FAMAGUSTA

Famagusta is situated on the South East coast of Cyprus . The South East coast boasts two exceptional holiday resorts plus their satellite areas. Starting up the coast is Kapparis, a rugged coastline with tiny, secluded bays and is situated below Paralimni, the areas' live-in town and also the fastest growing in Cyprus . Here, life goes on after October with just about every service you'll need including banking, supermarkets, DIY and fashion shopping.

Heading South through Pernera, a tourist resort in it's in own right, is Protaras Area, a family resort with the most beautiful beaches and tranquil seas in Cyprus including the world famous Fig Tree Bay.

Just 5 minutes further is the idyllic Konnos Bay where tranquility begins, and is further enhanced at the adjacent Cape Grecko . A region of rocky terrain and National Park with its natural table-top rock, standing out, as the furthest South-Easterly point of the island.

Next door is Ayia Napa. Once a traditional finishing village and now the hive of a tourist resort that has everything from the Monastery, build in 1500 AD where people gather to celebrate local and cultural events all year round, to the fantastic beaches, the area's harbour and an unsurpassable night life.

Continuing along the inevitable expansion line to Potamos, meaning river, a tiny fishing estuary, where you can relax and enjoy fresh fish on sunny Sunday afternoons. From here is under 30 min. drive to Larnaca Airport and just one hour from our Capital Nicosia.
