Esentepe is a charming village located along the east coast of Kyrenia. The area has recently become very appealing for foreigners to buy property. Residential areas with villas and apartments have spread both in the village, which is situated on a hill, and down by the sea. Esentepe has become a popular place to live and has not had any negative effects on the idyllic village life, instead it has increased Esentepes status, and today the emphasis is very much on the area.
What is it that attracts so many to buy property there? In comparison to the more established residential area west of Kyrenia, Esentepe is a relatively new and unspoilt area. From being a small village, the area has in recent years expanded along the coast. Here you are literally in the middle of nature. Esentepe is located on Cyprus’ northern coast, where the sea meets the mountains and where the sunsets are intensely red.
Esentepe is calm, with beautiful beaches and the refreshing Mediterranean Sea breeze. The Korineum golf club offers golf, tennis, a beach club and a unique dining experience, which are just steps away. In the mountains there are plenty of walking trails and historic sites to visit, and if that was not enough, there will soon be a new luxury casino hotel not far away.
Just behind the grocery store Tempo the municipality is working on a lovely sandy beach that will soon be completed with a restaurant and other facilities.
Many people who move to Esentepe appreciate the proximity to Kyrenia which is only 20 minutes away and it is also not far away from the national park area of Karpaz.
