The warm clear waters of the Mediterranean lap gently along miles of gorgeous sandy beaches, backed by the verdant slopes of the surrounding Five Finger Mountains. Set as a jewel within the crown of this stunning location is the historic city of Kyrenia itself. Throughout its history it has attracted the great civilizations to enjoy and add their stamp to its rich tapestry of culture. Vestiges of Greek, Roman, French, Ottoman and British settlers’ architecture and customs remain, all tightly packed within the town’s cobbled streets, small harbour and magnificent castle.
This epic castle of Byzantine origin sits spectacularly opposite the harbour wall. Once guarding the small bustling port, it now provides a splendid backdrop to the beautiful quayside cafes, bars and restaurants.
