Highlight of our trip to northern Cyprus. We arrived early morning with plenty of water. the site is huge and there was hardly anyone there so most of the place we had to ourselves. So we could take photos without having loads of other tourist standing in front of us! You wander around freely and spend as long as you... More

A fascinating site dating back to 11th century bc and you can easily spend several hours wandering around here. There is quite a reasonable handout given when you buy your ticket but the interpretation boards are really in need of updating and perhaps being a little more informative. There is the potential for your visit to be under Cyprus's hot... More

My partner and I went to Salamis as part of a guided tour around Famagusta. We had a lovely morning wandering around the ruins with our guide who was very knowledgeable about the different parts of the site and we learnt a lot. It was amazing to walk around a city that is so ancient and see how everything would... More

The place is amazing you can see remnants of ancient buildings. You need hour or two for visit all these ruins and some of them are really in good condition. On the other hand the service is very poor. By the gate you meet guy who wants you to pay admission fee - I am not sure if it is... More

The ruins of the ancient roman city of Salamis are fasinating - you can just wander round the ruins getting an impression of how the old city would have looked. It is a pity there was little information given out when you brought your tickets. But the paths were well laid out and there were information boards all around telling... More

These ancient ruins are fascinating but I was glad that we had a guide with us as there is little information provided at the site.

Everyone told us to take plenty of suncream and water as there's no shade here - but we went on a wet Wednesday afternoon, so we had no problem and had the place to ourselves. It would benefit from more information - perhaps a guidebook but I definitely recommend.

Salamis Beach is beautiful..The water and sand is sooo clean. Facilities are very good and there is lots to do. Even if you are not staying at Salamis Hotel you are welcome to spend the day chilling on the beach.
