Famagusta

Category

Famagusta, situated on the south east coast of Northern Cyprus, is a place where you can really feel the magic of Cyprus’ colourful past; so much so that when you visit you feel as if you can almost reach out and touch the island’s rich history.

You will also hear and see Famagusta being referred to as Mağosa, Mağusa or Gazimağusa (Gazi meaning unconquered).  Once one of the world’s most famous and richest cities when it was under the rule of the Lusignans, Famagusta is also rich in architecture from the Venetian period when it was fortified against the invading Turks.

Once a sleepy little coastal Cypriot village, Bafra (also know as Vokolida), situated in the district of Iskele, has seen a massive explosion of growth over the past 10-15 years!  With some stunning beach areas, the government of TRNC decreed this a designated tourist area in 2006 and since that time has offered tenders to developers to come and invest in the area.

The pretty coastal harbour town of Boğaz is located on the south east coastal road next to the main town of Iskele in North Cyprus. It can be reached from Kyrenia for example by the Gecitkale road via Lefkoşa, you turn left at the coastal junction and then just a few miles afterwards you will find the town as the road narrows as you’re passing through it.
