Alagadi Turtle Beach, Kyrenia

(360+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Over 300 green turtles and a vast number of loggerhead turtles have made Alagadi Turtle Beach their nesting spot. The whole process of laying, cooling, and hatching turtle eggs happens between May and July. When the babies emerge from their shells, they have minutes to reach the sea; they do so by following the moon's reflection on the water's surface. Therefore, at this beach you won't find hotels, clubs, traffic lights, or any other sources of artificial light. Everything is dedicated to the turtles; and consequently the golden sand, low greens, and wildlife feel at home. Because of turtle preservation, people are not allowed on the beach during the night during nesting season.

  • Were with friends on this beach. Honestly, not even understood immediately that came at the scheduled place, until we saw the construction of masonry to protect from predators. We were in the season of ripening fruit. In the corner of the beach there is a palatochka in which there are several aquariums with little bugs, so the protagonists of this beach you will definitely see. If you will take the time to explore by car the next areas, reaching the plateau and leaving the car you will see the beautiful view from the tip of the island and quiet beaches.
