Day 2

Karpaz Gate Marina to Kyrenia Ancient Harbor (48nm)

Departing from Karpaz Gate Marina, a days sailing along the northern coast will enable you to sample the history and charm of Kyrenia Ancient Harbour.

Although the harbor is not suitable for mooring or berthing, it is definitely worth visiting by tender. This bustling, horseshoe-shaped harbor was founded in the 10th century BC and is guarded at its entrance by the towering Kyrenia Castle.

Kyrenia Harbor is packed full of interesting shops, as well as cafes, restaurants and bars. Other points of interest in the area include the shipwreck museum, which houses one of the world’s oldest wrecks — a 4th century BC Greek merchant ship that sank less than a mile from an anchorage in Kyrenia

Bellapais Monastery, which dates back to the early 13th century, is in the nearby picturesque village of Bellapais, and St Hilarion Castle, which is named after St Hilarion, a hermit monk who fled from persecution in the Holy Lane and lived and died in a cave on the mountains.
