This graticule is located at 34,32. Today's location

Cyprus has a Mediterranean coastal climate good for swimming and mountains high enough for winter skiing all on the same day. It's a popular tourist destination and there has been a huge population swap between Britain and Cyprus. This graticule is mostly sea water so a land hash is a bonus. Some of the more mountainous areas are not easy to access so it's not an easy square to go geohashing.

The military base at Akrotiri remains a British Sovereign Base, and as such forms part of the British Overseas Territory of Akrotiri and Dhekelia.
