The Kyrenia region
North Cyprus has been seen as a "forgotten frontier" over the years, but as its doors slowly creak open they reveal a tantalisingly different destination for the modern-day tourist.
First, a short lesson in history. In 2,500BC, the island already had a thriving market in the copper discovered there. It is that old.
Some 4,500 years on, the copper may have run out, but in its place an equally rich vein of revenue has taken over. The holiday trade.
The island "panhandle" beaches have pure white sand stretching for miles, but, astonishingly, without a single bather. You are much more likely to see a wild donkey among the dunes than a tourist. The solitude is almost tangible and a trip to the very tip of the Karpaz one of life's "unforgettable journeys".
Along the way, try to stop off at Hasan's Turtle Beach, run by the characterful Hasan Korkmaz. His little outpost has a restaurant where you can have, say, fresh sea bream cooked on the barbie, washed down by a few bottles of the ice-cold Turkish beer, Efes. Stay the night, too, if you wish in one of his little beach huts, which Hasan rents out at give-away prices.
Main resort in North Cyprus is Kyrenia (known as Girne to the Turks). It is no more than a village, however, with a population of less than 8,000, but has much to offer travellers.
The harbour area, watched over by the imposing Crusader castle (circa 12th century) has the Venetians to thank for its beauty, perhaps unsurpassed on the island.
It is wall-to-wall restaurants and bars - a stunning sight by day, but an area that really comes into its own at night, when hungry tourists invade, eager to taste the speciality kleftiko lamb (slow roasted in the oven), or fresh-caught fish such as lagos or minerio.
"Must" trips in and around Kyrenia start at the aforementioned and unmissable Karpaz, Bellapais Abbey, St Hilarion Castle (said to be the model for Walt Disney's Snow White castle), Vouni Palace (the only Persian palace in the whole of the Mediterranean), Nicosia and Famagusta.
The nearest nice beach is located in Tatlisu Belediyesi Zambak Tatilkoyu, or for those of you who do not speak Turkish Tatlisu Municipality Holiday Village.
There is a wonderful restuarant within the village where we ate. The food is typical Turkish Cypriot and delicious. The fish is so fresh, as you take a mouthful, it could almost bite you back. The restaurant has the capacity to cater for 200 people indoors and 600 people outdoors. It is situated right on the seafront and again the views have that 'wow' factor.
Tatlisu has so much going for it now. The roads have been upgraded and are so improved it now only seems a short distance from anywhere else on the island. It would make a perfect centre for a holiday where, with a car, you can explore the rest of what beautiful North Cyprus has to offer.
Tatlisu is certainly making itself very attractive not only as a stopover on the way to somewhere else but also as a destination in itself, perfect for those of us who just want to unwind and take a couple of weeks to 'chill out'.
