North Cyprus Entertainment
The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is not recognized by many
other countries and is not a member of the Olympic Committee. In
addition to this, the Greek Cypriots have imposed an embargo on
many sporting venues and events. Accordingly, although a lot of
countries break the embargo, it makes international competition
impossible for North Cyprus.
There are several official camping sites in the kyrenia and famagusta areas which offer services such as washrooms, toilets, restaurants, bars, etc. However the more intrepid visitor may wish to venture out into the wild where there are no such facilities. There are no restrictions on such activities except that lighting fires in forest areas is an offence.
