St. Hilarion Castle, The Harbour Castle in Kyrenia which houses the shipwreck museum are worth a visit. Bellapais Abbey with its wonderful views and restaurants (well worth a visit both day and night)! The harbour at night is wonderful with its many fish restaurants, bars and cafes. You can if you wish visit the night clubs and casinos situated in the larger hotels. Taxi fares are very cheap so no need to take the car.

In Kyrenia harbour the Turtle Watch Project Office will give you information on the beaches to visit when the turtles lay their eggs.
