Kyrenia District Off The Beaten Path

  • The Karpas Peninsula - North - South...

    We then turned southwards. The picture shows our hire car on a rather rough unmade-up road, which, fortunately, only lasted for a few miles. It was the only untarmaced road that we experienced in north Cyprus.

  • The Karpas Peninsula - North Coast

    When we left St Hilarion Castle, we returned to the north coast and followed the road eastwards to the Karpas Peninsula. The first few miles of the road were new and wide, but it then became narrow and quite bumpy (although tarmacked) and often hugging closely to the coast.

    The following morning we drove in a replacement hire car to the Apostolos Andreas Monastery, which is almost at the tip of the peninsula, and a long way from the nearest settlement.Unfortunately, we were unable to go in to it, as it was in the process of being restored with a U.N./E.U. grant, although there didn't appear to be much activity....

  • The Karpas Peninsula - Theresa Hotel

    From Bafra we headed north-east back to the north coast. We were considering whether to stay the night on the Karpas Peninsula when our car started overheating, which decided the matter for us. Fortunately, we were near to the Theresa Hotel, and were able to spend a night there.

  • The Karpas Peninsula - Palloura Beach

    We eventually arrived at Palloura Beach near Bafra. It turned out to consist of a cabin selling food, some tables and chairs under a makeshift cover, sunbeds and parasols, a handful of people and a glorious, long beach, mostly unoccupied.
