The northern coast of North Cyprus between Cape Kormakitis and Kaplica is a combination or sections with rocky beaches and stone beaches. Beaches here are quite unimpressive. This is mainly due to the mountain range which here runs parallel to the coast. The situation improves on the eastern coast of North Cyprus, where for instance in Salamis there is a nice sandy beach. In North Cyprus there are a number of mosques. Some have ben built from the beginning as mosques, others are former Christian which have been converted into mosques. The climate changes markedly between the northern and southern sides of the coastal mountain range. On the northern side the weather is usually worse with the northern side receiving a lot more rain. As a consequence the northern slopes of the coastal range are heavily forested, while the southern slopes are quite dry with little vegetation and tree cover.
