The Kyrenia region
Kyrenia itself is over 6,000 years old dating back to the time of the Byzantines and centres itself around a magical Kyrenia harbour and Castle where you can either stroll around or indulge in some of the finest local cuisine and drinks. Whether you visit North Cyprus Kyrenia during day or night you can’t help but be mesmerized by the wonderful ambience.
There are three historical Castles in Northern Cyprus; St. Hilarion, Buffavento and Kantara. St Hilarion takes its name from a monk who had fled from persecution in the Holy land and was living in a cave on the mountain. St Hilarion was originally built as a watch tower to give warning of approaching Arab pirates in the 7th Century. Thousands of tourists every year climb to the highest point if only to have the feeling of being on top of the world.
Whilst in North Cyprus you must visit the Karpaz or ‘the Pan Handle’ where peace and tranquillity are the order of the day. The North Cyprus beaches are endless blankets of white sand with very few tourists. There are many cheap ‘beach huts’ and Bed & Breakfast accommodation should you wish to stay overnight.
Beaches are a principal attraction in North Cyprus, and vary widely in character from the busy Northern Cyprus hotel beaches, which offer many facilities, to the secluded stretches of sand in the Karpaz, where the visitor may have an entire beach to himself. North Cyprus beaches are a national heritage. Please respect them when you use them and please take your rubbish away with you. Do not forget to use sun-screen lotion - after 20 minutes under the summer sun, you will begin to burn.
Water sports are available on some beaches in North Cyprus where professional tuition and supervision are on offer. In general, the beaches associated with Northern Cyprus hotels are kept clean and provide facilities such as toilets, sun loungers, parasols, bars and restaurants. Entrance fees vary. The visitor is encouraged to explore for himself, but as a guide, a few beaches are listed below.
North Cyprus Kyrenia Beaches
Acapulco Beach lies about 6 miles to the east of North Cyprus Kyrenia. At the point where the coast road to the east sweeps up towards the mountains, a large sign advertising this beach will be seen. Here, the road branches off to the left, passing through an army camp before leading to the entrance of this holiday complex in North Cyprus. This is a popular tourist beach, offering most facilities, but supervision of children swimming is recommended as there is an undertow. Windsurfing is available.
Vogue Beach is a couple of miles East from Acapulco. Offering all facilities in a relaxed setting.
Lara Beach may be found a couple of miles further on - a sign indicates where to turn off from the new by-pass road. Toilets, showers, and sun loungers are available, and there is also a reasonable open air Northern Cyprus restaurant.
Alagadi Beach is still further east, about 10 miles from Northern Cyprus Kyrenia. A hundred yards or so past St. Kathleen’s restaurant is a small bridge. Immediately after the bridge, a rough track bears left, leading past a farm and through the dunes to a large, sweeping double bay. There are no facilities, so bring your own refreshments, including water, and avoid leaving litter.
Escape Beach is located about 5 miles to the west of Kyrenia, past the sloping concrete monument beyond Karaoglanoglu. It is adjacent to the Altinkaya fish restaurant. The North Cyprus sandy beach is well protected and ideal for tiny tots. Toilets and showers are available, and there is a bar and restaurant.
Deniz Kizi is situated about seven miles west of Kyrenia. This sheltered bay is kept clean, and offers a variety of water sports including windsurfing, parascending, water skiing, and inflatable fun rafts for smaller children. Sunbeds are available for hire, and there are also toilet and shower facilities.
Mare Monte hotel beach lies some 10 miles west of Kyrenia, and provides all the facilities the visitor requires. An excellent location, but the entrance fee is higher than elsewhere.
The Dome Hotel in Kyrenia has a large seawater swimming pool, ideal for those who like sea-water without the sand. Most facilities available.

Villa Tembel and Kyrenia were absolutely lovely for a holiday. The villa had excellent space for two couples, pool was brilliant as the weather was very hot. The owner Derek answered all our questions before going to Kyrenia and Sue gave us all the required information when there. Best restaurants were Effendi, 6 Brothers, the Italian on the Harbour and the Bell Tower in Bellapais.

"It couldnt have been better"
The villa is ideally situated for drives up into the mountains or walks to the harbour front. It has all the facilities you would expect and a great pool area for lying in the sun all day - its also close to shops and restaurants which is extremely convenient.
The owners were extremely helpful with all the questions we asked before we went and the bottle of sparkling wine was a lovely surprise on arrival.
We had a thrououghly enjoyable time and will certainly be returning.
If you do nothing else during your stay, please visit the restauarnts in Bellapais (about 15mins away up in the mountain) - you wont be disappointed!!

"Fantastic Villa, Lovely Setting, Perfect Relaxing Holiday"
My husband and I stayed in this villa which was exceptionally well equipped with everything we needed and a few littel extra touches which were lovely. Everything was very clean and tidy and very well presented.
The area was also very nice and in a good position for local amenities, restaurants and on the odd occasion nightlife!
We will be going back soon!

"A lovely place to unwind"
We have stayed twice now at the Villa Tembel, for the same two weeks in July. The location is ideal for getting into Kyrenia for eating and shopping, and the pool is lovely. The first year there were 6 of us, and there was 6 loungers by the pool, so no fighting!
Most amenities are provided, however the TV in the lounge doesn't have satellite so don't expect to watch anything in English. This doesn't bother us personally, as we don't watch TV on holidays, but there is a DVD player so if you can't live without the telly, bring some box sets with you! Also, there is no wireless internet, so we buy a dongle from the Telsim (N. Cyprus' Vodafone) for about 85TL which should be more than enough for a fortnight. If not, you can top it up easily for not a lot.
The local supermarket is only 5 mins up the road, and stocks pretty much everything you need if you want to cook, and there is a brick built BBQ outside. This year the owner has added a pretty gazebo with table and chairs by the pool, which was lovely to sit in and eat of an evening.
Already planning next year....
