A guide for first-time visitors to Ayia Napa

Whether you're a visitor or a resident, there's plenty to see and do in Ayia Napa. With its many beaches and a bustling nightlife, you'll be hard pressed to find a dull moment in this Mediterranean resort town.

Makronissos Tombs

Located in Ayia Napa, Cyprus, the Makronissos Tombs are the remains of a Hellenistic and Roman period burial site. The necropolis contains 19 tombs, each carved in stone slabs.

The tombs are rectangular in shape and feature a simple chamber and a rectangular trench in the middle. The entrances are carved in the rock and each has a large plate that closes the chamber. There are also three benches at each side of the chamber.

Recent studies have indicated that the quarry operation has caused some damage to the tombs. A small ancient sanctuary has been found to the east of the burial grounds.

The excavations in the area were carried out between 1989 and 1990 and sponsored by the Ayia Napa Municipality. There have been few other traces of settlement in the area, but the necropolis testifies to the existence of an ancient settlement in the region.

The necropolis is believed to have been abandoned in the 7th century after the ravages of Arab raids. The tombs are considered to be part of the ancient Greek culture of Ayia Napa.

The best way to experience the town is to take a guided tour of the area. The guided tour will show you the major sights, including the Venetian-era monastery, the Ghost Town, Othello Castle, and more. During the tour, you'll also visit a local beach. For a more unique experience, you can opt to dive in the nearby sea caves.

Visiting the Museum of Underwater Sculpture is an activity that should be on your list of things to do. This family-run business has over 93 organic sculptures created from fish and other local materials. It's a truly unique snorkeling experience in Cyprus, and you'll even have the chance to swim in its waters.

Similarly, the Ayia Napa Water Park is Europe's largest waterpark, with lots of fun things to do. There are Doric columns, an ancient Greek theme, and a number of other attractions to keep you occupied. There are also quieter places to escape the crowds.

In addition to these tours, you can also book a private excursion that's tailored to your group's needs. In this case, you'll have your own personal guide.
