Girne (Kyrenia) is a busy town on the north coast of Cyprus, which we first visited in September 2004, and revisited in 2012..

The harbour, with the restaurants and bars, both outdoors and indoors, surrounding it, the spectacular background of the Pentadaktylos Besparmak (Five Finger) mountain range, and the boats coming and going, is a very pleasant place to while away time and watch the world go by.

A boat trip was a very enjoyable and leisurely way to see the coast, and included lunch and opportunities to swim.

For information about Kyrenia, go to cypnet

On our other Cyprus pages, you can find out about our tour of the Karpas Peninsula, and our visits to Salamis and Famagusta and historic sites in and around Kyrenia, some in positions affording outstanding views of the coast and surrounding countryside, as well as our experiences of hotels and car-hire, and a restaurant that we particularly enjoyed.

You can find our full album of pictures of Kyrenia and northern Cyprus taken in 2004 by clicking here, and you can see the pages from our 2012 visit to Northern Cyprus by clicking here .

      Glad you liked it. Your comment caused me to update it by adding a new link for our photos and a link to the pages for our return there in 2012.

    Your very nice page brings back good memories. Must be so much easier now flying via Larnaca rather than Istanbul. Could be tempted back.....
