Famagusta Coastal Resorts

The coastal region of Famagusta used to be one of the most popular seaside tourist destinations in Cyprus, before Turkish invasion in 1974. The district is now divided into the Greek controlled southern part, while the northern part is still occupied by Turkish forces. The Greek controlled area includes the towns and villages of Ayia Napa, Paralimni, Protaras and Ayia Thekla. The white sandy beaches and the crystal clear waters of these areas have been awarded Blue Flags for their quality and cleanliness. The area also includes Cape Greco which is a beautiful national park that is well worth visiting.
