North Cyprus Holidays
North Cyprus - The Med as it was decades ago.
North Cyprus may be small, but it’s still bursting with personality! It’s one of the closest experiences to stepping in a time machine you’ll have. When enjoying Kyrenia holidays you will be overlooked by the wise old Kyrenia Mountains there is very much a feeling that nature is the main presence in this beautiful part of the Mediterranean.
North Cyprus has seen so much history pass through its barely changed landscapes, still sleepy in the warm, laid back atmosphere. The quiet almond beaches of the Karpaz Peninsula breathe blankets of sand in gentle breezes while the turquoise sea whispers intangible thoughts. The marks left behind throughout the centuries such as the charismatic crusader castles that look down imposingly to the landscape from their visionary positions give you a sense of mystery and yearning to discover its little secrets.
Add to such a unique atmosphere the dimension of comforting luxuries, such as delicious fresh cuisine, sociable restaurants, diverse activities, unique wild life and friendly locals all help to make North Cyprus a place easy to find happiness in.

Cyprus itself was once a colony of the British Empire, giving it a fusion of British, Cypriot and Turkish cultures. As with many ex British Colonies English is widely spoken, and driving is still on the left. If you want to impress, then why not brush up on some basic Turkish as Turkish is the official language of North Cyprus.
North Cyprus has an abundance of historic sites like no other. North Cyprus is a place that guarantees culture, and experience. A combination of cosmopolitan towns and traditional villages add to the flavour of the island. Many of the eateries are family run, and shops range from traditional crafts to modern outlets.
Kyrenia holidays have a special interest for many holidaymakers, as the harbour town has its very own ancient venetian harbour. The place is unique and offers a gorgeous setting during the day and night. A perfect place to explore and relax throughout the day, you can admire the traditional fishing vessels that anchor there while enjoying freshly caught fish or a traditional Cypriot brandy Sour cocktail.
The town also has a mountain backdrop adding to the romance of the area. Why not visit one of the castles set on the peak of the mountain range or take a visit to sleepy and quaint Bellapais village and its Gothic Abbey.
