The A3 motorway (Greek: δρόμος Διεθνούς Αερολιμένα Λάρνακας - Αγίας Νάπας) is a modern motorway linking Larnaca International Airport, the largest airport in Cyprus, and Ayia Napa, a popular seaside destination. It is 55 km long. The road was built in five phases and took about 10 years to be completed. The first part of the road until Dhekelia is locally referred as "Larnaca Beltway" (Greek: Παρακαμπτήριος Λάρνακας) and the second part till the end of the motorway as "Dhekelia - Famagusta Motorway" (Greek: Αυτοκινητόδρομος Δεκέλειας - Αμμοχώστου). Its routing takes it past Aradippou, Oroklini, Xylotymvou, Ormidia, and Xylofagou. The Larnaca beltway section, until the final phase was completed, used to culminate in an acute bend which was a major accident blackspot.
