Over three million travelers and tourists annually enter Cyprus from Larnaca Airport, Port and the Marina looking forward to enjoy the beautiful beaches and the sunshine of the island. Larnaca being in the center of the country is the ideal base for exploring the rest of Cyprus. Its international airport lies a few kilometers from the center of the town and still the town is completely outside the cone of landing and departing aircraft.
The advantages of Larnaca as a tourist resort are too many. The town is large enough to give everything one may need but still is not overcrowded especially at its beautiful beaches which extend for 25 kilometers. Summer sports, sea activities and cruises are readily available. The shops are well stocked, and medical care is excellent.
Mackenzie Beach and finikoudes in Larnaca are two of the most popular tourist destinations in Cyprus, offering beautiful sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and amazing restaurants and bars situated right next to the ocean.
Diving is one of the best things to do in Cyprus and one of the best places to dive is the Zenobia wreck, in Larnaca, which is one of the best recreational wrecks in the world. Larnaca is an ideal diving destination for both beginners and experienced scuba divers and undersea seekers being the hometown to many unusual and surprising undersea treasures. The sea is calm and safe with no strong currents, the weather is mild with sunshine throughout the year, the water temperature is high and the waters are clean and clear.
Close to Larnaca Airport before Larnaca town is larnaca salt lake. In years gone by this was a productive business enterprise. Donkeys transported the salt from the lake where it was stored in summer in huge piles. In the winter, the lake fills with water and is visited by many birds including flamingos, which are a familiar sight for the Birdwatchers in the winter.
Hala Sultan Tekke is the fourth most important Muslim place of pilgrimage on the planet and is found here on the shore of Larnaca salt lake.
