Larnaca Airport is situated less than 10 minutes’ drive from the city of Larnaca on the southern coast. To get there, exit the airport and follow signs for the B4 which will take you into town. Larnaca is the third largest city in Cyprus, located on the island’s southern coastline.
While the town itself makes an excellent base for exploring the whole island, it also has plenty to offer in itself. Take a walk through time by visiting St Lazarus Church and the Kamares Aqueduct, or enjoy a stroll along the main promenade with its palm trees, cafes and bars. Dive into the old Turkish quarter or go shopping in the old market with its craft shops. Besides its wide selection of tourist attractions, it also has a great choice of pristine beaches nearby, so make sure you make a stop at palm tree-lined gems such as Mackenzie Beach and Finikoudes Beach.
For those who love nature and tranquility, a short drive west from the centre brings you to Larnaca Salt Lake where you can look out for pink flamingos and visit the Hala Sultan Tekke mosque.
With its fusion of stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, ancient history, vibrant cities and mouthwatering cuisine, Larnaca and its surrounding areas have long been a go-to destination for many people, and when it comes to deciding what to see and do, there really is something for everyone.
If you are travelling further afield, it’s likely you’ll need to use the A3, which is the main access road to and from the airport. For anyone seeking the bright lights of Ayia Napa and Protaras, stay on the northeast bound A3 until you see signs for your destination (in around 45-50 minutes).
Heading west to Limassol? You’ll need to exit the A3 onto the A5 and then take the A1. You’ll reach this popular resort in less than 45 minutes.
Journey inland on quiet country roads to trundle through gently rolling landscape and sleepy villages such as Lefkara and Kornos. Here you’ll come across deep-rooted traditions such as lace making, embroidery and pottery. Continue west off the beaten track to take in Mount Olympus - the island’s highest peak - and the lush interiors of Paphos Forest, or keep heading north to check out the island’s capital, Nicosia.
