The island of Cyprus is located in the northeast of the Mediterranean sea at 34° 33′ – 35° 41′ longitudes and 32° 17′ – 34° 35′ latitudes. The total area of the island is 9,251 kilometer squares. Its location is of strategic importance in the Eastern Mediterranean and its undisturbed nature and beautiful bays make it one of the most desirable places to be.

Located in the north of the island, North Cyprus stands out with its clear waters and clean air. This is where you will find the best beaches of the Mediterranean. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), visited by over 1 million tourists every year, provides a life of calm thanks to the Mediterranean culture.
