Swimming in Ayia Napa - Best Spots Suggested by a Local

Ayia Napa is one of the largest tourist resorts in Cyprus with crystal clear waters and sandy beaches. It’s a great getaway for either going on a family vacation, or for a beach holiday with friends. Since Ayia Napa is also known for its amazing beaches, you can enjoy swimming and all kinds of beach sports and activities. 

Between June and August, when the temperature reaches up to 40 degrees,  is the ideal time of the year to visit this Mediterranean resort town on the southeast coast of Cyprus. 

Where to go?

Nissi Beach  

Show your swimming abilities in Nissi Beach, which is probably the most famous beach in Cyprus. The beach is 500 meters long and it’s known for its crystal clear waters. The amazing thing is that the waters are very shallow and you can enjoy water-sports such as windsurfing, paddle boating, and even bungee jumping! Another fascinating thing about Nissi Beach is that near the beach there is a small islet where visitors can go and explore it. That’s how the beach took its name from as well – from the Greek word for “island” which is “Νησί”.

Makronissos Beach 

It’s located 5km west of Ayia Napa’s center. It’s a combination of three bays. They are connected through different directions on the west, southwest, and southeast. The beach offers various water sports such as water skiing, paddle boating, and diving. And of course you can enjoy some exploration in the archaeological area of Makronissos, Necropolis. In overall, it is an ideal place for families, and people who enjoy a clean beach with clear waters. 

Cavo Greco

Another popular tourist attraction, which is in the middle of Ayia Napa and Protaras, and offers an amazing landscaping view and a wide range of activities like swimming, diving, fishing e.t.c. You can also visit the underwater caves and dive in!
