Kalopsida (Greek: Καλοψίδα, Turkish: Çayönü) is a village in the Famagusta District of Cyprus, located 8 km east of Lysi. Famagusta is under the de facto occupation of Turkish Cypriots after the invasion in 1974 where the Greek Cypriots were forced out of their land by the invaders. Before the turkish invasion Kaloyida numbered 1023 inhabitants.
Kaloyidiotes (residents of Kaloyida) were known for being very brave and constantly carrying knifes on them, which was regarded as symbol of pride.
