The Famagusta region
Bogaz 2 miles. Famagusta 13 miles. Salamis ruins 6 miles. Kyrenia 50 miles. Nicosia 30 miles.
Just 25km from Bogaz you'll find Famagusta, the old Venetian walled city with its famous Othello Tower. Today, Famagusta is a bustling town, an ideal base for exploring the east side of North Cyprus without leaving the comforts of town living behind.
10 minutes drive along the coatal dual carriageway lies the ancient Roman ruins of Salamis offering a great day out strolling through amphitheatures, market squares and villa's
The best part of a holiday in Bogaz or Famagusta is that the delights of the Karpas Peninsula are just a few miles' drive away. The Karpaz is a panhandle of land jutting into the sea, with lush green fields of tobacco, vineyards and groves of olive and carob trees. Keep heading east, and it changes into a spectacular rocky landscape where the grumpy Cyprus wild donkey is king, sharing the land with migratory birds, nesting sea turtles and a huge variety of native wildlife.
You are also close to some of the finest beaches in North Cyprus, and none of them will be even remotely crowded - the Karpas Peninsula has over 45 sandy beaches to explore! Unspoilt Bafra Beach is right on your doorstep at Bogaz, with no hotels or beachfront houses to disturb your day of sunbathing and total relaxation. At Famagusta, Glapsides Public Beach is popular with families, where youngsters can paddle safely in the shallow waters.
Head into the Karpas Peninsula to discover secluded rocky coves that can be yours for the day, or the wide sands of glorious Golden Beach. Backed by romantic sand dunes, chances are you'll be the only family on your stretch of this enormous sandy beach, unless you count the sea turtles laying their eggs in the sand!
There are several beaches within the Famagusta Bay area. The site does have an extended basic beach for quite walks and a lovely hidden sandy cove perfect for children. Bafra beach favoured by many locals is a 9km away and if you travel a little further to the Karpass there are miles and miles of golden sandy beaches - many completely destered of holiday hoardes.
A fabulous 18 hole golf course is located in Esentepe, which is a gentle 30 minutes drive away along coastal road. Ice skating and go cart racing available in Famagusta. Lots of local places of intrest nearby - Salamis ruins, Kantara castle with stunning views and picknic / BBQ / childrens play area nearby. Boat trips, Scuba diving, paragliding all available nearby.

Bogaz is a little fishing village with some restaurants dotted around its picturesque harbour. It also has some lovely patches of beach surrounding the village and is a great place to explore Northern Cyprus from.
There are many history surrounding Bogaz with the village being just five minutes from Strongylos Castle, a Byzantine watchtower with links to the Knights Templar. Venture into the Karpaz Peninsula, and you are going back even further in time. Here, prehistoric peoples built villages on the rocky peninsula long before the Byzantines added their elegant churches, now atmospheric ruins that you almost stumble across on your way down to a beach. Head to the far end of the Karpaz Peninsula to discover the Apostolos Andreas Monastery, where St Andrew arrived on North Cyprus and created a fresh water spring, said to have healing properties.
Bogaz bars and restaurants are busy with locals and tourists alike, and the supermarket has everything you'll need. If you prefer not to cook, try one of the excellent fish restaurants on the harbour such as the Bogaz Garden. Visit Kemalin Yeri for a traditional Turkish Cypriot lunch or The Moon for unbeatable Sunday roasts with the ex-pats!
If you want an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, stunning beaches and wonderful scenery then Northern Cyprus is definitely for you.
