This Mediterranean resort is shedding its former reputation and revealing itself afresh with luxury hotels and a sparkling sail-studded marina.

Cyprus’s one-time party capital juts out into the Mediterranean, on the island’s far southeast shore. Famous for its blowouts, Ayia Napa is surprisingly pretty, with 14 Blue Flag beaches. Indeed, it’s on a mission to ditch its ’90s reputation and become “the most cosmopolitan tourist resort of the Mediterranean”, thanks to investment in hotels and a shop-lined marina. You may not come here for pin-drop peace and quiet, but there are hip beach clubs, traditional tavernas and even archaeological sites and an aqueduct to visit, too.

    Despite its name, this is a spot to be seen, though you will lose yourself in the twinkling sea views and rippling shallows opposite. Close to Nissi Beach and the bar scene of Ayia Napa town, the waters in front of the hotel are a shallow lagoon – ideal for children or anyone who loves to paddle rather than swimming lengths. Rooms are simple blue-and-white numbers – go for one with a sea-view balcony to add a touch of glamour.

    Perched right on the sands of Blue-Flag Makronissos Beach, this clubby four-star occupies a huge stretch of sand, with rows of cushioned, palm-thatched loungers and plump white beanbags to sunbathe on. Rooms are smart and modern with lashings of dove-grey and oyster (family rooms have cute bunk beds), but you’ll spend much of your time out by the lagoon-style pool when not on the beach.
