The harbour is lovely place to relax over a meal & or drink with plenty of restaurants & cafes to choose from. The food was really good from the several places we tried with very friendly staff.You can either relax before or after a trip around the shops or castle which are only a stroll away. A very worthwhile visit.

The harbour of Kyrenia dates back to the 10th century BC during Venetian times. As a port of great importance (1489) the Fort was built to protect the city against invasion. It is very attractive any time you visit it, with numerous bars and restaurant by the coast.

Kyrenia Harbour is steeped in history and is well worth a stroll around, you will of course have to run the gauntlet of the harbourside restaurants with the constant invitations patronise their premises. A visit to the castle is interesting although the museums are very basic.

The harbour could do with a tidy up and they may have a problem with the drains as you do get the occasional wiff of sewerage. All in all a very pleasant place to... More

Lovely place to eat, drink and relax or catch a boat trip. Not far to the shops either to keep the girls happy.

Really nice on a sunny day, lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. You cannot beat sitting down with a cold EFES watching the world go by.

Kyrenia harbour, is somewhere I would love to have visited 100 years ago, when it must have been fabulous. Sadly today's harbour area is dirty and unloved. The restaurants, bar one or two are mostly owned by one family, so be prepared for rip-off prices, dirty bathrooms, and hustling waiters. The local municipality, the antiquities department, and other various government... More

We drove up to the Abbey one morning and were two of maybe only half a dozen people there. It was so quiet and peaceful and the views of the coast were stunning.

its a must see for a day if your in cyprus because its traditional harbour with restaurants, bars, hotels and casinos littered although the waters edge! get there early to see the harbour in the light for some beautiful photos and watch the night descend and the star dance in the sky!
