Why go to Kyrenia

The historic harbour city of Kyrenia is an interesting holiday destination in Northern Cyprus. It is the main base for breaks north of the Turkish-Cypriot border and enjoys year-round sunshine.

Book holidays in Kyrenia with TravelSupermarket and make big savings. Read on to discover more about this sun-soaked destination…

The mythical, magnificent, sun-dappled island of Cyprus is a firm favourite with Brits seeking lazy days at the water’s edge, as well as scintillating nightlife and a good dose of culture. While southern resorts, including Limassol, Paphos, and Ayia Napa, are well known for offering this delicious holiday recipe, resorts in Northern Cyprus remain largely off the main tourism radar. However, areas such as Kyrenia are well developed and have everything you need for a great holiday.

So, what can you expect to see, do and taste during Kyrenia holidays? Tourist attractions here include Kyrenia Castle; a formidable sight for invaders of the past, it glows like the sun every evening as golden lights cast shadows on the huge ramparts. Spend some time in the harbour to understand what makes Kyrenia tick or check out the exhibits in the Shipwreck Museum.

Kyrenia, known as Girne in Turkish, has a number of lovely beaches. However, many of them are for hotel residents only. If having a splash is important to you during your Kyrenia holiday, it’s therefore wise to book a hotel on the beach, or at least one that has a swimming pool, as you might have to travel some distance to the nearest public beach. If you fancy going all-inclusive, Kyrenia has a number of luxury hotels that cater around the clock for their lucky guests. But there budget and mid-range accommodation options too – cheap holidays to Kyrenia don’t have to mean compromising on style and amenities.

Hire a car in Kyrenia and you can access some of the most spectacular beaches in Northern Cyprus. There are miles-long beaches of unspoiled beauty, as well as sands where turtles come to lay their eggs. It’s a magical experience to see the hatching and first steps of these tiny turtles.

While nightlife in Kyrenia is much more low key than it is in some of the southern resorts of Cyprus (Ayia Napa, we’re looking at you), there is a tempting selection of beach bars and nightclubs where the action doesn’t stop at midnight. Kyrenia is also known for its casinos, many of which are in the area’s five-star hotels – it’s the perfect excuse to turn up the glitz and spend an evening at the slots or on the tables with a cocktail or two.

To find great-value holidays in Kyrenia, simply use the TravelSupermarket search tool to compare the very best deals on the market.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
