Situated on the south-eastern coast, home of the main international airport, Larnaca is one of the oldest continually inhabited cities in the world. Its trademark, the famous mile-long promenade lined with palm trees, is now a pedestrianised zone, which makes this area’s open-air cafes, tavernas and restaurants even more attractive. At one end of the promenade is a yacht marina and a port and about 200 yards inland lies the town’s main commercial shopping centre, with many department stores and supermarkets. To the west of Larnaca is the beautiful salt lake, home to migratory flamingos and the Mosque of Hala Sultan Tekke, which is the fourth most important shrine to Muslims. Close to Larnaca is the village of Lefkara, famous for its lace and silverware, and the village of Konnos, famous for pottery.
