The bare northwestern tip of Northern Cyprus is known as the Koruçam Burnu (Cape Kormakitis) and, apart from being yet another ‘land’s end’ in the same sense as Cape Greco and Cape Arnaoutis in the South, or Zafer Burnu (Cape Apostolos Andreas) in the east, it is also home to one of Cyprus’ least-known religious communities. A trip to the cape makes for a pleasant excursion from Lapta. There is at least one decent beach on the way with a popular grill and fish restaurant.
Or you can take a picnic and enjoy your solitude at the cape itself. A decent road now runs almost all the way to the cape. It is best tackled as a loop starting from the northern end of the Kyrenia-Morfou road at the junction just after the village of Karşıyaka (Vasileia). Look for the sign to Sadrazamköy (Livera). Shortly after the turn-off is the neat little Peninsula).
