It was definitely moving to see the deserted land with your own eyes rather than just reading about it. I do hope for the Cypriots that this divide can be sorted. The view point is well worth the visit to see a piece of history...More

You might get the chance to talk to people whoms houses are just around the corner from the fences. Such an amazing sharing of thoughts and feelings.

The beach here is very nice. The water is clean although the toilet was broken last time and there are only 2 changing rooms. But you can observe the Forbidden city from here.
