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.

There’s no shortage of stunning, Blue Flag beaches in the Larnaca area. Stretch out in the sunshine on the soft white sand of Nissi Beach. Get active on the water with the wide range of water sports at Fig Tree Bay, from jet skiing to doughnut rides. There are also secret coves to be discovered nearby if you want a bit of peace and quiet. Or hop on a boat on an organized trip to explore the rich marine life of the area with a dive on the nearby Zenobia wreck. 

The historic centre of Larnaca is home to many treasures for history buffs. There are spectacular Byzantine basilicas, and a medieval cathedral if you’re looking for some quiet contemplation. Varosha in Famagusta is an eerie ghost town that was deserted after the Turkish invasion. Once a bustling tourist resort, it’s now an open-air museum where you may spot a nesting turtle at certain times of the year. Nearby Othello’s Castle is also worth a visit. This stunning 14th century fortress is named after the Shakespearean play, which is set in a harbor in Cyprus.

If you’re on your Larnaca holidays with the kids, head up the coast to nearby Ayia Napa for the best choice of things to keep them happily occupied all day long. Enjoy the thrills of water slides or relax in the wave pools at Water World, Cyprus’ largest water park. Or enjoy the rides at Parko Paliatso amusement park, which offers something for all the family. There’s also plenty of wildlife to be spotted here too, including a stunning pink haze of migrating flamingoes, which gather at the start of each year on the large salt lake to the north of the town.
