The Cave restaurant

and the walls are stone. An ideal venue for private parties and themed events.
The village is just 30 miles (40km) away from Famagusta City and 40 miles (50km)
from the International Airport of Ercan. The picturesque fishing harbour at Bogaz
is just 20km away and can be reached in less than 20 minutes. The roads are of an
excellent standard with no heavy traffic at any time of the year. Surrounded by Olive
groves and orchards it is in the most serene of settings, close by to the village
itself is a lovely sea side promenade with a golden sandy beach and a small fishing
Although it is in a rural position, close by there are two supermarkets and a petrol
station, and there is a choice of excellent restaurants both along the main road
that by passes the village as well as at Dipkarpaz to the north and Bafra and Bogaz
to the south.
At the start of the Karpaz peninsula, Buyukkonuk benefits from fertile flatlands
and crops grown there include wheat, barley, and several types of vegetables. It
is also rich in carob and olive trees, as well as mulberry, almonds and figs. You
can pick your own olives, get them pressed at the local olive mill and take home
your own oil. The ancient Karpaz settlement of Buyukkonuk has been selected as the
first eco-village in North Cyprus to help counteract the growth of mass tourism.
The scheme aims to preserve the village's local culture in an environmentally sensitive
way, and promote the area as a destination for special activity holidays. It is hoped
that the initiative will encourage community life in the village to continue, while
raising awareness among villagers about the importance for caring for the countryside.
The Karpaz Area
We believe it is best discribe the Karpaz area as two regions from Bogaz to Yenierenkoy
and Yenierenkoy to the tip. Between Bogaz and Yenierenkoy the terrain is less rugged
and the area is populated with a sprinkling of villages, and Farming communities,
the main villages being Mehmetcik, Barfa and Kumyali. Mehmetcik sits high on a hillside
and has the most spectacular views of the picturesque valley below with the sea in
the distance. The village is famous for its grape growing and the production of an
assortment of traditional sweets made from grape juice. Bafra until recently was
a small sleepy farming community, now it is a hive of activity with 2 large 5 star
hotels built on the magnificent sandy beach, with more hotels planned it is set to
become the Las Vagas of Northern Cyprus.
