Campsites in Cyprus

If you love the outdoors, then camping in Cyprus is an activity you should try out.
Although camping isn't as popular among visitors to the island, we highly recommend it. It's another kind of experience that - if you 're up to it - will allow you to have a great time.

There are camping sites by the sea and camping sites in the picturesque mountains of the island. Troodos has three camping sites where camping is allowed for a small fee per overnight stay. The sites offers basic facilities such as barbecue sites, potable water, benches, tables and washrooms.

Let's go Camping!

Within the framework of the efforts to improve the opportunities for recreation offered by forests, the Forestry Department has developed, and has been continuously improving, a series of recreation facilities such as picnic and camping sites, nature trails, view points, bicycle paths, visitor centers and botanical gardens. These works are funded from the state budgets and recently from the Rural Development Plan.

The picnic and camping sites, started to be created since the 1950’s. Today there are 40 picnic and 5 camping sites in the state forests of the government controlled areas of Cyprus.

Camping sites offer corresponding facilities such as camping places, parking and sanitary facilities, drinking water, tables, barbecues and children playgrounds while in some of them electricity, baths and kitchens are also provided. A small fee is charged for their use. The fee for the Forestry Department’s camping sites is specified in the official pricelist of the Department.
