Accommodations: Whether you want to stay and play at the local casino or you prefer those quaint, romantic hotels where you can enjoy peace and quiet, you’re going to find you have a choice of hotels and villas to rent when you travel to North Cyprus. Rates can run anywhere from $100 per night to over $500 per night depending on where you choose, but you are sure to have many choices for the most comfortable beds and other amenities for guests on holiday.

Safety and Crime: The United States Department of State has stated that Cyprus is safe and has less violent crime than other European countries that are similar in size. Armed violence is very uncommon and one of the biggest issues that holiday travelers may need to worry about is heavy or slow traffic.

Language: Turkish and Greek are the primary languages but when you go out to eat or shop or just check things out, you’re going to find many English-speaking locals thanks to the tourism industry in Cyprus.

The Food: A meal in North Cyprus is not like anything you have head before. When you sit down, you can expect to have ten or fifteen dishes served per meal which allows a wide array of flavor! North Cyprus has so many restaurants throughout that you will have a variety of foods to choose from every day of your stay. As a matter of fact, you’ll find more than 300 restaurants that serve not only traditional Turkish foods, but you can also find Chinese, American, Irish, Indian and more.

It’s a wonderful place to visit, but an incredible place to see.

Culture and People: The people of North Cyprus are very hospitable and work hard to make sure their guests feel comfortable and at home. They are fun yet down to earth and place family time high on their list of things to do daily. As a matter of fact, you may find the people so hospitable that it makes you feel bad when you need to leave their place of business to venture out to another location after a meal or shopping spree because their kindness can be overwhelming to those who are not used to such friendliness.

As for culture, you’re going to find many Turkish customs including festivals and events held monthly, Turkish dress and fashion and even Turkish hospitality with welcoming strangers to their home.

Things to Do: Whether you are planning a trip for a week or even a month or longer, it is highly unlikely that you will ever run out of fun things to do. You can visit museums filled with artifacts or even ancient ships (fully restored) or castles where royal families lived. There are also Segway and walking tours of the shopping district and of course, great fun on the water! Surfing, swimming and boating as well as fishing, diving and snorkeling are always in season in North Cyprus.

Bars and Restaurants: With more than 300 local restaurants, you’ll never have to worry about finding somewhere to have dinner. You will however have to determine what type of food you want and where to go and with so many choices, deciding can be tough.

When it comes to finding a good bar or pub to have a drink you’re going to find that having a cold brew or a mixed drink is readily available on virtually every street corner you pass. Best of all, many of the local bars and pubs offer live music, karaoke and late hours to dance with friends or even sit and enjoy a romantic evening out on the town. You’ll find casual bars, upscale bars and great beer and people no matter which place you venture into!

    Of course, if you are personna non grata because you were foolish enough to buy a property there and shouted long and hard about it…you cannot return there.

    Moral of that being DO NOT BUY IN north Cyprus…aka Turkish Republic of Nationalised Corruption. but….and there is always a but…do holiday there and help the good people to make a living.

    Learn from the mistakes of so many who have had their villas stolen even though they do not owe anyone any money.
