The Kyrenia region
Northern Cyprus enjoys the lovely Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine a year. North Cyprus brims with European Heritage Sites spanning some 9,000 years of history, from Gothic churches and Crusader castles, to ancient Roman and Greek temples, ruined abbeys and British colonial buildings.
The food is a tasty fusion of eastern and western cultures with kebabs, vegetarian meze and grilled fish featuring strongly on menus, often served under ageing olive trees or against a turquoise coastal backdrop.
Hospitality and generosity are strong traditions in North Cyprus, so visitors are warmly welcomed. There are plenty of colourful festivals to join in with.
The Venetian built harbour in Kyrenia, reputed to be the finest in the Mediterranean is lined with restaurants and pavement cafes. Visitors can enjoy unhurried dining without the noisy crowds and all night clubbing of larger Mediterranean holiday resorts. A visit to Belapais and the abbey is a must, as is St. Hilarion Castle for the spectacular views from the top.
There are many beaches and coves scattered around the coast. Club Acapulco and Escape Beach Club have plenty to offer, both have a bar/restaurant and the Acapulco has a water park for young families.
For other outdoor activities choose from scuba diving, gulet crusing, snorkelling, paragliding, Jeep safaris, bird watching and horse riding. Hiking the island's trails is popular especially on guided wild flower and orchid walks in the spring.
The Korineum Golf and Country Club is a 20 minute drive away and is a championship standard 18 hole par 72 course. There is also a driving range and academy with full length practice holes. Day passes are available for visitors.
There are local shops for fresh milk/bread etc. On the main coast road there are numerous supermarkets selling anything that you would need. Also the locals sell their beautiful fresh vegetables and fruit on the road side.
There are many restaurants in Catalkoy and neighbouring villages, these vary from local cuisine to Indian, Chinese and Italian to mention a few. All are to a high standard and reasonably priced.
Catalkoy beach, only a five minute drive away has a beach bar, sun lounger and parasols for hire. The coast line is dotted with many coves. Heading towards Esentepe is Turtle Beach. During the summer months between the hours of 9pm and 5am the beach is protected to allow the turtles onto the beach to lay their eggs.
It is possible to book a sleep on the beach to see the turtles coming to lay their eggs. The beach is used by visitors and locals alike during the day.
