Cyprus Paradise Experts Recommend
The Bellapais Monastery Village is located in Bellapais which is most definitely a perfect location to explore a fascinating world of architectural history. The Bellapais Abbey itself, a former home of British writer Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990), is also set on the flanks of the Five-finger (Kyrenia) Mountains in the beautiful hillside village - a Northern Cyprus historical value not to be missed! The delightful village of Bellapais is just around a 15-20 minute walk up the hill. Its popularity is due to the charming mix of traditional restaurants, cafes and shops, with quaint streets winding into the mountains, as well as the regular cultural festivals held in the area. With easy access to mountain trails, dotted with the colours of wild flowers and the fresh scent of herbs, walkers can grab the opportunity to examine the unspoilt, natural beauty of Northern Cyprus.
You can also enjoy spending time exploring the ancient delights of Kyrenia, which is conveniently situated only 2 miles away! In addition to its vibrant restaurants, shops cafes and bars, its picturesque harbour is a place of history and natural beauty. Once lined with warehouses, stored with fruits of the countryside awaiting export, these buildings are now mostly restaurants, all of which have tables and chairs lining the sparkling sea waters. It is also home to the famous Kyrenia Castle and its Shipwreck Museum, The Carob and Cyprus Life museum and The Icon Museum (located in the former Greek Orthodox Arkhangelos Church) - opposite this one you can also glimpse the remains of Byzantine catacombs, currently with a restaurant on top!

There is a small entrance fee and sun loungers and jet skis can also be rented. A restaurant is open during the summer for drinks and snacks.
