location iconDherynia Village in Famagusta telephone icon+357 2381 1000 website iconWebsite

Dherynia is a charming village in the Famagusta district of Cyprus. It is well worth a day trip, considering that it boasts many attractions, including an outdoor folk-art museum at the heart of the settlement – at Demetri Liberti 2. The Deryneia Folkloric Museum, in a house opposite the Open Air Traditional Folk Art Museum, documents aspects of lifestyle in an old traditional residence.

There are several charming churches around the village, including the Church of Agios Georgios, which dates from the 17th century, the Chapel of Agia Marina from the 12th century, the old Agios Georgios Church from the 15th century in the central square, and Church of the Birth of the Theotokos from the 15th century – known for its stunning iconostasis from 1911.

The Cultural Centre of Occupied Famagusta is another must-see landmark in Dherynia. It hosts all kinds of events, including exhibitions, conferences, workshops, and performances. Visitors can borrow binoculars to observe the side of Famagusta over the border in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Dherynia is famous as a producer of strawberries and potatoes. They even hold a strawberry festival every two years. If you don’t happen in the village when strawberries are in season, you can always enjoy strawberry juice, jam, liquor, candy, and other treats made with the fragrant fruits.

When you stay at Leonardo Crystal Cove & Spa by the Sea, Dherynia is just 25 minutes away by car.

More Trips & Excursions

Cactus Park
Officially the Ayia Napa Park of Mediterranean Plants, Cactus and Succulents, the Ayia Napa Cactus Park is worth a day trip from Protaras. It is next to the Ayia Napa International Sculpture Park and Open Sculpture Museum – so you can see both in one trip.
 
Cyclops Cave
Not far from Protaras, the Cyclops Cave is the legendary den of the mythical man-eating one-eyed Cyclops Polyphemus who trapped Odysseus and some of his men on their way back home from the Trojan War. Odysseus eventually blinded the cyclops with a wooden stake and escaped unharmed, but he did lose some of his men.
 
Sculpture Park
One of the most fascinating things to see when you vacation in Protaras, and a short drive from Leonardo Crystal Cove Hotel & Spa by the Sea, the Sculpture Park in Ayia Napa is a premiere in the Famagusta Free Province. It hosts works by artists participating in the Ayia Napa Municipality International Sculpture Symposium meetups between 2014-2017 – both Cypriot and international talent.
 
Medusa Boat Trips
Medusa Cruises offers a variety of boat trips and tours. They do, however, have a daily boat tour in the summer leaving at 10:45 a.m. from the Pernera Fishing Shelter in the Protaras Harbour. Besides the scheduled daily trips, they also offer sunset cruises, fishing trips, and private charters for events like hen or stag parties, weddings, birthdays, and other happy occasions.
 
Ocean Aquarium
The Ocean Aquarium is an exotic destination where adults and children alike can observe a variety of animals in a fascinating natural setting.
 
Thalassa Municipal Museum
Right in the centre of Ayia Napa, a short drive from Protaras, the Thalassa Municipal Museum opened its doors in 2005. It is a maritime museum that documents the role, importance, and impact of the sea on the island of Cyprus.
