Free Camping in Cyprus

There are numerous opportunities to free camp. In the winter months (Oct.-April) you will be restricted to the coastal regions becauseof the cold weather in the mountains. (Mount Olympus is over 6000ft. in height). At present Cyprus has not yet caught on as a destination for winter motor caravanning.
