North Cyprus holidays

North Cyprus is a Mediterranean island located south of Turkey that was separated thirty years ago. North Cyprus, which occupies nearly one-third of the island’s landmass, is known as the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus. Between this area and the Greek Cypriot south, a United Nations Buffer Zone divides Nicosia, the island’s capital. Although the bigger Greek half of North Cyprus remains the most popular destination for a holiday, there has been a steady increase in tourists to the north since the turn of the century. The Turkish lira is the local currency in North Cyprus.

The beaches of North Cyprus are one of the key attractions of low-cost vacations there. You can select from kilometers of golden sands and protected bays in the north, which has more than half of the island’s beaches. They are ideal for families, especially those with little children because they have warm, sparkling seas, soft sand, and adequate amenities. Some of the greatest beaches are in Famagusta Bay, but Kyrenia is a close second. Many rocky coves are available for snorkeling and diving. If you prefer more remote beaches, proceed to the Karpaz Peninsula’s National Park. Hundreds of loggerhead turtles congregate here to lay their eggs.

The Besparmak Mountains’ foothills are ideal for hikers, as there are several defined paths of varying degrees of difficulty. Many of the hikes begin in Bellapais, a charming community that needs to be explored on its own. It is a picturesque hamlet with a lighted medieval abbey at night. Another major tourist destination near Famagusta is the archaeological ruins of the ancient Roman city of Salamis.
