How to Spend 3 Days in Larnaca

How to Spend 3 Days in Larnaca

With three days in Larnaca, you have time to get a feel for the city—from its historic sites to its sandy beaches—and take a day trip into the surrounding regions for a look at more traditional Cyprus. Here’s how.

 

Day 1: Highlights of the Historic Old Town

Devote your first day in Larnaca to getting to know the old part of the city and taking in its many attractions. Highlights include the Church of Saint Lazarus, Larnaca Castle, Kition Archeological Site, Larnaca Salt Lake, and Hala Sultan Tekke mosque. Join a walking tour with a local guide to learn about area offerings and history. If you like wine, sign up for a wine tasting session at the family-run Oak Tree Wine Cellar, where all sorts of Cypriot wines are available to sample. For dinner, try a food walking tour, an easy way for first-timers to learn more about local cuisine.

 

Day 2: Seaside Fun

On your second day, take advantage of the city’s coastal position. Start with Finikoudes Beach, the most popular beach in town, located right along the coast of the old city. Hop between the cafes and beach and try your hand at watersports such as kitesurfing and stand-up paddleboarding. If you’re on your honeymoon or simply want memorable vacation photos, hire a local photographer for a mini photo shoot, at the beach or in historic old town. If you’d rather spend the day at sea, prebook a full-day trip out to sea for snorkeling or fishing; these trips often come with plenty of included extras, such as barbecue lunches. If you want to get out on the water for just a few hours, charter a sunset cruise for you and your party.

Day 3: A Day in Rural Cyprus

On your last day, head inland to immerse yourself in local Cypriot culture. The most economical way to do this is by joining a tour—especially if you plan to imbibe as Cyprus’s winding mountain roads and wine do not mix. Pick a tour that matches your interests; choices range from wine tours that take you straight to mountain vineyards to cultural and scenic tours that focus on inland monasteries and natural sites. To take your love of Cypriot cuisine to the next level, book a food tour that might involve a stop in a local village to sample specialty dishes, a trip to a traditional market to shop for ingredients, and the opportunity to cook (and eat) a meal yourself.
