HOLIDAYS don’t have to be expensive. There’s a delightful spot in the Med where you’ll find a laid-back lifestyle – and prices that really help you to relax.
There have always been great deals in North Cyprus – it’s never been linked to the euro, which has pushed costs up elsewhere, instead embracing the Turkish lira.
Things are now better than they’ve ever been with the currency at an all-time low, £1 getting you six lira.
This is an island nation that retains the charm of the past while quietly gearing up for the future.
Whatever you fancy, it’s here: spas, wonderful restaurants, fascinating shops and colourful open-air bars – and all better value than ever before.
North Cyprus is still a place where a glass of wine can be had for £2, a beer for £1.50. You can lunch for £5, and have a feast of a dinner for £10.
A day pass at a top-notch spa will only set you back £20 – the same for an hour’s massage. Car hire is less than £20 a day.
