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.

  • The place of the mentioned is a mosque who is already present from a distance and the main road that leads to the airport Larnaca.To short stretch of the road about 10 minutes by car from the city center. This mosque is characterized by beautiful believers and is doing the impression of seeing from afar. Inside there are carpets of tapestries in the color of purple and carpets on the Podlodze, before the entrance you need to remove the footwear. When the outside is hot, however, inside the mosque is a coolness and the seriousness of the place is highly recommended due to the possibility to make a photo and a super souvenir. In the vicinity of the Slone lake is worth seeing the life of the nice moments Stanislaw

  • Very nice landscape. Great place. Recommended.
  • If you love flamingo you should visit in summer time and you will see a lot of Flamingo in this Lake. Nothing is special... there is no restaurant no hotel but if you love natural then you should go and visit..
