So interesting. View is OK but you can get a better view by going over the boarder to North Cyprus. 6 euros to hire binoculars for two adults and two children.

Went there on Sunday and unfortunately it was closed. Ghost town is visible anyway from the top of the hill, but inside they have binoculars for free. Entrance is free of charge.

It was definitely moving to see the deserted land with your own eyes rather than just reading about it. I do hope for the Cypriots that this divide can be sorted. The view point is well worth the visit to see a piece of history...More

This was my second visit to the cultural centre of occupied Famagusta. The drive from Pissouri is tedious but once there the experience is good. Standing on the roof of the cultural center you can see into the DMZ and the homes and holiday resorts...More

You might get the chance to talk to people whoms houses are just around the corner from the fences. Such an amazing sharing of thoughts and feelings.

The beach here is very nice. The water is clean although the toilet was broken last time and there are only 2 changing rooms. But you can observe the Forbidden city from here.

Not sure about Jet2 sorry. This is just a house with a cafeteria/bar that over looks the "no go" zone. All you need to do is google Famagusta Viewpoint and follow the directions.
