Alagadi Turtle Beach, Kyrenia

4.0
#1 of 14 in Outdoors in Kyrenia
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.

  • Very beautiful Alagadi-3. In May and June, when the snorkel, you can see giant tortoises, they have a breeding season. And in August-September cherepashata are born. A touching sight!

  • Not so much a dig at the turtles and the good work being done, but a note on man’s wider treatment of the environment. Loads of mini plastic debris along the shoreline of Turtle beach 1. Didn’t expect...  more »

  • We visited this beach for the purpose of turtle watching. All you have to do is book a session through the North Cyprus Turtle Project website, and if the time is right, you might have a chance to watch sea turtles nesting or baby turtles hatching. But be careful if you just want to go for a swim , the beach is closed from 20:00 to 6:00 due to the Turtle conservation project.
  • I stopped here to reminisce, had a snack which was OK. Staff friendly
