Kyrenia Holidays. Timeless Cyprus
Kyrenia: Simple, scintillating Cyprus
Kyrenia is one of the most extraordinary areas of Cyprus, an island already known for its overwhelming mix of beaches, beautiful landscapes and encapsulating historic monuments. Located in the north of Cyprus, Kyrenia is the perfect place to take a holiday villa in Cyprus for the first time visitor, giving unrivalled access to all that has made the island a tourist favourite across Europe.
Kyrenia is an unspoilt slice of Cypriot bliss. Taking a holiday villa in Kyrenia offers an unrivalled experience, where you can explore and enjoy the best of Cypriot lifestyles in luxury, far from the tourist crowds and close to the ‘real Cyprus’. There are a whole coastline of unspoilt and almost empty beaches, clear seas and endless coastal walking to be enjoyed. For pure beach holidays, where the sea and scenery are key, not the beach bars and activity caravans, Kyrenia villas are what you are looking for! The natural beaches, set to a mountainous backdrop of the dramatic Besparmak Mountains, are unbeatable for beauty, and the swimming is great, with clear, calm seas stretching into the horizon.
Kyrenia itself is a harbour city whose streets are filled with 6,000 years of history, dating back to civilizations from throughout history. The Mediterranean seaside location produces a beautifully relaxing atmosphere, which is best enjoyed in the evening. After the sun sets, Kyrenia is the best place in Cyprus. The ancient streets hide a host of tiny bars and family owned restaurants whose candle lights and soft music produce the best eating experience you could possibly wish for.
During the days, the harbour is the centre of activity in Kyrenia. The harbour is filled with yachts and fishing boats setting for the sea, all in the shadow of the impressive crusader built Kyrenia Castle that stands at the mouth of the harbour itself. Inside the castle is the Kyrenia Museum whose crowning glory is one of the oldest ships ever to be salvaged from the sea.
Overall, Kyrenia is the perfect place simply to get away. The chic cafes and restaurants which surround Kyrenia Harbour cannot be beaten as a place to simply sit back and let the world drift by, whilst the beaches along the unspoilt coastline cannot fail to capture the heart. If you are heading for Cyprus to get away from it all and slow down, a Kyrenia villa is the only place worth thinking about…
