Situated in Northern Cyprus is the picturesque harbor town of Kyrenia. It comes as no surprise that this is the most popular tourist destination within this island country’s northern region. When exiting North Cyprus Ercan Airport, grab a car rental for the most convenience in exploring the city. It will make for easy exploration in Kyrenia, and for the adventurous, the whole of Cyprus.
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.
