Cyprus is a modern island nation that exemplifies an essentially Mediterranean character.
North Cyprus has managed to remain immune to the fast changing pace most of the world has seemed to adopt. Here you will not find the ‘usual’ shops or fast food restaurants that seem to have popped up on every street corner in other parts of the world.
Here in North Cyprus, time has stood still — in a good way of course. Discover a calm island Mediterranean paradise with undisturbed landscapes, villages, and beaches.
Life here is at a more relaxed pace which is ideal when you wish to get away from a busy, work filled, traffic jammed way of life — even for just a short time.
