The ports in Cyprus are always busy with incoming overseas freight shipping, as well as short stay cruise lines.
Shipping Your Car and Belongings to Cyprus
It is easy to arrange overseas car shipping to Cyprus if you wish to bring your car with you. However, services for passengers who want to travel with their car are not so easy to find, although there is sometimes such a service from Italy.
Research and plan your overseas move of all your furniture and personal possessions to Cyprus. Otherwise, it may turn out to be costly and very stressful if it is not organized by a reputable and professional International moving company.
Booking a Cruise to Cyprus
If you are looking for a cruise to or from Cyprus, then you won’t be disappointed as there are several cruise line companies offering cruises to many destinations such as Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Syria and the Greek Islands.
Cruises are available for short trips of just a couple of days, to more extended trips of several weeks.
Arriving in a Personal Boat
You can arrive by sea into Cyprus in your boat, but you must use only the legal entry points of Larnaca port, Limassol port, Paphos port, or Latsi port.
Note: Arrival in Cyprus via any other port which is located in the Turkish occupied area of Cyprus and which is not under the effective control of the legitimate Government of the Republic of Cyprus, is illegal and must be avoided.
Lighthouses in Cyprus
Cyprus is a founding member of the International Association of Lighthouse Authorities. (I.A.L.A.). There are eight lighthouses located around Cyprus at Paphos, Cape Gata, Cape Kiti, Cape Greco, Cape Akama [Arnaouti], which are in the Government controlled areas, and Cape St. Andreas, Kyrenia and Cape Kormakiti, which are within the Turkish occupied area of Cyprus and outside the effective control of the Cyprus Ports Authority.
The lighthouses in the government-controlled area have all been modernized with photovoltaic systems, meaning they operate on solar energy, and are automated, thus no longer requiring lighthouse keepers. The Cape Gata lighthouse is the southernmost lighthouse in Europe.
