All reviews worth the climb royal apartments half way amazing views walt disney st hilarion flip flops well worth the effort bottle of water homemade lemonade highest point three levels sensible shoes car park hand rails walking shoes long climb
Plenty of steps to climb, and some are quite steep.
The views are more than worth the effort, with spectacular scenery from the different parts of the castle. Apparently the castle is the base for the Disney castle and is easy to see why.
Well worth the drive! Bring some water with you and give it plenty of time. The views are amazing!
It does however involve a lot of steps so you need to be reasonably physically able to enjoy this treat.
Most spectacular castle setting I have seen. You need to be reasonably fit to climb to the top!
Drinks at the cafe near the entrance are a rip off and coffee is terrible as well ! Avoid !
View from the top amazing.
This castle is well worth the visit for the spectacular views. One word of warning though you must be pretty fit and wear good footwear as it's a big climb on multiple levels (stone stairs but uneven and of varying size) plus climbs in areas...More
We saw this site on a beautiful sunny morning. It's a bit of a climb (especially if you want to reach the royal appartments at the top) but I think the views are worth it.
Steps are more than a little dodgy in places, and...More

About twenty minutes out of Kyrenia (Girne) a wonderful castle set in the Five Finger Mountain range in Northern Cyprus. The castle is on three levels (lower, middle and upper). It's about 500 steps from the middle to upper but so worth doing for the...More
Took us to the old times! Fascinating castle of Byzantine times provides beautiful view of Kyrenia and Mediterranean Sea. It consists of many sections and really astonishing how they build it so high to the mountains hundreds years ago.
I will be traveling to Cyprus (Larnaca) with my husband in September. Due to logistics and short time available we have one day to visit Northern Cyprus. How to do that? Can you recommend any tours doing such trips from Larnaca, Agia Napa or Nicosia? What about public buses, are there connections between North and South Cyprus? Has anyone rented a car in North Nicosia? Any recommendations? Obviously we would like to see as much as possible and do it on a budget. We were thinking of going...More

Hi. there are buses that you can get to nicosia. (south side) and then walk over the border at ledra crossing and then hire a car from there OR you can get a bus to kyrenia from nicosia (north) sorry i don't have any information on buses but you could email or contact cyprusbooking . com (sorry I'm not sure i can put web links in so if you put in www . cyprus booking . com) without any spaces, the should help you to get to the web site and make plans to visit the north for a day.

Nort Cyprus trip ideas (7 Replies)
Hi! I'll be staying in Kyrenia for three days in August during my trip to Cyprus. I'll be with a rental car and just want to gather some ideas of what to see in the Northern part. I'll go to St. Hilarion Castle and most probably to Famagusta. Is there anything else that's a so-called must-see in the North. Also, which beaches are the best, let's say not more than an hour/hour and a half drive from Kyrenia? Thanks

Hi, When you go to Famagusta I'd go to palm beach or drive up towards to karpas to Salamis there's a nice beach there and the ruins if your interested? Also further up past Bogas is Bafra bay there's a stunning beach there it's next to the Kaya Artemis hotel! All the best
Getting to St. Hilarion Castle from Nicosia (5 Replies)
Hi Guys, I'm travelling Cyprus over the next couple of days, I'll be based in Larnaca.We're hoping to leave at 7am to get to Nicosia on a rental car and then make our way to Kyrenia on public transport. We want to see the castle and also check out St. Hilarion Castle finishing around sunset. Then making our way back to Nicosia and having dinner there. What's the most cost and time effective way of going to St. Hilarion Castle with the limited time we have? From my research it seems...More

There is no bus to St Hilarion Castle, so you will have to get a taxi from Kyrenia up to the castle and then pre-arrange one back again, or have them wait for you for a couple of hours if you plan on walking to the top... well worth it, but one hell of a steep walk up. That said it may be cheaper and more convenient to hire a car North side for a day.
