Nissi Bay is located just west of Ayia Napa on the southeast end of Cyprus and is a cove all to itself. The local area has plenty to offer, from bars and clubs to beautiful historic monasteries and ruins. Cape Greco isn’t far to the east and is well worth a visit to see wonderful views and unique rock formations. This part of Cyprus is brimming with heritage, culture and pride, all of which can be seen in the local festivals each year. 

Nissi Bay is a 500m beach cove with Blue Flag status and a lot of things to do. Beach holidays in Nissi Bay are hot and sunny with plenty of white sand to lay your towel on and clear water to swim in. A small islet just off the beach can be walked to in shallow water or over sand at low tide, and you can enjoy local seafood at any of the beachside restaurants. 

Sun, sea and sand are everywhere in this lovely destination. In Nissi Bay, there are tons of sports and activities to do including two beach volleyball courts right on the sand. Windsurfing, kayaking, pedalos, snorkelling and diving are just a few of the ways you can get involved in water sports and for those who like relaxing on the water, there are many boat tours available as well.

Cyprus is divided with half the island being Greek and half being Turkish. Both cultures’ cuisines are available across the whole island and make for delicious meals each day.
