Northern Cyprus

kibris6North Cyprus is a magical place and may truly be described as “A Sanctuary of Unspoilt Beauty”. A holiday destination that has so much to offer: a superb climate, wonderful beaches, warm blue seas and equally warm and friendly people. Reasonable prices too.North Cyprus is a colourful tapestry of unspoilt natural beauty, ranging from sparkling crystal clear waters and golden beaches to fields carpeted with wild flowers in the spring, and on the Besparmak Mountains, carob, olive and pine trees.

North Cyprus has also got a remarkable history to explore. For centuries, Cyprus has been influenced by the cultures of many different civilisations which has led to an island with rich and diverse historical and architectural heritage. From Soli and Vouni in the west, to Salamis and the site of St Andreas in the east there is so much to reflect 9000 years of civilisation.

The beaches of North Cyprus are among the cleanest and safest in the Mediterranean. The average water temperature between May and October is 25 degrees Celsius. The fine beaches cater for all tastes. The sun worshipper, the beach-comber and the active water sports enthusiast will each and all be equally satisfied.

Turkish Cypriot cuisine reflects the influence of many cultures with the Turkish influence being foremost. The freshest of produce, poultry, lamb, beef, fish, succulent vegetables, fruits and the practiced use of herbs and spices makes any meal in North Cyprus a real pleasure.

Environment

kibris3

North Cyprus is characterized by a unique blend of mountains, plains, and beaches. The Kyrenia (Five Finger) mountain range, with its magnificent jagged limestone peaks, the highest of which is Mount Uluova at 3,357 ft. runs along most of the northern coastline form a startling backdrop. To the east of the island the mountain range loses height as it extends along the narrow peninsula known as Karpas, or more affectionately, `The Panhandle’. It is here that the best beaches of Cyprus can be found, long wide empty bays of the purest sand that strech for miles.

To the south of the Kyrenia range lies Nicosia (Lefkosa), the capital of North Cyprus, through which runs the boundary, or as it is called `The Green Line’ separating the North from South Cyprus. The other major centres are the tourist resorts of Famagusta (Magusa), Kyrenia (Girne), and the citrus centre of Guzelyurt (Morphou).

Climate

kibris5

Cyprus has always been an island, and many Cypriot species, particularly plants, are found nowhere else in the world. There are three main habitats in Cyprus: the mountain ranges, the coastal plains and the cultivated lands. The coastal plains are irrigated by seasonal streams, and some support citrus orchards, but native flora and fauna have been largely displaced by tourism.

The Cypriot climate is typically Mediterranean, with very hot summers in July and August. Most of the year is dry, with unpredictable rains falling in December, January and February.

How to Come to North Cyprus

kibris2

There are frequent scheduled and charter flights out of England and other European Countries to the island. More than 60 flights per week arrive at Ercan airport during the summer. There are several flights from London – Heathrow, London – Gatwick and London – Stansted. North Cyprus has direct air links only with Turkey, where all aircraft from Europe must first touch down. From Turkey, you can choose from a number of scheduled flights from Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara, Adana and Antalya. However, it is almost guaranteed by now, that after the Turkish side’s positive attitude towards the UN peace plan, direct flights will start to Ercan Airport from several countries. However direct flights can be used to Larnaca in the South of Cyprus and then transport to North Cyprus.

Currency

The local currency is the Turkish Lira (TL), but Cyprus pounds, sterling, Deutschmarks, and US dollars may often be used directly. Major credit cards are accepted in most shops and hotels.

Traffic

In North Cyprus traffic travels on the left. International road and traffic signs are used. Maximum travelling speed is 100km/h. Seat belts are obligatory.

Electricity

240 Volts. Plugs are English standard.
