Cheap holidays in North Cyprus

Cheap holidays in North Cyprus

If you’re on a bit of a budget but are still looking for a summer holiday that won’t leave you wishing that you’d just stayed at home, then cheap holidays in North Cyprus are an excellent option.  Something of an untouched jewel – ‘the way the Mediterranean used to be’ – mass tourism has yet to come crashing down on the island like it has elsewhere in Europe.  As a result, the price of all the holiday extras, as well as the holiday itself, are excellent value for money.  North Cyprus is also better value once you get to your destination – the local currency is the Turkish Lira so it is a much cheaper option than somewhere like Spain or Ibiza where the Euro is used.

Cheap holidays in North Cyprus don’t have to mean a one-room apartment with no windows.  The island is now firmly on the tourist map so there are plenty of package options and there are some fantastic last minute, advance booking and online discounted deals available.  A number of the hotels also offer all-inclusive packages, which can considerably bring costs down.

The areas of the island that offer the most choice are Kyrenia and Famagusta, where you are most likely to find accommodation to suit your budget.  Kyrenia has a beautiful harbour and plenty of shops and supermarkets to stock up on self-catering supplies, as well as restaurants and cafes at all ends of the scale.  Famagusta is a historical centre and has some excellent beach hotels that offer great value for money for the holidaymaker on a budget.

In addition, many of the activities available in North Cyprus are free – from the fantastic hiking, to the range of historical sightseeing destinations and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters around the island.  You will also find some of the best, most unspoilt beaches in Europe here, open to everyone whatever the budget!
