What are the best places to stay in Larnaca?
Stroll Larnaca’s palm-lined promenade, stopping at one of the many seafront cafes and bars. Wander the historic Turkish quarter and browse quaint traditional shops, or shop designer labels in the city centre. Visit the majestic Salt Lake and beautiful historic monuments like the Church of Saint Lazarus and the Grand Mosque.
There’s far more to Cyprus’ party capital, Ayia Napa, than clubs and bars. It’s got 5-star hotels, the family-friendly Nissi Beach and WaterWorld aqua theme park. Follow nature trails or visit the tiny whitewashed Agoi Anargyroi church whose steps lead down to the sea. The fascinating Thalassa Ayia Napa Municipal Museum uncovers the mysteries of the deep.
Limassol has beautiful beaches and an attractive historical centre anchored around the medieval Limassol Castle and the Old Port. The latter now offers trendy cafes and restaurants, and its picturesque pier has stood since 1880. Spot superyachts in the swish new marina – already being dubbed 'the Monte Carlo of Cyprus'. North west of the city you can follow six wine routes visiting 20 wineries spread across 11 wine villages or ‘Krasochoria’. Explore the Prokymea Molos Sculpture Park, which features 20 large sculptures on the Molos seafront created by local and international artists.
Offering a host of hotels, Protaras is a bustling resort on the golden Famagusta coastline and boasts some of the finest beaches in Cyprus with fantastic water sports. Dining options cater to every palate, while bars on the main street throb with live music and entertainment. Alternatively, go snorkelling in the crystal-clear waters around idyllic Cape Greco or explore the peaceful coastal villages and secluded bays.
