Ayia Thekla is an area a few kilometers south of Sotira on the border between Ayia Napa and the village of Sotira Famagusta, however religiously it belongs to Sotira. The area is named after the chapel of Ayia Protomartyros and Isapostolou Thekla which is situated on the beach, south of the settlement. Several of the portable icons have been painted in the occupied monastery of Barnabas the Apostle near Salamis.
Despite the fact that Sotira is known for its numerous exquisite churches, it is remarkable that many couples, both locals and visitors, opt to get married in this exquisite church.

Religious services and baptisms are also held at this church, attracting more and more people.

There are restaurants and other unique entertainment venues right next to the church and opposite the sea. There is also a long road that leads to a beautiful scenery ideal for hikers.
