    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Kyrenia is a delightful town on the north coast of Cyprus - with a rich past, of which - in all fairness - very little is left, in town at least. It's main charm is a absolutely perfect old harbour, full of fishing boats and yachts. There's very little traffic and the place is very relaxing during the day, and suggestive at night.

    Fondest memory: My favourite thing about Kyrenia, as said before, is the harbour - which, with its Byzantine (?) castle in the background, make it a very special sight. The rest of the town is very low-key, though not ugly at all - small white houses and arrow lanes, and plenty of flowers all over. Definitely a great place to stay while exploring the surrounding area.

    Taking a boat tour in the evening

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Every year at least once we take a boat tour out of Kyrenia's old harbour. The tour consists of sailing out to different coasts of the Kyrenia district. Lunch/dinner is served on board.

    Depending on the wind, the route is decided. Usually the west coast route's destination is Escape or Maremonte beach. East route ends up in the Alagadi beach. For info on these beaches, please check out my Kyrenia district page.

    There are several boats that offer this service and most of them have good reputations. So once you negotiate on the price,which should be around 15-20 euros per person, you are ready to go.

    I especially like taking a boat tour in the evening as you get to see the sunset, take a dip into the warm waters of Mediterranean in the dark, and observe the lights of the coast.
    My favourite thing is to lie on top of the boat and watch the stars as we sail back to the harbour in the night.

    Fondest memory: On national days, this experience is much better as you get to watch all the fireworks from the boat.
