Ercan to Ayia Napa

Simple question I need help with:

I'll be arriving around 2200 on a Friday to Ercan (Lefkosa) and I need to get to Ayia Napa.

What is the cheapest, least time consuming and most convenient way of getting there these days?

Thanks in advance....any hint is much appreciated!

Hi Hellomisssunshine

If your not hiring a car the only way to cross over is through Ledra St crossing by foot but not sure if that closes during the night. So if you arrive at Ercan at 2200 hrs probably get out of the airport by 2230 hrs and it is roughly 12.26 kilometers (km). probably best to book a hotel for the night.

If you decide to hire a car it's very straight forward there is only one road out of the airport and as you come to the main moterway you turn right and head for Famagusta (Ammochostos) and there you can cross over at Deryneia crossing. Here's a link to a map

Hi everyone!

So we made it without a car and late at night:

We landed at Ercan just on time for the last Kibhas bus

ercanairportnorthcyprus.com/services/…

The fare was 8Tl to downtown Nicosia with it. Then we asked them to drop us off at Ledra street. However this was impossible so he dropped us at the street where Ledra starts. We walked to the border crossing (a good 15 minutes) and crossed without any problems. The crossing is open 24/7. Once on the south side there is no public transport - the last coach / bus / shared taxi runs at 6 pm so we had a pre-arranged taxi to drop us off in Ayia Napa.

The taxi ride was 70 euros and took 1 hour. On our way back we managed to get it down to 60 euros though.

I'm looking at the bus schedule. There isn't anything after 1900 hours. How did you manage to pick up a bus at 22:30??

Please respond back.
