Make a North Cyprus villa in the Kyrenia Region your home away from home

The Kyrenia Region is an island paradise, and the ideal getaway for British holiday makers for decades, and the water sports, stunning coastline, archaeological sites, imposing medieval castles, uncrowded beaches and magnificent welcome received from the locals keeps the Kyrenia Region in the front of the minds of anyone who has had the luxury of experiencing a holiday to the Kyrenia Region. Take a North Cyprus villa in the Kyrenia Region and see what all the fuss is about!

Places to holiday in the Kyrenia Region

Famagusta is surrounded by the original city walls from medieval times, with the magnificent Kantara Castle standing proud in the centre. The ghost town between North and the Republic of Cyprus is an incredible sight, and the ruins of Salamis are a hugely important archaeological site. Famagusta is also home to modern beach resorts, and provides access for walkers and 4x4 drivers to the Karpas Peninsula.

Kyrenia is best known for its marina and port, described by many travel journalists as the most beautiful marina in the world. The Kyrenia region also benefits from magnificent beaches, and taking a North Cyprus apartment in the Kyrenia Region will undoubtedly draw you to the beaches of Escape Beach and Acapulco beach, which both have bars, restaurants and nightclubs nearby.

Things to do on a the Kyrenia Region holiday

With 9,000 years of history, North Cyprus has some exquisite historic sites and a magnificently rich culture. Gothic churches, crusader castles, crumbling temples and Colonial architecture are dotted around the blissfully unspoilt and natural landscape. The Cypriot culture is very important in the North, and there are examples of folk singing, dancing and cuisine in regular supply from North Cyprus holiday homes in the Kyrenia Region.

The beaches in the Kyrenia Region are hard to do justice to. The crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean lap against the fine sand, whether the beach is a large sweeping resort beach with bars and watersport provisions, or one of the many idyllic untouched coves hidden behind dunes, or the wild deserted sands of the Karpaz Peninsula.

For eight months of the year, swimming is enjoyed by tourists, and the sailing, diving, windsurfing, waterskiing and other water sports continue round the calendar.

Weather in the Kyrenia Region

Last minute holidays to Cyprus can be taken at any time of year. The magnificent Mediterranean climate provides long hot summers, averaging 30°C during the day, and mild winters staying above 10°C during the day.

Flights to the Kyrenia Region

Currently, all flights to the Kyrenia Region must be directed through Turkey, to the Airports of Gecitkale (GEC) and Ercan (ECN), both Turkish Airlines and Pegasus Air provide flights. Most people tend to fly into Larnaca however, and cross the border to the Turkish region of Cyprus, which nowadays is very simple. There are plenty of cheap flight options to Larnaca by a range of low cost companies such as easyJet and other low cost carriers and a selection of legacy airline carriers.

It is a well-equipped villa that had everything we needed, having beach towels was a great help. Although summer had not begun the children still enjoyed using the pool and having it all to themselves. The location was great as we were able to walk to a local shop and two great beaches which the children really enjoyed. The local bus was easy to catch just 2 minute’s walk from the villa so getting into the main town Kyrenia was easy, cheap and fast. We will be returning in the summer months and hope to stay again. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable, very friendly and helpful.

Suit those wanting to self-cater, tan, BBQ & swim! Good internet connection. Short walk through the village to a shop selling the basics. Several restaurants within walking distance. Fabulous views. Recommend a small car as the streets are narrow in places. Overall: excellent for 1 or 2 couples.
