Cyprus Green Line

My question: is the Green Line open? So is it possible to go from North Cyprus to South free, and spend any days and return?

Is is possible to go by ferry (with motorbikes) from Turkey to Cyprus, to make a full Cyprus round trip and come back on the same way? Which ferry? From which Turkish city? How much is it for 2 persons and 1 bike? How long time does it take?

Is anybody in HUBB who is living in Cyprus? We would like to go to Cyprus in April, so any information will be fine!

Thank you

hi Szabi

if you are holding eu passport it is possible for you to cross between North of Cyprus (namely, Turkish Rebuplic Northern Cyprus) and South of Cyprus (namely Greek Controled part).

from Turkiye there are ferries between Tasucu (TR) and Girne(TRNC) everyday. go and visit:

Shipping in North Cyprus: FERGUN Shipping

for prices and time table. Tasucu is small place village in Mersin googlemap link:

Girne googlemap link:

and yes, you can come back using the same way to Turkiye and then to Europa.

hope this helps

Thank you

If you look at the Middle East forum under 'Car ferry from Israel', you'll see a post from a Hubb member in Cyprus called Antonis.

You could also try 'Contact a Community' if you look down the left sidebar on this page. Cyprus is listed.

Hope this helps,

Hi Szabi

I did a trip from UK to Cyprus exactly two years ago. Overland through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria and into Turkey. I used the ferry from a port called Tasucu in to Kyrenia in the north of Cyprus then had to cross to the south via the only vehicle crossing which was then open at the racecourse.

You can find some details of the trip here:


If you need any more info please let me know.
