When the heat takes its grip on Famagusta, many residents and tourists head to the beach. Famagusta is a big city with close proximity to many fantastic beaches. The nearest, and therefore perhaps the most well-attended is Palm Beach which is a few steps away from the old city walls.
Arkin Palm Beach Hotel is located right on the beach; here you can enjoy a good lunch or a refreshing drink on the hotel terrace overlooking the sea. The hotel also has a pool for those who prefer it to the sea.
On the beach there are sun loungers and umbrellas available to rent. There is also a snack restaurant for light lunches. Right next to Palm Beach is Varoshas abandoned hotels, an odd attraction and a sad reminder of what once was.
Palm Beach is open to the public to visit any day of the week. The bathing season in Cyprus is long, so hundreds of people come here to enjoy the crystal clear turquoise waters!
