The Kyrenia region
Northern Cyprus is the Mediterranean's best kept secret, with its historical sites and secluded sandy beaches. Loved for its slow pace of life and value for money, it combines a beautiful coastline and a sunny climate all year round. Sterling and the Euro are accepted currencies in Northern Cyprus however the local currency is the Turkish Lira.
Kyrenia or as it's called in Turkish, Girne, is the closest main town with its picturesque harbour and abundance of shops. You can walk around the harbour, have a drink, lunch or dinner and absorb the beauty of this fantastic place. There are several boat trips from the harbour including a sunset trip at about 6pm. In the harbour is the 9th century Byzantine castle, which houses the shipwreck museum, containing the remains of a 4th century BC ship and its cargo.
Close to the town centre is Bellapais, where Laurence Durrell lived and wrote the classic Bitter Lemons. In Bellapais there is a 14th century Abbey, giving spectacular views over land and sea.
The Besparmak mountain range is home to some ancient castles including St Hilarion which is said to be Walt Disney's inspiration for the Magic Kingdom in Sleeping Beauty.
The District of Kyrenia has many restaurants, bars, nightclubs and casinos.
The coastline is famed for its breeding programme of Green and Loggerhead Turtles. You will find a turtle conservation area at Alagadi beach, where you can book a trip to observe the turtles laying and hatching their offspring between May and July.
The Kyrenia area is also situated in an excellent location to explore the rest of Northern Cyprus including the Karpas peninsular (with it's wild donkeys and deserted beaches), Famugusta, Nicosia and the southern area around Guzelyurt.
Esentepe is located about 20 minutes east of Kyrenia. This quaint village is just 2 kilometres from the villa. The village has numerous small local bars, restaurants serving excellent food and mini-markets. The locals are very friendly and welcoming. A larger supermarket is located on the coast road, just 3 minutes drive away.
There is always something going on at one of the bars and at the beginning of June the village hosts the Apricot Festival with various events going on all week.
A short drive down the road is the Korineum Golf and Country Club, boasting a superb 18 hole championship golf course, driving range and 3 practice holes. The luxurious club house has bars, restaurants and an excellent, reasonably priced spa offering a wide range of treatments.

Alternatively cycle along the old coastal road , east of Esentepe towards the Karpas Peninsular where traffic is light. Bikes can be hired in Kyrenia.
