Honored in Greek legend as the birthplace of Aphrodite, Cyprus has a special charm that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. The region is just as well known for its stunning beaches as it is for the fascinating history of its archaeological sites, making it perfect for nature lovers and history buffs alike.
Visitors can explore ancient castles, marvel at the beauty of waterfalls, or enjoy a day at one of the zoos or aquariums.
There's no doubt that Cyprus is an ideal vacation destination no matter what the time of year – the only question is what you'll do when you get there.
One of the most popular things to do in Larnaca is to visit and spend time on the beach. The beautiful city of Larnaca offers a wide variety of beaches at different locations within the city, each with its own unique identity.
Beaches like the Mackenzie beach, Lenios beach and Meneou beach are the perfect destination for you to enjoy a little Cyprus sunshine as you wander around observing the locals.
The city authorities also provide lifeguard and bathroom services as you spend time with your family engaging in popular beach activities.
Cyprus might be one of the Mediterranean’s oldest cities, but when it comes to the Larnaca nightlife, it has enough to keep even the most dedicated party-goers happy! By day, you can bask on one of the beautiful, sun-bleached beaches, visit fascinating museums and explore ancient ruins. By night, Larnaca undergoes a stunning transformation, as the promenade lights flicker into life and the sounds of party-heads gathering at the bars, clubs and pubs starts to fill the air.
While the Larnaca nightlife might not be as hectic or intense as it is in nearby Ayia Napa, it does mean smaller crowds and a far easier journey back to your hotel!
The Cyprus Castle is a Medieval Ottoman fortress, located in the south of Finikoudes promenade. The castle was founded by Europeans in the 14th century, when Lusignans were running the country, and later rebuilt by Turks, who used it to protect the city harbor.
After Britain had come to power in 1878 and up to 1948 the castle was used as a police office and a jail, where death penalties were enforced. When the police office opened on the other side of the street, the castle finally became a historical museum, where archaeological finds, arms and household items discovered during the archaeological excavations of Kition, are exhibited.
The Larnaka District Archeological Museum is located at Kalogairon square, almost in the center of the city. The museum features archaeological finds and historical objects, shown in chronological order and illustrating the development of the region.
Cyprus is famous all over the world for its traditional cuisine: in particular, meat and fish meals and meze, brilliant selections of small dishes, offered anywhere on the island, including Larnaca. If you are looking where to eat in Larnaca, you may find the information below helpful.
The Tasties Cafe is located in Lefkara, a famous village not far from Larnaca where unique silver handicrafts and embroidery are produced. It serves Greek, Mediterranean and even African cuisine, home-made wine and an apple pie with ice-cream, as well as sandwiches and hamburgers for those who do not want to experiment. Live piano music is performed here in the evenings.
The Kalamaki Bar Greek restaurant (Leoforos Athinon 52) is a place where you can get a large portion of coal-roasted meal with a good view on the sea. Here visitors can try Souvlaki (two pork and two chicken brochettes, two kebabs, fried potatoes, sliced lemon and sauce), gyros and other Greek dishes and desserts, one of which, Mahalebi, is often served as a compliment from the Chef.
