For Cyprus lovers, Larnaca is a firm favourite. The fantastic beaches along its coast offer a safe and scenic place to stay for families and couples especially.
The city itself is busy, but not overwhelming, and this may be a good location for those wanting a central but lively base. It offers a good range of hotels - from budget to smart four-star options.
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.
A great range of apartment rentals, villas and excellent spa and sports resorts are available all along this stretch. Most popular, however, remains Finikoudes - the main beach in Larnaca, backed by the central coastal promenade lined with hotels, shops, bars and restaurants.
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 so may not be ideal for those who love to spend the day on the sands, but it does have a wide promenade lined with hotels, shops, bars and restaurants - it is often favoured by families with young children and older travellers.
Faros Beach, close to the village of Pevolia, is considered a very safe part of the coast due its rock barriers and is really good for young families too. There is ample accommodation on offer, including all-inclusive hotels and rentals.
