Description Ayia Napa is a resort town on the eastern part of the island of Cyprus, just south of the city of Famagusta. It's name is derived from a monastery from the Venetian era, which is located in the central part of the town. A group of MBA from VCU visited Ayia Napa while taking part in a study abroad opportunity called the International Consulting Program. I was part of that group. One of the beaches at Ayia Napa is seen in this picture.
