Kyrenia Harbour, Kyrenia

#1 of 30 in Nature in Cyprus
Water Body · Nature / Park
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.

  • Very beautiful place on a historic island of Cyprus in Mediterranean sea. On the banks of harbor there are many old buildings which were merchants offices and wear houses dates back and now converted into hotels. A historic castle is also situated nearby. You can enjoy nice lunch with plenty of seafood.
  • An iconic part of the Northern Cyprus. Only let down by the constant restaurant owners hawking their establishments. I suppose their forward "business development" strategy does contribute to the atmosphere. Great views of the sea and filled with all sorts of interesting boats.
