Further Details:

An evening visit to the harbour is essential. There are numerous restaurants to choose from. Choose one with a balcony overlooking the harbour or a rooftop location. Some nice ones right on the water front. The harbour is traffic free. It may be possible to park on the hill down to the harbour, otherwise park in the castle car park. For big meat eaters a visit to Niazis (in centre of town opposite Dome hotel) for 'The Full Kebab' is recommended. The Lagoon (opposite) is also owned by Niazis, but fish.

There are dive schools based in the harbour and numerous day trips including visits to beaches, picnics and snorkeling. 'Sail Cyprus' the first Boat as you come into the old harbour next to the tourist information office has been recommended. About £20 for the day inc. lunch. Night trips are also available. The historic castle is located at the eastern end of the harbour and also worth a visit for those interested in the history.

Bellapais has several wonderful restaurants with a perfect for atmosphere for alfresco dining and is just a 15 minute walk. The owners will usually arrange a free taxi from/to the villa. Kybele is our favourite - excellent mezes. If there is a concert during your stay, book the table nearest the abbey. The Bell Tower is also worth a visit. Bellapais Gardens Hotel (2 min walk towards Kyrenia from abbey) does a great moussaka.

Castles: The crusaders left behind three castles on the Five Finger Mountains: Kantara, Buffavento and St. Hilarion. The latter is the best. You have to pay a small fee to go right to the top, but worth it. Buffavento Castle is only accessible after quite a strenuous walk and a scary drive. Those fit enough to do so will not be disappointed by the view. There are organised mountain walks, or a mountain jeep safari. The tourist office in the harbour will be able to provide all the details.
