Cyprus44.com founder Izzet Zorlu had a simple goal when he launched his site:  Become the top online destination for information about Northern Cyprus Holidays.

Cyprus44.com is now a comprehensive North Cyprus travel guide with more than 500 pages of unique information on North Cyprus sights in Kyrenia, Nicosia, Famagusta and Karpas, hotels in North Cyprus, flights to Ercan Northern Cyprus, property buying and other topics from border crossings, Turkish-Cypriot cuisine and culture and more.

Cyprus44 also offers online flight and hotel bookings in cooperation with one of the North Cyprus' leading travel agencies. The online booking engine allows you to get an instant quote for more than 10 select hotels in Kyrenia and Famagusta with very competitive rates.

The Cyprus44 Forums allow travellers to ask any questions to community members already living in North Cyprus and talk to travellers who have visited North Cyprus before. It is a good place to ask questions about North Cypress hotels, restaurants, bars or anything not found on information pages.

Cyprus44 News combines the most important news about North Cyprus in English. News is categorised and archived into local news, property related news, life and social news and news from Turkey and the rest of the world.

The Cyprus44 Blogs are about life in North Cyprus. Different writers muse about the new golf course, Sundays in Kyrenia, how to get your dog over to North Cyprus, and so on.

Why 44?
Everybody is curious to know how the site came to be named Cyprus44.  Below are a few reasons.

Because Ahmet counted 44 wild donkeys in his last trip to Karpas.
Because the temperatures hit 44 degrees celcius in August.
Because you may drive to Karpas from Kyrenia in 44 different ways.
Because the average cost of car hire during high season is approximately 44 Turkish Lira.
Because airport transfer from Larnaca to Kyrenia costs 44 British Pounds with 4 Pound tip included.
Because most tourists come from UK whose country code is 44.

Said Zorlu, "actually, we didn't have a reason to go with Cyprus44. We knew we wanted something short and easy to recall from memory. Anything other than digits was already taken. A single digit wasn't good enough and repeated digits sounded brand-like. Cyprus11, 22, 33 wasn't really suitable as it implied competition. 5 is half of 10 and above 5, it didn't really tick us! So, here you go.. Cyprus44".
