How would you like to explore the hidden beauties of North Cyprus beaches?
Because the island is virtually engulfed in the sea, North Cyprus has a plethora of beaches. The majority of these beaches are public (state), followed by private (hotel) beaches, and, of course, how can it be without natural beaches that are not occupied by anyone? You will see beautiful yellow sand and clear emerald water wherever you go across North Cyprus. This is, without a doubt one of the most popular tourist attractions.
