Having visited Cyprus many times, I wished to comment that it is very easy to cross the border to both sides. Southern Cyprus (Greek) is very commercialised, busy and has a slight problem with crime. It is in the euro zone with all that entails. Northern Cyprus (Turkish) is under developed, not a lot of travellers, so you can find yourself virtually alone on lovely beaches, virtually no crime. It is out with the euro zone so your money goes further. I cant wait to return!!!!!

I have walked through Cyprus and stayed for some nights at Vasilias Nikoklis hotel. It is a small, clean, traditional and cheap hotel. I had a relaxing time there.

I have travelled to many countries both in Europe and Worldwide, but the moment I first set foot in Cyprus I felt at home. That was 15 years ago, and I have returned many, many times since. Finally 3 years ago I bought an apartment in Limassol and intend to retire there in a few years time. Cyprus is a beautiful island... a jewel in the Mediterrean.

Although not very backpacker-ish, Ayia Napa is a must! Just stepping out in the evening, you can feel the atmosphere wrap itself around you. And the beaches are amazing!
