Ayia Napa, a bustling resort town on Cyprus’s southeastern coast renowned for its lively nightlife houses a hidden gem, the Ayia Napa Sculpture Park. Nestled on the outskirts, away from the town’s energetic buzz, this park serves as a tranquil oasis—providing a stark contrast to the party scene.
Established in 2014, the Ayia Napa Sculpture Park is an open-air museum that undergoes annual expansions, featuring over 50 contemporary sculptures by both local and international artists. Among these artworks, visitors will find depictions of mythical beasts and ancient gods. Set amidst rocky and bushy terrain sloping towards the Mediterranean Sea, the park allows visitors to savor its cultural richness while enjoying panoramic views and relaxing on benches.
In collaboration with municipal authorities, Kikis Konstantinos, a permanent resident of Ayia Napa and the visionary behind both the sculpture park and an adjoining cactus park, aims to transform the town into a cultural hub.
Know Before You Go
The sculpture park offers free admission and is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. It is located at the eastern exit of Ayia Napa, toward Cape Greco. To reach the park, simply follow Kyrou Nerou Road uphill, where you'll find the entrance across from the Marina Hotel. Alternatively, there is a bus stop at the park's entrance for those who prefer public transportation.
