Places in The Northwest of Kyrenia (Girne) & the North
The quiet town of Güzelyurt (Morfou) was once the centre for Cyprus’ lucrative citrus industry. The majority of the citrus groves here are still owned by Greek Cypriots, and the area has remained an important point of contention in all reunification talks. The citrus industry here suffered a severe downturn after the 1974 Turkish invasion.
Koruçam (Kormakitis) Peninsula
A trip to the exposed northwestern tip of Northern Cyprus, known as Koruçam Burnu (Cape Kormakitis), is a fantastic day excursion from Kyrenia, with a number of deserted beaches on the way. Pack a picnic lunch, and enjoy the solitude at the cape and its surrounds.
