North Cyprus – A dream location for outdoor enthusiasts

With kilometers of off road tracks and trials, cycling, walking, running is readily available for all levels. Also if thats too energetic how about Golf at the championaship 18 hole Korineum golf course or even a game of tennis surrounded by local fir trees to keep the area cool and shady.

Next weekend  the Crusader castles ultra event, which starts in the mountain range near to the Thalassa Beach Resort in Bafra takes place. High in the mountains at the stunning crusader castle, Kantara, around 50 extreme athletes will start their run of 80km at 5am in the morning.

Views of the exciting coastline development in Bafra and the sensational Thalassa Beach Resort will be appreciated as the sun rises over to the east of the Bafra coast. With a wide selection of apartments, some with jacuzzi’s and others with private swimming pools, this is perhaps the ideal place for the atheletes to prepare for this event with a fully equiped gym and mountain bikes available for hire.

7 hours later the more tame 30km runners will set off from the beautiful mountain picnic setting on the mountain range just along from Esentepes’ Turtle Bay Village and Karpasia by the sea.

The five finger (Besparmark) mountain range predominates this costline where we find the established Turtle Bay Village, comprising of a low rise apartments of 2 and 3 bedroom. With 7 swimming pools, sports courts, crazy golf and indoor and outdoor gyms, this buzzing development provides everything for the outdoor type.

A new release of sea front apartments is just being finalised offering extreme luxury with direct views of the beautiful mediterainean. On clear nights the sunset sinking low into the sea highlights the mountains accross the water in Turkey appearing only a stones trow away.

Winding around the beautiful Turtle Bay Village landscaped gardens is a specially prepared tarmac track for running, cycling, rollerblanding or even stolling.
