Ayia Napa is much bigger than many other holiday resorts and is quite spread out. Starting from the west as you approach Ayia Napa you first come to Ayia Thekla which is a huge development of villas, a mix of residential and holiday lettings. Ayia Thekla has it's own beach as well as lots of smaller secluded spots of sand along the seafront. Next is Makronissos which is where you'll find Waterworld Waterpark, Makronissos Beach club and several good standard hotels and apartments. This area is becoming more upmarket and in future years the swanky Ayia Napa Marina will be located between here and Ayia Thekla. Makronissos has 3 gorgeous beaches and just next door is equally lovely Landa Beach.
Nissi Beach with its twin bays is the most popular beach in the town and is where most people head to during the day. It is mainly higher standard hotels in this area and it is also a top destination for couples getting married abroad. As we head long Nissi Avenue we next come to Sandy Bay which is a lovely sheltered cove. The whole area from Makronissos to Sandy Bay is often now called Nissi Bay and is almost a mini resort in itself with a selection of family friendly bars and restaurants away from the bustle of the town so families often choose this area for holidays.
A couple of kilometres east along Nissi Avenue, past some shops and restaurants, we come to the town centre. This is where the majority of the bars and all the clubs are located. It's also where you'll find most of the shops, the harbour and lots of things to do. Most of the accommodation in the town centre is self catering accommodation and a lot of it is fairly basic as it serves the needs of the clubbing crowd.
Heading from the harbour eastwards but still within walking distance of the town centre is Grecian Bay, a long sweep of sand with several high standard hotels, a selection of restaurants and a more upmarket feel to it. As we head out of town to the east we reach Cape Greco, which is a national park. Here you will find the gorgeous pine fringed beach of Konnos Bay. Cape Greco is popular with hikers, walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts. It's also a popular spot for diving and fishing and is the best place to watch the sunrise.

In September, the pace slows a little and it's a lovely chilled out month. The heat loses it's ferocity a little as temperatures drop back to around 30 degrees. The age groups start to creep up a little again as Ayia Napa gets a little calmer and heading into late September and October some bars and clubs will close for the season.
By late October virtually all of Ayia Napa is closed with just a few venues entertaining the small amount of tourists who arrive at this time of year. From November onwards older people from northern Europe start to arrive for their long winter holidays and enjoy the mild winter weather. A handful of bars stay open mostly at weekends during the winter months with several clubs opening just for the Christmas season.
