Day-trip to North Cyprus
The day trip to North Cyprus constitutes a real change from the south also for non-divers. The trip to North starts 7:00am. By 9:00am we reach the green slopes along the steep coast, which welcomes you with some spectacular sights and stunning views. The narrow band between the sea and the chain of the Pentadaktylos Mountains is a mere 5km stretch. Within this band flourishes a rich nature with dark green forests and lush fields. White beaches and clear water are inviting you for swimming and snorkelling.
After a relaxing day on the beach and the return of the divers, we continue our journey into the old Venetian harbour of Kerynia. Surrounded by carefully restored Ottoman houses we take our lunch directly atop the harbour wall, which is included in the price. Following the refreshment, we`ll venture the old town of Kerynia for shopping and sightseeing within this fundamentally different culture of North Cyprus. Around 16:45pm we meet again at the parking slot before to travel back to Aldiana to be punctual for dinner at about 19:00pm.
Hop in, adventure is waiting!
