Create an itinerary including Larnaka Salt Lake
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 lake is beautiful during the "winter", when there is water and it is full of flamingos. In summer, the lake is completely dry, and the white (salt) color amplifies your feeling of wonder.

  • Near Larnaca there is a salt lake area. We visited the natural habitat of sea life. The central salt lake in prehistoric times was a gulf. Nowdays we could see lots of nice birds: pink flamingos...

  • I thought there would be no water there, just salt.
  • Great at spring time. Many flamingos.
