Take a break from the breath-taking beaches and explore the rest of North Cyprus. Head to the narrowest point of the island, Karpaz Peninsula, and discover gorgeous ruins and unbelievable, rugged scenery covered in cypress and pine trees. Head here in July or August to watch the birth of loggerheaded turtles. Walk along the same path as the ancient Greeks and Romans at charming coastal ruins like the ancient city and palace of Vuni, and the Roman cities of Lapta and Soli in the west.
Discover the Kantara Castle, one of three in the Five Finger Mountains that were built by the Byzantines to fortify the island, and first mentioned by Richard the Lionheart. Long since deserted, the castle makes a wonderful spot to look out on the Mediterranean. North Cyprus also has several historic churches scattered across the countryside, one of which is the Ayios Philon Church perched on the north coast and dates to the 4th century.
Whether you want to discover the marine world, remnants of the past, or just have a lie in on the sand, you’ll be swept away by your holiday in North Cyprus.
