Beaches - Ayia Napa Harbour
Agia Napa Harbour
The Agia Napa Harbour has had a complete facelift renovation, making it one of the three key landmarks of Agia Napa which also includes the Monastery and Cape Greco. Colourful and typically picturesque the Harbour is currently building an open - air theatre, fountains and cobble stoned pathways with quaint cafes and restaurants that overlook the Mediterranean. Fishing boats and fishermen dot the landscape with a quiet, restful atmosphere that bathes the mind and the spirit.
Agia Napa Harbour is also the venue for celebration and festivity throughout the year, especially during Kataclysmos in June when folk music, performers, dancers and fireworks are the usual fare for tourists and locals alike. A time of fun and laughter for all, the harbour is a charming romantic background for these festivities. The Agia Napa Harbour is a great place to enjoy lunch or dinner and bask in the sun or moonlight.
