Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia

4.3
#1 of 26 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.

  • WHILE VACATIONING or LIVING in NORTH CYPRUS will definitely take time and walk through the old Kirenijskoj fortress and the ancient port. Many interesting alleys and ancient buildings located near the port, is the former home of merchants and old warehouses, churches and shopping malls. The fortress itself is a miracle, you get a small courtyard and a total immersion in the middle ages. telling hard-feel better. here and smells and visuals and ancient walls-all evokes a feeling of eternity. nice look at the fortress and sea-thus saw her arriving pilgrims to the Holy Land and one hundred years and five hundred years ago

  • Bustling little harbour. Key destination alongside the castle for a visit to Kyrenia. Variety of eating establishments but probably better options a little further back from the harbour.  more »
  • Attentive nice located, charming countryside. Front the sea, back the fortress, da hiss life and activities on boats and in restaurants.

  • It is considered as the best-looking harbor in the whole Mediterranean. You should go up the castle and later, take a walk through narrow streets and see old and interesting houses. After you finish your trip in this small and cute place, you may take a taxi that costs about 30 Turkish Lira to Bellapais Abbey. It is not adviced to walk up there, but it is easier and takes about an hour to walk back to Kyrenia. You may ask for more details if you need.
  • Wonderful historic harbor town ... top choice for a day trip ... great shops, winding alleyways, restaurants and scenery including an old fort
  • Small but peaceful Harbour. There’s a good collection of restaurants. Food is really tasty, specially fish menu is great.
  • Beautiful harbour offering delicious local food & drink. Decently priced. Clean.
  • There's a very nice sea view and not huge amounts of people. If you want the best steak head over to the Six Brothers terrace restaurant and order the pepper steak, my recommendation.
