How to Get to Northern Cyprus by Ferry?

Updated: 5 days ago

Even though Cyprus is an island, a plane is not the only way to reach it.

There is a ferry service operating between Turkey and Northern Cyprus. This mode of travel is not as convenient as a plane but is perfect for adventure enthusiasts, car owners, or those with a lot of luggage.

The ferries depart from the town of Tasucu in Turkey and arrive at the port of Kyrenia. There is a slow overnight ferry that transports vehicles and a fast daytime ferry.

Ferry for Vehicles

The ferry can accommodate 470 passengers and 46 trucks or 260 cars. This is the means of transportation to bring your car from Turkey to Northern Cyprus. It is also possible to book a cabin, which we recommend as this ferry operates throughout the night, and staying in the car salon is not allowed according to the rules.

High-Speed Ferry

The 38-meter catamaran can accommodate 384 passengers and covers the distance from Tasucu to Kyrenia in just three hours. These trips operate during the day but not every day.

Routes may vary depending on the season, so it is better to check for details about the routes and ticket prices on the website.
