Just 5 minutes away, Kyrenia was once a Venetian harbour town, and its enchanting harbour is still utterly beautiful and something of an icon of the local area, along with its picturesque castle. The town features a magnificent backdrop provided by the Pentadaktylos Mountains and their dramatic forested hillsides. Nowadays it is a cultural and economic hub, with three universities, many hotels and a vibrant nightlife, as well as an annual culture and arts festival.

Stylish beach bars, sophisticated beachfront hotels and romantic hill-top restaurants are dotted across this fabulous coastline, while there are several markets selling fresh, local produce, olives, cheeses, bread and meats.
