Excursions from Five Fingers Bungalows

Here are some suggestions of things to do for half a day

Walk into the village (5/10 minutes) and have a drink/ice cream there before making purchases from the mini-market and walking back.
Catch a dolmus into Kyrenia.  Arif can phone and arrange for you to be collected from Five Fingers.  A Dolmus is a shared taxi (Ford Transit sized), departs from Ozankoy on the hour every hour and costs about 40p pp! You can return by Dolmus or catch a taxi (cost 4/5)
In Kyrenia town you can shop and visit the harbour for a drink
Take another visit to Kyrenia and walk over Kyrenia Castle and visit the very interesting ship museum (the oldest boat ever recovered from the sea) in the castle.
St Hillarion Castle - At the top of the mountains immediately behind Kyrenia with tremendous views over Cyprus
Visit Lara beach - A nice sandy beach about 10 minutes drive from Five Fingers
Visit Alagadi Beach - This is a beautiful beach.  The beach is closed at night time May-Oct as Turtles nest here.  Viewing of the turtles can be arranged in May/June when the turtles come to lay their eggs and the baby turtles hatch Aug/Sep
Bellapais Abbey - You do not need to drive to Bellapais as there is a circular walk from Ozankoy to Bellapais but it is uphill and will take about an hour to get there.
Visit the Pottery outside Kyrenia. See the Potters and artists at work and have plate(s), ash trays etc made to your own design.
Visit Nicosia (Lefkosa)
For Ramblers we can provide a book showing walks.

For those staying two weeks or longer we suggest a few longer excursions: 

Karpas peninsular -  Plenty more Turtle beaches and spot a few wild donkeys. (The Cypriots released their donkeys at the tip of the peninsular when they were no longer needed and they have bred and can roam freely) This is a long way and so we suggest staying at the Park Hotel for two/three nights.  This will then give you the opportunity of also seeing Famagusta, Salamis ( a large site which goes back to 11th century BC and St Barnabus church and icon museum
Visit Guzelyurt This area is the Cypress area of the island with many groves of oranges lemons and grapefruits. This can be combined with Visits to Soli and/or Voni, two archeological sites.
A visit to Famagusta combined with Salamis and St Barnabas monastery makes for a splendid day with great variety. 

If staying at Five Fingers, Arif will be pleased to give you more details on any of the above although if you wish to book a hotel when you visit Karpas we will be happy to arrange this in advance.


For your evening meals Arif, who used to run a restaurant, will  be pleased to cook you a meal.  Ozankoy offers a great choice of restaurants
