Famagusta boasts miles of fine,  golden sandy beaches, known as  being the best on the island and is an ideal centre from which to explore the history of the island.

Famagusta, originally a small commercial port and fishing town on the Mediterranean, flourished during the Lusignan period, becoming an important trading centre between the Middle East and Europe. Its importance and wealth in the Middle Ages was displayed in its 365 churches, built to prevent the wrath of God from falling upon  this prosperous city. Massively fortified by the Venetians, the old city, still surrounded by its ancient walls, provides the backdrop for today’s bustling city. Quieter than Kyrenia, Famagusta nevertheless has a wealth of colourful restaurants, cafes and bars where you can sample the delicious local cuisine. Despite its large student population, it is relatively traditional in atmosphere. Explore the narrow streets of the old quarter with its maze of tiny shops or visit the Citadel and ‘Othello’s Tower’, said to have been the inspiration for Shakespeare’s play.

Things to do in and around Famagusta


You should not miss a visit to the impressive site of the ancient city of Salamis, the most influential of the Kingdoms of Cyprus for over 1000 years and one of the best-preserved sites in the mediterranean. Wander the ancient streets or swim amongst the ruins of the harbour. If you look carefully, you can see tiny fragments of mosaic still partially buried in the earth.


Walk through the worlds only divided city, visiting such sights as Selimiye Mosque - once a cathedral known as St Sophia, The Great Inn (Buyuk Han) - built in the Ottoman period where travelling merchants used to stay, The Bazaar - this covered indoor market has a large selection of local produce or get the most beautiful, panoramic views of the capital from the rooftop of the Saray Hotel, whilst enjoying a refreshing drink.
