About Ayia Napa

Ayia Napa is located near Cape Greco in the eastern part of Cyprus, south of Famagusta and is part of the Kokkinochoria area. Ayia Napa belongs to the Famagusta District. It is approximately 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) from Protaras, another well-known tourist destination.
Ayia Napa is Cyprus' largest tourist resort. In 2017, the resort welcomed 700,000 tourists and hosted 5 million overnight stays, accounting for around 30% of Cyprus' total overnight stays. Since the 2010s the city has aimed to enhance its tourist offerings. Their goal was to deter unruly groups of young tourists and transform into the ``best and most cosmopolitan tourist resort of the Mediterranean`` by 2030. Initiatives include closing problematic establishments since 2013, improving infrastructure, hotels, restaurants and introducing new facilities like a marina and an underwater museum. This vision aligns with the Cyprus Tourism Strategy of 2017, envisioning Ayia Napa as one of Europe's top three beach and nightclubbing holiday destinations, offering a superior beach and marine experience in Cyprus for young adults, complemented by international standard beach clubs and nightlife. The strategy aimed to enhance Ayia Napa's quality rating from 3.4/5 to 4.4/5. Furthermore, Ayia Napa earned recognition as a Prime City Destination from the Oxford Business Assembly. In 2018, it was honoured with the 'Flag of Europe' for investment and innovation attractiveness and the International Certificate of Excellence in Investment and Innovation (ICEII).

Greek is the most widely spoken language on the island, and it is the native language of the majority of the population. English is also widely used and understood, particularly in urban areas and in business and tourism contexts.

Legends and Tradition
Per local legend, a hunter pursuing prey found a Virgin Mary icon in a cave. A monastery was constructed around the cave, and the name Virgin Mary of Napa was later abbreviated to Ayia Napa. Another tale speaks of a Venetian noblewoman who fled parental objections to her commoner love interest, residing as a nun in the area. The Venetians established a church around 1500. According to local tradition, the region, excluding the monastery, remained uninhabited until around 1790. Nikolaos Kemitzis from Thessaloniki arrived from Greece and settled in the village of Panayia, situated in the north-eastern part of Ayia Napa, after facing conflicts with Ottoman authorities ruling Cyprus. Kemitzis chose to relocate near the Ayia Napa monastery.
