Larnaca isn’t as popular as Ayia Napa or Paphos with the tourists visiting Cyprus, but it certainly has its perks. Here are five reasons why you shouldn’t miss this charming city while exploring this beautiful island country.
Larnaca is home to Cyprus’ busiest airports and chances are you’ll find yourself here even if it’s not your final destination – so why not stick around for a day or two before exploring the rest of the island?
Like every coastal city in Cyprus, Larnaca is home to many beautiful beaches, offering a wide range of activities, from sunbathing to water sports. Finikoudes Beach is the most popular of them all, but Mackenzie Beach and Kastella Beach are also worth checking out.
Despite being one of Cyprus’ largest cities, Larnaca has a much more relaxing vibe than its other tourist hubs, and it’s a great place to go for leisurely strolls, explore local markets, and amazing food scenes.
Larnaca will also win you over with its rich history and culture, and it’s home to several spots where you can explore them, from the Church of Saint Lazarus to the Larnaka Medieval Fort.
Beaches aren’t the only natural wonder you’ll get to enjoy in Larnaca, especially if you decide to check out the Larnaca Salt Lake, which attracts migratory flamingos to its shores during colder seasons.
