Venetian Harbour

The romantic old, horseshoe shaped Girne harbour is located directly next to the Girne Castle. Originally built by the roman’s to protect the city of Girne from sea raids it now caters to the needs of friendlier visitors. The harbour section closest to the Girne Castle still provides anchorage for small fishing boats while the rest of the old harbour accommodates locals as well as visiting tourists alike with its cafes, restaurants and tour boats.

Tip: It is a great place for “people watching”! It can become quite lively (especially Saturday nights)… so maybe you could try a quiet Sunday morning when all you see and meet are fishermen, sleepy cafe personnel and one of the many harbour cats?
