    Then at the border he hands you over to mr hamed Done this tour many years ago and was surprised that you can now get out and about

    A unique and surprising place. There is only one entrance and Google Maps is not your friend if you are driving a hire car. It will try to take you up streets that have been closed off. Amazing to see the town more or less as it was when abandoned in 1974. Cranes and bulldozers rusting where they were left on building sites. An opera house, cinema, flaking signs on shopfronts. Depressing really, and thought-provoking. It's a bigger place than you might expect, so it's well worth taking the tour on a golf buggy that you will find right by the entrance. Cheap, and saves hours of walking in the sun.

    What an amazing place. I did not think that it would be on such a large scale. When you are used to curated sites such as exist in Europe it was quite a shock to have such free access (which might not be such a good idea for the ruins themselves) and such a lack of information and signage. If I were coming again I would print off a map and bring it as otherwise you are a bit hampered if you come without a guide as we did.

    If you are in N. Cyprus you really must visit Famagusta and its very beautiful walled city, wander the old buildings and ruins and soak up the history. There are good restaurants for the tired and hungry and some open markets for those in need of retail therapy. well worth the trip.

    Beautiful Gothic cathedral turned into an Ottoman mosque and as an architectural structure combining the best of both worlds. Pleasant welcome.

    This is an absolutely stunning part of Cyprus and well worth a visit. I would suggest you hire a little jeep: we had a Suzuki Ventura which is good for the roads and somehow adds fun to the trip. Drive gently, stop often, feed the donkeys (they are endearingly friendly), look in the churches, walk on the sand, swim in the sea and just take in the moment.

    We visited Famagusta, Somalis and Varosha ghost town and it was a lovely experience. The ghost town at Varosha is very sad to see as it’s a whole resort frozen in time 1974 following the invasion by Turkey. The buildings, shops and hotels are as they one were but now just derelict ruins. It’s tragic to think there was no good from the invasion other than to take possession of this beautiful place which must have been stunning. This is such a waste of a beautiful place and it’s very eerie walking round and imagining what it once was. There are Turkish flags all over the place, a very sad and wasted place. There is the most beautiful beach there which people were enjoying but the place itself is depressing. Somalis is very interesting on the other hand and here you can see original tiles and an old gymnasium and pool. Famagusta is a lovely area with a huge mosque and a lovely place with gift shops and restaurants. One I would recommend is Petek, a fabulous Greek restaurant and the most amazing bakery downstairs. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The surroundings are very pretty.

    Well worth the cheap entry fee. lots of artefacts dating back to thousands of years BC, a small cafe inside to get a drink.

    Spectacular castle ruin and if you climb the towers they offer lovely views across the harbour and the old town. Well worth a wander round.

    Beautiful beach with super turquoise water.
    Very quite with just few people (not many tourists here)
    Just I love it! You can relax swim and enjoy the sun!
    There is a lovely bar over looking the sea with food and drinks and it is possible to have sunbeds and umbrella!
    I really love this beautiful beach, happy to come here!

    of the town of Famagusta. This was the only section of the wall that we were able to get onto. View of the mosque was especially good.

    An interesting history: originally the Church of St Peter and St Paul built by Simon Nostrano from the proceeds of a single trading trip to Syria in 1358-69, then converted to Sinan Pasa Mosque after 1571. Under British rule it became a grain store an is now used for arts and crafts.
