Restrictions on arrivals have meant that some hotels, closed since March, have not reopened. Another reason is that many tourists who booked their holidays in the Kyrenia region for August and September, have cancelled.
Meanwhile, the preferred holiday locations are the Karpaz and Iskele.
While the holiday trade languishes in Kyrenia with only 8 percent occupancy, boutique hotels in the Karpaz region are 100 percent full.
The President of the Cyprus Turkish Hoteliers Association Dimağ Çağıner, said that it is gratifying that the public turns towards domestic tourism.
