Hotels in Larnaca

Perfect for beachside basking or afternoon drinks on the promenade, Larnaca is a popular Cyprus destination. Larnaca hotels offer access to the city's famous beaches, historical attractions, restaurants, cafés and bars.

History

Now the third-largest city in Cyprus, Larnaca was once the site of the city-kingdom of Kition, established in the 13th century BC. This means that there's plenty of history to sift through in Larnaca, with Achaeans, Phoenicians, Assyrians and Persians all having, at one point, colonised the area. The Pierides Archaeological Foundation, established in 1839 by Demetrios Pierides, is one of the best places to take in this rich heritage. One of the most famous exhibits in the foundation is a ceramic howling man, dating from around 5,500BC.

Larnaca Fort, built during the Lusignan era and remodelled by the Ottomans in 1605, is another must-see. The fort overlooks the water, positioned between Finikoudes promenade and the old Turkish quarter. Travel around 1km north-west of the city centre and you'll find the site of Ancient Kition, including the remains of Cyclopean walls and five 13th-century temples.

Religion

The city is also home to a number of impressive religious monuments. Agios Lazaros is an ancient church dating from the 9th century, dedicated to Lazarus of Bethany. The church is a fantastic example of Byzantium architecture, with equally striking 17th-century restorations. Head inside and you'll find examples of intricate Catholic woodcarving and gold-plated icons. Set in the centre of the Turkish quarter, the Grand Mosque is the spiritual heart of Larnaca's Muslim community. The mosque dates from the 16th century, although it was largely restored during the 19th century.

Beaches

Most travellers come to Larnaca to relax on the sand, with the city boasting some of the country's best beaches. There are many separate beaches and coves here along the coast, including Phinikoudes, Alaminos, Castella and Mckenzie. Whether you're looking to lounge around with a good book or dive into the opal blue waters, the beaches in Larnaca are an ideal place to spend your holiday.

The area is also perfect for watersports, from scuba diving to sailing. The Zenobia Ferry Wreck is located close to coast, and there are regular diving trips for visitors looking to explore the sea life living there. If you want to stay dry, fishing is a great alternative and the locals are normally happy to offer advice on the best spots to make a good catch.
