Larnaca is the third largest city in Cyprus it’s boosts an important port as well as an international airport.
The best place to take walks is along the Foinikoudes, a sandy strip in the city centre backed by a palm-lined seaside promenade with magnificent views of the bay and the maritime yachts. Next to the boardwalk is the best beach in Larnaca – Mackenzie Beach.
The most interesting place of interest is the salt lake, located 5 km from the city. It is a complex network of four salt lakes, three of which are interconnected. Besides its picturesque beauty, the lake has over 85 species of water-birds. It is one of the important migratory passages through Cyprus. Among them are 2,000–12,000 flamingos, wild duck and other water fowl which find refuge here during the winter months.
On the shore of the lake is the Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque, which is considered one of the most important Muslim sanctuaries. One of the oldest monasteries in Cyprus is the Stavrovouni male monastery on the hill of the Cross. Unfortunately, the entry of tourists is prohibited. Other places of interest include the church of Saint Lazaros and Church of Angeloktisti.
