We highly recommend taking advantage of the clear blue waters and try scuba diving in North Cyprus.Food
A typical Cypriot dinner will start with meze (which means “mixture”), which consists of many small dishes with a little of everything followed by main dishes that are mostly meat-based, and end with dessert and traditional locally brewed coffee. Fish in Cyprus is often freshly caught and worth experiencing – you might well be invited into the kitchen to choose from that day’s catch.
If you are feeling more adventurous, why not try a North Cyprus Taste Tour or even a Cooking Workshop and truly learn the flavours of our lovely island?Culture
Cyprus' long history dates back to 7000 B.C. and has collected a very rich and wide cultural tradition.
In Cyprus you will still find many places where traditional arts such as embroidery, pottery, basket weaving, wood carving and silver weaving are still practiced, and some of them might be more famous than you think!
