About North Cyprus

[Kervanseray Beach]

A wide selection of beaches, both manicured and natural, are within 10 - 20 minutes of Villa Manzara.

East of Kyrenia are Diana, Lara, Acapulco and Alagadi beaches, all easily accessible by car.  Escape Beach (small charge made) in Alsancak (west of Kyrenia) is one of the safest beaches close to Kyrenia.  There are many hotels with private bays, which permit non-residents to use them for a small fee.  Many quiet natural beaches are to be found on the Karpas Peninsula.

Kyrenia Harbour offers outside dining in a pretty setting looking at boats and bustling nightlife.  If you fancy cruising around the Med, being waited on, fresh fish lunches, swimming from the boat, then stroll down to Kyrenia harbour and book one of the many boats dealing in daily trips.

For the more adventurous there is a tandem paraglide available - jump off the Besparmak mountain!  Book in  Kyrenia, down by the old harbour.  Two Go-Kart tracks are nearby - one in the Girne area and another near Lefkosa. There is an aqua park near Lapta to the west of Kyrenia.

Horse riding sessions and walking tours can be booked at the Tourist Information Centre at Kyrenia Harbour.  Sailing, water skiing, power boat, Banana and Ringo rides can be found locally at several local beaches and at some of the beach-front hotels.

 The Karpaz Peninsula is a National Park. Find birds, wild donkeys, turtles, rare flora and little visited beaches.

Sea turtle watching: There are a number of beaches along the northern coast where Loggerhead and Green Turtles lay their eggs in the sand between June and October.  If you wish to join a group to watch them, or to actively help out in the task of protecting them, please contact the Tourist Information Office at the Harbour.

Must See... - Kyrenia Castle, St. Hilarion Castle, Bellapais Abbey, Soli and Vouni ancient Roman sites and the evocative Roman remains at Salamis complete with original columns, mosaic flooring and an amphitheatre.
