Essentials in Larnaca
Ayia Napa: While Larnaca has a city beach, it's not the best in the area. Many travellers staying in Larnaca spend most of their time in Ayia Napa which has a string of beaches that goes on for at least 25km. Beach hopping is totally the thing to do.
Church of St. Lazarus: In the older part of the city there is a 9th century Orthodox church that is definitely worth seeing. History has it that remains of Lazarus, who was raised from the dead by Jesus, are buried underneath the church.
Salt Lake: What is special about this lake? In the winter, you can see flocks of pink flamingos here. It's the second largest in the country and from March to November is little more than a crust of white salt. The best way to reach the lake is with a car hire from Larnaca.
