Coast/Beach

The coastline of Northern Cyprus is generally quite rugged but has many secluded and sandy beaches that are not crowded even in the summer months. Alagadi Turtle Beach is worth a visit during the day and by night you can experience the Loggerhead and Green turtles laying their eggs around May and the eggs hatching around August/ September, volunteers are welcomed to help guard the nests or to watch the newly hatched baby turtles struggle down to the water's edge.

Northern Cyprus has many historic and heritage sites. You can you wander around the temples, amphitheatres and admire the mosaics of Salamis, the most romantic ruined city left by the Romans. There is also the fairytale Castle of St Hilarion which commands an imposing position above the bay of Kyrenia, inspiring Disney for the castle in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Buffavento castles, and Bellapais Abbey are also worth a visit. If you prefer something a little more energetic there are a number of scuba diving clubs, horse riding and para gliding locally.
