Cyprus Premier Experts Recommend

You may be tempted to spend every waking moment enjoying the luxurious facilities of the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel and Casino, but there are some fabulous shops, markets, lively bars, historic attractions and places to visit in nearby Kyrenia. Hop aboard the hotel’s courtesy bus service which operates at set times. In approx.15 minutes you will be in the heart of the town and its historical centre around the scenic harbour and impressive castle.

The Peace and Freedom Museum is a short drive away and includes a war memorial monument. Walkers will enjoy the fresh air on a visit to the neighbouring town of Lapta, about 10 minutes’ drive west of Kyrenia. It has a pleasant 1.5km promenade for strolling beside the Mediterranean Sea with sensational views and unmissable photo ops!

Even closer to the hotel is Lambousa, which has a rich history and fascinating structures, including Roman-era fish tanks. These large rectangular pools were cut by hand out of the rock. The remains of the Roman harbour wall are worth visiting along with two local churches which can be admired from the outside.

If you decide to explore independently with a hire car, the fascinating Bronze Age cemetery in the beautiful mountain village of Karaman is worth the drive. Ask the hotel’s concierge or Tour Rep for directions, according to your method of transport.
