The site is located about 2 miles from the village of Yenierenkoy which acts as the gateway to the Karpaz Peninsula. The site consisting of 30 donums of land (about 10 acres) lies adjacent to the main road through the Karpaz area leading up to Dipkarpaz and the golden sands beach some 30 minutes drive further on.

The site is above the road and has panoramic views up and down the coast with access to its own beach some 500 yards away. The site is bordered by agricultural land where no further planning permissions have been granted for further development.

The sea is immediately in front of the site to the north and the mountain form a backdrop to the south. The land slopes up to the rear of the site and is sheltered and secluded.

The Karpaz Peninsula and Peninsular Heights

The Region

It is not often that one comes across a part of the world where western commercialism and the tourist industry has not found a foothold but the Karpaz region of Northern Cyprus is one such location. In order to reach it one has to make the effort but the rewards are worth it.
The Karpaz peninsula is a nature reserve and protected area as it is home to a number of species of green sea turtle which come back to the same beaches year on year to breed. The best beaches in Cyprus are located on the Karpaz Peninsula, the best of these being the Golden Sands Beach on the southern side of the peninsula near the tip. But it is not just the sandy beaches that makes the Karpaz area so different from the rest of the island.
The area is sparcely populated and is therefore a haven for those seeking a quiet and traffic free environment. The area is made up of the foothills of the mountain range that spans from east to west along the northern coastline, the rolling dunes coming up from the sandy bays and fertile fields sandwiched between the hills and the sea.
The gateway to the Karpaz area is the village of Yenierenkoy. Between it and the second largest village of Dipkarpaz lies the Peninsular Heights development with access to a sandy beach some 500m away. The development overlooks the sea and has uninterrupted views up and down the coast. The location of the site acts as a springboard for those wishing to explore the area more fully.

Places of interest

Ayia Trias

Panayia Eleousa

Aphendrika

Ancient Christian settlement with shells of three churches clustered together leading to a necropolis of rock tombs. This is the furthest point of the road on the north side of the peninsular.

Apostolos Andreas Monastery

A place of pilgrimage for many Cypriots known as the 'Lourdes of Cyprus' where many come in their hundreds on Assumption Day (Aug 15) and St. Andrews Day (Nov 30) to seek cures for their ailments from the spring in the grotto below the church which is said to have special healing powers. The current buildings are from the 19th century.

Kastros

From the Apostolos Andreas Monastery it is only another 15 minutes drive to the 'land end' and the rocky outcrop of Kastros with its abandoned meteorological customs hut. It is only about the last 200m that you can see both sides of the island coming together to form the very tip of Cyprus.
There are a number of other ruined churches and monasteries most of which are accessible by car or a short walk. The area is home to a number of wild donkeys that wander around so care should be taken when driving through.
To the south of Yenierenkoy lies the fishing village of Bogaz with its small fishing harbour and restaurants. The village is becoming very popular as a stop off point before entering the Karpaz region. The village is served by the Exotic Hotel and Bogaz Hotel (currently being expanded). Bogaz is about 30 minutes drive from the site.
A new fast road is being constructed between Girne (Kyrenia) and the Karpaz region which will greatly reduce the time it takes to arrive in the Karpaz area from the northern part of the island. The quickest route is from the south via Farmagusta, Salamis and Bogaz where it takes about one hour to reach the site.
