Not much to see if your snorkelling Iím afraid! The Karpas is lovely but there are hardly any fish to be seen there. If you want good snorkelling Northern Cyprus isnít really the place in my opinion.

Can't get on that one at work Nige!



I am sure there are fish but we took our snorkels with us and did see some fish, didnít see any at the Karpas tho. Maybe we didnít go far enough out?

There's a lovely beach next to the Salamis Ruins - not sure of its name. Great for kids and there is a beach cafe and toilets.

I agree that beach is superb. I was there last week but unfortunately everything appears to be packed away on the beach now. Needles to say the litter was starting to build. Hopefully it will be removed. The cafe is still open though.

Chessman - we have only been to that beach once and nothing was out then but nevertheless we were the only people on there and it was beautiful - well worth it. If you have your own beach chairs like we did take them with you and you could end up on the beach all by yourself!!

Agree ,it was the nicest and cleanest we saw, kids would like it as well.beach is free and loungers could be hired. .We wouldnt have known about it if hadnt gone to see the ruins, beach is almost part of them. All in all a great day, recommend it, especially to history buffs.Ruins were excellent.Beach and cold drink afterwards welcome on what was a hot day.



Anyone who hasnt been ,please go, as the entrance fee helps with the excavations.

There are details and pics on this BB in the North cyprus guide.

I think that beach may be Calipsides. Friend and I were there in July

Very safe for children, but it was very hot then. Taner at S.M told us about it.

Lived in Salamis in 2000 while working at E.M.C & used to swim on

beach there too, which was sandy, and close to ancient harbour sunk into

the sea.
