How to Get Around Ayia Napa
When travelling to a destination it can be hard to figure out what kind of transportation you will need. In Ayia Napa you have a wide variety of options available to you, depending on what you have in mind for when you get here. Here are some of the options for getting around in Ayia Napa.
On Foot: Ayia Napa is small enough that you can actually reasonably get around by foot. There are lots of sidewalks and a boardwalk for pedestrians to safely get around, but not every road has a sidewalk. This is great for budget travelers who are travelling without any small children. It will also get you some great exercise to walk off all the excesses of vacation.
Bicycle: There are many bicycles that you can rent in various places around Ayia Napa. It is lovely to cycle around the city while gazing out into the Mediterranean. There are also lots of bike lanes that make for a fairly safe experience. Don’t forget to wear your helmet!
Mopeds: These fun little bikes are great to zoom around Ayia Napa. Obviously they are to be avoided if you plan on being intoxicated or irresponsible. Mopeds are not safe for anyone who is fooling around.
Vehicle Rental: Of all of the options, this is the least recommended if you plan in just staying in Ayia Napa. Obviously if you want to explore more of Cyprus, it is a good option for you though. The fact is Ayia Napa doesn’t have the best traffic or parking. Also, Cypriot laws on drinking and driving are very strict, and the last think you want on a vacation is a DUI.
Taxi Rentals: You can find taxis rolling around Ayia Napa at just about any time of day or night. When taking a ride in a taxi, you can negotiate the price to a destination. If you don’t feel comfortable haggling, make sure they turn on their meter.
