Welcome to Famagusta (Gazimağusa) & the Karpas Peninsula
When you’ve recharged your batteries with the Karpas’ serene wilderness, turn back west to visit Ancient Salamis. This enigmatic window into the Hellenic world is the island’s most impressive archaeological site.
Just to the south is the fortified city of Famagusta where you can climb the ramparts to walk the city walls. The city's faded long-lost grandeur can be found in lanes filled with gently dilapidated houses that sit beside crumbling ruins of once-majestic churches.
Brimming with history and full of mesmerising natural beauty, this is by far the island’s most rewarding region to explore.
