You can watch the boats coming and going by the stunning harbour if you’re looking to relax, but without getting sand in your toes. There are also tonnes of beach bars and delicious places to eat scattered along the coastline. You couldn’t really ask for much more could you?
COST OF LIVING
How much money are you going to need?
For a Cypriot hotspot, Aiya Napa is generally good value. Sure, it may not be as cheap as some of the other popular European destinations, but it’s not bad for a little slice of paradise. We understand that when you’re away from home, in another country, you don’t want to have to worry about money. But we think it’s possible to have an unforgettable time without breaking the bank. Anywhere between 50 – 100 euros a day will do it, depending on how many events or excursions you fancy doing.You might even be able to do it for less than that if you find cheaper places to eat and take advantage of cheaper booze offers. Aiya Napa is typically a lucrative place to work – the pay is usually good and with ACE you’ll get loads of opportunity to earn whatever you want to burn. That’s the beauty of a working holiday – you can essentially make it pay for itself. If you’re clever you can sniff out the deals on drinks and entry to events – but make sure you book any tickets from the right sources online to avoid getting ripped off.

EXPLORING AYIA NAPA
See the amazing parts of Cyprus
Aiya Napa was originally just a small fishing village which means it still retains some of the small-town charm it once had before it became a summer hotspot. You can check out the beautiful marina and go for a swim with the abundance of sea life that surrounds the coast. It’s worth booking yourself onto a boat party and getting a different view of the shore, whilst you cruise around the clear, still waters, enjoying a few drinks. This place has bags of history and culture for you to soak in while you’re over here. Aiya Napa itself is only an hour from Nicosia. You can visit the many museums and join the various tour activities around the capital. If you’re into shopping then this will be right up your street – Nicosia is known for having a great range of shops and restaurants. Definitely worth checking out if you fancy an adventure.
