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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate The Round Tower and Icon Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Kyrenia Animal Rescue and Escape Beach Club. Step out of Kyrenia to go to Esentepe and see Korineum Golf and Country Club, which is approximately 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Mavi kosk, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Andrew's Church, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and contemplate the waterfront views at Kyrenia Harbour.

For more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read Kyrenia trip itinerary planning site.

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Glapsides Beach and Monastery of Apostolos Varnavas. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Salamis Ancient City and Ghost Town Varosha. When in Famagusta, make a side trip to see Minia Kibris in Tatlisu, approximately Tatlisu away. Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Silver Beach, explore the historical opulence of Othello Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, and take an in-depth tour of NamIk Kemal ZindanI ve Muzesi.
