Yesilirmak is North Cyprus’ most western community (not counting Erenköy exclave).
The small village descends gently into the lush valley at the foot of the Troodos mountains. A dried riverbed leads down to a small rocky beach. Here are a few restaurants, a pier with sun deck and ladder down to the water. There is a hotel in the village, Vouni King Hotel, which also has a cosy restaurant on the beach. The restaurant is known among other things for Cyprus’s largest grapevine, and the entire roof on the outdoor terrace is covered in vines which provide nice shade from the sun.
Yesilirmak village is also famous for its strawberry farms where you can pick your own strawberries. Read previous article here.
For those tired of the street life and pace around Kyrenia, Yesilirmak is a great place to visit to get away for a moment of contemplation. The village is surrounded by a timeless feel and when you visit it is a bit like moving to another time and place.
