Beaches, prices and info about Kyrenia

Hello Everyone

I am coming to Northern Cyprus for the first time in Sept 09. We are staying in Alsancak near Kyrenia and I wondered if anyone knows the area and knows if there are any restaurants in Alsancak itself or if we will need to go into Kyrenia.

Also I was wondering how much a meal and drink normally cost? I am really unsure how expensive it is there.

Finally I am getting a bit confused about beaches, I have read that there are some nice beaches in Alsancak but from what I can make out they are private beaches?

Any help would be great.

If you search this forum you will find lots of info on beaches, restaurants etc. There are a lot of restaurants in the Alsancak area - look for a recent post from me which lists quite a few within a 15 minute drive, some in Alsancak itself. You will probably find you spend around £15 per head but it depends on what you eat and how much and how much and what you drink. If you stick to Cypriot food and Cypriot branded drinks you will save a lot of money. The best value are the mezes which run out at about £15 for all you can eat and most include coffee and liquor at the end.

There are both private and public beaches in the area and which you prefer is a personal choice. The private ones are cleaned daily (public ones not) and the price of access included lounger, umbrella and access to facilities like lockers, showers, loos. Some people like this very "developed" but comfortable experience. Other people like to find a secluded cove and do their own thing....

You'll have a fab time I'm sure.
