Must See in Cyprus

Ayia Napa

Once a simple fishing village, Ayia Napa (Greek Cyprus) is now a popular beach resort. Approximately half a million tourists visit Cyprus annually. Visitors can enjoy beaches, water-skiing and snorkeling or go sightseeing (there's a 16th-century monastery nearby).

Engomi

This ancient city, situated near Famagusta in Turkish Cyprus, was destroyed more than 3,000 years ago. But you can now visit an impressive 1sq mile/2sq km archaeological site that dates to 2700 BC. When it was excavated in the late 1800s, archaeologists found ivory, gold and bronze statuettes scattered among the stone buildings. Recognizable structures include a bronze-smelting shop and the town wall. Don't get it mixed up with a suburb of Greek Nicosia that is also called Engomi.

Karaman

This village in Turkish Cyprus is a picturesque reminder of what the island used to be. For a nice walk a trail leads from the village to St. Hilarion Castle, a huge ruined fortification dating from the time of the Crusades.
