Driving in Southern Cyprus and Larnaca is on the left making it familiar for visitors from the United Kingdom while traffic lights and road signs will also be recognisable. Many of the narrow streets in Larnaca are one-way but you will have no problem finding your way around with a Sat Nav. Cypriot drivers have a reputation for fast and aggressive driving and are often fairly relaxed about following European driving regulations, especially about seatbelts and using mobile phones. Main roads out of Larnaca, across the island and around the coast are quite well-maintained but nearly half of Cyprus's interior roads have loose surfaces.
Although the beach areas become congested at peak times parking is generally easy in Larnaca. Locals follow parking rules loosely, if there is a space they will use it.
Exploring the narrow streets of Larnaca is fun in your car hire stopping off to call into Saint Lazarus Church. Dating from the 9th-century, the church is said to be built around the tomb of the Virgin Mary's brother. Your children will want to spend a few hours at the WOW Action Park in the centre of town with its soft play, trampolines and climbing walls. Finikoudes is home to Larnaca's marina and lively promenade, a place to relax on family-friendly beaches before finding a bar or restaurant for evening cocktails and dinner. Take a drive to the Larnaca Salt Lake just a couple of miles South of the town. Between November and March flocks of pink flamingos stop here to feed on shrimps.
Many visitors come to Larnaca to learn to dive while experienced divers can explore a famous wreck that lies just outside the port. This is the fairly recent wreck of the roll-on roll-off car ferry Zenobia that sunk in 1980 when she was being delivered to Cyprus from Sweden. Luckily there were no casualties and this recreational dive is now ranked in the world's top ten. If you are new to diving you can explore the exterior of the boat while experienced divers can enter the wreck through the car decks. You might catch a glimpse of the wreck as your plane comes into land at the airport.
If you are interested in traditional island skills then take a drive to Pano Lefkara, a village famous for Cypriot lace, needlecraft and silverwork. Legend has it that Leonardo da Vinci bought an embroidered tablecloth here and donated it to Milan Cathedral. Stroll its narrow cobbled streets and peep into the flower-filled courtyards of the whitewashed stone houses.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site at Khirokitia takes you back into the mists of time. This pretty village is surrounded by citrus groves but most visitors come to explore its Neolithic settlement discovered in 1934. Excavations over the years have uncovered the settlement's main road and circular houses with their murals and burial pits along with tools, jewellery and evidence of a thriving agricultural economy.
Younger family members will never be bored at the Camel Park. The stars of the park are the camels, once used for transporting goods on Cyprus, but there are plenty of other small animals and birds to meet. The park also has inflatables, playgrounds, a swimming pool, aquarium and flight simulator. Plenty for a whole day of fun.
Larnaca is home to the main airport and marina in Southern Cyprus and has been an important seaport since Phoenician times. The extraction and export of salt also used to be an important part of the economy. Today 75% of Larnaca's employment is focused on tourism with many tour operators having their head offices in the town. Many hotels in Larnaca offer meeting facilities but the island's main convention and exhibition venue is the modern Filoxenia Conference Centre at Atalassa.
