Some of the most exclusive beachfront residences are located in the Famagusta area which is a few kilometers out of Larnaca town. Before the 1974 Turkish invasion, Famagusta was the most popular seaside resort in Cyprus. Unfortunately part of this area is still under Turkish occupation, but the areas just outside Larnaca, Ayia Napa, Protaras, Paralimni and Ayia Thekla are situated in the free zone of the Republic of Cyprus. This area offers superb luxury residences in the most amazing locations. It is well known that some of the most amazing sea views are located in this area. Blue Flag awarded beaches are plentiful and usually within walking distance of these properties.
