NORTH CYPRUS (Girne / Kyrenia)

    Those who have visited Northern Cyprus will remember an island of golden beaches, brilliant weather, mountain forest and ancient castles. But most remember the warm, friendly faces of the people of the Turkish Cypriot people.

Northern Cyprus is one of the few places in the Mediterranean that has not been spoilt by tourism, still unknown and under developed.  It is a small country, only about 15 miles from north to south and 120 miles from east to west with a large mountain range running through the middle.

The seaside town of Girne (Kyrenia) with its surrounding mountain range is the most popular with tourist, with its beautiful harbor surrounded by cafes and bars, stunning beaches, ancient castles and fantastic shopping and restaurants.
