The Larnaca region
It is at the beginning of Athens Avenue and it is decorated with the first colonial buildings the British Administration built in Cyprus in 1881. This was the first year the British occupied the island and Larnaka was the biggest port and urban center of the island, so the housing of British colonial administration had to get started from here.
Larnaka Salt Lake
The first site of immense interest encountered upon arrival at the Larnaka international airport is the Larnaka Salt Lake. Its past as a natural habitat of sea life is traced 3-5 million years and fossil life of that age can be found in the surrounding hills.
The most interesting thing about the Salt Lake today is the migration of more than 80 species of migratory birds in winter, mainly flamingos. It is considered to be one of the most important wetlands of Cyprus and it has been declared a Ramsar and a Natura 2000 site. The Nature Trail surrounding the Salt Lake is part of the European Walking Route E4. The area is actually a network of four salt lakes, covering a surface area of 2,2 sq km. The Larnaka Salt Lake offers a marvellous setting where one can enjoy the most romantic sunsets on the island!
Palm Trees Promenade
One of the most pleasant entertainment seafront areas of the whole of Cyprus is the palm trees promenade or Athens Avenue in Larnaka. This beautiful avenue along a sandy beach on the popular seafront of the city accommodates some of the best hotels, cafes, pubs, clubs and restaurants in town. Along this famous “Phinicoudes” sandy beach of Larnaka, which is busy and friendly day and night summer, winter, springtime and fall, activity is a non-stop procedure, as the beach fans and swimmers mingle with the tourists visiting the museums, the historic buildings and all of them together with the locals enjoy the drinks, food and entertainment of the establishments and the free of charge walks on the promenade.
The Zenobia, a Swedish roll-on-roll-off ferry, was fully loaded with 104 trailers and trucks when she sunk on her maiden voyage to Cyprus in June 1980, off Larnaka's fishing harbour. The wreck of The Zenobia is now lying on her port side at 42 meters, 1.5km from the shore. The sea bed in at a depth on 42m, and the top of the wreck is 16m below the water surface. The water visibility is up to 50m, with the temperature ranging from 16oC in the winter to 27oC in summer.
The Zenobia wreck has now become a protected artificial reef, with many species of fish making it their home, including Dusky and Striped Groupers, Sea Bass, Amberjacks, Barracuda, Parrotfish, a variety of Bream and Wrasse, to name but a few. In fact, the marine life in and around the wreck is unique, and the dive site is currently rated amongst the top ten wreck dive sites of the world. The Zenobia wreck dive is an absolute must, for all serious divers, visiting Cyprus.
If you are not a diver but wish to see the Zenobia wreck, you can pick up a glass-bottom boat from the Larnaka Marina.
