A new luxury marina is under construction in the party town of Ayia Napa. As well as its 600 berths, retail outlets and private beach club, a range of luxury properties are being built that could tempt a new type of buyer to the area.
Located on the south-east coast of Cyprus, just 40 minutes’ drive from Larnaca airport, this former fishing village has morphed into the largest tourist resort on the island thanks to its energetic reputation, 500 metre blue flag stretch of sand called Nissi beach and surrounding cliffs carved into gorgeous bays by the sea. But there’s so much more to Ayia Napa than the hedonistic nightlife it has become famous for since the turn of the millennium, just take a look at its new multi-million euro marina development.
The Ayia Napa Marina project, a mixed-use complex worth £190million and due for completion in 2021, will boast apartments split across two towers and luxury detached villas.
Sparkling new waterfront developments are putting Cyprus on the map when it comes to attracting international buyers who want luxury property with guaranteed sun and long-term investment potential, and Ayia Napa is leading the way. The Ayia Napa Marina project, a mixed-use complex worth £190million and due for completion in 2021, will boast apartments split across two towers and luxury detached villas.
A number of waterfront dining and retail outlets and an events centre, collectively called Pyare Village, will form a semi-circular basin with covered promenade around the marina. There will also be two beaches and a private beach club, with infinity pool, bar and kitchen.
The marina will be large enough to accommodate approximately 600 yachts in wet and dry slips. Wet slips will host yachts up to 60 metres in length and up to 80 metres by advanced booking, while a valet-service dry stack storage facility will be available for boats up to 10 metres in length. The neighbouring boatyard will offer a range of professional marine services such as hauling, launching, and boat maintenance operations.
The ‘finger style’ berthing for yachts of 30 metres or less is a unique take on marina design, while floating docks will guarantee comfortable access whatever the weather. The marina basin has depths of 3.5 to 6.5 metres, ideal for superyachts and deep drafts of sailing boats.
This ambitious development is expected to attract wealthy foreign investors including yacht-owners, and will operate as an upmarket leisure spot for the local area. Because Ayia Napa is located close to both the Turkish and Greek coastlines, the marina should become a popular place to berth boats during winter, cementing its year-round appeal.

Two towers will provide an iconic landmark for what is a landmark development. Visible from both land and sea their design has been inspired by the caryatids and sculptures found at archaeological sites throughout Cyprus, and their wooden facades will give a nod to the craft of ship-building. The unique twist design will be eye-catching and their 100 plus metres will provide breath-taking panoramic views of the Mediterranean, the marina and the coastline.
They will house 190 luxury apartments between them, from one, two, three or four-bedroom residences, to full-floor penthouse apartments on the top two levels of each tower. While 29 luxury villas are being constructed along private roads on the marina island and peninsula, 18 of which will overlook the marina and come complete with walk-out access to secure docks.
