One of the most notable landmarks in Larnaca is the Church of Ayios Lazaros, which dates back as far back as the 9th century. According to the history of the Greek Orthodox Church, it was built on the site of the tomb of Lazarus himself. Lazarus of Bethany is the subject of one of Jesus' most famous miracles: he was raised from the dead after four days. Lazarus was then appointed Bishop of Kittim (now Larnaca) and lived on Cyprus until his death. His tomb was rediscovered in 890, and the Church of Ayios Lazaros was built on its site in commemoration. The building you see today has been added to many times over the centuries. During the last renovation in the 1970s, remains of Lazarus' body were found under the altar.
A stunning sight all year around, this network of four lakes is best visited between December and March, when up to 12,000 flamingos transform it into a riot of pink as they feast on the lakes’ bountiful shrimp. These colourful birds are just one of the 80-plus species to call the lake at least a temporary home. For that reason, Larnaca Salt Lake is a protected wetland area under the Ramsar and Barcelona conventions. The lakes lie west of the city itself, on the road that heads to the airport.
Kition is the name of the ancient city founded by the Phoenicians. Most of the remnants of that settlement lie buried out of reach beneath modern day Larnaca, but excavations have discovered some interesting artefacts. Work started by a Swedish team in the early 20th century has uncovered a shrine to Astarte, the Phoenician goddess of fertility, as well as four other temples.
When driving to Larnaca from the airport, it is impossible to miss the imposing structure of Hala Sultan Tekke, a giant mosque on the site of a very important Muslim shrine. Sitting on the shore of Larnaca Salt Lake, modern-day Muslims believe it to be the place where Umm Haram – the wet nurse of the prophet Muhammad – died. This complex was completed in the early 19th century, and cotains a mosque, a shrine, a mausoleum and a cemetery. Entrance is by way of a small donation.

Just like the famous Irish ocean liner, the MS Zenobia sank on its maiden voyage, just off the coast of Larnaca. With no icebergs to hit in the Mediterranean, this Swedish-built ferry's problems are attributed to faulty on-board machinery. When the vessel sank in June 1980, it took 104 lorries of cargo with it. Since then, the site has become one of the world's finest scuba diving destinations.
The MS Zenobia is 178m long and lies on its side, with the closest part to the surface at a depth of 18 metres and the seabed at 42 metres, making it a great location for divers of different levels. Divers can even sit in the cabs of the lorries that never made it to their intended destination in Syria.
Check out the Camel Park EP Mazotos for a relaxing afternoon with a twist. Located about 15 minutes away in the nearby village of Mazotos, you can take a tour around the grounds on one of the park's camels. Visitors will also enjoy the park’s ostriches, ponies and deer. An on-site restaurant and a pool are great if you want to catch some sun and really make a day of it.
Phinikoudes translates to “little palm trees”, but a visit to Larnaca's main beach will reveal the name to be a little out-of-date. Planted in the 1920s, the little palms in question have grown into massive, towering trees, and the beach is now lined with cafés, restaurants, bars, and shops. The beach itself is one of the cleanest in Cyprus, and has a wide range of water sports on offer. The gentle slope of the seabed makes it very safe for children to swim.
Situated on the Akamas headland to the northwest of Cyprus is the place believed to have helped Aphrodite – the Greek goddess of love and beauty – keep looking her best. She could make a man fall in love with her with just one look, and bathing in this small spring-supplied pool – now known as the Baths of Aphrodite – may have been her secret.
