Marvelous beaches, a rich culture and a legendary nightlife.
Best known for its lively coastal promenade lined with palm trees, Larnaca embodies the easygoing beach life, mixed with its sizzling nightlife and a glimpse of thousands of years of history and civilization.
Take a stroll down the wide pavement of Finikoudes at sunset, enjoy a coffee or evening beer at the many cafes and bars that line up this seaside boulevard, relish a traditional meal with a view, or head to the beach to catch some sun and dip into the blue waters of Cyprus – this is where many locals and visitors alike come to unwind. The scene here is filled with great energy and is absolutely radiant during the summer holiday period. Divers can also visit the wreck of the Zenobia, a ferry that, on its maiden voyage in 1980, sunk only a few hundred meters from the harbor and is still fully laden with trucks and their cargo.
For those looking to explore Larnaka’s history and tradition, take a few steps inland to the beautiful thousand-year-old Byzantine church of Agios Lazaros, which stands in the center of Larnaka, or head to the Stavrovouni Monastery. You can also visit archeological sites like Hoirokoitia and visit the Hala Sultan Tekke mosque, and Larnaka Salt Lake – a watery paradise for migrating birds like pink flamingos. Visitors can also explore the countryside around Larnaka, and visit little villages like Lefkara, famous for its embroidered goods, like lace and silverware.
Cyprus is relatively small and hot spot destinations like Paphos, Agia Napa, Limassol, or the country’s business center – Nicosia (Lefkosia), are all easily accessible from Larnaka.
So fly with Air Mediterranean and experience your Cyprus adventure.
