Does anyone have a website for the wooden huts/cabins you can hire on Karpas? I came across something once and thought I saved it to favourites but cant find it! Thank you.

We laughed the first time we ever saw these huts as they were up on stilts and could just imagine trying to climb up the ladder in a drunken state to go to bed. Ashamed to say we haven't been to the Karpas for a couple of years now (keep promising to go but never get around to it) and it looks like the huts are a little better than they were a few years back.

I am sure it would be good fun just for one night - no longer though as I would miss the home comforts!!!! It's more for the kids really and hubby would enjoy it (I think)!!!!!!.

Hi BHW

Nothing works on sandflies for me. I've tried it all. Was really ill about 3 years ago when they first started all the building works on the island but haven't been bothered by them since so I don't know if you become immune after the first bad dose.

Spent the millenium at the Karpaz watching the dawn rise on the new millenium from the most eastern point of Europe. Many nationalties were there

and after kahvalti (breakfast) outside some of our Brit. girls swam in the turquoise sea - one German man joined for short time. For me it is wonderful.

Just came back from Karpas first week of May, stayed in log cabins on beach. No they are home made shacks with so much ventilation, we were freezing. Could be great when the temperature is hot. The ones on golden beach are sheds also, but the view is the most beautiful I have ever seen.



Its an adventure.

Not all beaches in NC are public - some you have to pay for but those

owned by Belediyise (municipality) like Agadi, are free. Most in Karpaz are free

to my knowledge

These huts looked real fun, not the once on stilts but further on at Burhans so decided to stay. It was so hot, sandflies, mosquitoes and spiders got inside the nets as there were large holes in them, and then at around 11pm they turn the generator off and you are in darkness unless you pay for a lamp. Spent most of the night outside until the bats decided to bomb us, so slept on the beach which was much better. For 70 ytl per hut could of stayed in a hotel but the experience will never be forgotten.

I spent 3 nights in the Amazon Rainforest in Peru and it sounds just like that, and I spent a damn sight more than 70 ytl a night, maybe I should try it and relive the horror-are there tarantulas in NC? spent one night trying to find the one that managed to regotiate all the traps I had put down, couldnt find it but did find tree frog!

Hunting for a bloody big tarantula is not easy in the pitch black

These huts are pretty uncomfortable, unbearable in summer unless you are 20 years old and drunk. Try the arch houses at Dipkarpaz, they may take dogs, it is run by the council reasonable restaurant next door.The tourist board will have the info.The other council hotel up near the monastery is pretty dire, looks like something from the eastern block, run by miserable council workers who get upset when you ask them to interrupt their dinner to serve you.

Hasans Turtle Beach is the next one along from Burhans going towards the monastry. 60ytl per night for two people including breakfast. Huts are basic but have own toilet, shower and sink and clean bedding. Turtle egg laying season is May to July and the babies hatch from end of July through to end of September. Well worth a visit, we took my parents who are in their seventies and they loved it!!

Also, try 'Oasis' - it is at the Roman harbour right on the beach on the north coast (straight up from Dikarpas) There is a small taverna who will do a wonderful bbq lunch overlooking the sea, there are also 5 rooms which are look fine and comfortable, right on the beach

Both Burhans and Hasans places are great places to stay. Admittedly it isnt 5 star accomodation but is relatively clean and comfortable and is a great experience staying right in the Karpas, on the beach.



Whenever I have gone I have had a great time and unless you are really precious I strongly recommend a stay. The earliest I have stayed was late March. The weather was comfortable and we had the place to ourselves though that was 5 years ago! Last time i went was summertime and met some really cool people and had a blast.



In my opinion Burhans just edges Hasans.

I agree we stayed at Burhans, fantastic! The beach is spectacular! The only thing i would change is the time of year. We went in August and my god were we hot at night!

hi notsoboredhousewife,Take a look at http://www.balciplaza.com nice little appartments by the sea side, 60 euro with breakfast for two, excellent restaurant on the site, heart shaped beach with help yourself bar,

owner Hasan is so helpful and knowledgeable about the area, home grown salad and veg, fish straight from the sea, the best T-bone i've had here so far

I'll be there with the children again this year, it is so child friendly with being an enclosed property, cannot wait

Hi All,



Karpas is really special place and worth the trip. The landscape is stunning and swimming is great. Blue Sea Hotel is good for a few overnights beside its own little beach and boat harbour. Stop in Nico's in Dipkarpaz for Coffee on the way. I agree with other posts that Burhans is best beach bar overlooking lovely stretch of beach. Make the trip down to Astpolos Andreas also.

Thanks Tasgirl and Noeler for the information. This thread is old but nice to see some people are interested in posting more information on that area. Some may find it very helpful. We are looking forward to going to Burhan's this year with the family

on the north side of the karpaz is the "oasis", at ayios philon

there is a well-preserved 5th century mosaic close by

it is only ten minutes down from dirp...

on a headland this eco resort is an amazing place tho' not five star

and the cafe overlooks a roman harbour



while three hundred meters west is a vast deserted turtle beach,

ten klicks due east on a dead-end coast road is the myserious aphendrika

mozzies, sandflies, crap food, filthy dirty, 1/2 size double bed.

never again!

i'm not the sort of girl who does slumming it, not even for that wonderfull beach!

We only intend on going for one night as I like my home comforts too - we are doing it more for the kids as they love camping. Will go prepared with mozzie sprays etc!

All of that area used to be great- totally unspoiled and natural. Unfortunatly the Brits have done it again! "Ooh isn't it lovely, So cheap..." etc etc. Hence the prices are now fixed and way over what they should be. Expect to pay 80TL for a dirty beach hut (2 person) and no insect protection. Not as "natural" as it was but still worth a visit in my opinion.
