Kyrenia Harbour

Located in the beautiful and richly historic town of Kyrenia in northern Cyprus, Kyrenia Harbour is a small but charming place, where you will find everything from calm ambiance and soothing atmosphere to beautiful views and stunning surroundings.
The harbour is filled with yachts and boats, and the landscape is somewhat dominated by the fascinating Kyrenia Castle. When you visit Kyrenia Harbour you will find the beautiful sea stretching out ahead of you, and the breath-taking mountains providing a stunning backdrop to the harbour.
The castle which has Byzantine foundations was remodelled during Lusignan rule and later strengthened and enlarged with the addition of massive walls and bastions by the Venetians. It stands guard over the tiny harbour as it has done, hardly changed, over the last four and a half centuries.The Kyrenia harbour is surrounded by restaurants and bars that have been developed from buildings that were once Venetian dwellings or carob warehouses. These Kyrenia restaurants serve, for the most part, simple but delicious Turkish Cypriot cuisine with the emphasis being on locally caught fish.
