Historic Site Tourist Spot
Grab the opportunity to see one of the world's top shipwreck dive sites, Zenobia Wreck. On June 7, 1980, this vessel, carrying over 300 million dollars' worth of goods including cargo of 104 trucks, sank due to a software error just outside of Larnaca port. Numerous extreme divers from all over the world have explored it. The site has become one of the most popular of its kind and was featured by numerous media sources. On a dive, you can observe the ship from some 15 m (50 ft) below the surface, or visit its interior parts and lowest portions, 42 m (138 ft) under the sea.

Where to stay in Larnaka City

A small city, Larnaka's activity and accommodations center around its palm tree-lined seafront. Hotels and apartments on or near the busy main promenade provide easy access to the beach and the area's most popular restaurants; however, this convenience often comes with an increased price tag. Budget-conscious visitors should look for a room on the outskirts, where most of the city's main attractions will still be within walking distance (generally involving a pleasant stroll along the beach), although popping back to your room for forgotten beach supplies will not be as easy.
