Peace and Freedom Day

Hi, we are going to be in Northern Cyprus for 20th July and wondered if anything special might be going on in the Kyrenia area?

In Lefkosia(Nicosia), there is normally a parade and laying of wreaths, whilst in Kyrenia there is the annual aerial display by the All stars aerobaticteams.net/turkish-stars-schedule.ht… .Normally starts about 5pm, over the harbour, but it does get packed and parking is a nightmare. You can get a great view up in Bellapais and its much cooler (Average temp in the Harbour will be 45 degrees!).

It is really worth making the effort to go to the Harbour for the air show, it is fantastic and you really cannot beat being there. There is also a parade earlier in the day with lots of speeches and marching. Another option is to book a boat so you get the benefit of being close by without the crowds. Not sure how much this would cost though.

As Cyprusjo mentions, a boat trip makes for a great viewing platform, Sabrina Yachting are taking bookings at £25 a head including Food

Thank you, the boat looks lovely, but would it just stay moored in the harbour for the day, or would you still go along the coast?

Normally they cruise up the coast westbound towards Lapta/Karsiyaka, drop anchor for swimming, snorkelling etc, Lunch and then head back for the airshow.

You are welcome Jo (and Jelly).
