Geography of the island
Kyrenia (Five Finger) mountain rangeThe geography of North Cyprus is characterized by a unique blend of mountains, plains, and beaches. The Kyrenia  (Beşparmak / Five Finger) mountain range, with its magnificent jagged limestone peaks, the highest of which is Mount İçova at 3,357 ft. runs along most of the northern coastline from a startling backdrop.

Forests in the Kyrenian mountainsTo the east of the island the mountain range loses height as it extends along the narrow peninsula known as Karpas, or more affectionately, `The Panhandle'.

It is here that the best beaches of Cyprus can be found, long wide empty bays of the purest sand that stretch for miles.

Cities and the towns
To the south of the Kyrenia range lies Nicosia (Lefkoşa) (population 39,000), the capital of North Cyprus, through which runs the boundary, or as it is called `The Green Line' separating the North from South Cyprus.
