Holidays to Larnaca
Holidays in Larnaca involve sun soaked days on the beach, underwater adventures, intriguing temples and tombs, and simple, yet stunning Mediterranean cuisine. Although there is much to see and do in this exciting town on the south coast of Cyprus, Larnaca still manages to maintain an easy going atmosphere, making it an ideal place to spend a holiday by the sea.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Larnaca
Larnaca has been drawing in travellers for centuries with its beautiful white sand beaches that spill into the Mediterranean Sea. Although you could spend all day bronzing yourself on the sands and swimming in the clear waters, many people come here for the excellent scuba diving opportunities. Just off the coast of Larnaca, you can find the Zenobia shipwreck, a massive Swedish ferry that sank in 1980 with all of its cargo still inside.
History lovers on a holiday to Larnaca will have plenty to explore here. The ruins of Ancient Kition are must-see site. This was a city established by the Greeks in the 13th century, and later taken over by the Phoenicians. Today, the ruins reveal sacred shrines and temples, and walls made of large stones. The Hala Sultan Tekke mosque is another interesting site, as many believe that the foster mother of Mohammed, Umm Hamam, is buried here.
Larnaca is also all about getting outside and enjoying the sea breezes. There is a fabulous walking trail that stretches east from Larnaca along the coast to Oroklini. Here you can take in views of the sea and the coast, stopping at beaches strewn with seashells along your way. During the winter months, the Larnaca Salt Lake fills up with colourful flamingos who live here until the warmer weather causes the water in the lake to dry up. For great views and tasty food, join the crowds at the seafood restaurants on the beach, where you can sample fresh grilled fish, squid, and octopus.
