See:Phinikoudes beachand promenade, Larnaca’s main attraction, named after the palm trees that stretch along the sea-front.
Visit the Salt lake, hot spot for thousands of migrating flamingos during Jan-Feb and a real treat for photographers and nature lovers together with the Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque, overlooking the lake and the old airport. The Mosque houses the tomb of Umm Haram, wife of Ouvadas Ibn who led the invasion on the island of Larnaca in 649 B.C.
Don’t miss Larnaca Fort, built in 1625 which houses a small archaeological museum, with items from the excavations at Ancient Kition, an archaeological site in the north west of the city with impressive shrines and temples.
Culture vultures will adore the Byzantine Ayios Lazaros Church, built in the 10th century with its magnificent icons that seem to shine and literally dazzle the eyes. If you love churches and monasteries, don’t miss a trip to Stavrovouni monastery, sitting majestically on an enormous hill just outside Larnaca and offering amazing 360 degree views over the east of the island. Built in the 4th Century by Saint Helena, women are sadly not allowed inside the monastery, but they can still take in the views.
Shop: The main tourist shopping streets in Larnaca are Ermou St and Zinonos Kiteos Street where visitors can choose from a wide range of souvenirs including traditional lace, unique copper jewellery such as that found at Tofari and Sons in the Mehmet Ali and Cyprus or Aphrodite's Delight.
Those with a sweet tooth should look out for delicious Cyprus honey which is great value for money, perfect spooned over strained Greek yoghurt to remind you of breakfast in Cyprus.
Find your way around by downloading a map of Larnaca and don’t miss the old Turkish Quarter of the city which bears hidden treasures like beautiful hand-made pottery – see it being made at Emira pottery – and be sure to spend a little time wandering the narrow streets. And for some fun, why not paint your own pottery at Splashocolor?
Eat: Visitors are spoilt for choice when eating out in Larnaca from well-known chains like TGI Fridays and McDonalds to traditional Cypriot tavernas. For real authentic Cypriot food, avoid the more expensive commercial establishments on the Phinikoudes and head for the back streets to sample a traditional Cypriot meze (lots of different dishes). If you’re not sure where to go, book a tour with Cyprus Taste Tours to sample hidden tavernas far from the tourist crowds.
For a unique atmosphere and Greek Cypriot ambience, head for the 1900 Art Café serving excellent cuisine in a renovated old building in the Plakota area of the city. If you want to cook your own steak visit Stone Grill Flavors and place your hunk of meat on a heated stone in the middle of the table. Or indulge in authentic Italian food at Casa Mia or Japanese sushi at Time-Out award winner Nippon.
Drink: The famous Cyprus cocktail, a refreshing Brandy Sour, originally made for the young Egyptian King Farouk in Platres village in the Troodos mountains and don’t forget to ask for the recipe. Order a cocktail at one of the bars on the Phinikoudes overlooking the beach or sample an ice cold Keo, the famous island beer with the yellow label.
Coffee lovers should not miss out on a Frappé, cold frothed coffee, invented in Cyprus, even though the Greeks wouldn’t admit it. Don’t forget of course, the most important drink – water! You will need lots of it, especially if you visit in the hottest months of July and August.
And if you’re a wine buff, while there aren’t any wineries in the Larnaca region, a 50 minute car journey will take you to the Troodos East Pitsilia region where you can follow Cyprus wine route 6 and sample the excellent wine made at the Kyperounta winery among others. Plus don’t miss a sample of the most famous Cyprus wine Commandaria.
Stay: Larnaca has accommodation to suit all budgets from 5 star luxury hotels like the Adams Beach and the Golden Bay Beach to affordable family apartments such as Eleonora Apartments or family resorts like the Faros Holiday Village. If you’re looking for an ultra cheap yet comfortable room, there’s even an Easy Hotel just 5 minutes walk from Phinikoudes beach front with prices starting from €15 per night.
Walk: To the end of Cape Greco, the wild rugged headland to the east of Larnaca city and see if you can spot the local legend, the Ayia Napa sea monster! Or follow one of the nature trails in the region such as the short Stavrovouni to Anglesides trail or the longer 12km Larnaca airport to Rizoeliam, part of the E4 long-distance path which can also be explored by bike.
Or do something totally different – ride a camel around the countryside near Mazotos village at the Mazotos Camel Park. Formerly used as transport on the island, particularly in Venetian times, this is a great day out for kids and adults (big kids) alike.
Listen: Look out for talented rock and blues bands like Zilla Project, or have fun at a traditional Greek music night where you can dance to bouzouki music with serviettes (rather than plates!) flying through the air. If you visit during August make sure you visit one of the local villages like Lefkara or Mazotos to experience a Cypriot Festival with dancing troupes in traditional costume and plenty of Greek music.
Avoid: The sun, especially between the hours of 11.00 and 15.00 in high summer. Do as the locals do and either stay cool in the shade of a beachside umbrella or take a siesta, to re-charge the batteries before a night out.
