Larnaka Salt Lake, Larnaca

#3 of 10 in Parks in Larnaca
If you discover chunks of salt emerging from the earth, you may be at Larnaka Salt Lake. This spot serves as a migration point for pink flamingos, and it's home to Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque. Here you'll find a crystal-clear lake reflecting an image of one of the holiest shrines of Ottoman Islam surrounded by palm trees and flamingos--a common image at the site. Stretching across 1,585 hectares (3,920 acres) of scrubland, the lake hosts over 80 species of birds. The lake used to provide vast amounts of salt to the locals. During the dry months now, the entire place turns into a mixture of gray dust and piles of crusted salt.

  • Nice lake. All kinds of chickens. Promenade around. A little junk around. Not the roaming season. In January, there's a pink flamingo passing through

  • A must visit in Larnaca. The flamingos that visit the lake make the already spectacular view even better. Don’t forget to visit either you are a local or tourist!  more »
