Our evaluation by month
The island of Cyprus is located in the east of the Mediterranean Sea and is close to the Turkish coast. It is one of the European countries with the highest number of blue flags on the beaches, for its very clean crystal clear waters. The island of Cyprus is divided into two parts: the Republic of Cyprus to the south with a Greek majority and member of the European Union (the one interested by the tourists who visit it), and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus belonging to Turkey. The two territories are divided by the so-called green line, a demilitarized area in 1974 that crosses the capital Nicosia dividing the Turkish neighborhoods of the Greeks and is 180 km long.
