About KYRENIA HOLIDAYS
Kyrenia is a small picturesque harbour town situated on the northern coast of the island, and said to date from the 10th century BC. The jewel in the crown of this ancient fishing village is its delightfully quaint harbour, with its wide variety of restaurants, cafes and bars. Day or night, the harbour is an ideal place to while away the hours, as you take in the spectacular views of Kyrenia castle. The ‘Five Finger’ mountain range forms a stunning backdrop to the town, and has several beautiful villages nestled within. One of these, Bellapais, is known for its lovely abbey and the ‘Tree of Idleness’, which was made famous in Gerald Durrell’s novel ‘Bitter Lemons’. Most hotels are situated on the outskirts of Kyrenia, some enjoying a setting in charming old villages at the foothills of the mountains.
