For visiting Cyprus, it’s very convenient to rent a car.
There are some restrictions, because of the insurance, and it’s not always possible to visit North Cyprus by car from the South. When you rent a car in the North, then you are not allowed to go South.
However, rules may change, so check everything shortly before traveling.
Shipwreck Museum is also a must-visit place in Kyrenia.
You’ll see there a ship from the period of the Hellenistic kingdoms founded after the death of Alexander; so something very old and very unique! Highly recommend!
The other question that may come immediately to mind: is it safe in Northern Cyprus? -It is safe. It’s not like e.g., North and South Korea. Anyway, I still recommend to check the current situation before visiting Northern Cyprus, things may change, rules may change.
If Northern Cyprus is not a “real country”, why do I have a month about it on my blog?
Well, I visited the whole island of Cyprus, and both, southern and northern parts are very interesting for tourists. I also felt it would be a bit unfair to describe northern part while talking about the Republic of Cyprus.
