Cyprus Ports Authority

The Cyprus Ports Authority (CPA) is a semi-autonomous government agency that is responsible for the supervision and oversight of the ports and port facilities of the Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus. Established by the Cyprus Ports Authority Law of 1973, it is located in Nicosia.[1]



CPA ports include Limassol Port and Larnaka, the industrial port at Vasilikos, Lemesos Old Port, Paphos Port, and oil ports at Moni, Vassiliko and Dhekelia. There is also a small CPA port at Latchi. The port at Limassol is the country's principal cargo port.

The lighthouses at Cape Greco, Cape Gata, Paphos and Akamas are under the jurisdiction of the Authority.

The ports of Famagusta and Kyrenia and the terminal at Karavostasi are under the full jurisdiction of the Turkish republic of northern Cyprus.[1]
