drivers aged 18 or older, but rates in such offices are much higher.
9. The majority of the beaches in the resort are free. As a rule, fees are charged for beach equipment only - umbrellas, sunbeds and sports equipment.
10. Fans of comfortable rest should not select 4 - 5 star hotels only. Even mid-priced hotels provide a wide range of additional services.

What to visit being in Ayia Napa - unique sights


From the series “The Most Impressive Abandoned Cities on the Planet”
Those hopes have not been realised. Until today Varosha remains a disputed territory, in addition, part of the town is still occupied by a Turkish military base. As mentioned above the town is a closed territory prohibited from entering. Military men are regularly patrolling the streets, but that does not seem to bother curious tourists. The empty coast of the resort looks especially interesting. There have survived umbrellas and lounges from more than forty years ago. One can see the remaining wooden terraces of restaurants and furnished rest areas. … Read further


From the series “Abandoned Places of the Earth with Distinct Marks of Civilization”
Over the years, the city was completely looted. Almost all the buildings on its territory can not be reversed. An access to the city is strictly prohibited and may be life-threatening, because military forces are constantly watching the disputed territory. Modern travelers have an opportunity to admire the town only from behind the barbed wire. Famagusta is quite a big city. The first mention of it dates back to 3 century BC. Once, there was a small village of fishermen. Its golden age occurred in the period from 1960 to 1970. … Read further
