Synopses & Reviews
North Cypruss resorts, properties and facilities are growing rapidly. This new edition caters for travelers interested in exploring the ancient and modern culture of Cyprus, including the history behind the estrangement between the Turkish North and the Greek South, upon which a background is provided in the guide. The discovery of classical ruins, monasteries, churches and castles has been made even easier with the advent of greater cross-border traffic. Also worth a visit is the Karpas Peninsula, renowned for its turtle population and often referred to as the nature reserve of Cyprus.
The best for the Turkish side of the island.”
Condé Nast Traveler
North Cyprus is rapidly becoming the place to visit in the Mediterranean with the air redolent with the scent of citrus blossom, turtles nesting undisturbed on pristine golden beaches, and romantic castles standing proud on rugged hilltops.
