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.
