Getting From Lanarca Airport to Ayia Napa in Cyprus

Larnaca Airport

Larnaca Airport (LCA) is the main international airport for Cyprus and the largest on the island. The Republic of Cyprus (south side) has another smaller international airport on the west side of the island in Paphos (PFO). Most flights will fly into Larnaca airport, but recently more and more airlines like Ryanair also use Paphos. In this article we focus on Larnaca Airport.

Larnaca International Airport is located 36 miles (58km) from Agia Napa on the East side of Cyprus. This is our comprehensive guide setting out all the options of how to reach Agia Napa from Larnaca Airport.

Airport shuttle bus

There is an Airport Shuttle Bus which runs at various times throughout the day. It goes directly from Larnaca Airport to Agia Napa in 50 minutes, then continues on to Protaras and Paralimni where it terminates. This bus started recently and is still increasing its timetables. It’s a blessing for because previously the only public bus available to get from Larnaca Airport to Agia Napa involved a stop over in Larnaca town.

The first Airport Shuttle Bus from Larnaca Airport to Agia Napa starts at 04:30 with one leaving roughly every hour until the last one at 00:05. In the opposite direction, from Agia Napa to Larnaca Airport, the Shuttle Bus runs almost throughout the day from 01:00 to 23:00. The buses run every day despite holidays.

“You say poushti like it’s a bad thing” …so said one of the many banners at the Gay Cyprus Pride parade in Nicosia. In everyday Greek, “pousti” (or “poushti” when you say it with a Cypriot-Greek accent) means “poof” or “fag”, and is usually used in a derogative way.

For Stefan growing up in a Greek-Cypriot society across London and Cyprus, relatives would use it in a sort of “act like a man” type of way, like “don’t be a pousti!” Let’s just say that Greek society growing up wasn’t the most gay friendly! Fast forward to 2018 and oh my god look how far the country has evolved!

Cyprus now not only has an array of LGBTQ friendly laws in place, it has a gay pride parade taking place every year since 2014, which is supported by the government, with thousands of people. We were proud to attend the 5th Cyprus Pride in Nicosia in June 2018.

LGBTQ rights in Cyprus

Cyprus traditionally has been a very socially conservative society, dominated by the Greek Orthodox Church, which commonly expresses anti-LGBTQ comments. Despite this, Cyprus continues to evolve with its LGBTQ rights.
