The resort of Larnaca combines classic Cypriot culture with a contemporary edge that makes for a holiday destination that pleases every member of the family. The city’s size means there is an array of beautiful beaches to choose from, ranging from the peaceful sands of the west to the busier stretches elsewhere. There are plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs on offer too. You can also immerse yourself fully in culture and history, should you wish to.
If you plan to spend your days outdoors and your nights eating, drinking or dancing under the stars, then cheap hotels in Larnaca can provide all you need. At the other end of the scale, 5-star hotels in Larnaca will ensure your stay is as comfortable and luxurious as possible. All-inclusive hotels in Larnaca are deservedly popular with couples and families alike, who can relax and enjoy their stay all the more knowing that everything is taken care of.
It would be very easy to spend your whole stay in Cyprus on the beach or by the pool, but this region is very rich in history and has so much else to discover. Wander through the Turkish Quarter to browse locally produced handcrafted wares, or head to the Church of Agios Lazaros’s fascinating Byzantine Museum. Larnaca Fort dates from the 1800s and offers a tantalising glimpse into Cypriot history.
As you might expect, the freshest fish from the Mediterranean makes its way onto almost all of the menus in Larnaca, and seafood is definitely something of a local speciality. On the other hand, why not try some Greek-Cypriot meze sharing dishes, or opt for a mouthwatering kebab? You’ll soon find that these succulent sewers of spiced meat bear no resemblance whatsoever to the greasy, processed offerings sometimes found elsewhere.
Exploring the wider Larnaca region can throw up some surprises too. There’s the well-known resort of Ayia Napa, a firm favourite among young clubbers, while Nissi Beach is a mere mile yet a whole world away, offering families sweeping golden sands, a smart, cafe-lined promenade and a sizeable waterpark. A quarter of an hour’s drive will take you to Protaras, a popular spot with couples thanks to its intimate tavernas and breathtaking coastal vistas.
