Larnaca's Salt Lake

Larnaca's salt lake is four different lakes that have connected and are home to dozens of species of waterfowl during the migration season - including thousands of flamingos that enjoy the many shrimps in the lake in the winter. In the past, salt was harvested from the lake for export, but with the increase in labor prices in Cyprus, it is no longer financially profitable.


Legend has it that Saint Lazarus, the first bishop of Larkana, asked an old woman for food and drink, and when she refused, he turned her vineyards into a salt lake.


Around the lake, there are several viewpoints that allow looking at the lake from above, and you can also walk near the water - just be careful because sometimes the sand is a bit muddy, and the concentration of salt in the sand near the water is a bit slippery.


We took a walk on a hiking trail near the lake shore - note that you should bring a hat and water, as the trail is not shaded.


We walked along the eastern bank of the lake, from the northern observation point to an observation point in the center of the eastern bank. It was beautiful.
