Larnaka Salt Lake, Larnaka City

(3.4/5 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. Take a look at our Larnaka City travel itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Larnaka Salt Lake and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • In the circumstances, you can watch flamingos, which are not so far from the shore. We recommend to travel for lovers, watch the sunset, which is gorgeous here:)

  • We were a relative large group who walked around Larnaca Salt Lake, or Salt Sea on the Norwegian. The sea must be experienced in the winter, after a few months the Lake is drying out and lying completely bbe thou dried to winter again. Start at the mosque, Muslims ' fourth most important mosque, and then follow the beach from there. Here is around 85 bird species, a wonderful sight for bird enthusiasts.
