Famagusta has close proximity to many great beaches. The nearest and therefore perhaps the most well-attended one is Palm Beach which is a few minutes from the old city walls and next to the ghost town Maraş. When the heat takes its grip on Famagusta, many residents and tourists head to this beach.
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. There are sun loungers, sun beds and umbrellas available to rent as well as a snack restaurant for light lunches.
