Nissi Bay Holidays

GENERAL

Introduction

Holidays to Nissi Bay inevitably focus on the beautifully long and sandy beach, where you feel like you're walking on air. Situated just next door to Ayia Napa, on the southeast corner of the island of Cyprus, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Nissi Bay is as loud and out-there as its sister resort, but it's not. While it's still a popular choice for holidaymakers, it's much quieter than Ayia Napa and attracts a more subdued crowd. It's easy to see why the resort's white sands have been named one of the world's top ten beaches. The resort has its own desert island, within swimming distance away, while the watersports that are available during the day will keep any water babies satisfied. As darkness falls, there's a great selection of restaurants which will occupy your evenings, while a handful of bars and clubs will help to keep revellers happy after sundown. Order yourself some meze and immerse yourself in the local Greek lifestyle, or party the night away at one of the clubs or local beach parties ' the choice is yours! With the island's party capital just a few minutes away, Nissi Bay holidays can be as busy or as relaxing as you like.

Places to Go

WaterWorld Europe's largest Greek-themed waterpark is on your doorstep with a stay in Nissi Bay. Located just five minutes away, there are 18 rides to choose from at WaterWorld that will keep people of all ages smiling from ear to ear. From the white-knuckle Apollo's Plunge to the Trojan Adventure playground for the little ones, this action-packed waterpark appeals to everyone. Famagusta Located 45 minutes away, the town of Famagusta is almost an open air museum, largely because of the vast array of historic sites that can be found within its limits. Once upon a time, it was home to a whopping 365 churches but nowadays you can mosey around the Byzantine basilicas, medieval churches and Othello's Castle and immerse yourself in the history of this fascinating place. Varosha While you're on your visit to Famagusta, head over to Varosha which is a modern-day ghost town. It was abandoned during the 1970s as a result of the 1974 Turkish invasion and has remained frozen in time ever since.

Things to Do

Whizz Around the Go Kart Track Whether you fancy being part of the competition yourself, or you'd prefer to sit on the side lines and watch as your kids whizz round the track like wannabe Schumachers, Nissi Bay is home to two go-kart tracks that will keep youngsters - and the young at heart - busy for ages. Take the Black Pearl to Cape Greco This boat trip is an incredible way of seeing the area, helping you to immerse yourself in the breathtaking surroundings. The caves of Cape Greco are dramatic and well-worth a visit. Kids will love the idea that they're sailing on a pirate ship and pretending that they're Jack Sparrow! Wander the Roman Ruins of Salamis As Cyprus' answer to Pompeii, you can imagine the archaeological delights that are in store. An amphitheatre and an ancient gymnasium are just two of the sights that will mesmerise you on your visit, which will transport you back to Roman times.
