Our top things to do in Larnaca and in the area

Larnaca is a beautiful city with many local restaurants, good cocktails bars, and nice sites to visit.
I think it’s worth visiting the city for two-three days.

We stayed in a charming apartment hotel called Elenora hotel apartments in the heart of the city, close to everything. The rooms are big, there is a living room, a kitchen, and a balcony. There have free parking spaces and great service. We loved this hotel and the location, which was 5 minutes walking to the promenade and all the restaurants and bars are nearby.

I recommend to request for a rear apartment and not the one that faces the main street because there is a bar with loud music until 01:00am

Things to do in Larnaca

I really recommend to rent a car to explore the city and its surroundings. Even though they drive in the opposite direction there, you get used to it pretty fast.

If you don’t want to rent a car you can travel by bus, and there is also a tourist bus that stops in some of the sites that I will mention.s

Salty Lake

a big, salty lake that the main attraction there is to see the flamingoes (in the autumn)

Hala sultan tekke

A Muslim mosque on the west side of the Salty Lake.
It is also known as the “holy mother”- because they believe that the remains of the step-mother of Muhammad the prophet are buried there.

I think that one of the special things in this place is the cats. When you arrive a lot of cats that come to you. It sounds weird, but there are many friendly cats there that are looking for attention. If you are a cat lover you will enjoy it. If you are recoiled from cats you should be aware of it.

Opening hours 08:30-17:00

Kamares Aqueduct

A lovely place that has a trail all the way to the Salty Lake. We walked there about half an hour, but it’s a 4km tail. So you can walk all the way or just a part of it.

The promenade

 A nice promenade. You can wander around there, do some jogging, and also there are many restaurants along it. There is also a castle and a museum there that you can visit.

Day trips outside Larnaca

Cape Greco

A stunning reserve that I really recommend to go for at least three people and even more. You can do easy hiking in nice trails there. There are many trails that you can choose from.

There is a natural bridge there. There is also an area for picnics with a lot of picnic tables and you can just come and enjoy the nature and sit on a bench near the sea. The reserve is located in Ayia Napa.
On the way back from the reserve we were very hungry. We decided to stop in a restaurant in Ayia Napa.

We chose a modern restaurant (many restaurants were closed because it wasn’t the season). But it turned out to be a really good place. We ordered a Greek salad and two types of pasta (one carbonara and one with seafood). The pastas were excellent. I liked the way they were served.

Pano lefkara

A picturesque village known for its lace industry. You will find many lace shops there. In the village there are local restaurants and nice coffee shops. We found a great wine store that has many wines and liquors.
For lunch we ate in Adamos restaurant.

One of the best local restaurants that we ate in. We ordered a dish of fresh mushrooms with lemon and we ate the tastiest moussaka in Cyprus there. For dessert we ordered the carrot cake.

This restaurant is full all the time. I recommend you to reserve a table in advance. We had to wait 15 minutes for a table and it was in the low season.
