Endlesss Beaches, Ancient Salamis & Gothic Archi.

Magusa is one of my favourite location in Northern Cyprus. It's well known with its history, ancient remains, medieval buildings and fortification systems.Magusa is a city of special interest as it combines the beauty of the Mediterranean with the characteristics of an undisturbed city and historical remains that are hundreds or thousands of years old, allowing it to offer much more than just sea, sand and sun. Magusa is a historical tourist site that invites all visitors to Northern Cyprus to come and enjoy its thousands of years of history and incomparable natural surroundings.

Relaxing at Palm Beach

It's a must see attraction in sun bathing and swimming at Palm Beah with a mysterious scene of Marash at backside...
