TOP 5 BOAT TRIPS IN AYIA NAPA
Every holiday to Ayia Napa needs a boat trip to make it complete and there are all different kinds of trips to suit all ages and energy levels. All boat trips from Ayia Napa will visit the Ayia Napa sea caves, and most will also take you on past dramatic Cape Greco to Konnos Bay and the Blue Lagoon. Some trips will go even further and cruise past Protaras and on to the Famagusta Viewpoint where you can see the ghost town of Varosha.
From Party Boats to Lazy day cruises and everything in between, here's our guide to the best boat trips in Ayia Napa.
1. Dolphin Boat Safari
The Dolphin Boat safari is a bit more exciting than your average Ayia Napa boat trip. With 3 powerful outboard engines, the boat is fast and small enough to get right up close to the sea caves and rock formations. The speediness of the boat allows you to go all the way to the Famagusta Viewpoint before heading out to sea in search of dolphins. Get More Info and Tickets

DRINKS PRICES IN AYIA NAPA
The busiest and most popular bars around the main square in Ayia Napa are a little more expensive with local drinks costing €3-€5. If it's before 11pm you often find many bars will have a buy one get one free offer, or free shots or some other deal on drinks. The later it gets in the night, the more expensive the drinks usually get as it is busier.
Always ask the PR's outside the bars what deals are on. If you are in a large group you are more likely to get cheaper deals, especially earlier in the night.
The clubs in Ayia Napa charge anything from €5 upwards for local drinks. Each club is different and some charge upwards of €10 per drink. Some clubs in Ayia Napa have entry deals where you get a free drink included with your entrance ticket. Ask the PR's for each club what deals are on.
If you drink imported or premium brand drinks, expect to pay more in Ayia Napa. For example, if you want Smirnoff Vodka instead of the local brand, Jack Daniels, Corona or Budweiser lager, WKD or bottled drinks, these will all be more expensive as they are not made in Cyprus and have to be imported.
All premium brand spirits will have a local equivalent. The local beers in Cyprus are Carlsberg, Keo and Leon.
