A Rough Guide to Northern Cyprus
Crossing into Turkish-controlled Northern Cyprus feels like time travel – before the rise of jam-packed beaches, gut-wrenching prices and overcrowded landmarks. But crossing is the keyword, as Cyprus has been divided by the infamous demilitarized Green Line since 1974.
We sent our videographer Colt St. George to explore all the secret beaches, laid-back villages and serious adventure potential this off-beat Mediterranean enclave has to offer.
Colt went to Northern Cyprus with Intrepid Travel.

10 Reasons Why You Need to Visit Cyprus
Get more Tips here!
Divide your time between the island’s rich cultural history and beaches so beautiful you’d be hard-pressed to find their equal anywhere else. There are dozens of reasons to spend some time bumming around Cyprus; here are some of the most compelling.
1. It’s Bright and Sunny All Year Long
The island of Cyprus averages about 326 days of sunshine a year. That means that even in the dead of winter, you’ll be greeted by bright sunshine pretty much every day.
2. Beaches of All Kinds
Cyprus is home to a variety of different beaches. Rocky inlets and white sand beaches are scattered across the island. Even better, no matter where you drop your beach towel, you’ll have the opportunity to wade into the cleanest water in all of Europe.
3. But It’s Not All Beaches
Cyprus is also home to Mediterranean forests that house some plants that can’t be found anywhere else, the Cyprus cedar and the Cyprus oak among them. More than 125 local plants can be found in the island’s lush forests.
4. Hit the Town and Have a Blast
Each one of the island’s six, large cities has its own nightlife and each one is worth checking out. Will you hit the clubs in Limassol or push it to the limit in Ayia Napa. Every flavor of nightlife in Cyprus is a ton of fun; all you need to do is find the one that’s right for you.
5. The Food Is Amazing
Halloumi cheese is a delicacy. Cyprus also does its own version of souvlaki (which is tasty grilled meat and vegetables). For a snack, stop and grab a Koubes — it’s basically a hush puppy stuffed with minced meat and spices. There’s really no end to the rich, delicious offerings on the tiny island.
6. The Booze Is Incredible, Too
The national drink is known as a Brandy Sour. The cocktail is a heady mix of Cypriot brandy, lemon squash, some Angostura bitters, and a splash of soda water. If you fancy wine, Cyprus is home to the world’s oldest wine, Commandaria.
7. You Can See the Whole Island in One Trip
It’s possible to set up camp pretty much anywhere on the island and then take short day trips to see whatever tourist spots you’d like to see. Nowhere on the island is more than 3 hours away from anywhere else, so you’re always near wherever you want to be.
8. Cyprus Is Very Safe
Cyprus is considered extremely friendly. Sure, in the urban areas you have to be on the lookout for a small amount of expected crime (pickpocketing, that sort of thing), but Cyprus is still considered one of the safest destinations in all of Europe.
9. ‘Quaint’ Doesn’t Begin to Cover the Architecture
The towns and cities that dot the island of Cyprus are a thrill to simply walk through. If you do manage to find yourself winging your way toward Cyprus, make sure to spend some time simply walking around. You won’t regret it.
10. Birthplace of the Goddess of Love
Any fans of Greek history might recognize Cyprus as the reputed birthplace of Aphrodite. During the goddess’ hey day, her chief temple was located in Paphos, the town near which she supposedly sprung from the foam of the sea.

ALL INFO HERE!!
Hey guys! I've just come back from my first ever trip to Cyprus and I'm so excited to show you what I got up to whilst I was there. I stayed in Girne/Kyrenia for those who are interested and I would highly recommend going there one day. It's such a beautiful city and there's so much to do there.
I just want to quickly apologise in advance for any shaky footage. This was my first attempt at vlogging and considering all of the footage was taken on an iPhone 6, I think it turned out pretty good.

Nicosia / Lefkosia, Cyprus - the Last Divided City in Europe - Tourist Attractions
The capital of Cyprus Nicosia or Lefkosia in Greek remains the last divided city in Europe. Since the Turkish invasion of Northern Cyprus in 1974, the city has been divided between the Republic of Cyprus and the unrecognised Republic of Northern Cyprus (under Turkish control). Both parts are separated by a buffer zone or green line which remains uninhabited to the day. To visit the Turkish side of the city, you have to cross at the checkpoint in Ledra Street, one of the main shopping streets in the center of Nicosia. And so I did. Nicosia is a relatively small city and most of the major tourist attractions on both the Greek and Turkish sides can be seen in just a couple of hours. So check out what you can expect as a tourist in Nicosia and don't forget to like the video, if you have enjoyed it!
