North Cyprus Guide

Theres so much to North Cyprus, and here is a summary for you to enjoy.

 

North Cyprus Cuisine 

Food is often a reflection of the spirit with which cultures have grown and live. When it comes to North Cyprus, this is certainly true, their cuisine representing the local’s kind, patient and welcoming nature. Exploring the towns you’ll see cosy scenes of couples and families sharing meze platters, or wanderers taking a break in authentic cafes, drinking Turkish coffee whilst watching over a game of backgammon. Meals here provide the chance to mingle with others, share stories and most importantly to relax. North Cyprus cuisine is a big part of animating the atmosphere, and making guests feel settled and acquainted with the culture. The fruitful Cypriot environment means that most ingredients taste fresh and full of heart, grown and detailed with flavour by the locals that gives that inviting home cooked feel to them. 

 

North Cyprus Nightlife 

Being such a tranquil environment you may not expect much from the North Cyprus nightlife, and it is true that if you’re hoping for some Ibiza inspired non-stop partying you’ll probably be disappointed. This does not mean that there is nothing to do however, with many opportunities to keep you entertained as night falls. The scene in the evenings is one of extended relaxation, with café’s and bars offering candle lit dining or a warm and inviting environment lulled with atmospheric music.

 

North Cyprus Beaches 

Picture yourself walking along threads of white sand that glisten gold in the sun, and taking a dip in refreshing waters that illuminate turquoise close to the shore. This may sound a bit like the beginning to a therapeutic exercise of some sort, but it is in fact the truth when it comes to trying to describe North Cyprus’ beaches. They are a real defining point for the area, with some of the most picturesque and unspoilt of environments you’ll ever visit. The Karpaz peninsula for instance is perhaps the most luxurious of coastal temptation, with miles and miles of untouched empty beaches, all of which have their own diversity. The nature is also home to the occasional sea turtle and wild donkey, while overhead many exotic birds migrate through the skies at certain times of year. With this in mind, many choose to visit Karpaz for the solitary coves that offer a private escape on a slice of paradise, as opposed to the more crowded and activity orientated beaches. 

 

North Cyprus Activities 

It’s true to say that North Cyprus is mostly about relaxation. Those citrus groves, orchid trails and the sea salt air could work their magic on even the most stubborn workaholic! That’s not to say it hasn’t got a wild side too though. Whether you just want some fun distractions or an adrenaline rush with something adventurous, you’ll find it here. With the allure of those topaz waters, which are home to many exotic species, water sports are of course one of the most popular activities. Many of the public beaches will offer a range, especially in high season. There’s so much natural beauty to explore in the rugged exterior of North Cyprus, in particular the Kyrenia Mountains provide great inspiration for enthusiastic hikers. If walking up steep inclines isn’t so much your thing, how about a horse ride instead? It’s a brilliant way to catch the natural panoramic views of the region. For the calmer spirited activity seekers, a spot of fishing perhaps? Or a game of golf at the luxurious Korineum resort would suit those that are either experienced golfers or want to learn. Whatever you chose to do whilst here, you can be sure that it will be a totally unique experience, set to the Mediterranean scenery.

 

North Cyprus History 

In many ways, venturing into North Cyprus is like going on a great adventure. The island has seen so many heroes of legends and the past, and these have left their spirit in the many sites that are scattered amongst the scenery. Myth along with ancient history is a part of the islands foundations, weathered but proud alongside the Mediterranean nature. The architecture in particular is a reminder of the civilisations that lived here long, long ago, and add to the atmosphere a ghostly ambience of all the life that has passed through these dusty streets. Famagusta is a prime spot for exploration. Inside its walled city you’ll find churches, tombs and monasteries, all placid but with a charismatic presence amongst the quiet landscape. 

Famagusta is also home to what is considered to be the greatest ancient city in Cyprus: Salamis. The ruins here are a collection of fragments from a once glamorous and opulent environment. Much of the past mingles with the present, the old harbour in Kyrenia a beautiful backdrop to evening diners and pensive wanderers. 

Bellapais Abbey is a shrine to the grandeur of gothic architecture, with an inspiring design that will make you feel as though you’re in a fairy tale while you sip coffee in the shade of the gardens that surround it. The truly wonderful thing is that everything you’ll spot has some sort of a story attached to it, including the five finger mountain that watches over the region like a proud guardian. The scenery provides a constant source of conversation with the locals, its historical nature also being the cause for North Cyprus’ tranquillity. It is this that gives the island a feeling of being frozen in time, preserving its unique heritage and mystical charm.
