The Larnaca region
One of the most attractive parts of Larnaca though, has to be its palm-lined seafront walkway which is a favourite place for both locals and visitors. Commonly known as "Phinikoudes", which means Palm Trees in Greek, it's a great place to have a lovely walk, especially in the warmer months. You can either go in the morning for a brisk walk, followed by a scrumptious breakfast at one of the many surrounding cafes or restaurants, or you can go for a romantic late afternoon stroll, chased by a refreshing cold drink.
For something a little different, head out to the Kalavasos Dam, which is not only a very beautiful and peaceful place, it also allows you to take in some wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. As you drive through the village you'll be able to see the old abandoned railway and train, a reminder of the copper mines which used to dot Cyprus - in fact, "Cyprus" actually means "Copper" - a reference to ancient times when it was one of the main copper-producing countries in the Eastern Mediterranean. In fact, it's even said that Cyprus used to supply Ancient Egypt with copper for their pharaohs' jewels and armour.
Surrounding the promenade are the Marina and the Fort. While able to berth over four hundred yachts, the marina is not really accessible to anyone other than the owners and crew of the yachts, but the Fort, at the opposite end of the walkway most certainly is. It was built in the 1600's by the Ottomans and once the British took over, was used as a prison; it's now used much better as a venue for theatrical and musical events.
And as one of the oldest inhabited places in Cyprus, Larnaca, or Kition, is it used to be known, offers some great tributes and references to its ancient glories as one of the most settled city-kingdoms in ancient times. One of the world's great philosophers, Zenon, was even born in Kition. But it's not just about the past; Larnaca is also very much in the present and as one of the more less intense places in Cyprus, quietly gets on with its own business.
The local Greek taverna Vlachos is a short walk (you saw this as you came in off the main road) is very good and reasonably priced. Another taverna Lyssia again is very good and a little further on from where you turned off.
Both these do take away. An excellent beach bar/restaurant is GALU which is near the traffic lights at
the Henipa hotel as you came in off the motorway. This is an upmarket bar is mainly for adults
Another very smart beach bar AMMOS. This is on Mackenzie beach which is near the airport. Very good with fantastic sushi. Again a bit upmarket with loud trendy music. Indian is the Massala (very very good Indian food although a little pricey). For fish you have to travel to ZEPHYROS on the coast road just after Larnaca town or to POTAMOS which is about a half hour drive on the motorway toward Aghia Napa. Take the exit off for LIOPETRI and follow signs to POTAMOS.
