South Cyprus to North Cyprus to Turkey

Hi everyone
I am about to travel to Cyprus and then Turkey, but I have some border bureaucracy doubts.
my plan is to land in Paphos airport, travel from there to North Cyprus crossing the border by land, and from there get a ferry to Marsin. I have a EU passport
the question is: is this feasible?
I am pretty confident I can cross from South to North by land, but I am not sure that, once I am into the North, I can actually leave to Turkey (I am wondering whether in this case I won't have any exit stamp from (South) Cyprus. Moreover, I think I can enter Turkey by sea at Marsin, but I am not 100% sure about it

what do you think?
thanks
and

I did this about 10 years ago. They tell you it's not possible. But we got a ferry from Kyrenia to Alanya, no questions asked!

Ask on the TA forum, they have up to date info. A lot has changed in the last 10 years with travel between the Republic & the Turkish Occupied Territories.

Flew into Pafos, got various buses through Nicosia to Kyrenia. Ferry out. No passport stamp entering at Pafos. Showed passport crossing in Nicosia but no stamp. No stamp leaving at Kyrenia. Turkish visa obtained beforehand to enter at Alanya. We have UK passports and Cyprus is part of the EU. However, Brexit might have messed this up.

U.K. passport holders do have their passports stamped on entry/exit to the Republic whereas they didnít before.
U.K. passport holders donít need a visa for Turkey but US do. Things change in 10 years. Worth asking others with up to date experience.
