Bogaz

Although Bogaz is a small town, it is a lively place, and a home to a beautiful harbour, a few small hotels and fish restaurants located on the harbour. It’s a nice place to visit for the day and Bogaz has some nice little beaches to enjoy on either side of town. The quay at the port is also a bustling little place with nice manicured gardens which are a delight to visit.

In the evenings Bogaz comes alive with local music and entertainment to keep visitors busy and the locals often come down to walk along the harbour and to discuss the day’s events, meet with family and friends.

As a tourist destination, the town can cater to most people’s appetite – be it water sports, boat trips, rent a car or go on a guided walk, whatever one is looking for. It’s a nice place to stay if you want to be a little out of the way of the larger cities, but within reach of plenty to keep you occupied. Bogaz is also a great place to have as a base if you want to explore Karpaz Peninsula, or like to travel south to visit Famagusta.

The nearby town Mehmetcik is also a great place to visit with its popular annual Grape Festival which is usually held in August. Another discovery on the road from Mehmetcik to the village Sazlıköy is the small Byzantine church of Panagia Kyra built around the 500’s and the area is also home to the ruins of an ancient Roman city.
