North Cyprus as a popular tourist destination.
The unique nature of North Cyprus gives year-round opportunities for a fantastic holiday. From December through January, the rainy season lasts, and the average sea temperature is above 20 degrees for more than half of the year. The island is carpeted with wildflowers in the spring (there are over 38 different varieties of orchids alone), and the scent of orange, lemon, and grapefruit blossom fills the air.
The beaches of North Cyprus have some of the greatest Mediterranean temperatures. Even though most tourist hotels have modern pools, the Mediterranean’s pristine blue waves are great for swimming, snorkeling, sailing, and skiing. The bulk of tourist resorts are at Iskele on the north coast and Famagusta on the east coast, respectively. As you go closer to the beach, most of the fun spots are along the coast road.
The Turkish Cypriot people are known for their warm hospitality, and you will be treated as such whether you are out shopping or eating.
