Larnaca

There are several beaches lining the coast of Larnaca starting at the city's central promenade and heading north to the Larnaca Bay area and south to the cape at Kiti. Larnaca beaches have ample sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, fine sand and calm shallow water ideal for swimming and for kids paddling the usual watersports such as jet skis, windsurfing and paragliding as well as scuba diving around the Zenobia shipwreck which lies just offshore.

Finikoudes is the main beach in Larnaca, backed by the central coastal promenade lined with hotels, shops, bars and restaurants. A beach of fine grey sand and the sea is shallow making it ideal for families with young children; facilities include showers, toilets and lifeguards in the summer season.

Around 2.5km south of Larnaca centre and at the end of the airport runway is the popular McKenzie Beach, the beach is quite narrow though around 1km long and is backed by a wide promenade lined with hotels, shops, bars and restaurants.

Faros Beach is a small and quiet beach 12km south of Larnaca, close to the village of Pevolia. Protected offshore by rock barriers make this an ideal choice for families with small children, facilities include a beach bar, watersports and lifeguards during the summer season.
