Larnaca Area holidays

What do you get when you mix Blue Flag beaches, year-round sunshine and neon-lit nightlife? The Larnaca Area! Every resort along this part of Cyprus' sun-baked south-east coast is a little bit different. There's legendary Ayia Napa – a lively playground for partygoers – plus chilled-out Nissi Bay’s aquamarine waters and pretty Protaras, with its swoon-worthy white-sand shores. If it's a big town feel you're after, with lots of shops and bars, set your sights on Limassol. No matter which of these Cypriot gems you pick, you'll find a wide choice of water sports, brilliant beaches and meze restaurants.

Resorts for all sorts

The east coast of Cyprus is best known for buzzy Ayia Napa. But there’s plenty here for families and couples too, from brilliant beaches to archaeological sites and unspoiled countryside. Foodies will be in heaven thanks to delicious kebabs and traditional mezes made up of a selection of light bites…

A bevy of beaches

The beaches along this stretch of the coast are gold-sand winners, many of them boasting Blue Flag status. The seas are warm, clear and calm, making them super-safe for swimming. Lots of the beaches are lined with restaurants, so you won’t have to travel far to fill rumbling tums.

Lively Limassol

Families, couples, solo travellers and groups – Limassol has something for everyone. Gorgeous gardens, spectacular shopping spots and fascinating art are all on the agenda, while the marina makes the perfect place for a sunshine stroll. Into your history? Check out the Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates.

Sights

Modern-day Larnaca is built on top of the ancient city of Kition. You can see what remains of its temples and shrines at the archaeological site a block or so back from the main harbour. The capital, Nicosia, is within easy day-tripping distance and has a beautiful old town with sandstone walls.  See all sights (20)

Activities

When it comes to things to do in Cyprus, Larnaca’s seas are made for scuba diving, with many reefs, caves and shipwrecks to explore. A dive down to the old ferry is a must, with karting centres, shows, waterparks and museums all making the cut for fun too. There’s something to keep every age entertained.   See all activities (22)
