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 Saint Hilarion Castle are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mavi kosk and Scuba & Snorkeling. Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Andrew's Church, view the masterpieces at The Round Tower, stroll through Alagadi Turtle Beach, and try your luck at Lord’s Palace Hotel Casino.
