'LARNACA' is one of the nicest cities of the island. In the 18th century it became the commercial centre of the island. 'Salt Lake' is one of the most important wetlands in Cyprus. In the summer the water evaporates and salt crystals can be seen. In winter you can see different species of birds besides thousand of flamingoes, wild swans and other migrating birds which fly to Cyprus and settle in this Lake. We visit 'Hala Sultan Tekke' by the Salt Lake. We drive to the old part of Larnaca and park our car. 'Buyuk Camii', 'Larnaca Fort' will be visited. Every visitor who comes to Larnaca must see and walk by 'Phinikoudes'which is the sea front that is lined with palm trees and restaurants and cafes. It only takes two hours to walk from Finikoudes to the Larnaca Fort and in the back streets of the old town. If you like you can enjoy the free time by shopping or swimming in blue waters of Mediterranean sea.
