how old do you have to be to go clubbing in ayia napa?

Me and five friends were thinking of going to Ayia Napa next year and three of us will be 18 but the other three will still be 17 :/ will they get into clubs? I think the clubs won't be too strict but obviously we want to know for sure before we go!

The legal drinking age is 18 for clubs and pubs in Cyprus, generally you wont be asked for ID but have a read of this thread too with regards underage drinkers tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g262055-i9247-k5…

The drinking age in all of Europe is 18.

Ibiza, being in Europe, has a legal drinking age of 18.

That info is slightly out of date I'm afraid, due to issues with drugs & alcohol the rules change for 2013 and it's raised to 18 as I indicated above It's come about due to the Alcohol Policy Developments in Cyprus. (Sept 2012) And yes you can enter a nightclub at 16 but are not allowed to purchase or consume alcohol anywhere including shops.

as long as you look 17/18 you'll have no issues. i saw loads of people who didn't look 18 and they were all getting served

Very true jonnypb............BUT if you get caught it's a night in the cells and a hefty fine. So, better to be warned of what might happen rather than assume all is okay if the police stop you in or outside any clubs or pubs and you can't produce ID proving your age

You'll be fine, we met a fair few groups who were 16-17, no one gets ID'd, you can drink when and were you want without any problems, all the party resorts are the same. Miss chief, I wouldn't like to be one of your children

What? A parent who tells her children not to break the law? No, can't have that can we? God, this country.
