“Wonderful landscape, especially during the sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

It was near to the Flamingo Beach Hotel so we visited several times.The landscape is beautiful especially during the sunset when the salt gets a shade of pink and the sky seems a peinture.

“Nice for Twitchers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Salt Lakes at Larnaca are adjacent the Airport and easily accessible from the roadside. They are visited by hundreds of Flamingos each year during the Winter months and often into late spring. As well as these frequent visitors there are numerous indiginous species for the ardent twitcher to focus his binoculars.
The church of Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque is also situated at the edge of the largest of the lakes and is a well visited heritage site.

“yep it's a salt lake..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

If you must go, I advise going near sunset. The hills will serve as a great back drop, and the sun setting behind the hills really is a beautiful site.

Almost daily for six weeks I drove past these lakes. My moped was quite slow, so I was able to get the only long and clear views that I needed. The "lakes" are quite large, they seemed kind of dirty, and yep a lot of salt. Salt chunks, slabs of salt, sprinkles of salt.. but really not exciting.
I didn't understand the hype as I drove by and occasionally saw people taking pictures.

“Pretty awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Great to see the sun blazing down on this, however winter sees both a lake of water and the flamingoes that settle there. Don't know which view is best so my advice is to see both
