Derynia is a municipality in the Ammochostos province of Cyprus. It attained municipality status in 1994.

Derynia lies within the government-controlled area but very close to the Turkish-occupied territories. Between August 11 and August 14, 1996, two Cypriots - Tasos Isaak and Solomos Solomou - were killed in Derynia, by Turks, during protests.

Derynia has a cultural centre, a cultural museum, several monuments to local persons who fell during the Turkish invasion of 1974 and many interesting churches.
