Mini Travel Guide to Larnaca
Ayia Napa, one of the region’s best-known resorts is famous for its nightlife and clubbing scene. It also has some of the island’s most beautiful – albeit crowded – beaches. If its nightlife doesn’t appeal, consider Protaras or Pernera. These resorts offer beaches, watersports and a range of accommodation, but are quieter than their boisterous neighbour. Larnaca itself offers a more authentic slice of Cyprus than some of the nearby beach resorts. The city is full of historical buildings, churches and several fascinating museums. Not far from the Church of Saint Lazarus where the body of Lazarus was once entombed, is the old market area where locals sell fresh produce and make traditional crafts. To get a feel for local culture, take a wander through the old Turkish quarter. With its mix of chain food outlets, more traditional restaurants, bars and cafes, the seaside promenade (Phinikoudes) is one of the key areas for tourists. Not far from here is the Pierides Archaeological Foundation Museum which houses an impressive collection of finds covering 9000 years of the island’s history. Other museums in Larnaca include the Museum of Natural History and the Agios Lazaros Byzantine Museum.
