Area Overview

Kyrenia is a coastal town known as the tourist capital of northern Cyprus. Its historic castle and harbour area draws many visitors, and the town is also a busy port. Average summer temperatures reach 31°C during July and August, with mild temperatures of around 10°C being enjoyed by winter visitors. The town enjoys a lively nightlife, with numerous shopping malls and cafes being popular all year round. The pedestrianised promenade is a draw for tourists day and night, with the cobbled alleyways full of independent shops adding to the charm of the town.

Things To Do in Kyrenia

  • Kyrenia Shipwreck Museum: Home to a trading ship from the time of Alexander the Great, the museum offers an insight into her cargo on the last voyage. Wine amphoras, drinking cups and oil jugs are among the artefacts on show.
  • Kyrenia Museum of Folk Art: Situated near the harbour, this is a small museum housed in an 18th century Cypriot property.
  • Kyrenia Castle: A 16th century castle standing imposingly above the harbour. Inside the castle walls is a 12th century chapel, guardrooms, living quarters and prison. A souvenir shop and café can also be visited.
  • Bellapais Village and Abbey: The Gothic abbey is built into the mountainside, above which lies Bellapais Village with its narrow streets and charming cafes. Bellapais was made famous by author Lawrence Durrell in his book, ‘Bitter Lemons.’ The ‘Tree of Idleness’ mentioned in the book is an ancient mulberry.
  • Necropolis of Karmi: To the west of Kyrenia lies the village of Karmi. Excavated tombs include the ‘tomb of the seafarer’ which contains objects thought to be representative of a seafarer of the time.
  • Lambousa: An ancient kingdom, part of which has survived to become a tourist attraction. Part of the city walls, the base of a lighthouse as well as a silver dinner service can be seen here.

When to go to Kyrenia

The Kyrenia Festival of Culture and Arts takes place each June, and includes concerts, plays and musicals. High summer temperatures make this a destination for sun-worshippers and culture-lovers alike, and even though it is low season, tourists enjoy the town during the winter months thanks to its mild climate.
