Free Famagusta area: A coastal paradise

A few decades ago the sleepy villages of the south east coast had little idea that they would one day be embraced by tourists the world over in search of idyllic waters and fun filled holidays in the sun. With the beaches and small towns of Agia Napa and Protaras now catering to the travelers every whim, there’s a plethora of entertainment venues to visit, coupled with luxury hotels and smaller holiday bungalows to accommodate you. Add to that some of the most stunning powdery white sands in the Mediterranean and you’ve got a winning combination. While those looking for the life and soul of the party have certainly come to the right place, there’s much more on offer than sunbathing and a good night out. A drive along the sweeping coastline from Agia Napa towards Protaras offers breathtaking views, dotted with spectacular sea caves that frame iridescent waters. With the Cape Gkreko national forest park excellent for hiking and riding, it gives way to a charming whitewashed cliff top church while nearby secluded bays provide for great snorkeling opportunities. As the sun goes down, countless hidden coves are just the place to catch your breath in true laid-back island style. Not without its ancient tales to tell, the Agia Napa Monastery boasts Venetian architecture and a medieval castle feel while lovers of all things nautical can head down to the contemporary Thalassa Museum.
