From beach fun to discovering the rich local culture, Larnaca holidays have it all. Situated on the south-eastern edge of Cyprus, the coastline around the city boasts some of the country’s best beaches and diving sites, perfect if you’re a bit of a water baby! There are plenty of family-friendly attractions to keep little ones happy, too. And there are lots of archaeological sites to explore if you love a bit of history. When it comes to food, you’ll find a cosmopolitan choice of restaurants, cafés and bars catering to every taste, from sampling the delicious local wines and Cypriot cuisine, to enjoying fish and chips or pizza.
From exploring the antique shops of the old town to hitting the water on a banana boat, there’s something for everyone on your Larnaca holiday. The soft golden sands and shallow waters of Nissi Beach are a short bus ride away, putting you within easy reach of one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. The thrilling complex of slides and pools at Water World, Cyprus’ largest water park, are at nearby Ayia Napa, and are a must-visit for families. Fancy something more laid back? Simply stay and enjoy a leisurely lunch along Larnaca’s bustling palm-lined seafront promenade. In the evening enjoy your meal like a local at a quiet taverna, or head to the bright lights of nearby party-capital Ayia Napa to dance the night away.
The hot and sunny summer months of June, July and August are popular with beach lovers.
