The Nicosia region
This apartment is about 30/45 mins west of Kyrenia on a west facing coast. It is less developed than the east side of Kyrenia, and the Kyrenia area itself. The lifestyle is more relaxed, and enjoyed by locals - with amazing service in shops, which are so genuine and not particularly geared towards tourism. The beachside cafes are often in great locations.. .Whether you 're an avid sightseer keen to check out the sights of Kyrenia, a walk along the harbour's breakwater has to be something you do at least once while you're there.
A castle features in Kyrenia, the western tower forms part of the Customs House built by the British in 1914.
Nowadays, restaurants occupy most of the buildings that rim the harbour, between the minaret of Cafer Pasa Camii (Kyrenia's oldest mosque) and the white bell tower of the Church of the Arkhangelos Mikhael (now the city's Icon Museum); once they provided the town's traders with warehouses on the ground floor and living quarters upstairs.
There are countless individual stores selling so many interesting local products. Unlike Gaziveren, Kyrenia is more commercialised and popular with tourists. A popular stopover for large tourist groups.
Join in with the relaxed lifestyle of the locals - there is local history, culture and great beaches to explore. There is an excellent water-side fish restaurant (Mardin) 10 minutes' drive away in Gemikonagi. There are several other basic local restaurants nearby and in Guzelyurt - also known as Morphou. If you are prepared to drive a little further to the Kyrenia riviera, there are boundless numbers of restaurants serving all kinds of cuisines. In Guzelyurt though, you can have the most amazing shopping experience - some perhaps unassuming shops but fantastic service. You can find most things that you might need in town - Service as it used to be!! There is a well stocked supermarket in Gaziveren (a 20-30 minute walk) and a larger 'Lemar' supermarket in the shopping centre 5 minutes' drive away.
Aphrodite Beachfront Village is only a short drive from the archaeological sites of Soli (Roman theatre and basilica) and Vouni (Persian Palace of 5th-century BC). If you like walking, you can walk for miles along the coastal dirt track (it's perfectly safe, as there is no traffic). Further afield, there are any number of walks to do.
For family activities, ZET go-carting is a 20 minute drive away (on the road to Nicosia). It's great fun.
For a whole host of activities, the Sunset Club in Lapta is also about 20 minutes away, but on the coastal road to Kyrenia (Girne). Various casinos within 1-2hr drive.
Further along the coast towards Kyrenia - about 30 minutes from Gaziveren - is Escape Beach, which has jet-skis, banana boats, canoes, pedal boats and a PADI-recognised dive school.
If you want to be even more daring, there's a paragliding club. The office is in Kyrenia - in the old harbour - 45 minutes away.
If you're interested in history, then there are the crusader castles, Bellapais Abbey and all sorts of other places of interest to visit.
