As this was our first time in North Cyprus and we wanted to explore this side of the island, Pine Bay was the ideal place to base ourselves. Although situated about 15 minutes from Kyrenia town centre, this hotel is only 2 minutes from the bypass that takes you up and over the mountain to Nicosia and Famagusta. As we hired a car this was perfect for us to miss out the traffic in town. Rooms basic but have everything you need and were cleaned daily. The hotel food was nice. Traditional Turkish food, which was what we wanted. Staff helpful and friendly.
