The weather is warming up, the days are getting longer and the holiday season is approaching!
If you are ready to enjoy the untouched nature and the deep blue sea that will help you relieve your accumulated tiredness, do not forget to take a look at the most fascinating coastal routes of Cyprus that we have prepared for you before making your holiday plans.
Here are the most beautiful beaches of Northern Cyprus that you can choose for this summer vacation!
1. Altinkum / Golden Beach
The wonderful Golden Beach is one of the Mediterranean Sea’s virgin beaches; it stretches 2 km along the Karpaz Peninsula with its clear blue water and golden sandy shoreline. All along Golden Beach you will have the captivating opportunity of walking bare footed for kilometres and refreshing yourself by taking a dive into the cool blue waters.
Embracing the Mediterranean with its long golden beaches, this beautiful beach and the inner parts of Karpaz are places that must be visited while on holiday in Northern Cyprus.
Karpaz is also home to a conservation park established for the famous Cypriot Donkeys. These cute donkeys, who are friendly and tame, wait in groups on the road and block the cars. All you have to do is open the window and offer something to eat. Thus, it is possible to capture very entertaining and funny photo frames. Carrot, cucumber and lettuce favorites.
2. Alagadi Beach
Alagadi, 18 km from the center of Kyrenia, is the longest sandy beach on the north coast and arguably one of the most beautiful spots on the island, and is often referred to as Turtle Beach because it is a place where Caretta Caretta turtles come ashore and lay their eggs.
You can observe the turtles that come to spawn in June and July, and the hatchlings that come out of the eggs in August. If photography is one of your hobbies, the hatching of the turtles will be an unforgettable scene for you.
Escape Beach, one of the most preferred beaches of Cyprus with its own restaurant, bar and club, is a great place to enjoy both the sea and the fun in summer.
This beach, which is only 5 km from Kyrenia, also offers the opportunity to do many water sports such as scuba diving, jet ski, canoe, and sea bike.
Glapsides Beach in Famagusta has everything you could want from a beach. With its miles of coastline, white sand and crystal clear waters, it is a magnificent place to soak up the island’s fascinating atmosphere. It’s also a great place to bring the kids, as the water is shallow and the sea calm.
Bonus: Karpaz Gate Marina
The first international standard modern marina in Northern Cyprus, Karpaz Gate Marina offers a luxurious experience in a unique and eye-catching bay in the north of the Karpaz peninsula.
The 5 Gold Anchor-rated marina has been designed to specifically cater for superyachts.
It offers a first-class holiday experience intertwined with nature. You can stay at the luxury hotel within the body of this award-winning property, and enjoy international cuisine and delicious cocktails at its private beach club and bar.
Surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean on three sides, this fascinating island country awaits you with hundreds of untouched coves to be discovered, beaches more enjoyable than the other, and countless historical beauties that you can visit during your trip.
We wish you a wonderful holiday in the enchanting atmosphere of the Mediterranean this summer!
