Kornokipos (Greek: Κορνόκηπος, Turkish: Görneç) is a village in the Famagusta District in Cyprus, located on the south eastern side of the Kyrenia Mountains. The village name is thought to mean "Beautiful Garden" in ancient Greek. It is since the Ottoman times in Cyprus an exclusively Turkish Cypriot village and remains so today. In 1960, it had a population of 292 and in 1973 a population of 315. It currently has a population of around 500.
The village was held temporarily by (Greek) Cypriot soldiers in 1974 after the Turkish army's invasion on the 20th of July 1974.
