Larnaka salt lake like all salt lakes solidifies int he summer heat giving an experience so nice as if looking through a crystal floor. In winter it all melts down to a crystal water surface. Getting there is very easy and there are signs everywhere. One can easily stop by car to take a few pictures.

During the winter months, the lake is the haunt of more than 80 species of migratory birds and an ideal site for bird watching. The lake is particularly noted for its flamingos which spend most of the winter there. They usually arrive in October. The Nature Trail surrounding the area is part of the European Walking Route E4.

We visited the salt lake via the nature walk from the Kamares Aqueduct. The lake is big so if you want to get the best of this you should take binoculars and/or a camera with long telephoto lens! We just enjoyed the walk and the views.

Larnaca Salt lake is situated close to Larnaca Airport and Mackenzy beach. Flamingoes usually visit the lake in winter months. Don´t miss the sunset by the lake, its probably the best in Cyprus!

Great spot for Flamingos and sunsets 🌅. But take care as the flamingos are not there all year round.

The environment is very idyllic, filling one with inner happiness and serenity. The whole scene is very conducive to achieving inner peace. Furthermore, for the keen photographer, the... More

Al the pictures you see about the lake show a lot of flamingos in the lake.In order to enjoy this view you have to travel during the migration season. So good luck. At this time we saw maybe a few couples at a distance that only the driver could have known that they are flamingos. On the other side maybe... More

Well worth a visit to the salt lake..when we went there was crystals of salt in place of much of the water but some great photo opportunities. Well worth a visit if you are in the Larnaca area.

Visited as part of the Love Buses tour of attractions in the Larnaca area. Rainy day and this was given by the guide as the reason for the complete absence of flamingos. The interconnected lakes are quite large but the presence of the airport and the Larnaca skyline tend to detract from the 'back to nature' feel. Little sign of... More
