Larnaka Salt Lake, Larnaka City

(3.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
If you discover chunks of salt emerging from the earth, you may be at Larnaka Salt Lake. This spot serves as a migration point for pink flamingos, and it's home to Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque. Here you'll find a crystal-clear lake reflecting an image of one of the holiest shrines of Ottoman Islam surrounded by palm trees and flamingos--a common image at the site. Stretching across 1,585 hectares (3,920 acres) of scrubland, the lake hosts over 80 species of birds. The lake used to provide vast amounts of salt to the locals. During the dry months now, the entire place turns into a mixture of gray dust and piles of crusted salt.

  • Nice place to stop by on your way from or to the airport. See a variety of birds, with pink flamingos being the most spectacular. They seem to prefer the middle of the lake, quite far to fully appreci...  more »
  • An unspectacular Lake with a handful of flamingos in a more unspektakuläreren environment. I think the placement tells us much about the region of Larnaca.
