About North Cyprus

Pristine white beaches, glorious sun, crystal clear sea and delicious culinary experiences make North Cyprus one of the best kept secrets of the Mediterranean. With its natural beauty, North Cyprus is attracting more and more foreign buyers and tourists.

The sunny weather with 340 days of sunshine a year is of course a big reason why North Cyprus is so popular. Here you can enjoy the sun and swim all year round. With its pleasant climate, the island has also become an obvious destination for golfers who devote themselves to their sport all year long. The whole of North Cyprus is blessed with beautiful scenery with mile-long beaches and fabulous mountain ranges. Here you find national parks with wild donkeys and pristine coves where sea turtles lay their eggs.

With the typical character of a Mediterranean city, Kyrenia has long been a centre of tourism on the island. Kyrenia’s iconic harbour and picturesque tourist magnet is an absolute must to visit. In the harbour there is always life and movement, especially in the evening when the sun goes down and hundreds of golden yellow lanterns light up. Here you can wander between bars and local restaurants, order freshly caught tuna and enjoy the romantic breeze of the Mediterranean.

Many fall in love with North Cyprus so much that they choose to settle here permanently. A high quality of life at very low cost of living makes this place ideal for aficionados.
