This Geocache is situated nearby to the small island in Famagusta harbour which once housed the Governor. The island itself is close by to the closed off Ghost town of Varosha. Like the town, the island is a no go area.
Since 1974, entry to the district is forbidden to enter the area and as no one has inhabited the area and no repairs have been carried out, all of the buildings are slowly falling apart. Nature is reclaiming the area.
You can walk down to the nearby Palm beach and see the fenced of town in the distance but beware of taking photos as this forbidden.
