Towns and Districts in Northern Cyprus

Lefkosa(Nicosia)   No4 Choice

Lefkosa is the capital and its situated inland.  In the capital the politicians conduct their business of government and all the main buildings associated with it are here.  The green line border crossings at Metehan  and Leda Palace permit access from North to South easily.  The south is popular for shopping items which many expats may be used to but can’t find in the North and they have familiar highs street brands such as Ikea, Next, Starbucks, M&S for example.  Many of the top Northern Cyprus retail outlets have their flagship stores in Lefkosa and so do the manufacturing and commercial businesses.  There are outdoor markets and bazaars, hand crafted goods and art gallery’s.

Arguably Lefkosa especially in its outer districts are a bit cheaper too than living in a coastal town where tourist prices can have an effect on some products. Properties are cheaper to buy or rent and investment returns tend to bit lower than Magusa (Famagusta) or Girne (Kyrenia).

Girne (Kyrenia)

Girne (Kyrenia) No1 Choice

Kyrenia and Districts are extremely popular with expats living here.  It’s most definitely a hotspot.  Many restaurants, bars, supermarkets have set up especially to cater for the expat and tourist trade.  Real estate values are particularity more a premium here because of its impressive coastline and tourist attractions, spas, casinos, nightlife and lavish hotels.  There is the new and old harbour with boat excursions and party hire available.  Plenty of activities including horse riding, jeep safaris, para gliding and water sports (jet ski hire, parasailing and scuba diving to name but a few).  In Lapta and Alsancak (2 districts of Kyrenia) there are sports venues such as Archery and Ten pin bowling and in every district there are cinemas and theatrical and classical music shows at various amphitheaters some dating back to Roman times.  Up in the mountains there is the beautiful and picturesque village of Karmi.  Stunning views out to sea and cool breeze Karmi where one can look out and see practically the whole of Northern Cyprus. Karmi has a large British Expat population with its cafes and bars and an old fashion pilar box from the days of the UK empire.

Magusa (Famagusta district)  No2 Choice

Magosa has some of the most spectacular natural beaches anywhere on the island of Cyprus, golden sand and touched by bull dozers and construction.  Iskele Karpaz regions of Famagusta are rich with wildlife, birds migrating from Africa, Eastern Europe and the Middle East rest here on their way westward and back.  Marine turtles and wild donkeys Famagusta has untouched natural beauty to explore.  There are many historic sites too dating back centuries of Cypriot history.  It’s relatively close coastline (shortest point 153km) facing Jordan, Isreal and Iran its also popular with tourists out for a weekend break.  House price are very good and investment opportunity in realty is growing fast.

Iskele No3 Choice

Iskele is a popular tourist destination. The people are kind and enthusiastic about cultural and artistic events. Locals and visitors alike remain up till the crack of morning at Iskele’s municipal park, singing live music and reminiscing about the good old days in North Cyprus.
