Traveler impressions of Kyrenia
One of the best places in the world that I have visited, some of the places are just timeless especially around the Castle area.
...very friendly and helpful locals and it feels very safe...and British.
I recommend to everyone. The area is wonderful, I liked it a lot better than the south side, because there's almost only concrete hotels and there is not too much to see.
The north side is cheaper and more exciting, colorful, lots of historical monuments. You can use the local small buses to travel to the beach or to other interesting cities. The buses are cheap, with little waiting time, reliable, and can meet the locals.
Visit Bellepais Monastery. It is a beautiful building with fantastic views. Go to Set Fish restaurant on the harbour and sit on the terrace at night.
The castle is amazing and the waterfront is beautiful. It it well situated and offers day (sightseeing and the turkish bath)as well as nightlife (casino's and clubs).
The cultural mix is also interesting and fun. The city is small enough to do most things on foot. I would recommend this city to everyone.
Kyrenia is a very special place and caters for everyone. The harbour area at night is one of the most beautiful places in the world and very special.

More about Kyrenia
Other than the charming city views and natural respite, Kyrenia offers a few worthy sights worth a visit. Kyrenia Castle is one such sight situated next to the harbor. Throughout time, a number of nations claimed victory over the castle, but today it is shared with all. There is even the Shipwreck Museum located inside that features the preserved wreck of a wooden merchant ship that is dated back to 306 BC. For some culture, there is the Fresco Museum and Museum of Decorative Arts. Outside the typical tourist sites, the city offers plenty of recreation and leisure. There are opportunities for golfing, paragliding, orchid walks, and turtle watching. Take a boat tour to discover the city’s shores or enjoy a hike through the Kyrenia Walk. When the sun sets, head out for a night at the dance club or catch a concert.
