Northern Cyprus occupies the northern and eastern sections of this sun-baked Mediterranean island. While droves of holidaymakers head to the resorts of the southern shoreline, such as Ayia Napa, Larnaca, Limassol and Paphos, the north is a much more sedate destination, where pristine beaches and countryside hikes invigorate the minds, bodies and souls of those who venture here. The former complexities of entering the Turkish-occupied north have relaxed significantly in recent years; arriving for your holiday here will feel no different than it does anywhere else in Europe. You'll need Turkish lira instead of euros, though both euros and British pounds are widely accepted in the bigger resorts.
The landscape is diverse and appealing. From bustling harbour towns where boats dance on the gentle waves, through hills and mountains where trees cling to the slopes, and down to glorious beaches of golden and white sands, which see far fewer visitors than those in the south, North Cyprus is certain to tick your holiday boxes if you are after a good value break in the sun.
Kyrenia is an attractive harbour town and the base for many of the package-break holidays in Northern Cyprus. While Kyrenia and its outlying areas have ancient roots and attractions that showcase the past, such as the castle and Bellapais Abbey, the hotels here are a mix of historic buildings and sprawling modern resorts, some featuring sumptuous spas and five-star service. The coastline of Kyrenia is by far the most popular choice for visitors and you can find many great restaurants, bars, shops, golf courses and attractions on this northern stretch of shore. On the east coast is Famagusta, which is also historic, though a lot more built-up than Kyrenia. The nearby coastal town of Bogaz also attracts holidaymakers. You can also book breaks to stay in the divided city of Nicosia, in the centre of the island.
Bizarrely, casinos do big business in Northern Cyprus and Kyrenia is at the centre of the action. You can play the slots or try your hand on the gaming tables at a variety of fun venues.
