About Larnaca

Larnaca is the oldest inhabited city in Cyprus. Originally known as Kitium, it has been in existence for more than 6000 years. Testaments to its wealth of history are the many archaeological sites, ancient buildings and museums to be found in Cyprus’ third largest city.

The Archaeological Museum is located close to the remains of Kitium, Larnaca's oldest ruins. Here you can see the remains of buildings that stood on Cypriot soil many thousands of years ago as well as view a large collection of ancient pottery, glassware, terracotta figurines and folk art. Located at Odos, Kalogreon in Larnaca, it is open Monday to Wednesday and Fridays from 09:00 to 14:30 and on Thursdays from 09:00 to 17:00.

The Pierides Foundation Museum was opened by Dimitrios Pierides in 1839 in an attempt to protect and preserve Cypriot artefacts. Its exhibits range from the medieval to the Byzantine, as well as some more recent Greek sculptures.

The Municipal Museum of Natural History is a real favourite, particularly with the youngsters. A beautiful building, it is located in Larnaca’s Municipal Gardens and displays such things as stuffed animals and insects, fossils and minerals, all of which hail from Aphrodite’s Island. The museum is located at Leoforos Grigoriou Afxentiou in Larnaca, and is open: June to September.

Whilst the Cypriots of Larnaca are deeply and justifiably proud of their past, they have a definite eye to the present and the future. Larnaca is moving with the times and as a result, is more popular than ever, attracting around 3 million visitors a year through its international airport, its freight port and its marina. Many of these people will of course be en-route to some of the other popular Cypriot destinations but a good number will travel here to stay in Larnaca itself.

A great place to holiday and to live, it is also the ideal second home or retirement location, with many expatriates choosing to live here for its fine climate and ease of connection via air and sea. One of the real beauties of Larnaca is that it is large enough to cater for everything a visitor may need, yet it is by no means overcrowded. With about 16 miles of beautiful beach to offer, you are never short of somewhere to sun bathe. Nearly all the beaches are run by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation of Public Beaches. Most of them have bars and restaurants, and offer full facilities for swimmers and sunbathers such as changing rooms and sun loungers that can be hired by the hour.

The most popular beaches in Larnaca are McKenzie and Dhekelia beaches. McKenzie is situated just outside of the city, a short drive from Larnaca airport. Famed for its beautiful white sand and clean, clear waters, there are lots of watersports on offer here including scuba diving and there is an excellent selection of restaurants which are well-known amongst the locals for their fresh seafood meze and Cypriot cuisine.

Dhekelia Beach seems to go on for miles and is the setting for many of Larnaca’s four and five-star resorts. A busy beach, it is the ideal place to catch a bit of sun whilst socialising and people watching. There are lots of water sports on offer as well as other beach activities such as volleyball and the beach is lined with a good number of trendy bars and quality restaurants.

Many of these beachside restaurants, the tavernas, cafeterias, bars, and  other eateries across Larnaca offer  varied menus of fresh fish, meat dishes and vegetables each with their peculiar specialities but one constant is known as the “Cypriot Meze”.

The Cypriot Meze is very similar to Spanish Tapas in that it can consist of anything up to 30 small plates or dishes served with dips, vegetables and a wide range of fish or meat. It is served in groups of 4 to 5 dishes at a time and the “meal” can last as long as you want it to. Although many tavernas will have their own take on the “meze”, they all follow a similar pattern; Olives, breads, taramasalata, hummus and yoghurt are followed by vegetables like eggplant and courgette. Afterwards small meat or fish dishes are served as the prelude to a whole fish or large grill that arrives later.

Youngsters are kept smiling with a huge choice of summer sports, sea activities and cruises  and if shopping is your thing, then there is plenty of choice here too. The city also boasts a leisure complex with cinema screens and a bowling alley. For the young adults the night life in Larnaca is happening and quite varied. The “Old Quarter” is the place to go, at night this small pedestrianised area, set back from the sea front, teems with people frequenting the many bars and clubs.
