North Cyprus Places to See

North Cyprus Places to Visit and Things to Do

There is much to see and do in the Kyrenia area and in North Cyprus generally. A comprehensive list of sites and ‘things to do’ follows. Yes, in Northern Cyprus drive gingerly and always give way, it’s safer, but often, if you don’t ‘stick your nose out’, you could wait all day at some crossroads and junctions.

North Cyprus Shopping, Open Market

Wednesday is a Market Day. The open market in North Cyprus Kyrenia is located near the police station and sports hall. Turn right (east) at the crossroads, the market is on the right near to/sort of behind the Arçelik furniture store and the power sub-station.
You will find fantastic value on a vast range of goods, especially fruit, vegetables, cheeses, yoghurts, oils and vinegars, often brought in from the country by farming families, fish, footwear, clothing and all sorts of odds and ends.

Northern Cyprus Boat Trips

We suggest you book directly with an owner on Kyrenia Harbour. All day trips along the North Cyprus coast (east or west) include lunch and a chance to swim in a secluded bay, and costs approximately £20 per person. Hire of fishing or snorkelling equipment is extra. Most of the boats also have a bar.

North Cyprus Ferry

Fast or slow ferries operate from the New Kyrenia Harbour to Tasucu in winter. In the summer ferries from North Cyprus run to Alanya, Turkey. See a travel agent for details.

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia

Kyrenia Town is full of shopping, jewellery, fashion, ’hand made’, suits, dresses etc. There is lot to see and buy, but be careful, like most harbour towns, Kyrenia is built on a hill and the pavements are not uniform, high steps and irregular rough surfaces can be dangerous, so watch your step.
Kyrenia Castle is a North Cyprus highlight that should not be missed when in Kyrenia. You can visit a Shipwreck Museum inside, which is along with the castle fascinating.
Kyrenia Harbour is the jewel of North Cyprus.
Aqua Park in Northern Cyprus lies outside Kyrenia, on the main road, near Çatalkoy.
Water Sports can be practised at The Escape Beach, with a small charge.
Cinemas are found at the west in Lemar and in town as well. Latest movies are usually on, in English mostly, with Turkish sub-titles.
For Bird Watching in North Cyprus call the Bird Protection Society (KUSKOR) 0392 815 7337 who will be pleased to advise.
SCUBA Diving is one of the facilities that are best to book with the Scuba boat on Kyrenia harbour.
North Cyprus Bellapais Abbey outside Kyrenia is a must-to-see Gothic monastery. With its outstanding views, it is set in a lovely village of Bellapais.
St Hilarion Castle, a fairytale Lusignan fort towering high in the Kyrenia Mountain Range is an absolute must. A stunning evidence of North Cyprus history and chequered with stories cannot be missed.

North Cyprus Nicosia

Nicosia has not changed much since the 1974 intervention and is a North Cyprus biggest centre. Explore the old streets and the covered market, peer over to the other side from the bastion park near the Ledra Palace crossing, and enjoy the atmosphere of an ancient city.

North Cyprus Famagusta

Famagusta, an old fortified town too boasts cathedral converted into a mosque by Ottomans and is fascinating to visit.
Salamis, ancient Roman ruins near Famagusta is a gorgeous historical site, just cast your mind back …
North Cyprus Buffavento Castle can be reached by a rough ride or a bit of a walk, but what a view!!
Kantara Castle exists as one of the Crusaders castle trio in the Kyrenia Mountain Range and allows wonderful views on North Cyprus beaches.

Bogaz, a lovely coastal fishing village situated in Karpaz is lined with harbour cafes.
Walking Mountain Trails and Walking Tours are there to be practiced throughout North Cyprus. Kyrenia Mountains and Northern Cyprus cities with historical sites in their surroundings provide good condition for walking trails and tours as well.
Turtle Beaches in North Cyprus are visited by tourists to watch the Green or Loggerhead turtles. Turtle as a North Cyprus fauna symbol is embodied in many variations. You should check with the tourist office when is the best time to see the turtles, or you can speak to the Turtle Protection Society on 0392 815 2496. The Turtle Project site is on the old road east to Esentepe, near Kyrenia the egg-laying season is from June to October. There is a volunteer opportunity to help to protect these endangered species.
Karaman/Karmi is an Anglo/German village in North Cyprus situated above K’lou and nestled in Kyrenia Mountains, with a good pub, The Crows Nest, twee little streets and lovely gardens.

The Karpaz Peninsula

Karpaz stretches out to the southern shores of Turkey and is known as a North Cyprus sanctuary of unspoilt beauty. With lovely villages and beaches, hardly any people and stunning countryside it is a nice trip to make. Admire the Karpaz wild donkeys living free.

Five Finger Mountain

North Cyprus Bespamark (Five Fingers) Mountain can be reached if you drive east, past Arapkoy to the top of the hill. There is a good Taverna where you can park your car. Take a stroll and wonder at the beauty of North Cyprus mountains and surrounding areas. Across the road from the Taverna you will find the track to Buffavento Castle, which can be covered on foot or with a 4X4. Also, just a few yards from the Taverna, on the other side of the road, there is a breathtaking view of the Nicosia plain. From this Taverna you can also walk to The Herbarium which takes 2 hours. The trip provides you excellent walking and superb views, you can see lots of North Cyprus wild flowers (in season) and assorted orchids, herbs, shrubs and trees.

Look out for the deserted monastery and the view from Lovers Leap at about halfway, what a view!! Watch your step, it’s a sheer drop. There and back feels like a circular walk due to the contrasting views from both perspectives.
