About the Owner
I am a teaching working on the south coast of England. We enjoying trekking, swimming, diving, fresh food and nice wine for the grown ups, which makes the destination ideal for us. As a family we love the climate and pace of life and find it a good way to unwind after working hard during term time.
From the Owner
“I love North Cyprus. The pace of life is not too fast and not too slow. The food is wonderfully fresh, especially the tomatoes and fish and the service is friendly and reliable. We fell in love with the apartment on first viewing and secured the sale within weeks. We look forward to returning whenever it isn't booked so that we can enjoy the golf course up the road and the spa and restaurant at the same site. The boys love the castle and the port and coast boat cruises they have taken, not to mention the great diving on offer. The site has excellent facilities in the bar and bistro and the tennis courts and the beach is easily within reach after a couple of minutes walk.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Apart from sun, sea and swimming there is a variety of activities available. Loggerhead and Green turtles abound the local shores and you can not only watch them lay their eggs, but also see them hatch as there is a Turtle Protection scheme nearby. The local flora and fauna is captivating and specialist walks are organised locally. The sparkling blue sea is warm from April to November and clear enough to enjoy snorkelling. Local companies offer boat trips and diving opportunities with PADI qualified instructors. There are many historical sites to visit from the remarkable Roman ruins of Salamis to the heady heights of the Crusader castles as well as Bellapais Abbey. Closer to home, is the beautifully situated Antiphonitis Church near Esentepe with its ancient wall-paintings. Apart from these tantalising suggestions, you can also enjoy fishing, paragliding and mountain hiking and biking. It is equally an explorer’s paradise as well as a sun-worshipper’s haven.
There is a small private beach cove in the village, which can be easily accessed by foot. It has a sandy area as well as decking and sun loungers. Alternatively Alagadi beach, Vogue Beach Club and the Acapulco Hotel with private beaches are only a short drive away. The penthouse is also ideally placed for the Karpas Peninsula which has ancient ruins to explore and some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the Mediterranean.
Located near the town of Esentepe and not far from Kyrenia. We recommend a rental car that can be arranged when booking the holiday or locally with management company on site.
Esentepe village is only 5 mins drive away where there is a local supermarket, butchers and various shops. There are now a number of restaurants a short drive away and a supermarket and petrol station have recently opened. Alagadi beach is worth a visit during the day and by night you can experience the Loggerhead and Green turtles laying their eggs during May and the eggs hatching around August/ September. Kyrenia is about a 25 mins drive away and is famous for its harbour.
There are many supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies and banks available locally. The local currency is Turkish Lira and whilst it isn't a rule of thumb, many restaurants and supermarkets accept Sterling in place of Lira and some supermarkets will also convert your Sterling into Lira at the daily published rate. Credit cards are also widely accepted.
UK three-pin plugs are used throughout North Cyprus and whilst Turtle Bay Village has its own supply of water, it is advised that bottled water should be consumed (available cheaply).

From the Owner
“Turtle Bay Village is a lovely safe and secure site. It has tennis courts, a sports bar, a bistro that serves a good lunch and dinner and has free wifi so you can stay in touch online and update your Facebook status. There are shaded areas around the seven pools and a good shop from which to buy daily grocers. The beach is an easy walk away as is the bus stop that can take you to Kyrenia or Esentepe if you decide not to hire a car. The fantastic golf course is a short trip away and has great facilities and wonderful greens to drive off.
