Information

Cape Kormacit is the name of the northwestern corner of the island. It is known to be the best place to watch the sunset. The first feature film of North Cyprus (Gün Batarken, 2010) was mainly filmed here, with backdrops of the sunset over the Mediterranean. The narrow trail follows the edge of the sandstone sea-cliffs. This area is also good for watching the passerine migrant birds. At the tip, there is a small island, a lighthouse, and remains of an old rock quarry. At the tip of the Cape Kormacit, the trail follows the western coastline through very rare Mediterranean thyme habitat. We will also have a chance to see the abandoned customs house on the rocks. After visiting a deserted sandy beach, we will meander through partially arable lands back to starting point.
