The Bay of Kaplica
The bay of Kaplica can be seen from the castle or the village of Kantara. Here one can gaze on the bays of Kaplica, which is famous for the beaches and developed coastline along with the number of restaurants present there for the visitors to enjoy their time there. In order to reach there from the Kantara region, one have to move back to the four-junction in the Kantara village. The main village where most of the inhabitants live is about a kilometer away from the main coastline of the village. This coastline is a fairly long stretch of sand and muddy land along with a number of rocks present there. This coastline contains a number of drink stalls that present the customers with a number of refreshing drinks in order to keep them cool during the summer seasons. This is also one of the specialties of the region.
One can also find an anchorage in the east along with a small fish fry stall that serves the freshest fried fishes to the tourists. Moving to the west about three kilometers in total one can also find another sandy patch there. This bay is, however, not suitable for having a swim neither it is worth visiting while being on the trip to Kyrenia. This region is overly explained for its beauty and the fresh stall, which in reality nothing like that. This bay is much more like the other bays present in Northern Cyprus.
Moving further to the west about twelve kilometers in total, one can reach the Panayia church which can be found on the boundary between the two famous cities of Famagusta and Kyrenia. This is also one of the Byzantine time churches available in the region, reflecting the architecture of the region during the Byzantine Era and the hardships seen by these buildings since then by the number of attacks done on the buildings by the invaders of the times. This church is located about 400 meters from the main road towards the inland region of the village. This building after being heavily damaged by the attacks from the invaders is now totally bricked in order to preserve the building from further damage and preserving the historical importance of the building.
