“Nice for a stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013

This area is more touristy. lovely to walk around the harbour walls but everywhere else there are hawkers selling trips on boats etc...making us feel like v bad parents not availing of their great (??) offers...however, if there are many in your family the costs can be prohibitive.

“please don't avoid it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

Many people are warned to avoid to the Harbour because of the hassle! The hassle is nothing like that in other countires such as Turkey! If you feel uncomfortable, stop and tell the manager! The harbour has many restaurants to choose from, many boat trips, also the castle and the carob museum. Also it's the place to book your tandem paragliding jump. It is a fun place, a great place for people watching. You can either dine at restaurants that do set menus, or choose the ones that are a bit more classy. The prices are not really bad when you consider the location' Last year it was 6tl for a large beer! It has hussle and bussle and is truly beautiful I recommend trying one of the bars that look down over harbour , then you appreciate the true beauty of the horseshoe harbour, with the mosque, the church spire and the Kyrenia Mountain range as a wonderful back drop! Stunning!

“Amazing place to sit and watch the world go past!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

Arrived at the harbour just before lunch and there were deliveries and the hustle and bustle you would expect. Restaurants getting ready for lunch time trade etc. There are lots of places to sit and take the load off as you watch the world go past. There are beautiful flowers and everyone we met were very welcoming.
Did not feel pressured or harassed. The place just had a lovely vibe.

The harbour is very pretty with lots of different boats and a long sea wall to walk along . There are plenty of restaurants to sit and enjoy a meal or a drink while enjoying the scenery

“Small Harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

The harbour is relatively small with a Tourist Information Office at the start of the harbour. The Castle is at the other end. There are bars and restaurants all round the harbour. It was not very busy in the day during this time of year.
