    This is the largest medieval building in Famagusta. It was originally constructed as St. Nicholas Cathedral and its construction took almost 100 years (1300-1400 AD). Its architecture is obviously Gothic and many claim that it closely resembles the Cathedral of Rheims in Paris. When the Ottoman Turks captured Famagusta from the Venetians in 1571,...

    Ayia Napa Things to Do

    Though it is mainly a show for kids but I couldn't resist the pirate ship, always admired it. The ship is a theme for Black Pearl (from pirates of the caribbean Movie) and the crew are dressed like the pirates in the movie. They sail with sounds effects and do a little show for the kids followed by a stop for swimming, then another show then...

    The ruins of the St. George Church still stand and can be seen in the Old City Walls of Famagusta. This church was said to be built in opposition to the nearby Latin, Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Nicholas. The central part of the church had a large dome which today does not exist due to Ottoman attacks in 1571 where it was demolished. Some of...

  • Bungee Jumping

    Ayia Napa Things to Do

    A superb ride firing you up into the air at a terrific speed with a force of 4G and to a height of about 150 feet. You end up spinning high above Ayia Napa. It's worth buying the video to see the look on your faces and so that it is not on general display for others to see!!! From the top you get some excellent views of the resort. You can see for...

  • Cape Greco

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Ayia Napa Things to Do

    Cape Greco - the south-east-end of Cyprus is a side-step of just a few km from Agia Napa, you have to drive a narrow road to its almost very end untill you get to a gate that will keep you out of the very tip of the cape, obviously it is used by the military. Park your car there and take a walk to the coast, that consists of heavy rocks there. This...

  • Sea Caves

    Ayia Napa Things to Do

    Beautiful nature is one of the biggest assets of Ayia Napa. The Sea Caves are just 2-3 km from the city center. a paved walking path goes along the shore, and then slightly off shore, because the shore is very rocky and sharp. so if you decide to walk along the shore to see more caves, make sure to have a pair of comfortable shoes with thick sole....

  • Agia Thekla

    Ayia Napa Things to Do

    Agia Thekla has a great interior and its doors are open all day for free entrance and in order to take a look around and taking photos is no problem at all. It was interesting for me to see that in many churches you will find icons partly covered by shawls like in my 3rd photo here.

  • Famagusta

    We travelled from Salamis the few miles into Famagusta, where we spent quite some time driving around trying to get our bearings and finding somewhere to park, as a result of which we didn't have long to explore it. However, we briefly went in to Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, formerly St. Nicholas Cathedral.From Famagusta we took the main road back to...

  • Salamis

    We visited Salamis on our return journey from the Karpas Peninsula, and spent a couple of hours there, although we could have spent much longer if we had had the time, as it occupies a huge area.According to legend, it was founded by Teukros, a Trojan warrior mentioned in Homer's Ilead. At one time, 120,000 people lived there, but it was abandoned...

    It is a superb beach and perfect swimming conditions. It is gently shelving which makes it an ideal spot to take children. In summer it is less crowded than Fig Tree Bay. On the beach there are some water sport facilities offering parascending, water skiing, canoeing and jetskis.The bay itsself lies at the bottom of some steep cliffs. If you get...

  • Viewpoint

    Visit the Famagusta view point in Dherynia which gives perfect views of the ghost town of Varosha (the former tourist area of Famagusta which has now been left to decay). The best viewpoint if probably Anita's which is closest to the actual green line.

  • Take A Boat Trip

    There are many opportunities to take a boat trip along the coast line. Two of the better ones that I have had have been from Ayia Napa with the party cruise ship - that takes from about 11am until 4pm and passes the sea caves, Cavo Greco, Protaras and up to the green line area. From there you can have a view of Famagusta. It costs around £6 and you...
