Kyrenia ©
Famous for its natural port and Byzantine castle, Kyrenia is not only a lovely old Venetian town, but also the most visited tourist destination in Northern Cyprus.
Popular historic sites such as Bellapais Monastery and St Andrew's Church are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mavi kosk and Church of Antiphonitis. The adventure continues: explore the historical opulence of Saint Hilarion Castle, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, tour the water at your own pace with Vela Yachting, and enjoy the sand and surf at Alagadi Turtle Beach.

Just east of the capital sits Famagusta, an ancient port city with archaeological attractions, as well as an abandoned quarter that is popular among tourists as a symbol of the conflict between Turks and Greeks.
Sea Gate and Famagusta City Walls are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Salamis Ancient City and St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum. There's lots more to do: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Ghost Town Varosha, delve into the distant past at Enkomi (Alasia), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, and step into the grandiose world of Othello Castle.
