The place is very beautiful and due to lack of funding by Turkey is still in it’s original natural form since early 70’s. The development of the North part of Cyprus is quite slow thus food, stuff and hotels are a lot cheaper. People are a bit undeveloped too compared to South but the place is really nice.
On a side note, Flight companies don’t fly there because the Northern part of Cyprus is illegally under Turkish control since 1974 (Turkey invated and occupied part of the island). Due to this no other countries recognise this part of the island as a legal land and thus it is illlegal to fly directly to that part of the island under human rights law. That’s why to get there you have to go through Turkey as is the only country (plus 1-2 more, friends of turkey who don’t mind not complying with human law) who recognises that part. Another option is to fly to South Cyprus and then cross the border to the North of the island if you want by showing your passport on the border.
