On The hillside, 1/2 an hour from Kyrenia, is an old Castle and Church from more than 1000 years ago. There is a bit of a walk from The parkingstation, but its worth it, to walk from The first point up to The third. On...More
My husband and I have special interest to castles, form the beginning it was a must-go place for us! A real wow, St.Hilarion is really beutiful though half ruined and the nature around is just breath-taking. Worth the visit
This castle is situated high up on the Kyrenia Mountains and built on 3 levels after climbing steep steps, but it’s worth the climb to stare out at the view and clamber over the ruins. It’s not large but nice to visit for a couple...More
St Hilarion Castle is well worth a visit - just 20 minutes from Kyrenia and easy to find. The entrance fee is very cheap. Make sure that you have plenty of time as the site is huge. There are a lot of stairs so you...More

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

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.
