This one can't be missed. It is on your left as soon as you drive out from the airport on the way to Larnaca.

My wife and I walked the trail which leads around the east side of the lake up to the aqueduct. While not particularly scenic, it is a pleasant break from the city and an easy trail to walk. I recommend bringing binoculars to watch the pink flamingos.

There are mixed reviews of the lake and I think they are mainly due to wrong expectations. I arrived at Larnaka airport and decided to walk from the airport to the lake. It took maybe 30 minutes to walk by the road and then there was the lake. At that point of the year it is full of water and... More

One may spot flamingoes during winter. These birds added color to the lake. Beautiful scenery however it lacks signage and it has to be properly taken care of by the local council. A walk from makenzi bus stop was such a long one. Transporting was such a hassle so be prepared for a loooooooong wait before a bus stops to... More

Summer Vs Winter this place is one of the best around but better take a car or a byke. I have seen many tourists that walk there but dont forget the Cyprus sun. Is a lovely place but take with you water, and drinks since nothing near it...

We spent a whole day walking around this impressive lake and it was the best day from our week in Larnaca. I am happy that I came here in January because we had amazing change to see flamingoes. The nature around the lake was very interesting and different too. If you love long walkings you must walk around this lake... More

Went down here on the bus from Larnaca. not clear how to walk around and there is a busy road nearby. We did see Flamingoes but only at a distance so you need binoculars really. Not very peaceful right by the road but I am sure if you get off the main drag it is very pleasant. You need to... More
