Immediate area/things to do: Blue Bay is on the coast near the village of Bahceli about 20 minutes drive from Kyrenia. The area is ideal for swimming, sailing, snorkeling, walking, bird watching, horse riding, and mountaineering. There is a championship golf course about 15 minutes to the West. To the east you will find wonderful secluded beaches – some of the best in the Mediterranean, e.g. Karpas beach – and traditional unspoilt N Cyprus villages. Lara beach, with sun beds, shades and a small café, is 15 minutes drive West. Alagadi, an official Turtle Watch beach is 10 minutes from Blue Bay. Acapulco, a hotel complex with all facilities including an aqua park bars and restaurants, is about 20 mins away.
Further afield: Kyrenia is excellent for shopping for Turkish crafts (e.g. excellent Turkish delight and kilims) and there are lovely restaurants around the old harbor, specializing in seafood. There are many museums and castles in the area, - including a particularly spectacular castle and museum in Kyrenia and the beautiful Bellapais Abbey on the hill above Kyrenia with spectacular views of the coast. There are several excellent restaurants in Bellapais village, all with panoramic views. Nearby Kantara castle is a crusader fortress built into the hilltop in a stunning location with wonderful views across the island.
You can visit Famagusta (Gazimagusa) to see the Roman City of Salamis. In Nicosia (Lefkosa) you can see the beautiful Selimiye Mosque, and The Great Turkish Bath which dates back to the Ottoman period. It is also nice to walk the old streets and browse around the interesting little shops.
Restaurants/shops: Nearby Bahceli is a very traditional village, with a small shop. Esentepe village, approximately 8 minutes drive away, has a mini-mart and good restaurants with excellent food at very reasonable prices. There are other restaurants a short drive away including one at the entrance to Blue Bay. There are small supermarkets close by and a large hypermarket on the road to Kyrenia.
I have run holiday lets in Cornwall for several years. I also enjoy staying abroad in rented properties rather than hotels and and so know what is needed to make a comfortable home from home. I aim to provide everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one.
DAVID BEER purchased this apartment in 2008
The area is great for walking, it is close enough to the town of Kyrenia for those who want shops and nightlife, but in a peaceful location, with sea views, which is what I think most holiday makers need. It's a beautiful site with well maintained gardens and a pool and a gym.
2 pools, gym, easy walk to a beach (pebbly) but easy drive to lovely unspoilt sandy beaches. Golf course and water park nearby for the sporty. Bar/restaurant at the entrance so no need to drive for an evening drink or meal. Lie in bed and look out at the sea. Bliss!
Just returned from a lovely week at Blue Bay.The apartment is well equipped and we only used the comfortable upstairs bedroom as there was just the two of us.
You do need a hire car, but they are cheap and there are plenty of local good restaurants close by including one just outside the apartment complex.
Still hot in October in Cyprus but the apartment has air conditioning. All in all, a good spot for the north coast.
If you want peace, quiet and tranquility, then this little holiday complex is what you would be looking for. We loved our stay here. The apartment was clean and tidy with most things that you need. Most appreciated was the washing machine and dishwasher! The huge pool and baby pool area is lovely. There is a lovely little bar (Karga) just outside the complex and managed by Mehmet and Michelle, and it is a nice bar to visit, have a couple of sun-downers and chat to some of the ex-pats and locals.
North Cyprus has so much to offer and a wonderful holiday destination. Having been to Cyprus many times before, it was great to revisit some of the places seen before and discover many new ones like the most incredible Golden Beach in the Karpas - a highly recommended drive to (about 1 hour 45 mins from the apartment). Oh and yes you need a car! Which airport to fly in to? Larnaca or Ercan? Makes no difference really both are pretty equal distance, but don't hire a car from Larnaca airport and drive to the apartment. Best to hire direct in North Cyprus.
A highly recommended apartment - thanks David.
The apartment is on a small, lpw rise complex. There is a gym and pool on site. The apartment was clean and very well equiped, there was everything we needed for a three week stay. You do need a car becasue the complex is quite isolated. The bar/restaurant beside the complex was closed in January but hardly any other apartments were occupied at the time we were here. We enjoyed our stay there so much we have already booked to go back later this year.
This is a nice spacious apartment on a small complex. The furnishings and the appliances are are of a high standard and the whole apartment has a clean modern feeling about it. It was clean on arrival. Complex is well maintained with a small gym and a good pool and childrens' pool.
The pools are completely unfenced though and are open 24 hours a day, if you have young children this could be an issue.
It is in a very quiet area and you do need a car for everything - even for getting bread and milk in the morning, but the fridge in the apartment is large so you can stock up. There is one bar within walking distance and it has free WIFI.
Blue Bay is a lovely quiet site and we found it a great place for a first visit to North Cyrus. No hesitation in recommending it!
I spent a lovely week at Blue Bay with my parents. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time and enjoyed using the well-equipped gym. This is excellent value as the provisions in the apartment are of a very high standard. It's quite close to good beaches but you do need a car to get around as Blue Bay is in a very secluded spot on a cliff top. A great introduction to beautiful N Cyprus. Be warned, Cyprus is very hot in July and August!
We had a fantastic week staying here! :) We found everything just as explained and by the look on the pictures. The apartment was well equipped located close to the beach. We also used the pool and the gym at the area frequently. This is a perfect place to stay if you want relaxation, sun and sea.There are also nice diving sites close by.
I also strongly advise to rent a car, as there are many nice and interesting places to see around in North Cyprus.
