Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa

3.8
#1 of 193 in Outdoors in Cyprus
Get the party going at Nissi Beach, Cyprus's number one party spot. Stretching along 500 m (0.3 mi) of white sand seashore, the beach is considered one of the most exotic one on the island and it's been awarded the EU Blue Flag. The sea is shallow and crystal clear here, while the surrounding area is filled with palm trees and subtropical plants. You'll see a small islet just offshore, which you can access by foot, for a completely new view of Ayia Napa. Refrain, however, from joining the cliff jumpers at this spot. Put Nissi Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ayia Napa travel itinerary maker.

    This place is simply suitable for youngsters. The sea is not as clean as it used to be either. For youngsters and singles it's a perfect place to be!  more »

    Wonderful beach! In my opinion one of the most wonderful beaches in Europe. Especially the little island is amazing (if it's low tight it's connected).  more »

    Perhaps one of the best beaches of ayia napa, named the sea is nice but the beach is very crowded, there are a number of bars with live music and shiuma party, ideal for those who want to have fun, but if you love peace isn't ideal.
