Point of Interest
“An absolute must visit location - and anyway the Tourist Information Office is located here, so you'll want to pop in there anyway! If you want something to eat or drink there are plenty of spots here, but I'd suggest taking a look off some of the side alleys that lead off from the harbor, there are some delightful little cafes hidden away there.”

General Contractor
“When thinking about car rental in North Cyprus , as in any other country it is important to think about the fringe benefits of car hire. Rest assured that when you rent a car from Carrington, car rental services are included. These services includes free of charge car wash, inspection by our expert car mechanics, and electronic inspection to ensure your safety and pleasant driving experience”

It is 3 minutes by car from home (please note that part of Kennedy Avenue is actually renamed to Kapparis Avenue years back. Although both names appear on maps it is actually one certain street) ”

Establishment
“Take a windy steep drive up to Kantara Castle which served as a watch tower for Pirate raids and during it's long history was taken by Richard the Lionheart who subsequently sold it to the Knights Templar. The stunning coastal path and through Kaplica village leads to the Castle and on a clear day the drive will be worth it where you can take in the most stunning panoramic views. ”
