Northern Cyprus Magic
Northern Cyprus is one of those rare jewels, a beautiful place that is bursting with intriguing antiquity and a rich cultural history.

You can explore the pine-clad mountains, visit one of the ancient monasteries or relax by the fishing boats in a charming little harbor.

Averaging 300 days sunshine a year, with August as the hottest month, mean temperatures range from 10 degrees C in January & February to 36 degrees C in the July & August.
The island of Cyprus has a long and varied history, ever since the first settlers came to the island in around 8500B.C. The abundance of copper and timber on the island, combined with its position in the middle of the major trading routes made Cyprus irresistible to a whole range of foreign powers, including the Phoenicians, Assyrians, Persians, Egyptians, Greeks and Ottomans.
From 1571 to 1878 the Island was ruled by the Ottomans until they leased its administration to Britain. Independence was granted in 1960, but after Greek Cypriot and Greek military coup in 1974, Turkey was forced to intervene to safe guard the interest of the Turkish Cypriots. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus was subsequently proclaimed in 1983.
The warm climate in North Cyprus means visitors can enjoy beautiful flowers all year-round, making it a veritable botanic haven. In the autumn and winter golden-yellow oleanders swathe the hills, whilst multi-coloured anemones and crocuses appear before Christmas. But it is in late winter and spring that the island blooms into a rhapsody of colour with the orchid family and cherry-red poppies taking centre stage.
