Famagusta & Salamis Tour Cyprus In The Sun Holidays

Visit the beautiful coastal town of Famagusta and other important sites of interest nearby. Explore part of Varosha, also known as the “Ghost Town” and swim at one of the most beautiful beaches of the island!

The first stop is the Monastery of Saint Barnabas, founder of the Cypriot Orthodox Church. There you can also visit the Icon Museum of the monastery and the tomb of Saint Barnabas who martyred in the area in 52AD. Our trip continues with a visit to the ancient Greek city-kingdom of Salamis, founded around 1100 BC. Time will be given for a guided tour around the archaeological site of Salamis, which includes a beautiful ancient Greek theatre and marble columns, Roman Baths and a Gymnasium.

We then drive to Famagusta Old Town Center, where free time will be given for lunch (optional extra) and sightseeing. During your free time there, we highly recommend a walk around the Venetian Walls that surround the old part of the town and a visit at the Gothic Church of Saint Nicolas and Othello Castle, which is mentioned by William Shakespeare in his play “Othello” (optional extra).

Our last stop is at the beach of Varosha, also known as the “Ghost Town”. There you will have the chance to swim in the crystal-clear blue waters of the beautiful golden sand beach of Famagusta, whilst taking in the eerie sight of the abandoned buildings which have been desolate since the Turkish invasion in 1974. You can also explore part of the abandoned “Ghost Town” that opened for the public for the first time after 46 years in 2020.

On the way back we drive along the fenced, sealed-off area of the “Ghost Town”. Once one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Mediterranean, this area now remains abandoned and trapped in a time-lock.
