Vacation rentals in Northern Cyprus
The north of the Mediterranean island is at least as worth seeing as the south and has accordingly also a wide offer of holiday accommodations. The selection is particularly large on the north coast, where you will find picturesque seaside resorts such as Karakum, Babceli, Zeytinlik or Incesu. Even if you need a lot of space for a holiday with your family, you will find it in any case thanks to the numerous villa-like vacation rentals with pool. While culture lovers are attracted to Nicosia as an alternative, nature lovers move into a holiday apartment on the lonely north-eastern tip of Cyprus.
Holidays in Northern Cyprus
Travelers and Activities
In ancient times Cyprus was one of the strongholds of Hellenistic civilization. Put on your adventurer's hat and search for traces in the numerous historical cities. In addition to the ancient town of Farmagusta, with its cosy old town and the Othello Tower, you can also visit the Cyrenean Gate and St. Hilarion Castle, known as the "Castle of 1,000 Apartments". Another highlight is the ancient ruined city of Salami, whose columns, baths and theatre still bear witness to its former splendour. The cultural offer is rounded off by high-class museums such as the Schiffswrack Museum and the Barbarian Museum.
Things to know
The ideal travel period depends entirely on how you would like to organise your holiday in Northern Cyprus. While bathers get their money's worth with temperatures around the 30 degree mark between the end of May and the beginning of October, culture lovers choose the cooler months of March, April, October and November for their explorations.
The "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" is recognised under international law exclusively by Turkey. Accordingly, the area is nevertheless officially part of the Republic of Cyprus and thus of the EU.
Top 3 travel tips
Nicosia is undoubtedly the cultural centre of Cyprus, thanks not least to sights such as St. John's Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace. There are also numerous exhibitions such as the Cyprus Museum, the Leventis City Museum and the Byzantine Museum.2. Enjoy Cypriot specialities
The cuisine of Northern Cyprus is almost identical to that of the South. Accordingly, in the cosy taverns you will be served specialities such as grilled sheep's cheese (hallúmi), a hearty grill skewer (stifádo) and stuffed squid (supjés).3. Undertake a jeep safari into the Troodos Mountains
Also the breathtaking nature should not be neglected during a holiday on the Mediterranean island. If you want to experience the original Cyprus, take part in a jeep safari into the Troodos Mountains, which will take you to breathtaking mountain peaks, picturesque mountain villages and cascading waterfalls.
