Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia

4.3
#1 of 30 in Nature in Cyprus
With a recognizably carefree Mediterranean feel, Kyrenia Harbour makes you feel at home among its stone buildings and charming boats tied at the docks. Overlooking the 16th-century Venetian castle on one side and showcasing the dramatic Besparmak Mountains on the other, the harbor provides a surprising break from the hot and dusty capital city and its surroundings. Check out an array of specialty shops, cafes, and bistros, and look for clothes and spices at colorful Middle Eastern-styled markets. Stroll the cobbled streets and take in the views, or stop for a cup of hot Turkish coffee.

  • An iconic part of the Northern Cyprus. Only let down by the constant restaurant owners hawking their establishments. I suppose their forward "business development" strategy does contribute to the atmosphere. Great views of the sea and filled with all sorts of interesting boats.
  • Good harbour with boats and lots of restaurants round the edge... in good cyprus tradition. food is good all the way round and reasonably priced. We sat and had a meal while the sun went down. recommended for a look and something to eat.
  • What an amazing experience! This harbour gives you time to think about life. Its peaceful, the people are friendly and the boats are great. All the restaurant with seafood to choose from at your leisure.
  • It's become very busy with waiters trying to get you into their bar etc, lost some of the charm. Once you're in their restaurant you do become a bit invisible too, real shame. However, it's still a lovely evening view, and great for booking boat trips.
  • Very pretty, especially at night. Lovely views.. plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy them from!
