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.

The capital, Nicosia, is within easy day-tripping distance and has a beautiful old town with sandstone walls.  See all sights (22)

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 (21)
