  • They still exist, free-living wild donkeys in Cyprus! But to experience it, you have to drive only on the remote peninsula of Karpas in the hamlet East of Cyprus. There, the landscape remains still originally. There is no hotel complexes, for that much forest and to the aforementioned wild donkeys. Also the greatest by far sand beach of throughout Cyprus, the Golden Beach. All together an experience of a special kind, a superlative, that man not should miss!
