Close to the airport, the Salt Lake in Larnaca is one of the biggest salt lakes i have ever seen. Full of flamingos in the winter, I was so lucky to see for the first time a black flamingo.

Wanted to see this as quite unusual and enjoyed the views and the wildlife. Also the peaceful and important mosque on the lakeside. Tranquil.

The views are amazing, this year was amongst the rare occasions when there was still some water left in the summer, and the reflections make it even prettier. Look out for the very few stranded birds too!

We visited in July when it is quite dry in some areas. No birds unfortunately but still an impressive sight. Easy to find and lots of places to park up. Good to get a picture with the mosque in the background.
