The Best Beach Bars in Ayia Napa & Protaras

The waves are gently licking the shore, singing their gentle lullaby, as the cool breeze and warm sun rays tickle your skin. You, of course, are enjoying the view of the beach, with a drink in your hand.

This idyllic scene depicting the perfect island holiday is not just a fantasy – you can easily make it a reality in Cyprus! Doing so is even encouraged, as spending every moment possible by the sea is an important seasonal tradition for locals.

Being completely surrounded by the Mediterranean on all sides, the island’s seaside beauty can be truly appreciated by visiting one of the many beach bars in Ayia Napa and Protaras. In fact, there is a thriving and vibrant collection that can cater to every taste, mood, and demographic!

The latest addition to the Ayia Napa Marina, Riva Beachouse serves discerning guests who appreciate the finer things in life. Its cuisine hails from all corners of the world, whilst the ambience draws inspiration from the 1960s Golden Age of Air Travel.

Fine gastronomy, a premium experience, and a serene seascape only a few minutes away from the vibrant city centre of Ayia Napa are the centrepieces of the Riva Beachouse.

Greek Island Vibes – Pagida Seaside

Want to escape to the Greek islands for a few hours and be back at SkyPrime Villas by nightfall?

Head on down to Pagida Seaside, which overlooks the whitewashed, seaside Agia Thekla chapel with its blue dome, doors, and windows. As for the bar itself, it can be found on Poseidon Beach, with an all-white interior design and occasional splashes of blue. Gazing out into the sea, enjoying your white-washed surroundings and the Mediterranean cuisine on offer will truly have you feeling like you are lounging on an Aegean island’s beach.

Although Protaras and Ayia Napa are now cosmopolitan resorts bustling with life, they used to be sleepy, coastal villages as recently as 30 years ago. If you want to get a genuine taste of what life used to be like in this corner of the island, the Sirena Bay Beach Bar is the right choice for you.

Found under the shade of a seaside forest between the brilliant Pernera and Ayia Triada beaches, Sirena Bay offers a truly authentic Cypriot experience. The Bar specialises in Cypriot cuisine and platters, although it also caters to those interested in snacks and burgers.

Don’t be surprised if the bar mesmerises you – after all, the name has given you plenty of warning!

A Casual, Relaxed Choice – Antamoma Beach Bar

This is the ideal choice for those looking for a zen experience.

Overlooking a small bay, the Antamoma Beach Bar is a relaxed, laidback option with an earthy, open-air environment that heavily incorporates nature into its design. Relax with friends over a hookah shisha, cocktails, cheese, and fruit platters.
