Kyrenia Castle dominates the marina and harbour, and though it has been rebuilt over the years, it dates from the 7th century.  Be sure to visit the Shipwreck Museum inside the castle, where you can see a wooden merchant ship from 306BC.  This well preserved wreck was raised from the sea in 1967, and today you can see a version of the ship on Cypriot Euro 50, 20 and 10 cent coins.

Outdoor enthusiasts will adore this wonderful part of Cyprus, and the coast offers swimming, sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing, while hiking, climbing, horse riding and cycling are popular in the Kyrenia area and inland.
