Things to Do in Famagusta

Once a quintessential Mediterranean seaside resort and one of North Cyprus’ busiest tourist towns, the sandy beaches of Famagusta were left deserted in 1974, when the island was divided. With Famagusta falling under Turkish rule, the Greek occupants fled en-masse, leaving an eerie ghost town and many of the seafront hotels, shops and restaurants still lie empty today. 

Not all of Famagusta has been abandoned though and strolling around the walled old quarter offers a glimpse into the town’s former glory. Dating back to the 13th century, the historic area is home to a number of key landmarks, including the medieval citadel of Othello’s Tower and the battle-worn St Nicholas’ Cathedral, now the Lala Mustafa Mosque.

1 Tour and Activity

WaterWorld water park is the largest themed water park in Cyprus, as well as one of the largest in the world. Located just outside of Ayia Napa, it features pools, water slides, an activity pool, a wave pool and various water rides spread over more than 100,000 square meters—all with a Greek mythology theme! On the Fall of Icarus, riders are shot up toward the sun before plummeting toward a plunge pool. On the Drop to Atlantis, riders slide down a 20-meter high slide with both audio and visual effects.

A huge wave pool covers more than 3,000 square meters, while the Lazy River winds through the park, providing a more relaxing experience. Waterworld has something for everyone and is welcoming to all ages, with several kids' areas designed for toddlers and young children.
