North Cyprus is more than holidays in Kyrenia and holidays in Famagusta where travellers can enjoy sun, sand and sea of North Cyprus .But addition to charming hotels with modern facilities where you can enjoy traditional Mediterranean holidays, Kyrenia Holidays and Famagusta Holidays holidays offer a chance to discover much more to discerning travellers North Cyprus is the hidden Jewel of the Mediterranean; an exquisite and unspoilt island laid open for you to explore; echoing times gone by with its rustic villages, ancient towns, harbours, castles and slow pace of life.North Cyprus is practically bursting with culture, hospitality and history. Soaked in the glorious Mediterranean sun and located only 40 miles from Turkey, the coastline of Northern Cyprus is hemmed in by utterly idyllic golden sandy beaches, whilst inland; the terrain gives way to rolling hills and breathtaking mountain ranges. This is complimented by the heady scent of Honeysuckle and Jasmine flowers, of which the whole island seems to be awash, giving these landscapes a surreal and dreamlike quality. Nestled within three continents, Northern Cyprus offers you an endless array of things to do and see, or not, if you wish to simply relax with a spot of fishing or just lie back and indulge in the sunshine! For the more energetic, there are many castles to be explored and historical cities and buildings to be appreciated. The beaches offer water sports such as jet skiing and scuba diving, or you can sail the seas on one of the many wonderful boating excursions available. The maze-like towns are full of shops selling traditional handicrafts as well as more modern outlets selling clothes, jewellery and perfume, to satisfy even the most enthusiastic of shoppers. Nightlife centres on eating out, which is not a surprise given the wonderful cuisine of the Turkish Cypriots who inhabit the island. Mezes (a vast array of hot and cold appetizers), Kebabs, fresh grilled fish, and stews filled with herbs and spices, with influences from Turkey, the Middle East and Mediterranean, make up a typical meal. Fruits, syrupy desserts, Turkish teas and coffees and an optional glass of Raki (an alcoholic aniseed drink) will round up your dining experience, as will the welcoming and cheery locals clinking their glasses on the surrounding tables. North Cyprus is a vibrant, warm and blissful island which will leave you with the fondest memories and is guaranteed to be one destination you will want to visit time and time again. The island of Cyprus is considered to be a cradle of western civilization. The ancient towns of Famagusta, Kyrenia, Karpaz, Lefke, Guzelyurt, Nicosia or Yeni Iskele have many historical places which are worth seeing.

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia

Northern Cyprus Kyrenia, is home to the harbour city of Kyrenia and some of the most amazing sites in Cyprus. Although many holiday makers may be forgiven for thinking that Kyrenia is just a harbour town, there really is a lot more to see and do. Filled with historical buildings, superb scenery, spectacular natural un-spoilt sandy beaches, and much more, Kyrenia makes the perfect destination for any holiday.

The calming atmosphere of this beautiful sea-front city makes holidaying in Kyrenia a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable experience. The old town of Kyrenia is filled with whitewashed buildings and the ruins of walls and towers that once protected this city from attack. Whilst the city of Kyrenia may seem quite and asleep during the day, once the sun sets the atmosphere is transformed as restaurant and tavern owners prepare for the night and the entertainment it brings.

Northern Cyprus Nicosia

Northern Cyprus Nicosia

Ledra Street is in the middle of the walled city. The street has historically been the busiest shopping street of the capital and adjacent streets lead to the most lively part of the old city with narrow streets, boutiques, bars and art-cafés. The street today is a historic monument on its own. It is about 1 km (0.6 mi) long and connects the south and north parts of the old city. During the EOKA struggle that ran from 1955–1959, the street acquired the informal nickname The Murder Mile in reference to the frequent targeting of the British colonialists by nationalist fighters along its course.[13][14] In 1963, during the outbreak of hostilities between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities, following the announcement of amendments to the Cypriot Constitution, Turkish Cypriots withdrew to the northern part of Nicosia which became one of the many Turkish Cypriot enclaves which existed throughout the island. Various streets which ran between the northern and southern part of the city, including Ledra Street, were blockaded. During the Turkish army invasion of Cyprus in 1974, Turkish troops occupied northern Nicosia (as well as the northern part of Cyprus). A buffer zone was established across the island along the ceasefire line to separate the northern Turkish controlled part of the island, and the south. The buffer zone runs through Ledra Street. After many failed attempts on reaching agreement between the two communities, Ledra Street was reopened on 3 April 2008.
