Derinya beach, located close to the fenced-off city of Maras/Varosha is to be open to the public in two weeks time.
The beach was under the control of the security forces command and will open in August.
The decision to open the beach to the public was made by the leadership of the security forces and Famagusta municipality. However, the agreement only allows for Turkish and TRNC citizens to use the beach on presentation of their identity card.
Famagusta council will be responsible for managing the beach which will be open between May 15-October 29. The agreement to open the beach will be renewed every year automatically.
