With its ancient ruins, unspoilt beaches and remote hiking trails, North Cyprus remains one of the Mediterranean's best-kept secrets. For £389 per person, find out why Rough Guides named it in their Travel Hot List for 2013 -- this 38%-off deal from Cyprus Paradise includes transfers and a half-board upgrade.
Spend seven nights at the Long Beach Resort, a beachfront collection of villas overlooking Famagusta Bay on the island’s eastern coast. The old Roman city of Salamis is three miles away and the city of Famagusta itself, with its "warren of narrow streets" (Daily Mail), is roughly a 20-minute drive away.
The offer includes accommodation in a private villa. The beach on which the resort is set is a nesting place for loggerhead turtles, and with hatching season between August and September, you might be lucky enough to see them.
Facilities include a swimming pool, a restaurant and two bars. Plus, with the pound currently so strong against the Turkish lira (the local currency) you'll get more for your money.
Breakfast and dinner is included in the half-board upgrade. Flights are from London Stansted on select dates October-November with 20kg checked baggage. It is an extra £60 per person to depart from Manchester on select dates in August and September. Click here for a full list of dates and prices.
