Saint Lazarus Church

Reviewed By Panayiwtis I

Located in the heart of Larnaca.
A magnificent church with a great historical value.
I got married in this church and it was a great experience. Many tourists and locals are visiting the place on an everyday basis.
Opposite the church you can find many small coffee shops to sit and enjoy the warm weather of Cyprus.

Zenobia Wreck

Reviewed By Niamh M - London, United Kingdom

Dived the Zenobia Wreck with Cyprus Diving Adventures who were fab! The Zenobia was our first wreck dive and it will definitely not be our last. Visibility is amazing (about 25-30m) and the wreck is really quite breathtaking! Zenobia is an absolute must if you’re a diver!!

Reviewed By jod87 - Colchester, United Kingdom

Such a pleasant experience... We arrived and asked if we could have a go at trying some pottery and the guy dropped what he was doing and got us started straight away. He helped us to not create a complete disaster. We got to purchase the pots too which needed to be collected a week later. The cost was a lovely surprise too as i was willing to pay more than expected. We finished with tea and homemade breads. Thankyou for a great experience.

You can walk from the Marina to here and it is a nice doable walk. It's an area full of bars and restaurants with plenty of choice available. It is interesting you can sit and watch planes very closely!

Finikoudes Beach

Reviewed By Vonkhan - Athens, Greece

We were here in February, and even now the place was quite busy with visitors. The walk is quite pleasant and as you walk along the beach, you really feel like you are on vacation. The blue shades of the sea greet you on the one side and the other is filled with cafes and restaurants that you can stop by.

Hala Sultan Tekke

Reviewed By Pritesh M - Leamington Spa, United Kingdom

Very picturesque building in a picturesque environment. However, as a tourist attraction there is very limited information for anyone wanting to know about the site. It is clean and the looked after, but just watch out for the cats, especially in the car park... there are loads.

Larnaka Salt Lake

Reviewed By Reslysten54 - Vienna, Virginia

You can walk around the entire lake, but should be well prepared with water, good shoes, sunscreen and hat. There are no toilets along the trail.
We started from a point close to the UN complex near the airport. Buses stop nearby. The trail entrance is near the shore and clearly marked. The first 4 km are well maintained with a clearly laid out trail and distance markers. There was very little shade in the middle of the day. You end up at the aquaduct. That part of the trail is mostly near the urban fringe.
From the aquaduct a sign points to the mosque known as Halal Sultan Tekke. That is another 4km walk on dirt roads surrounded by agricultural fields. There is no shade nor signage. We did not walk up to the mosque but it makes for nice pictures.
From the mosque there is a new, elevated and well prepared trail for about a km. No signage, but you can see and hear the airport. Then you have to walk a couple of km along a very busy road until you reach the sea shoreline. The remaining couple of km are pleasantly aligned with the sea. You will also pass by several cafes. Then you arrive at Larnaca castle and are back in town.
The entire walk took us about 3.5 hours, including stops to admire flamingos in the far distance, have an ice cream at the entry to the airport road, etc.

Larnaka Medieval Castle

Reviewed By Pritesh M - Leamington Spa, United Kingdom

My family (wife and 2 young daughters) visited on the day before our return back to the UK. The pricing is confusing as it suggests €2.50 / person. However this is the cost for adults and kids are free. So a good surprise. The site is small but is kept very well. Could do with some more info around the site for the different elements in the castle, but the views are really good. Definitely a recommended place, but could do with a friendlier welcome.
Also, there is a mini museum in the castle with lots of info, however the kids got bored at this point as they wanted to be in the sun... and not have to read!

Larnaka Marina

Reviewed By Off their P - Manchester

This marina has a lot going for it and is a lovely place to walk around. There is something very relaxing about seeing the wonderful boats bobbing up and down on the waves and it made the perfect place for an evening stroll.
You can get things to eat and drink as well should you need it but we just enjoy getting the exercise by walking from our hotel down there and then around it.
