This site is just north of Famagusta. The site has been influenced by a number of civilisations e.g. Greeks, Persians, Romans, Byzantines and Christians. The baths, amphitheatre and gymnasium is typical of Roman influences

Most fascinating area to wander for very little entrance fee. Over a vast area but not all visible. Lovely to see some ancient monuments among all the modern life.

It's about half an hour of pleasant walk along the beach. The problem is not that the way is not walkable, but you need to walk on sand pretty much so this may be a bit hard. You can also swim there if you preffer ;).
