Cliff jumping is a popular thing to do in Ayia Napa and the stunning location of the sea caves and the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranean are really shown in their true beauty on this video by Luca Balassi & Caroline Thio. (You can find their other great travel videos on Facebook)
Laced with glimpses of Parko Paliatso luna park and Nissi Beach, the video concentrates on the sea caves and Cape Greco area at the eastern edge of Ayia Napa.
One of the best ways to explore this area is on the Cave Dwellers Tour which is a half day jeep trip taking in Cape Greco Forest park, Konnos Bay Beach and the Ayia Napa Sea Caves. It is available all year round and ensures you see all the best bits of this beautiful location.
