Two-centre Holidays in Kyrenia and Famagusta
The towns of Kyrenia and Famagusta are both excellent places to stay and represent two different characteristics of Northern Cyprus. Best know today for its stunningly beautiful harbour and magnificent castle, Kyrenia began as a shipping and trade port and over the centuries, it has developed into a wonderful holiday destination. Here you will discover a seemingly never-ending variety of restaurants, shops, bars and tavernas and a lively yet relaxing way of life. The Kyrenia region is an ideal base for visiting Bellapais Village, St. Hilarion Castle and the west of the island, and has numerous, excellent hotels in and around the resort.
By contrast, Famagusta has more of an exotic, Middle Eastern atmosphere. Steeped in ancient history, it has some of the world’s best beaches nearby and is an excellent starting point for visiting the incredible ruins of the city of Salamis and the Karpaz Penunsula. Famagusta itself is a fascinating place, full of delights to stimulate all the senses. The ancient Venetian walls and the old city they surround, are a fascinating glimpse into the varied history of Cyprus and the coffee shops, restaurants and cafes are a true delight. The famed Patek’s Patisserie is bound to make you abandon any thoughts of a holiday diet! Here and nearby, the hotels tend to be larger resorts with a multitude of facilities and a sandy beach.
It is a difficult choice, so we can make it easier for you! If you have the time to spend, then why not combine the two destinations? This will make a holiday that you will remember forever, and for all the right reasons. Relax on the beach near Famagusta, spend time seeing the sights when you feel refreshed, or spend all your time exploring all this remarkable island has to offer.
Depending on where you travel from in the UK, you will arrive at either Ercan International Airport in Northern Cyprus, or Larnaca Airport in the south. You can decide which way round, but from there, we will transfer you to your chosen accommodation in either Kyrenia or Famagusta. Enjoy your stay, and after a few days, we will transfer you to your second accommodation. We can make all the arrangements and if you wish, can also arrange for a rental car to be supplied to you in either or both locations. Our trained, knowledgeable and experienced reservations staff can help you in choosing where you would like to stay and we will make all the arrangements to ensure your holiday is a completely trouble free and enjoyable experience.
