Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia

4.4
#1 of 17 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.

  • The port of Kyrenia. Small, on the one hand, based on the massive Venetian fortress, the other rocks of the Bay a small port. Possibility of walks, eating in cafes, choosing local trips. In the area of bus stops/dolmuszy to the nearby village and hotels. At the top of the Museum a little further small church. In the streets, leaving a lot of souvenir shops, etc. Cool eatery 6 brothers, to have boats trips, etc. Teo Manager very friendly, communicative and helpful person. RECOMMEND.

Where to stay in Kyrenia

Northern Cyprus' most popular tourist destination offers an assortment of accommodations. It's a good idea to remain close to the beach, as this is where most of the Kyrenia's bars, restaurants, and shops are located. Transportation is somewhat lacking and unreliable; however, a bus connects the city center with beaches in the west. For a luxury stay, choose from numerous four- and five-star hotels, several of which boast seaside locations. If you're planning a longer stay, consider renting an apartment or villa.
