Destinations / Larnaca
Larnaca is a busy port town on the south coast of Cyprus and is home to the international airport. Holidays in Larnaca benefit from the combination of old and new with the city's commercial offering and newer tourist hotels and infrastructure blending to make Larnaca a popular holiday hub. Holidays in Larnaca revolve around the seaside position of the city and the pretty promenade, lined with swaying plam trees, is the focal point for strolling, rambling, coffee sipping and people watching.
Go slightly inland and Larnaca is uncovered as a Cypriot treasure to unfold the charms of a bygone era. The lovely 9th century Church of St. Lazarus holds the tomb of the saint who was raised from the dead. There is even an old Turkish quarter, called Skala, where little whitewashed cottages rescued from dereliction are now quaintly remodelled to house an up and coming arts centre with ceramic workshops and local artisan products.
A holiday in Larnaca is a Cypriot delight. The beach at Finikoudes (flanked by the broad coastal walkway) and Mc Kenzie are flooded with busy bars, cafes and restaurants and form the relaxing holiday scene for locals and visitors alike.
