Kyrenian Mountains, Coast and Castles – March 10th – March 17th

‘Coasts, Castles and Kyrenian Mountains’ definitely describes this holiday well. During our week in North Cyprus we encountered all of these.

Our walks took us by lakes and up into the mountains with many wild flowers on the way.

One of the highlights was the visit to the stunning St Hilarion Castle. Perched high on a mountain top not far from our base near Kyrenia, it was once home to the Lusignan Kings and is a fascinating place to visit, though it definitely requires a head for heights!

Other memorable visits were the castle at Kyrenia and Bellapais Abbey.
With its mixture of walking and sightseeing this was a truly memorable holiday.
