Larnaca is a growing tourist area with the main airport of the island only 10 minutes from the sandy beaches of Larnaca. The beaches offer all types of activity, and also many many restaurants and bars. If you want a relaxing and busy holiday all in one come to larnaca, beach, sun, fun, great food, great bars, good nightlife, it is all here, and self catering is best.
