Cyprus Ports Authority   

Strategic Location

The island of Cyprus is strategically located in the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean basin, at the intersection of major international and regional shipping lanes.

Such a location has made the Cypriot ports a natural place of call for vessels sailing in and out of the region. Thus, inspite of shipping consortiums and the relatively small size of the external trade of the country, some 100 different lines service Cyprus regularly, providing wide, regular and frequent connection between the island and the rest of the word.
