Getting from Larnaca Airport to Ayia Napa

Earlier in 2018 – or rather, before the beginning of the tourist season – it was impossible to get from the Larnaca airport to Ayia Napa by bus without changes in between. This issue was resolved with the launching of the Airport Shuttle service on the transport market.

However, the first mode of transport – a bus – whilst being the cheapest way to get to your destination, still presents some negatives. With other options, including booked transfers and taxis, there are numerous methods that will get you safely and efficiently from A to B. The content below will discuss the advantages and disadvantages alike of these three modes of travel – allowing you to decide your preferred, most optimal journey.

1. Arriving at Ayia Napa by bus

Bus from Larnaca airport to Ayia Napa.  There is now a direct route between the airport and Ayia Napa, without stops. However, it was previously necessary to stop at Finikoudes waterfront in Larnaca before changing to a bus that delivers you to the surrounding popular resorts. This route still exists, and for tourists eager to see as much of Cyprus as possible then it is often their preferred journey. But for those wanting a quicker, direct course to Ayia Napa, then the former is a convenient choice.

The shuttle, which runs 24/7 between Larnaca Airport and Ayia Napa, began operating this route in May 2018. For passenger convenience, the shuttle is comfortable, equipped with air-conditioning and provides access to the internet via integrated wifi. The bus interval is about once per hour.

Bus tickets.  To purchase bus tickets, when exiting the airport, make your way to the Airport Shuttle desk to pay for the fare. Single-journey adult prices are 9 euros, 6 euros for children and those aged 2 years and below go free of charge. Return tickets are priced at 16 euros and 10 euros, respectively. The option to buy a travel card for one month with unlimited travel for 160 euros is also available.

The bus departs from the airport on schedule and rides continuously until the final 45 minutes of the journey. From there, the final stop is Makariou Avenue Bus Stop, which is located in the centre of Ayia Napa.

The bus timetable from Larnaca Airport to Ayia Napa is shown below:

Shuttle departure:  00:15, 03:00, 05:45, 08:45, 10:15, 11:00, 11:45, 13:15, 14:15, 15:15, 16:15, 17:15, 18:15, 19:15, 20:15, 21:15, 22:15, 23:15.

2. Arriving by transfer

Transfer from Larnaca airport to Ayia Napa.  The introduction of the new bus route has created a more cost-effective and convenient means of travelling from Larnaka airport to Ayia Napa. However, there is one large BUT. The bus runs strictly according to schedule from the airport to the centre of Ayia Napa without stopping. What if I need to get to a hotel? You might ask. In this case, you have to get off at the final stop and change to a taxi. Whilst not necessarily a problem, there are additional costs. The initial cost of a taxi is approximately 4 euros, followed by 1 euro for every kilometre travelled. This excess of expense makes journeying by bus a questionable choice.

To avoid changeovers and additional costs, you can book a transfer that will take you from Larnaca Airport to any hotel in Ayia Napa. You will be met at the airport and both yourself and your luggage will be safely delivered directly to the doorstep of the hotel. The price of a one-way transfer is 16 euros for adults. Children from 3 to 11 years old travel for half the price.

If you need to get to one of the hotels in Ayia Napa or, conversely, return to the airport, then an inexpensive transfer can be ordered – here.

3. Arriving by taxi

Taxi from Larnaca airport to Ayia Napa.  So far, we have discovered that travel via bus is most effective when your destination is the centre of Ayia Napa. And for arrival at numerous hotels, transfers are the most suitable choice. The remaining mode of transport is the use of a taxi. What circumstances would result in this being the most appropriate means?

For groups of 3+ people, it’s advantageous to book a taxi as the price of the trip justifies itself. Sharing a taxi means you are able to arrive as quickly as possible, in comfort and for a reasonable price. A taxi ride will cost on average, 48 euros.

If you need to get to one of the hotels in Ayia Napa or you are flying home from Cyprus, you can book a taxi in advance — here.
