    Northern Cyprus holiday highlights 

    Northern Cyprus offers a unique blend of the Mediterranean with a Turkish twist, providing a vibrant culture along an unspoilt coastline. Here are 10 highlights of visiting Northern Cyprus:

    Kyrenia Castle Northern Cyprus

    1. Panoramic castle views

    Visit Kyrenia Castle, which dates back to the 7th century and also houses the Shipwreck Museum. Travel back in time to ancient Salamis and see the impressive Roman and Byzantine ruins. Climb up to Kantara Castle, one of three mountain fortresses, and enjoy the panoramic views of Northern Cyprus.

    Northern Cyprus overview

    Northern Cyprus shares much of its history with Cyprus, with multiple civilisations fighting for control of the island including the Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines and later the Crusaders and Venetians before being conquered by the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century.  

    Northern Cyprus blends Anatolian Turkish heritage with the ancient civilisations that left their mark on the country over the years. Turkish is the main language spoken and Islam is the dominant religion. Northern Cyprus is a wonderful blend of the ancient and modern worlds, as the island’s culture and history continue to be celebrated through festivals, music, arts and crafts. 

    What to eat

    A delightful blend of Mediterranean and Turkish flavours, Northern Cyprus’ cuisine uses local fresh produce and adds olive oil, herbs and spices to enhance the natural flavours. 

    A fabulous way to experience the delicacies is to order a meze. You’ll get a selection of small dishes such as hummus, dolmas (stuffed grape leaves), grilled halloumi cheese, tzatziki and savoury pastries.  

    Other local delicacies include grilled or baked fish. Kebabs and lamb dishes are also traditional food in Northern Cyprus. When it comes to desserts, don’t miss baklava (layers of filo pastry with nuts and honey) or lokma (deep-fried dough balls soaked in syrup).
