Having visited this place on many occassions we always get the feeling that so much more can be done to this place. Instead all you usually get is a rubbish strewn beach!! such a pity!!

We went with the turtle project people one night to monitor the turtles coming onto the beach and laying eggs. We go to the project every year and support them as they do brilliant work. We sat around the beach for about 3 hours monitoring the 3 bays, when a loggerhead turtle came up the beach. She laid about 80... More

Free, sandy and somewhat littered. I only go there because it is so close to Kyrenia and free. The bottom is nice, in the sense that you have fine sand all the way.

The beach is undeveloped and very quiet in the week. There is a pleasant restaurant with reasonable food and from which you can hire beach umbrellas for a very reasonable 4TL per day.

We took a coach trip along the peninsula which proved to be uneventful and too long. However the final stop at Turtle beach made up for it all. What a beautiful beach and well served by changing rooms and a decent little café. Well worth a visit.

The surrounding countryside is very sparse and barren as you might expect. The trip up and around the 'panhandle' as it is called was relaxing but not inspiring . The beach is gloriously unspoilt and the water perfect for swimming which is a must on this beach.

Alagadi beach has the longest sandy beach that I have seen in Kyrenia. It is great for swimming, relaxing. Much cleaner than other beaches as it is protected and restricted for certain activities.

This is my idea of heaven - a quiet, beautiful beach with unspoilt views - no sunbeds or loud tacky tourists. It is a paradise. We went to both the Turtle Beach with the restaurant (pleasant but basic) and the cove with no facilities. The water is crystal clear but would recommend water shoes as some areas are a little...

The sea is chrystal blue and soooo clean. Visiting the beach is like a meditation. Every year people go there with their children to watch the turtles coming out of the sea.

I can see this beach would not appeal to everyone. There are no sunbeds, umberellas or facilities. Howevere there is a nice beach café that is reasonably priced and does good food. Try the sea bass. As this is a protected area there are no hotels etc. and the beach is littered with sand lillies and wild orchids. Lovely in... More
