Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia

4.3
#1 of 29 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. Work out when and for how long to visit Kyrenia Harbour and other Kyrenia attractions using our handy Kyrenia online travel route builder .

  • Lovely views of Kyrenia Castle. Many cafes. Prices higher than other areas. Definitely a place where Cypriots take a weekend stroll.  more »
  • Very nice city, very nice, not so invaded by tourist that one could fear it, but beware Nevertheless, the North of Cyprus is a country occupied by the Turks... It poses QD even a few questions...

  • Beautiful to wander round. Loads of offers for boat trips. Some just sightseeing others with a Mediterranean buffet. Loads of resturants to choose from, with fresh fish in coolers outside so you can choose. Most also sell meat dishes as well. A few gift shops around selling postcards, fridge magnets, bags, cups etc. From the harbour you can see the castle. A must see whilst exploring Cyprus.
  • Great place.. but don't get dragged in by the touts.. go where u want seat where you want.. not where they want you to. Turkey habits are here.. unfortunately
