Welcome to Kyrenia (Girne) & the North
Most visit for sun and sea holidays, which has led to a flurry of less-than-pretty developments being flung up along the shore. Ignore the concrete-block oddities and you’ll find there’s plenty left to explore. From Bellapais Abbey to the fairy-tale-fluff of St Hilarion Castle, there are ruins with million-dollar views galore.
This region is famed for its outdoor potential with hiking, turtle-spotting, orchid-hunting and bird-watching on the agenda. The trails are under-promoted and gloriously quiet; a perfect incentive to get your walking shoes on and discover them before everyone else does.
