Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia

4.3
#1 of 28 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 .

  • This is the place where you want to spend a day. Roam around in this friendly harbour. Take the restaurant of your choise. Great fish and seafood restaurants. Go to all the small shops nearby for clothes, shoes and more. also plan a walk to the castle.
  • This is one of the nicest places in Cyprus. It takes about 30 minutes to drive from Nicosia, and it's challenging to find a parking spot. A must see is the Kyrenia castle with all museums located inside and having a drink or a lunch after in the harbour. Service in most of the harbour restaurants need improvement as the staff is not local and needs some training. Prices are similar to the rest of Cyprus.
