After the breakfast at Riverside Holiday Villa, We forward towards our next destination - North Cyprus upper-rightmost tip point (Cape Zafer). It was not so easy as we thought. Just have the northern Cyprus map with you. Keep in mind the reference of sea-side and mountains, you wouldn't be diverted. We follow the path from our hotel to Kyrenia town-center. From the main round about in Kyrenia, first follow the places Karakum, Catalkoy, Vrysi, Karaagac, Esentepe, Bahceli, Kuku, Tatlisu, Mersinlik, Kaplica alongwith the sea. Don't take any right turn to any village, if your target is NC tip. In the way, you have option to trek Buffavento Castle (take turn from Vrysi) and Kantara Castle (take turn from Kaplica) as per the time avail.


In the way, near Tatlisu turn, we found a special woodish sandy mountain. It was really different one, I have ever seen. All are pushing our car just for the sake of a snap. In the way, we had a lot of breaks due to variety of beautiful backgrounds and foregrounds.

After Kaplica, it's time to leave the sea-side and move forward to Buyukkonuk, Zeybelkoy, Cayirova. Till this place its approx 2:30 pm by the watch. We estimated (6-7 hrs) our forward-backward time to NC tip to current place(Cayirova). As it was winter time, so we postponded the NC tip target for our next NC trip because it starts dark after 4 pm only. I will update it later.
Just FYI, follow Mehmetcik, Gelincik, Yesilkoy, Dipkarpaz, Apostolos Andreas Monastry to reach NC Tip (Cape Zafer).

Be sure to have the spare Tyre-tube for your personal vehicle. As roads are not good at various places. Due to sharp curves over the zig-zag roads, don't speed.
In the midway you will find various turtle nesting area and golden beaches. So Golden Beaches near Bafra was our next destination.

Wanna to have a look to other places in North Cyprus.
