Larnaka Salt Lake, Larnaka City

(3.5/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • Such a lovely place to go and visit. We visited as part of our Cyprus trip, we stayed 2 nights in Larnaka so we could drive to this place.  more »
  • My husband and I visited the Lake saw nothing except a dry place where should be Lake. No flamingos, too. Perhaps at the end of October only and you will not see))) But it's not spoiled the mood, kartometrii that Cyprus is a wonderful place!

  • Very beautiful and stunning Lake Park, which runs along its shore. Sunset here is amazingly beautiful. Lots of flamingos and the fragrance of the trees and shrubs. Be sure to visit!
