Re: Ercan airport: Public tranportation and sleeping
I can confirm that there is no regular public transport (i.e. buses) from the airport. You can possibly stop a minibus on th main highway from Famagusta to Nicosia, but that is quite a walk (several km). The best way to go is to take a taxi, although I don't know for sure how much it will cost.
>Where shall I sleep? I thought about getting back to the airport before sunset and sleep there. Not a good idea. The airport is pretty small, and the seats provided are likely to be very uncomfortable. Its best to stay in a hostel or hotel.
>Is it worth to take a bus to the sea just for half a day from Nicosia/Lefkosa? How much would it cost? Is public transportation reliable and safe?
Public transport isn't well developed in Cyprus. There is a very limited bus service, but that is not likely to be of much use to you. The seaside is very much like any seaside in southeastern Europe, there is nothing really special there. So unless you are desperate to go for a swim, I would stick with wandering through both sides of Nicosia. If you have time left, you could take a dolmus/shared minibus to Kyrenia, which has a lovely old harbour.
