Airport travel guide

Pick up your rental car Northern Nicosia Airport! Then head to the center, park outside the Old City, and explore on foot—make sure to check out the Selimiye Mosque, Kyrenia Gate, and the Samanbahçe Houses. To find out more about the island’s history, visit the Lapidary Archeological Museum, and to learn about Sufi dervishes, head to the Mevlevi Tekke Museum.

The Büyük Hamam, or Great Turkish Bath, is the perfect place to unwind. It’s been open for more than four centuries and is exactly what its name suggests. Fully relaxed, drive your rental back to Selimiye Mosque for another amazing experience—whirling dervish shows take place in Bedestan, the historical building next door, six days a week.

Northern Cyprus might be small, but there’s so much to see. Why not get a longer term car rental deal and explore its villages and beaches and more of its history and culture? You can even pick up your rental car at North Nicosia Airport and drop it off at another location. Start planning your adventure today!

Northern Nicosia Airport is also known as Ercan Airport, Lefkosa Airport, Tymvou Airport, and Ercan Uluslararası Havalimanı.

Location

Northern Nicosia Airport is about 20 km (12.4 mi) southeast of Northern Nicosia or Lefkosa, and about 40 km (24.8 mi) from Kyrenia or Girne. Ercan Havaalanı Yolu, Gazimağusa-Lefkoşa Anayolu, Dr. Fazıl Küçük Bulvarı, and Şehit Mustafa Ahmet Ruso Caddesi are the main streets connecting the airport to the city. Northern Cyprus is a de facto independent state, albeit only recognized by Turkey. The Republic of Cyprus - the southern, Greek-speaking part of the island - considers Northern Cyprus to be a part of its territory. Despite the political dispute, the border between Northern Cyprus and the Republic of Cyprus is open for visitors to cross. However, car rental companies in Northern Cyprus do not permit crossing the border with a rental car. Most travelers who wish to visit Northern Cyprus first and the Republic of Cyprus later, pick up and later drop off a rental car in Northern Cyprus, then pick up a new rental car after crossing the border. There are many car rental companies in the Greek-speaking part of Nicosia as well as in the rest of the Republic of Cyprus.

During my journey to Lefkosa, Northern Cyprus, I was able to see some incredible sights and have remarkable experiences. One of the highlights was going to the Kyrenia Mountains. The panoramic magnificence of the mountains was spectacular, and I liked wandering along the paths while admiring the scenery. The refreshing mountain air and tranquil atmosphere provided for a very revitalizing experience. Kantara Castle was another natural landmark that left an indelible impression on me. The castle, perched on a hill, provides panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and the Mediterranean Sea. Exploring the castle's historic remains and learning about its rich history was an incredible experience. When it comes to food, Lefkosa offers a broad menu. Lokmaci Restaurant, which specializes in traditional Cypriot food, was a standout among the eateries I visited. The flavors and scents of delicacies such as kebabs, mezes, and stuffed vine leaves were just delicious. The genuine hospitality of the personnel enhanced the whole meal experience. Furthermore, seeing the historic Old Town of Lefkosa (Nicosia) was an unforgettable experience. Walking through the narrow alleyways, I came across delightful cafes, boutique boutiques, and historical landmarks. The Selimiye Mosque, with its breathtaking architecture, is a must-see; a beautifully renovated caravanserai that now contains shops and art galleries, it is regarded as one of the island's finest structures. The Ottomans erected it in 1572, the year after seizing Cyprus from the Venetians.
