Cyprus is the most oriental Mediterranean island. It is situated at the cross point of 35°N latitude and 33°E longitude. Tucked into the far south-eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea, only 44 miles from Turkey, 64 from Syria and 211 miles from Egypt, it lies on the frontier between Europe and Asia, Christianity and Islam.
Cyprus is divided into two as Turkish Side (Northern Cyprus) and Greek Side (Southern Cyprus). Riverside Holiday Village is on the Turkish Side of the island. About 200,000 people live in this small country, which is only 120 miles from east to west and about 15 miles from north to south. As shown on the map below, Riverside is only 9 kilometers away from the touristic Kyrenia town and 46 kilometers away from the Ercan Airport, situated between the Kyrenia Mountains and blue waters of Mediterranean.
