BEST FAMILY DAYS OUT IN AYIA NAPA
1 . Waterworld Waterpark
Ayia Napa's number 1 attraction is a perfect day out for families, with slides and attractions for all ages. There's a large shallow splash pool perfect for small children and fun challenges and activities for slightly older children. For teenagers and grown ups, there's all sorts of slides including some adrenalin fuelled, faced paced twisters. All the family can enjoy the lazy river and there's cafe's and snack bars as well as plenty of sun loungers to catch a rest between all the fun.
2. Yellow Submarine Boat Trip
This is the best boat trip for families with children of all ages. It's only an hour and a half long, so it's not long enough for the kids to get bored. There's an underwater viewing level to see the seafloor as the boat cruises along and when it stops at the sea caves, there's a fish feeding show. The boat has a slide and diving board and life vests are available. It's plenty of fun on the sea and the kids can even help drive the boat home.
