About 15 mins away from the checkpoint is the town of Salamis. Well maintained archaeological site and amazing view from the top of the amphitheater overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Definitely worth the visit when you’re in Famagusta.

Visited as one of our stop offs as part of an organised tour. Huge site that includes a large amphitheatre, and lots of other very interesting things to see. To get the best out of it you really need a guide. Bit surprised about how...More

Great history of original town. Ancient ruins of town hit by earthquake, brilliantly preserved. Didn't visit town, just historic site

Highly recommend this site. We selected the hotel because it was so close. The entry was 2.50 euro per person and we brought a picnic lunch to have by the seaside near the site. Was very romantic.

Had an hour or so here, but could have done with say 3hrs to do it justice. Best sights are the Gymnasium, the baths complex, the water cystern, and the theatre.

Well, it's mainly remnants of a bigger place but it shows the richess of how it must have been. Worth a visit when around.

This was a good site to visit. The amphitheater was in great shape. The site could use more excavation but over all the site was done well and you could get a good feel for what it looked like in it's original day. Great outing!

A most interesting visit to Salamis. We visited with RSD and felt we should have had longer to visit these ancient ruins. The toilets get very busy and ladies need to be aware that they are likely to queue. Nd

Must see. Bigger than Ephesus. But only 3% of the city can be visit. The rest is under the earth. Even 500mt long inside the sea.

These Roman ruins are some of the best that we've seen. As with most sites in Cyprus they could do with some better signs, but well worth the visit. Don't just look at the ampitheatre and theatre, but spend the morning visiting the whole site:...More

It's about half an hour of pleasant walk along the beach. The problem is not that the way is not walkable, but you need to walk on sand pretty much so this may be a bit hard. You can also swim there if you preffer ;).
