Charming old Kyrenia harbour is 12/14 mins drive away. Prices in Northern Cyprus are at least a third cheaper than in the UK and other European destinations and the local restaurants are so reasonably priced -Niazis in Kyrenia is a must! Watch turtles at nearby conservation site on sandy beach (Turtle Bay), scuba diving, swim in the warm Mediterranean sea even until late October and early November ), lovely walks around the island - orchid walks in springtime (guide book for walking in apartment), friendly locals, plenty of historic castles/abbeys to visit (Bellapais Abbey) (where Lawrence Durrell wrote 'Bitter Lemons'), also the Knight Templers castle towards the east of the island. Visit the 'Pan Handle' (Karpaz peninsula - recently reviewed in The Times) for miles of golden beaches with very few people - owner can recommend a fantastic restaurant up there where you can enjoy Sea Bream, chips and salad whilst watching the beautiful Mediterranean scenery.
Other Activities: turtle watching at the local bay, scuba diving in Kyrenia, local walks organised
Golf: For the golfers, there is a new 18 hole golf course at the Korineum Golf Club which is about 15 minutes from the apartment. It is cheaper to play out of high season and the club has some very good deals early spring or autumn/winter time. Please ask the owner about further details.
