Sunny island in the Mediterranean Sea.The Karpaz peninsula of North Cyprus, since British times also called the ’panhandle’, is the most unspoilt and most beautiful part of the island of Cyprus. You cycle through traditional villages with churches and mosques standing side by side, passing almond, carob and olive groves. Hibiscus, Jasmin, Bougainvillea and Oleander blossoms, Orange and lemon trees accompany your tour. Beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches invite you every day for a swim or a walk! Millions of migrating birds can be seen, turtles come out of the sea and lay their eggs in the sand; maybe you will see a group of shy wild donkeys playing on the shore. In spring time North Cyprus is famous for its wildflowers, especially for its orchids. Further highlights are ancient Salamis, the world famous king tombs, the Saint Barnabas monastery, medieval Famagusta, the genuine Cypriote hospitality with its delicious food and last not least 340 days of sunshine.
