activities for older children

by alisson6011

I have two children, one girl aged 14 and a boy aged 11. My questions are:
1) How safe is Cyprus for children?
2) What is there for children to do (apart from the waterpark, which looks fantastic!)

Cyprus is perfectly safe for children of that age as long as you follow safety guidelines like any other place.
If you are a beach lover then can highly recommend "Fig Tree Bay" which is in Protaras close by to AN.
It has a special area of safety shallowish waters.
The waterpark is very popular,other than this don't know what else to suggest but look out for posters with more experience dealing with children

Cyprus has mostly shallow waters especially those in Larnaca, Agia Napa, and Protaras. There are some spots in Paphos also so don't worry at all for this.

Most hotels have whole-day programmes that can keep your children busy (if you are planning to stay at a hotel).
At the age of 11 and 14...wow all the time they will demand to be out. They can walk,hire a bicycle and see the round area. There are special bicycle paths in Larnaca and Aghia Napa, but I am sure there are everywhere. I have not mentioned waterparks! There is a Camel Park very interesting for children

and also there is DYPOTAMOS DONKEY FARM check this on my Larnaca District
tips. It is very interesting and believe me not only the children but also you will love that day out!
Let me know if you need more help.

Travel Tips for Ayia Napa

Agia Napa as a hotspot

by globetrott

Agia Napa seems to be a hotspot for all sorts of parties, crimes and what-ever you might read here on VT in the warning-tips, BUT I came during the day and just spent some time there at the monastery without having any trouble of that kind.
On the other side I could also see the big number of restaurants, bars and all sorts of amusement-places there in the middle of the town, right next to this monastery and can imagine that such a place is also of various dangers as soon as people get drunk, in the combination of the heat etc. I read that its mostly Scandinavian and british tourists there, and the alcohol is also cheaper in Agia Napa than in their homeplaces, thats mostly a reason for getting into problems of all sorts !

The Ancient Necropolis

by cheekymarieh

Just off Macronossis Beach you can find the ancient Necropolis. Here lies some ancient tombs from times long before the club scene hit Ayia Napa. It's worth wandering off Macronossis Beach to see it ... but just for 5 minutes or so.

Beaches

by zizkov

There are a number of beaches in the Ayia Napa area, though none actually by the resort centre. The most famous is Nissi Bay, with its island and sunsets. All have shallow water for quite a distance out, watersports, some are Blue Flag beaches with lifeguards.

Nearest to my apts was the Makronissos beach (just by the Dome Hotel). Smallish beach with coarser sand, but seemed to have more fish so good for snorkelling. On the headland next to this are a number of Roman burial chambers to view.

Ayia Napa - beach and boogie!

"Ayia Napa - the party capital of Cyprus"

In June 2002 my friend and I jumped on a last-minute flight to Cyprus. We didn't know which hotel we'd be staying at, but we were open-minded and prepared for anything. The flight took about 5 hours from Oslo and we were quite excited and nervous when we arrived as we had no idea if we were staying in the peaceful Fig Tree Bay or in crazy Ayia Napa. The airport was packed with tourists eager to get out of there and out in the sun. We found out we were staying at the Maria Apartements in Ayia Napa. It was in the middle of the town, right next to the bars and clubs. It was better than expected, large apartement with spacey rooms. Everything OK. We had a balcony as well and we could see the ocean in the horizon. All in all, I think we were quite lucky with our hotel and location, we were never bothered by music or noises, despite being so close to the core of it all. The pool was nice as well.. even though we were staying in another building and had to cross the street to get there.

When we went clubbing we kind of went everywhere.. Ambassaden was a pub-like bar with cool new commercial music where they had great drink offers and we also got discount tickets or free tickets for clubs when we bought something. We bought 1 drink and got 4 free shots.. it was crazy. The drinks taste horrible.. I remember with disgust a watery pina colada with cream. Beer is a much better choice! Though more expensive (cheap in the stores though). We also tried Black&White, a club that played new and classic r&b and hiphop. Carwash had a 70s/80s theme. Caste Club was huge, shaped like a fortress/castele and with space for up to 3500 people. We went there early in thhe season so it was quite empty, but I think it could be quite an experience in the peak of the season. They had different sections playing different kinds of music. Among Scandinavians Grabbarna Grus and VIPS were popular. Grabbarna Grus had a stone age/jungle theme with animal-pillows, stone tables/chairs, and live entertainment such as dancers. The music was a mix of commercial pop/dance and Scandinavian songs. They had the best drinks on the island and the place was packed. When it was closing time people moved on to the club VIPS where they had foam and popcorn parties. They played house/trance and r&b/hiphop. Clubs and bars change every year, so it's ahrd to make recommendations. But you'll have lots of choices!

"Fantastic beaches"

Nissi Beach is amazing. A long white silky sandy beach and perfect turquoise crystal-clear blue water, it's paradise. Nissi Beach is a partyspot as well, loud music and lots of young people. The food served at the diner/cafe was crappy and expensive, stay away! The sun is burning hot, so be careful! We got burned bad! We had to walk for 20 minutes or so to get to Nissi Beach, it's a shame you have to choose wether to stay near the beach or near the town.

"Not exactly a culinary experience"

We tried to find descent restaurants during our holiday, but the food was overpriced and tasteless.. We did enjoy a better meal at a restaurant in the middle of the 'piazza' in the bar/clubbing-area. Tasty steak! But apart from this overpriced meal, the best value was found at McDonald's and Pizza Hut. Prices are quite high.. alcohol is expensive, clothes too..and food. You also have to pay an entrance fee at many of the clubs as well. A local popsicle was priced $3 at Nissi Beach.. Be prepared and if everything else fails.. head to Mickey D's.
