::: Varosha is a section of Famagusta | Gazi Mağusa | Ammochostos (North). This once booming quarter with elegant hotels and apartments was completely closed off by the Turkish army directly after the 1974 invasion and remains a no-go area today, a sensitive issue underlying all peace negotiations. The beach is accessible.
