Some fascinating facts about İskele Long Beach and other holiday resorts in North Cyprus
The Long Beach Resort, with its magnificent villas and bungalows built along a wonderful golden sandy beach, is ideal for beachgoers. This is one of the few beach hotels in North Cyprus where you can sleep with the beach right outside your door at a reasonable price.
Combining the best of beach and hotel
The Long Beach Resort, which is more akin to an Asian beach resort hotel than a Mediterranean vacation town, combines the pure pleasure of sleeping near the sea with superb hotel services, all in one reasonable package. All within a few yards of your cool and comfortable apartment, you can relax by the pool, swim in the sea, or eat lunch in the restaurant with a view of the sea. The best part is that you can virtually walk out your door and into the dunes if you hire a beachfront property.
Mini villas with a view of the sea
Air conditioning, a neatly tiled bathroom with a shower, satellite TV, a little kitchenette, and a fridge are all included in each mini villa. Some villas are directly on the beach, while others are set back on the grounds, but they all have a little patio with seats where you can sit and enjoy the views, no matter which direction your villa faces. These low-rise villas provide exceptional value accommodation in an amazing beach position, with separate bedrooms and great views.
Famagusta Bay has a fantastic sandy beach
The Long Beach Resort beach is regarded as one of the greatest in North Cyprus by both locals and visitors. The dunes gently drop into the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea near Salamis Bay, making it an ideal spot for paddling, swimming, or simply relaxing on the sands. There’s nothing here to detract from the view of the waves, such as noisy beach bars or large hotel projects, so you can just relax and enjoy a relaxing beach vacation.
Safe swimming pools and sun terraces
You will never be far from a refreshing swim at the Long Beach Resort. Take a plunge in the hotel pool, which has a separate children’s section, after soaking up the sun on the poolside terraces. The pool is located close to the beach, so if you prefer sand to waves, you may have the best of both worlds within yards of each other. There is also a poolside bar and a beach bar, so you will never be far from a refreshing drink or food.
Breakfast and dinner buffets
Breakfast and supper are both provided as an open buffet, so you and your family can pick and choose from a variety of Cypriot and foreign foods. If you like to dine out on occasion, adjacent Famagusta, known for its massive defensive walls, has a large range of restaurants, cafés, and taverns.
A fantastic beach vacation spot for families
The Long Beach Resort is ideal for families with children, as you can walk from your villa to the beach and pool. The tranquil and relaxing ambiance of the Long Beach Resort is a big draw, and it continues into the evenings. Most families love strolling along the new coastal promenade, which includes a well-equipped play area for youngsters.
A protected patch of beach adjacent to the resort is where sea turtles lay their eggs, and guests can observe the eggs being buried by the mother turtle or the small hatchlings scrambling down to the sea during organized turtle viewing sessions during the season.
Take a 5-minute cab trip to Bogaz’s fishing harbor, where you’ll find fish restaurants and pubs
Ancient Salamis, once a mighty Roman port and now a perfect place for a day out exploring ancient gymnasiums, temples, and an irresistible attraction for kids, genuine Roman toilets, is just down the road. There is also a cafe and a great tiny beach where you can swim over the historic harbour walls. Hire a car and explore the Karpaz Peninsula’s natural terrain and wild donkeys to see a side of North Cyprus that most visitors never see.
Take a flight to either North or South Cyprus
You have the option of flying into Ercan International Airport in North Cyprus or flying directly to Larnaca in South Cyprus. Larnaca transfer times are roughly 1 hour and 10 minutes, and include a border crossing, whereas Ercan is only 55 minutes, with no potential border delays, but a longer flight time overall.
