Iskele is a synonym for a great holiday and the most beautiful sea sunsets! The Cypriots themselves jokingly call the city the future of Miami and there is some truth in this. 10 years ago there was nothing here but a small village. And now it is a new modern area, which is actively being built up with resort-type complexes.

The coastline of Iskele stretches for 25 km. Here is the coast of Long Beach with some of the most beautiful beaches of the island. A gentle entrance to the sea, golden sand, developed service and entertainment infrastructure — what else is needed for a full rest and life?!
The surroundings of the city are famous for a large number of attractions. Here is the ancient city of Salamis, which was once the largest among all the Hellenic cities. There were a gymnasium, Roman baths, a marble pool, antique columns and sculptures, an ancient amphitheater with excellent acoustics, which could accommodate up to 1,500 spectators and has been perfectly preserved to the present day.
Between Engomi and Salamis is the monastery of St. Barnabas. This is one of the places of Christian pilgrimage on the island of Cyprus. Now it is an inactive religious object, but a museum has been opened here, where you can get acquainted with a collection of icons and other ancient artifacts.
Today Iskele has become a fashionable resort in Northern Cyprus thanks to the rapid construction of residential complexes along the seashore. The coast of Long Beach is gaining new advantages every year: These are fitness zones with outdoor playgrounds, and a well-maintained beach with umbrellas, sun loungers, bars and restaurants. Apartments in Iskel are in high demand for buying and renting.
