If you would like to see more of the island but do not want to venture too far out, then there is plenty to see nearby. Protaras and Ayia Napa have churches and museums to visit and Cape Greco is a must see for those keen on nature and photography. A little further out you will find the villages of Dheryneia and Liopetri showing how times and traditions have changed over the years, developing Cyprus to what it is today.

Prophet Elias Church

Venturing into the tourist area of Protaras, we come across the chapel of Prophet Elias. It is built on a granite hill with almost vertical sides. In order to reach the chapel, one has to climb a set of 153 stone-built steep stairs, but once you get there, the view is mesmerising and a very popular spot to watch the sunset. The church is even more spectacular when it is lit up at night.

Cape Greco

Cape Greco, a protected national park which offers you the chance to get in touch with nature. Hiking, cycling, fishing, bird watching and scuba diving are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed at Cape Greco. The crystal, clear waters invite scuba divers to explore the depths off the steep cliffs. The waters are very popular with deep-sea fisherman and snorkelers. Again, a popular spot for watching the sunset, the views from Cape Greco are truly mesmerising.

Ayia Napa Monastery

This charming medieval monastery, dedicated to ”Our Lady of the Forests”, stands in the middle of the village of Ayia Napa surrounded by a high wall. Both the village and the monastery take their name from the ancient Greek word for wooded valley “Napa”– a reference to the morphology of the area in the past. Built like a medieval castle around 1500 AD, Ayia Napa Monastery is the best known landmark of the village as well as of the surrounding area. The monastery is partly built underground and cut into the rock. The ancient sycamore tree in front of the south gate is believed to be over 600 years old.


Cultural Centre of Occupied Famagusta

The Occupied Famagusta Cultural Centre was built at the Deryneia Roadblock where all the anti-occupation demonstrations for Famagusta and our other occupied parts have been taking place since 1974. There is an observatory where visitors can borrow binoculars to see from a distance the beloved town. There are projections of films about Famagusta in the multivalent hall of the Centre. Both tourists but also locals, pupils of primary and secondary schools come in their hundreds to see the Centre. All information given to visitors can be found in different languages and is free of charge.

The Makronissos Tombs

Ayia Napa has one of the most interesting discoveries. In the area of Makronissos, discoveries of an ancient burial site were made. In 1989-90, Ayia Napa Municipality sponsored intensive excavations of the rock-cut tombs. Until today, 19 tombs have been excavated as well as a small sanctuary to the east and an ancient quarry next to the cemetery. The Makronissos Tombs can be visited daily and there is no admission charge.

Dherynia Folk Art Museum

The Deryneia Folk Art Museum is found in an old, traditional house at 2, Demetris Lipertis Street. The displays are organised in collaboration with the Cyprus Handicraft Service. The indoor and outdoor areas, as well as, the exhibitions with the different household items and farming tools show how functional the Cypriot, traditional house use to be. The presence of Mrs. Margarita and Mr. Varnavas Hadjiliassi give life to the place and are happy to give tours of the museum.

Liopetri Fishing Refuge

Liopetri has adapted from the small fishing village it use to be and now is a picturesque setting with natural beauty, deserted mines and wild plantation. The Liopetri river is used as a natural fishing bay by professional and amateur fishermen as well as small tourist boats because of its shape. Fishermen mend their nets during the daytime and in the evening venture out to see who can get the best catch.

Thalassa Museum

The Thalassa Municipal Museum is located at the centre of Agia Napa and it has the sea as a subject-matter. It is the first museum of its kind across the Mediterranean region with main principle to present to the audiences, the local and foreign visitors, the impact and the significance of the sea upon the history of the island. The exhibits of the museum cover a chronological span, from paleontological to historic periods until present times.

Agia Napa Sea Caves

The Ayia Napa Sea Caves can be found at Cape Greco. These caves have been formed due to the sea pounding the cliffs over millions of years. For those feeling adventurous and like exploring, you can climb down to sea level and walk along the caves. Some caves are so deep that you can go right in. For those that are keen photographers, this place is great for taking photos. With the different shapes in the landscape, you can be creative and experiment with your camera. This is one of the best places to catch the sunset.
