    A peaceful orthodox church supposedly housing the tomb of St. Lazzarus. Beautiful old church, very quite and though a museum in itself you are charged NOTHING to visit. Then there's the proper musuem just out side the church itself with a minimal fee. Beautiful calm surroundings with loads of souvenirs shops, restaurants and cafes which are open till late.
    Situated a few minutes away from the famous castle its an all rounder experience for those who loves history and calm.

    The beach is located near the airport (you can see the planes with landings), the sand is fine, the beach is big enough (the sunbed costs 2 €), and the entrance to the sea is smooth.
    Warm water without waves. It is the ideal place for families with small children or those who want a quiet holiday.
    In the immediate vicinity there are a multitude of restaurants, terraces, shops and even a (large) toilet where you can take a shower and change your beach clothes.

    It’s not only a sandy beach, but a popular meeting and walking place. The seafront area is full of palm trees, cafes, pubs, clubs and restaurants. In April we just walked on promenade and sat on benches, but some brave people swam in the cool water. We liked nice lamps and old palm trees, which were planted here in the early 1920’s.

    The lake is beautiful during the "winter", when there is water and it is full of flamingos.
    In summer, the lake is completely dry, and the white (salt) color amplifies your feeling of wonder.

    As an experienced advanced open water and speciality deep diver with nearly 300 logged dives I was looking forward to my 2 dives on the wreck of the MS Zenobia and it didn't disappoint. The water visibility was excellent and this massive wreck, 172m long, had plenty to see. We went down to the prop's at 40m and also did a swim through the canteen. Plenty of marine life including a nice moray eel. Plenty of Cypriot Dive Centres offer dives here, many of them operating from the Larnaca Marina based "Queen Zenobia". This was an excellent dive vessel with plenty of room, easy entry and exit and an excellent lunchtime BBQ.

    Amazing place to try something new and have some quality time of the day.
    We've been twice already and had such a great time.
    Definetly recommended place for activity!
    Mr. Michalis is one of the kindest person I met. From the first minute gives you a good feeling that you don't even realize how time passed.
    Thank you a lot!

    Near Larnaka Salt Lake, on the road to Kiti we visited this impressive mosque. We knew the interesting story about its origin and formation. Now it’s considered to be the 4th most important religious sites globally for Muslims. It’s simpler inside but we saw the tomb of Umm Haram, which maybe is a monumental monolitic tomb of the prehistoric period. It’s worth a visit, but it’s not easy to reach with public transport. We had to wear mask to enter the garden.

    We were walking there to taste the history of Larnaca. It was founded during the Byzantine era as the first fortification in the 12th century. Later it became a prison and nowadays it is a museum. From the top the view is amazing.

    You can have a nice walk to the sea port where you can book boat trip or just enjoy the walk. It is long walk in between 2 sea ports, almost 5000 steps. You can visit the castle on your way on the marina. Restaurants all over the walk with many varieties. It ia possible to rent a bike abmnd enjoy a sunny day...

    08.2020 Relaxed place to hang out,

    Shower is free

    For diving /snorkel this part of the beach is not interesting. There are no corals or similar sensational wildlife watching.

    The old Aqueduct was built in 1745 to provide Larnaca with water. It was the largest of three and is known in Greek as „Kamares” which means ’Arches”. It dominates the landscape on the Larnaca –Limassol road 3 kms from the town. It’s worth to visit and take some photos.

    cheap entry. Lots of interesting artefacts on show and loads of history on display. Upstairs was closed, which was a pity

    We had lunch organised for us at Christoudia Winery which was traditional Cypriot food at its best! The accompanying wines were delicious and the dessert wines were especially good.
    Highly recommended.

    The sand on this beach, and others in Larnaca, is similar in colour and texture to a poor concrete mix. That said this beach is very pleasing and safe. Lovely for swimming and sunbathing. Plenty of sun beds were available. The water was probably the least clear i’ve seen in any holiday destination. But all thing taken into account a very pleasing beach. Lvely ice cream shops nearby...

    This is a small jewel of museum, the kind of place that will define your memory of your visit to Cyprus. The exhibits are all available to be handled and of great interest in themselves. But the acme was a conversation with the owner, a semi-retired doctor who was full of anecdote, humour and avuncular charm. He had 2 sweet little Dachshunds and even treated to us tot a tot of the local liquor ("will keep you healthy all day"). Set us up for the day!
