Located at the beginning of the Cape Greco national forest park, you will find impressive rock bridges, hidden caves, and tunnels. Not only are they visually stunning, but the sea caves also stretch up to 80 meters underground and are partially submerged. During low tide, you can explore them on foot, making this area a popular destination for snorkeling, diving, and swimming in the crystal-clear water. According to legend, these caves were once used by pirates to store their treasures, and the vast tunnels, bridges, and rock formations provided the perfect hiding spot for these seafarers.

The cliffs, standing at 10 meters high, are a favorite spot for cliff jumpers, and local fishermen claim that this is an excellent location for catching octopus. The sea caves offer an abundance of marine life to observe, and they are an impressive sight whether you view them from sea level or from the cliffs above.

How to get to the Ayia Napa Sea Caves

To reach the Ayia Napa sea caves by road, head east from Ayia Napa towards Protaras. Take the first left at the sign for the Grecian Park Hotel and Cape Greco. Shortly after, turn right onto a dirt track that leads to the sea caves. If you happen to miss the sign, you can look out for a solitary carob tree in a field with a bench underneath it next to the turning.

The local bus route 101/102 passes by this area, although there is still a considerable distance to walk from the main road to reach the sea caves. Alternatively, you can choose to walk to the sea caves by following the coastal pathway from Ayia Napa. Keep in mind that this is a lengthy walk and is recommended only for experienced distance walkers who have enough water, sun hats, and sunscreen.

For a truly unique way to explore the sea caves, consider joining the Cave Dwellers Jeep Safari. This half-day off-road trip takes you around Cape Greco and the sea caves, allowing you to visit stunning locations such as Konnos Bay, hidden cave churches, and all the best photo spots in the area.

A wonderful and very impressive work of Mother Nature located near Cape Geco. Without a doubt, a must-see during a trip to Cyprus. It is a large cliff in which water and faith have carved out spectacular tunnels and rock formations over the centuries. It makes a huge impression live

It's a beautiful place, if you're visiting, you should definitely check it out. We were there in January, because of the big waves and strong wind it was impossible to go down, but the view is amazing.

Interesting rock formations. A charming place

Un magnifique paradis caché, lorsque vous regardez la pointe avec plein de grottes, vous avez tout en face une descente qui donne accès plus bas et les photos sont superbes.
Friendly Cuba in Chypre

Ayia Napa Sea Caves is a must-see attraction along the stunning coastline on the edge of Ayia Napa. In the Cape Greco National Park, impressive rock bridges begin (we talked about the “lover's bridge” here), hidden
caves and tunnels. Not only are the sea caves amazing to look at, but they extend 80 meters underground and are only partially submerged in water. They can be explored on foot at low tide and the area is popular for snorkeling, diving and simply swimming in the crystal clear waters.

Megéri kivárni a sort ha van, illetve az igényesebbek látványért/képért a megfelelő időt kivárni.

Beautiful, you have to see it!

A place with a nice atmosphere, a parking lot close to the caves - however, in January the road to the parking lot is quite poor (probably after the rainfall)

I have been many times when I stayed in Cyprus for 2 months. Beautiful place for photography and cliff jump. Be careful during winter. The sea waves can easily blow the people away.

This place is must visit if you on that side of Cyprus.

A very picturesque place with interesting rock formations. The most interesting thing is the window in the rock, to which everyone who can climb a few rock steps down and up will see a very nice view and a place for a nice photo. In mid-December, not many people, but you have to wait a few minutes for your turn.
