The Region of North Cyprus Esentepe
Latest Pictures of Esentepe Golf Region
Esentepe is a beautiful village located east of Kyrenia (Girne). It has great mountain and sea views due to the fact that mountains come very close to the costline in Esentepe creating dramatic views from the terraces and balconies of lovely North Cyprus Esentepe Villas and Esentepe Apartments.
The village itself is one of the few villages left that has not been renovated, so if you like the idea of traditional Cypriot homes, Esentepe is the place to be. This village goes back many of years to ancient times and it is there you will find the old Christian church which is now used for the local mosque. If this is your first time to Northern Cyprus you may think that it is a little 'strange' as the Turkish Cypriots are so friendly and welcoming, really it is like the old England around seventy five years ago. There are many people living in Esentepe and all of the amenities are there from a doctor's surgery, police station and schools - primary and secondary.
Esentepe also has its own local football team with a great stadium, where visitors are always welcome. If you like to go for family outings, walks and picnics then take a walk up into the mountains where the beautiful pine forests are located, this village suits everybody, young and old. Esentepe also has some of the best beaches in Northern Cyprus near by, for example the famous Alagadi Turtle Beach (see below) is just a five minute drive away, this beach has golden sands that stretch over several miles and during the months of June and July, you can watch the turtles nest and then see the babies hatch from their eggs and escape into the beautiful Mediterranean sea.

The History of Esentepe Village
There are two villages in the island which has this same name. The smaller one of the two is located in Limassol, the KIVIDES village and the other one which is the larger one is located in KYRENIA. The one located in Kyrenia raises a great amount of wild apricots and by this reason the Cypriots called this village AYOS AMVROSIOS and pronounced it as ay (grosi) and this has continued till today. This town has been built on a field which has a lovely view.
The huge graveyards which were mentioned as “Makaria” before Christianity are located next to the town. Before Christianity, the “makaria” people built their houses where they buried their families and today the ESENTEPE village has been established in this way.
In the Makaria period it is known that the first settlers of this place were the Greeks from the Arkadi region who returned from the war of Troy. In the west of the village, immigrants from the TESALIN region established a neighborhood which was first called “IPATI” but after was changed as “APATI”. In the Ptolemy era this neighborhood did not have its own kingdom and was governed by the Salamis kingship. The “Makaria” name came until the Byzantium period and was eliminated when the Arabian war started in 806-807. With the defeat of the Arabian pirates, today’s villages AYOS AMVROSIOS (ESENTEPE), KALLOGRIA (BAHÇELI), HARÇA (KARAAGAC) were established on the ruins which were plundered by the Arabians.
Main Locations in Esentepe Village
The Esentepe Ataturk Park’s construction was completed and the park opened to public use in 1982-83; and the grassing and renovation project for the park was successfully completed in the year 2004. In May 2005, the enlargement of the Ataturk portrait sculpture added an exceptional value to the park. The park is situated at the center of Esentepe village and it is possible to see people visiting this park at every hour of the day.
The Esentepe wedding park was constructed in 1990, but because of economical reasons the park is yet to be fully completed. Along with other planned projects to be carried out, it is certain that the wedding park will present an aesthetical and environmental beauty, expected to be one of the finest places in the village.
When entering Esentepe through the mountain road, the police station is located approximately 300 meters ahead on the left hand side of the road. Considering the setting, the police station is distant from the centre of the village. This police station was established in 1974 along with the settlement of refugees from Southern Cyprus and it has one police vehicle and four cabins (houses for employees). Although crime rate is unbelievably low in Kyrenia Esentepe, one would imagine that the number of office holders will increase as more and more people make Esentepe their retirement or holiday home destinations in North Cyprus.
The Esentepe Health Center situated at the centre of the village, was established in 1979.
Esentepe Public Beach
When leading from the village’s coastal road towards the East, after passing the Civilian Defense Organization Resting facility for approximately 400-500 meters, the Esentepe Public Beach is situated on the left hand side of the road. Esentepe Public Beach has two different coasts and an excellent outdoor café. This nostalgic building adds charm and character to a very natural and unspoilt environment. It seems as if it just about stands! The beach is very clean and there is no fee payable.
Alagadi Public Beach
Situated in the borders of Esentepe, Alagadi is one of the cleanest and longest stretches of sandy beaches on the island. On driving from Kyrenia towards Esentepe, at the end of a 16km drive, taking a left hand turn on the road, Alagadi is situated 600 meters towards the coast. During the summer season, because the green turtles (caretta-caretta) have chosen this coast in order to lay their eggs, vehicle entrance to the beach is prohibited at most late afternoons and sunsets. Students from different universities of the world voluntarily arrive to North Cyprus every year and stay for a full month, in order to help these green turtles lay their eggs peacefully; to prevent any light or fire from being started at the sand; to prevent the eggs of these green turtles to be effected by anything else; and most importantly, to help facilitate the turtles hatching from the eggs to reach the shore quicker and safer. Close by, there are services such as a restaurant, showers, wc, and entrance to the beach is free of charge.
Caretta Caretta Turtles of North Cyprus
In the whole of the Mediterranean coast, yearly 300-400 female green turtles lay approximately 200 carreta eggs. It is a known fact that these sea turtles do not visit all coasts but certain ones in order to lay their eggs. They reproduce during June-October and at every reproduction period they lay approximately 100 eggs into big holes dig themselves. Alagadi beach, which is in the borders of Esentepe, is one of the shores these turtles have chosen to arrive to. After being laid, in 2 months the eggs begin to hatch and at night the baby turtles begin to come out from under the sand and try to reach the sea in 10-15 minutes.
Any sound, light or human activity will startle these turtles and mis-direct them to wrong places. There are very few places left in the world today for these sea turtles to reproduce. Northern Cyprus is one of these few places. 10% of caretta caretta turtles and 25% of green turtles lay their eggs on the shores of North Cyprus.
