Explore Cypriot history and nature, a former fishing village and a medieval monastery
Join me for a tour of Ayia Napa, the former fishing village that is the island's biggest tourist resort today. Start with a light walk at nearby Cape Greco national park, a major site for bird migration and endemic plant species. Enjoy the sea views, the sea cave/rock formations and low lying maquis shrubland.
Then we move to the town of Ayia Napa to visit the medieval monastery where a medieval-themed festival takes place every October. Visit Thalassa museum, dedicated to marine history and wildlife, and the outdoor Sculpture Park.
