Cheap flights to Larnaca
One of the most ancient cities in the world at a whopping 6,000 years old, Larnaca is also one of the most beautifully situated. Pristine beaches as far as the eye can see, a majestic palm-lined promenade, Byzantine churches, Ottoman mosques and 17th century forts make this laid-back city one of the most appealing in the Mediterranean.
If you like your holidays with a good dose of culture, some beachside bathing and a lot of fun in the sun then you’ve found your perfect match with a holiday to Larnaca. Located on Cyprus’ south east coast, it’s no secret that it’s Larnaca’s beaches that are the city’s main appeal. And when you see all 8 kilometres of them you’ll quickly understand why.
And this being Cyprus you can expect plenty of fantastic little Greek tavernas, varied accommodation and enough nightlife options to keep you dancing until dawn. But if you really want to let your hair down then head to the livelier beach resorts of Ayia Napa and Nissi Beach which give Ibiza a good run for its money.
