This hotel is not in Kyrenia, they do provide a bus into Kyrenia which is 5 lira per person each way, they also provided a free bus to a local beach which is worth a trip as the sea is crystal clear. Sunbeds are free but need to check which ones as you will be charged otherwise.

Kyrenia is a large town of 300,000, there is plenty of choice for all types, most of the attractions are situated around the harbour which is very pretty, just to stroll or sit at one of the restaurant bars watching the boats, or visiting the impressive harbour castle just a short walk away and well worth a look, also the round tower by the high street full of interesting artifacts.

A beautiful place with a nice harbour with an interesting castle. Could not find any local tourist companies running excursions. Glad I went there but would not return. I was impressed with flights and transfers which went off without a hitch - well done.

We took advantage of the very good weather which enabled us to make use of all the tourist activities; sailing, safari, paragliding and general sightseeing. It was also a very pleasant surprise to find that, since the last visit 38 years ago, the buildings and harbour had not been spoiled, and that the people were very friendly indeed.

Kyrenia is ok for a short visit but there is not a lot in the town itself. It is a bit dirty and neglected. The highlight of my week was our visit to Bellapais Abbey village -10tl in taxi- it was beautiful. There are a couple of nice wee bars and restaurants in the old town eg. The Moonlight Inn and The Irish Bar but they are not advertised and quite hard to find. Not a lot of lighting around the back streets at night so take a torch. And beware of traffic they drive fast even in narrow streets.

Holiday Date:1st May 2014
Accommodation:Denizkizi Royal Hotel
Room:Double Or Twin
Board:Half Board

This Denizkizi is about 9kms west of Kyrenia so not ideal for people expecting to walk into the town/harbour. Kyrenia itself is largely unspoilt and restaurant staff are very friendly and want to give good customer service. The £/Lira rate is excellent, at the moment, and eating out is very inexpensive. 500ml of EFES (local beer) is £2. Lunch for six of us, at the harbour, was under £10 per person.

It was the first time we had stayed in Kyrenia and we enjoyed it. The main town was a taxi ride away which was cheap but the hotel had a free bus. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants there, not too expensive. Over all it was a good holiday.

There are lots of things to do and see. It is vital to hire a car as public transport is almost non-existent. Kyrenia has plenty of restaurants and shops as well as the castle and harbour. There are also lots of beaches near by.

Fab place with great places to eat, very nice restaurants; the local food is amazing and very cheap. We also went to a great restaurant at the waters edge, amazing at night. Eating in the harbour at night is lovely but spray yourself with moz spray before you go as they love it by the water! Great food in the local square just near to the Colony Hotel. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the locals, very friendly.

Kyrenia is an overcrowded, quaint, old harbour overlooked by a fantastic castle surrounded by bars and resturants. There is shopping nearby for bags, T-shirts, jewellery etc. Exploring beyond Kyrenia requires a car and one can venture into the mountains or drive along the coast road to the pan-handle of Cyprus and explore. There is nothing for kids and this is not a sandy beach or 18/30 type of resort. It is rather quaint and romantic, steeped in history with lots of friendly people. We love it and return every year for our wedding anniversary, it never fails to bring back lovely, romantic memories.

Great place to stay, peaceful and easy to get the Monastery. Beautiful views from there. Kyrenia town is not far away and you can use the shuttle bus or your car as there is plenty of parking available in the town. Kyrenia harbour is a must with lots of little restaurants to stop at and have a refreshing drink. Loads of shops for bargains. Our favourite place on the whole Island.

Beaches

Beaches line the coast to the east and west of Kyrenia, although there are none in the town itself. For a lively atmosphere, summer beach parties and a variety of watersports (such as canoes, pedal boats, jet skis and scuba diving) head for Five Mile Beach or the family friendly Mermaid Beach which has windsurfing and water-skiing facilities. Also popular are the long sands of Mare Monte Beach.

Quieter beaches tend to lie to the east of Kyrenia and these include Catalkoy Beach where you can go horse-riding, Vakiflar Beach and Turtle Beach. Whilst not the best swimming waters, the long sands of Acapulco Beach are backed by the sports and leisure facilities of the Acapulco Hotel.

Things to Do

Stroll around the attractive old harbour, filled with fishing boats and sailing craft, surrounded by bars and restaurants offering fabulous sea views by day and a buzzing holiday atmosphere in the evenings. Boat trips are available from the harbour for scenic coastal cruises.

Overlooking the harbour, the Kyrenia Castle dates back to the 7th century and houses plenty to explore including a church, dungeons and the Shipwreck Museum. Also next to the harbour, the Folk Arts Museum provides an interesting look at traditional Cypriot living.

Relax in a hammock under the shade of a tree, take a dip in the pool, stop for lunch and stroll around the beautiful landscaped botanical gardens at the nearby Green Heights Park.

Out and About

Kyrenia has a good choice of bars, including sports bars and late night bars, as well as a full range of dining options. There are many cafes and restaurants in the old town and around the harbour with menus ranging from delicious Turkish cuisine to traditional English fare, Eastern and Mediterranean choices to fast food takeaways.

The high street is packed with shops for souvenirs, clothing and everyday needs and the Kyrenia Open Market, with over 100 stalls, is held on Wednesdays.

Nearby Attractions

On a clear day, take a trip into the mountain countryside to the historic St Hilarion Castle, which sits above the town of Kyrenia. The steps inside the castle are quite steep but the views from the top are breathtaking. The climb is in stages with ruins, a cafe and a museum to enjoy on the way.

Other historic attractions offering peaceful locations and panoramic views include the Buffavento Castle and the Bellapais Monastery.

The city of Nicosia is approx half an hour drive away and the unspoiled countryside and secluded beaches of the Karpaz Peninsula are approx an hour and half drive.
