North Cyprus is one of the most beautiful and popular island
holiday destinations in the Mediterranean.
A holiday in Cyprus offers the visitor beautiful natural attractions
of the Mediterranean, with unspoilt, unpolluted and uncrowded miles of coastline and
golden sands bathed in sunshine almost every day of the year; potentially some of the best
beaches in the Mediterranean.
The natural beauty of the island, the lovely climate, the warmth and
generosity of the Turkish Cypriot people and the abundant selection of fresh foods make
Northern Cyprus an unspoilt and non-commercialized haven.
There is virtually no crime to speak of, and this country is
reminiscent of UK standards long lost; where hospitality, politeness and the general
enjoyment of life are the daily norm.
In Northern Cyprus visitors will find a friendly population that still
welcomes British visitors. Prices and payment is often quoted in British pounds, traffic
drives on the left and Northern Cyprus has a lovely climate enabling you to enjoy the
sandy beaches, historical sites, and mountains.
Visitors to Northern Cyprus will also appreciate the inexpensive shops
and restaurants in Kyrenia. The old harbour in Kyrenia is replete with many pleasure
crafts, tourist excursion and yachts.
At the entrance to the harbour lies Kyrenia Castle. The original castle
was thought to have been built around the seventh century by Byzantines.
Love North Cyprus:
With its 9,000 years of history, 300 days of sunshine and over 200 miles of sandy
coastline, North Cyprus is back on the UK's holiday map as a viable year-round holiday
destination for Euro Free holidays.
Manolya Holiday Hotel:
Located in Northern Cyprus, Manolya Hotel is situated 10 kilometres from Girne (Kyrenia)
in the coastal village of Lapta and away from hustle and bustle of Girne.
