The town of Iskele, also known as Yeni Iskele, is located on the south east coastal area of Northern Cyprus and on the main road which heads towards the Karpaz Peninsula area. It’s close to the harbour town of Boğaz, which is a very pretty old fishing village that still retains some of its authenticity whilst also being able to accommodate tourism. In the centre of Iskele you will find a small Dominican chapel called Ayios Iakovos, which was originally built around the 15th century and on the outskirts of Iskele the church of Panayia Theotokos, a 12th century domed building which has been restored in recent years and reopened to the public as an Icon Museum. Most of the icons in the church are from fairly modern times and from all over the Island. Iskele is also the venue for some important regional festivals ın North Cyprus such as the Iskele International Folk Dance Festival, normally held in June every year, featuring visiting nations competing for the best folk dance group title; and also the Iskele Festival which is held yearly in June/July time, and which hosts competitions, displays and plenty of outdoor cooking! The Largest village in Northern Cyprus Iskele is a well serviced village having a large selection of shops several banks, a clinic and municipal offices, with a weekly market selling local produce and household items.
Bogaz is located at the gateway to the Karpaz Peninsular. It is a working harbour, and is a delightful mix of both Europeans and local Turkish Cypriots. It has many restaurants and cozy bars, and is a delightful meeting place for all. Daily trips out to sea are offered by local boat owners where you can chance your luck with catching your own dinner. Ercan Airport can be reached within 40 minutes or so, and the historic city of Famagusta is a short drive along the scenic coastal road heading west. Bogaz offers a unique atmosphere in Cyprus, and is becoming a popular choice for both holiday and permanent residences.
Around the harbour can be found a first class selection of restaurants and bars where one can enjoy a pleasant drink or meal as you survey the activities in the harbour or watch the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean lap onto the beach. The area is blessed with a number of sandy beaches and is well located to benefit from some exciting developments that are either planned, under construction, or already completed.
The Famagusta region of Northern Cyprus has so much to offer. From the fascinating old walled city with its numerous shops, restaurants and bars then driving north past the ruins of ancient Salamis passing miles of sandy beaches coming to the picturesque fishing harbour at Bogaz and then onwards to the magnificent Karpaz peninsula where some exciting developments are taking place firstly at Bafra with 10 new themed hotels planned for construction and then on to the Karpaz Gate Marina. All this and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, yes, Famagusta seems to offer everything.
Famagusta is one of the most important, greatly fortified ports on the shores of the Mediterranean. To the north of Famagusta lie the fabulous ruins of Salamis. This one great city is believed to have been founded in the 11th century BC and after the influences of the many conquering nations, notably the Romans, the city was finally abandoned in 648 AD following the combined catastrophes of earthquake and raids by Arab pirates, when the population moved to Famagusta.
The spectacular ruins give a fascinating insight into long-lost civilizations and include a magnificent amphitheatre, Roman baths, a gymnasium and royal tombs. The mosaics are particularly beautiful. Ravaged by war and earthquakes, the old walled town is now only partially inhabited, but it contains some of the finest examples of medieval military architecture extant and the 14th-century Gothic-style Cathedral of St. Nicholas, now a mosque.
Restored and pedestrianised since 1996, the old town of Gazimagusa is a veritable outdoor museum and a real delight to explore, soak up the sunshine and people-watch in quaint cafes.
Just minutes away also lays the thriving new town which is becoming increasingly popular with locals and visitors alike as a fun-packed holiday destination. It's an excellent hub for eating-out, shopping and recreation.
Nowadays the city comes alive at night with trendy cafes, bars and restaurants offering international cuisine as well as the traditional Cypriot food. Clubs and restaurants have traditional music as well as performers traveling from further afield to satisfy the tastes of all age groups
The eastern coastal area of Gazimagusa Bay is one long, very fine beach with excellent facilities and clean, safe bathing and snorkelling. This harbour town is a fantastic destination for summer holidays.
The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is one of the few remaining “undiscovered” places of the Mediterranean. It has a diverse abundance of outstanding and unspoilt natural beauty from the crystal clear waters and golden sandy beaches to the heights of the pine clad mountains and Crusader Castles. With exemptions on income tax, import duties, corporation tax and very low council tax North Cyprus is a property investors’ haven. The past three to four years has seen an increase in foreign investment where we have seen investors from Russia, Israel, Turkey and the UK buying into property, land and large scale developments. With prices around half of that in the south of the island the potential for growth is considerable and real. Although there is an increase in the amount of development going on it is being strictly regulated by the government which is wary of degrading the coastlines and natural beauty of the country with ill-conceived construction projects. Developers are being forced to take the natural surroundings into consideration in order to maintain the integrity of the natural setting. Despite the recent price hikes in the North Cyprus property market, it still offers investors great opportunities to buy real estate at very competitive prices. One such area is the Karpaz region.
The Karpaz Peninsular is at the northern most tip of Cyprus, pointing out towards Syria and Turkey. The region has strict regulations on development and is a protected wildlife sanctuary where rare turtles lay their eggs on the golden sandy beaches, in excess of 300 species of birds pass through every year as they fly along one of the main migratory routes. Wild flowers are in abundance and the landscape is distinct from the rest of the island. It offers a haven of tranquillity for those who wish to explore the ancient monuments, walk or cycle on the mountain tracks or just relax on the beautiful beaches.
There are some new and exciting developments in this region and despite a global recession in property work continues on the planned developments mentioned below.
Bafra – New Resort hotels
Investments made jointly from the private sector and the government in the Bafra region are designed to boost tourism in the area. Plans for no less than 16 five star hotels, a shopping centre and enlarged desalination facilities will make this into the ‘Las Vegas’ of the Eastern Mediterranean’. The hotels will be designed along various themes with such names as The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Coliseum, The Kaya Artimis, Noah’s Ark etc.
The 750 bed Kaya Artemis is already completed as is the Noah’s Ark Hotel, both are impressive and it certainly makes a statement about the future of tourism in this part of Northern Cyprus. New roads are being built to reduce the travel time from both Kyrenia and Famagusta to this region. This touristic development is just a 15 minute drive from the Bogaz area.
As if that were not enough the new Karpaz Gate Marina is now open and operational. Located just north of the village of Yeni Erenkoy and just 30 minutes away from Bogaz. It is large enough for 350 plus vessels, including Super Yachts of over 65 meters. Restrictions on sailing along the territorial waters of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus have now been lifted which means yachts will sail to this new berthing spot, one of the few in the Eastern Mediterranean. This will further add value to properties and investments in the area and act as a money magnet with the super rich bringing their yachts and wanting to explore the region.
An island steeped in history
With a history dating back over 10,000 years the island of Cyprus is rich in history and culture. You will find remains that date back as far as 7,000BC as well as remains of crusader castles, ancient churches and Roman theatres and settlements.
