Ayia Napa and Cape Greco
Ayia Napa and Cape Greco holidays
It is unusual for Sunvil to feature a property in the Ayia Napa area of the island. The town of Ayia Napa was, like many other Cypriot coastal towns, a quiet fishing village until its rapid expansion in the late 1990's into the most popular European clubbing destination after Ibiza.
Holidays In Ayia Napa and Cape Greco
To many, the image of Ayia Napa is still of this clubbing scene, full of noise and groups of youngsters lining the bars in the town. Although some elements of this do still exist, the clubbing crowd is fickle and the revellers have moved away from Ayia Napa to the next 'hot spot'. The result is that, although still vibrant with a young demographic, Ayia Napa is not the same rowdy destination as it was in previous years. It is also a popular family destination because of the excellent beaches.
However, the area of Cape Greco ( the location of the property we feature) is south-east of Ayia Napa further along the coast. This area is a National nature reserve and, as such, is not as developed as the surrounding areas of Ayia Napa and Protaras.
The Cape Greco coastline and National Park is a pristine Mediterranean landscape, particularly inviting during the spring and autumn seasons and excellent for walking and rambling during the winter. The environmentally sensitive coastline area is a rugged landmass of dramatic features that has been sculpted by the sea and weather into an amazing number of bays, coves and projecting headlands with a rich history dating back to Neolithic times. From the property we feature there is a nature trail to the Blue Flag Konnos Beach, a fifteen minute walk away.
The Beach at Konnos has good facilities and a charming beach café-bar. The ‘Spartiatis’ taverna overlooks the bay and nearby is the five star Grecian Park Hotel which has respected and enhanced the natural surroundings.
