Visited this attraction of the last morning of our holiday, as it is literally across the road from the airport. Easy to find - signposted off the main road to Larnaka. There was a small carpark with seats & toilets. During the winter months the lake is home to migrating birds including flamingos, which were our main reason for visiting.... More

In winter the lakes are spectacular, lots of different kinds of birds. Mostly white pink Flamingos. spectacular ! You can not stop looking at them. Fun walking around in the wild area between the city and the airport. Finally there is a pleasant surprise: Local entrepreneur, cat lover, probably with the support of the municipality, set up a feeding and... More

A unique place to visit in summer, as the lake is completely dried out. Would love to see it in winter as well.

We visited the salt lake in mid February primarily to get a glimpse of the flamingos that eat and rest here during the European winter months. We were not disappointed, there were hundreds of flamingos in the lake and so we enjoyed the walk along the shore line and on the nature path. Note that the path leads up from... More

The water evaporates in summer leaving a vast plane of salt. In winter it's beautiful and large numbers of migrating flamingos. Right on the shore is the Hala Sultan Tekke the burial place of Mohammed's aunt. Nearby is a picnic site.

I was over on a holiday and my friends live here..... I am terrified of cats (prob not the best country to visit considering) however there is a dormant building close to salt lakes and you pull up to what would of been the buildings car park and you may spot 3-7cats if no one is around. Take some food,... More

Close to the airport so even if you have a few hours, it worth to have a look. (but only at winter time) There are flamingos and other birds on the lake. There is a huge park, which is ideal for families. Ideal day out.

This is a very beautiful site, especially in late winter when the flamingos are there. The nature path that leads to Makenzy beach is 4,5 kilometre
