About Ayia Napa

With a huge number of clubs, supported by some incredible pubs, bars and picture-perfect beaches, Ayia Napa is the 18-30 clubbing paradise. Napa used to be a small, quiet fishing village. Not anymore. Today it welcomes hardcore clubbers with open arms and has a fantastic, friendly and party atmosphere that is hard to match elsewhere. To help ensure you have a trouble free holiday experience check out the following information in our essential travel advice guide:

When to go to Ayia Napa?

Located in the far south of the Mediterranean, Cyprus spends the majority of the year soaking up the sun. The clubs start opening as early as April through to September, although the resort is at its liveliest during June, July and August. Due to these being the peak months, flight prices and accommodation tend to be more expensive during this period as well. If you want to save some money, the months of April, May and September will be cheaper periods to travel although they’ll also be slightly less busy.

Ayia Napa Weather

Cyprus has around 340 days of sunshine a year, so blue skies are a guarantee. Temperatures pick up as early as April, so it wouldn’t be unusual to see people down on the beach in their swimwear at Easter. During the main summer month’s temperatures are over 30 degrees and at times will be creeping towards the 40s.

Health and Safety

Before you head out to Cyprus, make sure you have adequate travel and medical insurance. Although it’s not a substitute for insurance, it is also a good idea to get yourself a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) before you head out to Ayia Napa. Touchwood it will stay put in your wallet or purse, but it entitles you to any medical treatment should it be necessary during your trip so don’t forget it when you’re packing... you never know what can happen on a night out! Worth noting that the EHIC will not cover you if you require ongoing medical treatment, so if you take medication long term, be sure to bring enough with you in case there are any unforeseen delays to your flight home.

Passports and Visas

You don’t need a visa to travel to Cyprus if you hold a British or European passport, but you will need a valid passport. Make sure that your passport is valid before you leave, and will remain valid for the duration of your stay, plus 6 months. If your holiday is coming to an end before you’re ready to return home, you are permitted to stay in Cyprus for up to three months. If you wanted to stay any longer, you would have to check entry requirements with the Republic of Cyprus High Commission in London.

Healthcare and Walk in Centres

In the unfortunate event of you falling ill on holiday, there are a number of places that you can seek medical help in Ayia Napa; for minor ailments you can use the chemist, and for more serious problems there are a number of medical centres. Saveco Health Centre is located just off Nissi Avenue, at the heart of Ayia Napa, and provides a 24 hour service to tourists and locals in the Ayia Napa area.

Police and Security

Helping you feel safe and secure whilst you’re away, there is a police station located in the middle of Ayia Napa. In the case of minor crimes, you can dial 22-808080 for assistance. In cases of emergency, dial the emergency number 112/999 or 1499 to be put directly through to police. A lot of the hotels in Napa have their own security guards, so should you need to report anything in or around your hotel, make sure you go to them. 

ATMs and Currency

If you are worried about bringing all your spending money in cash, do not fear; there are a number of other ways you can pay and protect your cash. You will find a number of ATMs in Napa, but before you use them, be sure to check with your bank how much they will charge you to withdraw. A number of clubs, bars and restaurants allow you to pay by card, however, not everywhere does, so be sure to have a combination of cash and card.  You can also use prepaid currency cards when you stay, which allow you to top up an amount before you leave, and budget your spending.
